Lady Gaga hit by stage pole

LADY Gaga has been struck on the head by a pole while performing a concert in New Zealand.

The singer was hit during the third of three shows in Auckland.

Clips posted online show a back-up performer accidentally striking Gaga with the set prop while removing it from the central stage.

Gaga, holding a mock machine gun, staggered and rubbed her head before briefly leaving the stage. She continued the show, part of a world tour.
