Beyonce’s youngest sister Solange Knowles has decided to cancel her European tour so that she can focus on her physical and mental health. She made a statement on her website that said that she was heartbroken and devastated to have to cancel the international festivals that she was to play at, but she needed to be able to balance her home life with her work life. Her son was starting out in a new school, she had just moved to a new city, and she was also working on her new album. She thought that this was the best solution for everyone involved.

Knowles recently moved from Los Angeles all the way to Brooklyn. Her eight year old son Daniel Jules and her love, music video director Alan Ferguson, moved out with her. She had nine international dates set up in countries including Poland, Finland, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, and Portugal. She said she is sorry if she had disappointed anyone and would be hoping to book those cities someday soon.

Earlier this month Solange performed at Glastonbury, however she canceled her appearances at Yorkshire’s Beacons and London’s Koko festivals. She states that motherhood is a very delicate balancing act and it wasn’t easy. They were isolated when they were living in LA as they didn’t have family or friends around. Now that they are in New York, they have many family members and good support systems around to help them when life becomes a struggle. She speaks with her sister almost every day.

Solange says that being a new mother is already hard enough but then you have to hear advice come from other mothers who are quick to tell you what you are doing wrong but not what they can do to help fix it, it makes it even harder. She feels much happier now being near her sister.

    Ho Hum….She should be used to motherhood since her son is not a newborn. She probably couldn’t sell tickets so the shows were cancelled.

  6. So since she is used to motherhood that means she can’t cancel because she wants to be around for her child? I don’t have children but I have 2 nephews that I love to see any chance I get and I want to be around them. Her shows for the size they are have alway sold out in my. She isn’t a stadium seat seller but solange does pretty good for the hipster crowd and anyone not into the mainstream music

    She actually has a nice CD out right now and she's pretty big overseas. Most unseen American Artists hit it big overseas.

  8. Everyone does not have the ability to handle motherhood and singing gigs too. There are a lot of folks that claim everyone can multitask but that’s not so, especially the young mothers of today. You have to be raised up multitasking and most of todays mothers were not. Of course I have never heard her sing either. I don’t purchase her sisters songs so I know I would not purchase hers either. Guess I am just old school, love the music of the 60’s, 70’s where people could really sing with or without an electronic instrument.

    • Just so you know her music and her sisters are a world apart. Solanges 2nd album is was created with a Motown sound. A couple of Marvin esq cuts. Her current album is closer to an 80s sound. But again the two have completely different sounds
