Beyonce (pictured) just closed the curtain on her forthcoming show in Nashville, Tennesee, which was one of the stops on her well-publicized national Formation Tour.
TMZ dished the news on Friday (April 29th) via the international gossip column’s official website. The bombshell revelation came just two days after the 34-year-old megastar began her Formation Tour in Miami last Wednesday (April 27th).
The “Crazy In Love” hitmaker began her new tour just four days after the out-of-the-blue debut of her sixth album “Lemonade.” However, the abrupt cancellation of her latest tour stop has not been thoroughly explained by Beyonce, her publicist or any other member of her staff.
Live Nation, the major concert promotion agency backing Beyonce’s tour did release a statement to Us Weekly confirming that the Nashville leg on the star songstress’s tour was indeed postponed until further notice.
“Following Wednesday’s sold out opening night Formation World Tour concert in Miami, promoters Live Nation announced that the Nashville concert previously scheduled for Thursday, May 5th will be rescheduled,” a Live Nation representative told Us Weekly in an official statement.
“Details about the rescheduled date will be announced shortly and Nashville tickets holders are advised to retain their tickets, which will be honored at the rescheduled event. … Live Nation apologizes for any inconvenience,” the rep continued.
The concert was booked at the vast venue Nissan Stadium, which is where the Tennesse Titans NFL franchise plays its home games. Word circulated on Twitter that the principals at Nissan Stadium were not prepared to host such a large event at the stadium prior to the last-minute cancellation.
However, reps for Nissan Stadium’s front office vehemently denied these rumors. “Nissan Stadium was ready and able to host the May 5 Beyoncé show, and we look forward to the rescheduled event,” reps for the stadium said on Twitter.
Other upcoming tour dates have not been affected by the Nashville cancellation so far. At press time, no official re-scheduling date for Nashville had been confirmed.
