Beyonce has apologized to disappointed fans in Belgium after doctor’s advised her to cancel her May 14 concert due to “dehydration and exhaustion.”
The singer had been due to perform at Antwerp’s Sport Paleis arena as part of her “Mrs. Carter Show” world tour, which kicked off on April 15.
Concert promoters and Beyonce have said the show will be rescheduled and that her performance at the same venue will go ahead tonight as planned.
The mother-of-one’s handwritten note, which was posted to her website, read:
“To my dearest fans in Antwerp. I’ve never postponed a show in my life. It was very hard for me. I promise I will make it up very soon. I’m sorry if I disappointed you. Thank you for your concern. I’m feeling much better now and I’m ready to give you a great show. See you tonight. All my love. Beyonce.”
The cancellation comes just days after the New York Post claimed pregnancy rumors about the 31-year-old were circulating on blogs, adding that they had been sparked by on-tour images of the singer and her appearance at last week’s Met Gala in New York City.
As yet there has been no comment from Beyonce’s representatives about the pregnancy rumors. Since they surfaced, sources have denied the story.
The Houston native’s 60-date world tour takes in European dates up until June 1, when the singer will perform a charity concert alongside other high profile artists at London’s Twickenham Stadium.
The tour then moves stateside and will include dates in Toronto, Los Angeles, Oklahoma, Dallas, New Orleans, Miami, Atlanta, Beyonce’s hometown Houston, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, before wrapping on August 5 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
It’s been rumored that Jay-Z will likely join his wife onstage at one of the three scheduled Barclays Center shows.
Beyonce is also headlining the UK’s V Festival with Kings of Leon in August.
