Regardless of how you were feeling about this year’s Coachella lineup, there was one inarguable fact: Beyoncé. But alas, the dream is over (for now). Beyoncé just announced that she will no longer be headlining this year’s festival on account of the fact that she’s pregnant with twins.
“Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyonce has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival,” said a statement by Beyoncés Parkwood Entertainment. “However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding.”
I totally understand. In fact, what wasn’t understandable was the very fact that Beyoncé was planning on giving a Beyoncé-level performance (as if she’d ever deliver anything less) in her second trimester. However, I bet some ticket-holders will be less understanding.
Meanwhile, I pity the fool who has to replace Beyoncé.
