Besides Lyon, originally announced on June 6, 2023 before being taken down, concerts in London, Amsterdam and Toronto have also been removed from the popstar’s official website.
Beyoncé’s Lyon fans weren’t the only ones to have the nasty surprise of learning that the popstar wouldn’t be performing in their city after all. While the singer has just announced her world tour “Renaissance World Tour”, several concert dates, initially displayed on its official websitehave since disappeared and some place names have been changed, leaving its public perplexed.
“France is not the only country where there have been date announcement problems, in the United Kingdom too”, specifies the turner of Beyoncé, Live Nation, to BFM Lyon.
In addition to Lyon, originally announced on June 6, 2023 before being deleted, a concert date in London, scheduled for June 2, as well as a show in Amsterdam (June 18) and Toronto (July 9) no longer appear on Beyoncé’s official website
According to Live Nation, it would be a leak between the dates originally envisaged for the tour of the American singer and those finally confirmed. “It’s confusing, we’re sorry Beyoncé fans,” they added.
City names changed
Other shells were also observed on the site before it was updated. On the original list, for example, the city of Nashville had been misspelled and changed to “Nasville”.
As for the location of the July 29, 2023 concert, announced at Metlife Stadium in New York, it was later replaced by the city of East Rutherford, where the stadium in question is actually located. Same modification for the July 3 show at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, originally announced in Los Angeles.
These errors obviously did not escape the radar of fans who were quick to express their dissatisfaction on social networks. “Omg there’s only one show in Toronto now…Beyonce why do you hate us so much?”, a user tweets.
“Someone on Beyoncé’s site is changing stuff in real time. […] Can someone explain to us what is going on,” added another user on Twitter.
Beyoncé fans will therefore have to fall back on the updated dates of the “Renaissance World Tour”. In France, tickets for the concerts in Paris – on May 26 at the Stade de France – and Marseille on June 11 will go on sale on Tuesday February 7 from 10 a.m.
