According to reports, “production logistics and scheduling issues” forced the cancellation of Pittsburgh Renaissance Tour of Beyoncé.

After the Pittsburgh performance was postponed, Beyoncé fans in the Steel City might need to go elsewhere to see her Renaissance World Tour.

The 41-year-old singer of “Break My Soul” was slated to appear at Acrisure Stadium on August 3. The event was, however, postponed on Wednesday, according to the venue, “due to production logistics and scheduling issues.” The location said in a statement that refunds will be given to customers at the place of purchase.

Mayor of Pittsburgh Ed Gainey declared that the city was “fully prepared” to welcome Beyoncé and that she would even be given a “official day” to celebrate her achievements.

Here's Why the Pittsburgh Renaissance Tour of Beyoncé  Was Cancelled

Although it has already been taken from her tour website, Beyoncé hasn’t commented on the cancellation of the Pittsburgh performance. There are no dates mentioned between her gig at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on August 1 and the performances at FedExField in Landover, Maryland, on August 5 and 6.

On May 10, the Renaissance World Tour kicked off in Stockholm. Beyoncé will launch the North American part of the tour in Toronto on Saturday after wrapping up the European leg. On October 1, the tour is expected to come to an end in Kansas City, Missouri.

Despite having “logistics and scheduling issues,” the Kansas City show was rescheduled. The performance was originally slated for Sept. 18, but on Wednesday, GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium announced a change of date to Oct. 1.

Beyoncé’s eldest child with husband JAY-Z, Blue Ivy Carter, joined her mother during performances of “My Power” and “Black Parade” during the singer’s tour stop in Paris. Blue Ivy joined her mother’s backup dancers and wore a matching silver costume to Beyoncé’s performance.

“Give it up for Blue,” Beyoncé told the crowd, which broke into a roaring applause.
