Beyoncé’s Pittsburgh fans irrevocably broken. Acrisure Stadium, which was set to host the Renaissance world tour on Aug. 3, shared a statement via social media announcing that the concert has been canceled “due to production logistics and scheduling issues.
Two September shows in Seattle and Kansas City were rescheduled, with both locations also citing “production logistics and scheduling issues” as the reasons. Seattle’s was moved to the next day and Kansas City’s was changed to a couple of weeks later.
Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Gainey joined fans in their disappointment in a tweet on Wednesday, telling the public, “We were fully prepared to welcome her to Pittsburgh and honor her with an official day recognizing her visit and accomplishments.
Offering a glimmer of hope, the statement said, “We are in conversations with the promoter for the event in order to gain an understanding about what led to the cancellation, and if there is anything we can do as a city to find a new date or location for her show. Elsewhere online, members of the Bey Hive channeled their frustration into memes. Beyoncé Renaissance tour news got the Pittsburgh chapter of the beyhive in shambles,” someone tweeted.
“Raise your hand if you’ve been personally victimized by @beyonce canceling her Pittsburgh show,” another person posted.
Due to production challenges with Beyoncé’s stage setup and scheduling conflicts with some of the venues hosting The #RENAISSANCEWorldTour, the following changes have been made:
Pittsburgh: 8/3 date cancelled
Seattle: 9/13 date moved to 9/14
Kansas City: 9/18 date moved to 10/1 pic.twitter.com/XGDk7XUSAM
