After some will-she-won’t-she questioning about Queen Bey’s ability to perform at Coachella this year, sources originally confirmed that prep for her big gigs was still underway.
However, now her representation has confirmed that she’s backing out of the festival.
“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,” the Coachella promoters said in a statement.
However, they also revealed she will be headlining–in 2018. It’s only fitting that she’ll be allowed to headline next year. But fans who bought tickets wanting to see her this year will have to hold out a bit longer.
