Just three days after kicking off her Formation World Tour with a sold-out show in Miami, Florida, Beyonce has announced that she's canceling her May 5, 2016 show in Nashville, Tennessee. We aren't sure how Bey's Nashville fans are going to make lemonade out of these lemons!
"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 spokesperson for Live Nation said in a statement to Us Weekly.
The rep continued, "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 reason for the postponed is unclear, but an unofficial twitter account for the Formation World Tour, called @FormationWT, stated the cancellation was due to "stadium construction."
However, a Twitter account for the Nissan Stadium, which is home to the Tennessee Titans, tweeted, "Nissan Stadium was ready and able to host the May 5 Beyoncé show, and we look forward to the rescheduled event."
The new date has not been announced and TMZ is reporting that no other concert dates on the tour will be affected by the change in plans.
The cancellation, comes less than a week after 'Yonce surprised the world by debuting her headline-making, revolutionary visual album, Lemonade, after airing a special on April 23 on HBO.
The album has been the talk of the town since its release for a variety of reasons, namely Bey's lyrics which illuminated marriage issues with husband Jay Z. A number of songs on the album mae several references to cheating and infidelity.
During "Denial," the 34-year-old is seen smashing things with a baseball bat and directly saying, "Are you cheating on me?"
In her song "Sorry," the "Single Ladies" singer calls out the alleged mistress by refering to her as: "Becky with the good hair." The moniker quickly become a meme and an instant catchphrase, heard all over both the Internet and television. From Rachel Roy to Rita Ora and more, many have speculated about the true identity of "Becky with the good hair," but nothing has been confirmed.
Some people are even claiming to be this "Becky" (we don't understand why anyone would want to admit that and anger the Beyhive) -- but video vixen Karrine Steffans just came out with an essay called "I Am Becky With The Good Hair" for XOJane, in which she claims she had a fling with Jay z (and writes a pretty detailed account of it) back in 2000 (pre Beyonce). Of course, our favorite person who said she's the real "Becky with the Good Hair" is Bette Midler, who joked on Twitter that she's was the mystery woman.
Despite all the controversy, Bey and Jay seem okay. During her Miami concert, the Queen told the crowd, "I want to dedicate this song to my family, thank you guys for supporting me. I want to dedicate this song to my beautiful husband, I love you so much."
Bye, bye Becky, whoever you are …
