“We are in conversations with the promoter for the event in order to gain an understanding about what led to the cancellation, and if there is anything we can do as a city to find a new date or location for her show,” Mayor Ed Gainey said.

“People are FLIPPING OOOOUUT!!! NO,” one user lamented, while another wrote, “I can’t even take my refund and go get ticket at another show because the resale prices are extremely high.”

Beyoncé, who kicked off her world tour on May 10 in Stockholm, Sweden, recently ended the European leg of her trek in Warsaw, Poland, on June 28.

Beyoncé is set to begin the North American leg of her tour on July 8 in Toronto, Canada. The trek will end in Kansas City, Missouri, on October 1.
