There is a silver lining for disappointed fans, though.

Beyoncé has been forced to cancel her headlining appearance at this year’s Coachella festival, on doctor’s orders.

Fans of the ‘Formation’ singer had been speculating whether she’d be taking to the stage ever since she announced earlier this month that she was pregnant with twins, and she’s now confirmed she will be unable to perform, for medical reasons.

However, they went on to reveal that she had already been confirmed to headline in 2018 instead.

It’s yet to be confirmed who will replace her on the line-up for the festival, held in April, with Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar already headlining on the other two nights.

Shortly after her pregnancy announcement, which she made on her Instagram page, Beyoncé gave a stunning and elaborate performance at the Grammys, during which she appeared in goddess-like attire and sang ‘Lemonade’ tracks ‘Love Drought’ and ‘Sandcastles’.
