Beyoncé bumps back Ford Field concert

Beyoncé is still coming to Detroit, just a little later than planned.

The superstar singer’s Ford Field concert has been pushed to June 14, promoters announced Friday. Other details about the show, originally scheduled for May 29, remain intact: Tickets still go on sale to the general public on Feb. 22, with pre-sales for members of Beyoncé’s Beyhive and American Express cardholders starting on Feb. 15. Prices are TBA.

Think of it this way: Fans planning on spending Memorial Day weekend at Detroit’s Movement festival no longer have a conflict.

The concert is part of Bey’s “Formation” tour, and will mark her first area concert since her Mrs. Carter Show tour hit The Palace of Auburn Hills in July 2013.

Along with the tour, the singer has announced plans to support victims of Flint’s water crisis through her #BeyGOOD initiative. Specifics have yet to be announced, but she’s driving support toward local United Way programs, including the United Way of Genesee County and the Community Foundation of Grater Flint, with the goal of addressing “long-term developmental, education, nutrition and health needs” of children affected by the water issues in Flint.
