The show went ahead, with Lana taking to Twitter to thank her fans for coming.

Orlando! Fort Lauderdale! Miami! Thank you so much for coming out and making those shows totally crazy and keeping…

But at her latest show, Lana showed how the strain of the events had affected her, appearing visibly emotional while on stage.

lana started crying on stage talking about the stalker incident from a few days ago :(

In between songs, she said that she was "actually feeling a little more emotional than I thought after what happened in Orlando".

She continued, saying "But I just really wanted to be here with you guys tonight and actually, I was feeling totally fine and then I just got, I don't know, a little bit nervous right when I got on stage."

Asking fans to bear with her if she was "a little bit feathery" during the show, Lana then proved that she was feeling stronger by saying "I really do think it's important that you can't let one person stop you from doing your favourite things."

I think we can all agree.
