Le Duh: Beyoncé Will Not Perform At Coachella This Year

February 23, 2017  |  

I know I couldn’t have been the only one who noticed that when Beyoncé took the stage to read her acceptance speech, she seemed a bit winded. I remember thinking, unless she will have already given birth by April, then there’s no way she’s going to be able to perform, in the middle of the desert, pregnant with twins.

She’s good but she’s not that good. And really, what type of performance would that have been?

Anyway, today the Associated Press, reported the inevitable that Beyoncé will not perform in Coachella this year. But will headline the festival in 2018.

AP received a statement from Parkwood Entertainment and festival producer Goldenvoice that said Knowles-Carter pulled out under doctor’s orders.

“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. However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding.”
