Beyonce Reps Deny Hurricane Concert Reports

Beyonce reps are denying reports the singer will return to the stage for a hurricane benefit concert.

(AllHipHop News) A representative for Beyonce has dismissed a report suggesting the new mom will return to the stage with husband Jay-Z for a hurricane benefit concert next month.

Editors at Us Weekly magazine alleged the "Drunk in Love" collaborators were planning to hit the stage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on October 17 to raise funds for the victims of hurricanes like Harvey, Irma, and Maria, and this week’s devastating earthquake in Mexico.

The event would have marked the first performance for Beyonce since welcoming twins Rumi and Sir in June, but a representative for the superstar tells RollingStone.com the reports of her live comeback are “false."

The unfounded rumors of her stage return appear to stem from the couple’s plans to produce its third annual Tidal X concert at the Barclays Center on the same date.

Details for the Tidal X: Brooklyn concert were unveiled on Friday, although it’s currently unclear if JAY-Z will be among the performers.

The show will be hosted by U.S. radio personality Angie Martinez, with the lineup set to be announced in the near future.

Proceeds from the Tidal X event will benefit natural disaster relief organizations including Global Giving, Direct Relief, Greater Houston Community Foundation, and many others.

Although Beyonce will not be headlining the concert next month, the singer has been donating her time and resources to relief efforts in her hometown of Houston, Texas, which suffered severe flooding damage in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in late August.

Beyonce visited St. Johns Church, her childhood place of worship, with her mother Tina Lawson and daughter Blue earlier this month to serve lunch to 400 flood victims on behalf of the R&B superstar’s BeyGOOD charity organization.

She also took part in last week’s "Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief" telethon, which helped raise over $55 million for the cause.
