Beyoncé Postponed Her Show In Nashville

Okay ladies now let's get information.

Beyoncé Postponed Her Show In Nashville

This article was originally going to be named "What It's Like To Go To A Beyoncé Concert," but recent events have made this title a moot point.

Hello, it's me, Shanika Parker reporting live from not the Beyonce concert, because it got postponed.

I, like so many others, have fallen victim to Beyoncé and her flawlessness. I am quite possibly her biggest fan. If you know me well, you would know that my friend Mikaela and I were planning on seeing said flawless goddess in Nashville on May 5. We had dresses and Instagram captions picked out and ready for action. It was going to be the best concert in the history of the universe, but alas, Beyoncé postponed the concert.

Why, you ask? Well, that's the kicker. According to many articles and sources, Beyoncé never released a formal statement as to the reason for postponing.

According to The Tennessean,

"Beyoncé will reschedule her May 5 show at Nashville's Nissan Stadium, according to the show's promoter."

Live Nation announced the news in a statement Friday. The statement did not give a reason for the delay, and a spokesman declined to discuss the reason for the "postponement."

According to the Nashville Scene,

"According to Live Nation, Beyoncé's appearance at Nissan Stadium, originally slated for May 5, has been rescheduled for Oct. 2. Tickets for the previously scheduled performance will be honored at the new date."

There were also sources who said that the Nissan Stadium was not ready for Beyoncé to perform. Ultimately, Nissan Stadium confirmed that they were, in fact, ready for the queen.

TMZ tweeted a link to their article about the stadium not being ready, to which Nissan tweeted back saying they were ready. The Formation Tour twitter also tweeted about the stadium not being ready.

Whether the stadium was ready or not, (it was) Beyoncé never released a statement telling her fans why she needed to postpone the tour date.

Rumors swirled all over the internet about different theories as to why Beyoncé might postpone a tour date. Several people I've personally talked to say it's due to the date not being sold out, however, when this all went down (and even now), there were quite a few dates that were also not sold out. There was no word about those dates being postponed or canceled.

Many fans are outraged. I am one of those fans.

In all my years of going to concerts, not one of them have been postponed or cancelled. My mom, who is even more seasoned in the world of concert going, has never had a concert postponed or cancelled on her either. So I'm a little confused.

I remember one time I went to a concert when there were literal tornados outside and the band kept playing. Beyoncé herself played through a storm on May 3rd in North Carolina, but she can't release a statement.

Another cause of outrage is the fact that the makeup concert is five months from the original date. Which would be bad enough, but did I mention that this rescheduled date is on a Sunday night? I don't know about you, but I do not have time to drive from Stark to Nash and back all on a Sunday and then go back to class on Monday. While, nothing is impossible, and it could be done, I shouldn't have to be worrying about this kind of thing during the school year/football season/marching season/etc. when I planned to go in the summertime.

Now, I'm not a crazy person. I know that things happen. Maybe Beyoncé was tired. Maybe she wanted to build some sand castles, or work on her marriage, or spend time with her family or literally anything she could possibly want to do.

My problem is that she never said anything to her fans. She owes it to the people who paid hundreds or even thousands of dollars on tickets to the show, who went out of their way to get hotels or plane tickets, who took off work, etc. to tell them why she had to postpone the concert.

So to Beyoncé I say, you done goofed.

She'll always be my queen, and I hope there is some way for Mikaela and I to get to go to this concert, but I am in fact very irritated.

All my love,


Please enjoy this picture of Mikaela and I in the dresses we would have worn:

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
