Beyoncé Cancels Pittsburgh Tour Stop at Acrisure Stadium



Beyoncé Pittsburgh

Beyoncé will not be making her scheduled Renaissance World Tour stop in Pittsburgh at Acrisure Stadium on Aug. 3.

The stadium’s social media page announced the cancellation on Wednesday, citing production logistics and scheduling issues. The singer has not publicly acknowledged the cancellation.

The 41-year-old singer just returned from the opening European leg of her tour, which opened in May in Stockholm, Sweden. Her first North American tour dates are scheduled for Rogers Centre in Toronto on July 8 and 9.

Two other tour dates were modified, with the Seattle show being moved back one day and the Kansas City date being pushed back two weeks. The closest stop to Pittsburgh will now be a date at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on July 12.

She is also playing at NFL venues in Nashville, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Charlotte, Atlanta, Tampa, Miami, Glendale, Las Vegas, Santa Clara, Los Angeles, Arlington, Houston and New Orleans.

The tour is in support of her album, Renaissance, which was released last July and won awards as the American Music Awards, Bet Awards and Grammy Awards.

According to the stadium press release, refunds will be automatically issued by ticket sellers from the point of purchase. Fans should reach out to their point of purchase if they have an issue claiming their refund.

Beyoncé making the trip to Pittsburgh was expected to be the fifth concert at the stadium in 2023. Country singer Luke Combs played at Acrisure Stadium in April and pop star Taylor Swift played two shows on June 16 and 17, setting the stadium’s all-time attendance record in the process. Ed Sheeran’s Mathematics Tour is scheduled to come to town on July 8.
