The Beyonce Renaissance Tour stop scheduled for Aug. 3 at Acrisure Stadium has been canceled.
According to a social media post from Acrisure, the date was removed “due to production logistics and scheduling issues.”
Refunds will be automatically issued at the point of purchase.
The tour was scheduled to move from Boston on Aug. 1 to Pittsburgh on Aug. 3 to Washington, D.C. on Aug. 5. Other changes to the tour: Seattle was moved from Sept. 13 to Sept. 14 and Kansas City from Sept. 18 to Oct. 1.
The 41-year-old pop icon is touring behind her seventh album, “Renaissance,” which topped the charts in July 2022.
The tour, her first since 2018, launched in May in Sweden and just wrapped the European leg in Warsaw, Poland, on June 27. The North American leg begins July 8 in Toronto and will run through September.
This would have been the first Beyonce show here in eight years. In Pittsburgh, thousands of tickets were still available, as low as $50. In Boston, the lowest price is $239 and in D.C., it’s $279.
At her previous Pittsburgh show, on The Formation Tour on May 31, 2016, Beyonce drew 36,325 to Acrisure.
The show was slated to be the final concert on the summer schedule for Acrisure Stadium, following sold-out shows by country star Luke Combs and Taylor Swift (two nights) and the upcoming Ed Sheeran Mathematics Tour stop Saturday.
Pittsburgh singer/rapper Mars Jackson tweeted, “Beyoncé didn’t know how important this moment was for our black community here in Pittsburgh. We did though. Not to put the pressure on her like that but her presence was needed for us this Summer. This was going to be my first experience beside YouTube or a streaming service.”
Pittsburgh rapper Livefromthecity tweeted, “It doesn’t sit well with me that this is happening to Beyoncé but the city got renamed for Taylor Swift.”
The Beyonce cancellation follows another pop icon, Madonna, recently scrapping her tour, including an August show at PPG Paints Arena, due to health issues.
On the subject of “production logistics,” a stadium official asked that we reach out to promoter Live Nation for comment. We are awaiting a response.
