Solange Knowles unexpectedly canceled her appearance at the Boston Calling festival so she can be present in the delivery room when her sister Beyonce delivers her twins over the holiday weekend.

The 30-year-old Cranes in the Sky singer blamed "production delays" for the abrupt cancelation that left her fans disappointed.

Maybe her fans would understand if they knew the real reason -- that she's clearing her schedule in anticipation of her nephews' arrival.

"Unfortunately, Solange is unable to perform due to production delays and complications beyond her control," organizers at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Boston wrote in a social media post late Thursday.

The singer addressed her angry fans on social media.

"I'm really really sorry/sad about this but I fought hard to only give u my best, & tons of production drama/delays got all up in the way," she wrote on Friday.

She promised to make it up to her fans at a later date.

"I'm coming back though to do a one off show. Making it my mission. I will give it, and you my all."

Rappers Migos were called on to replace Solange at the festival. The lineup includes headliners Chance the Rapper and Bon Iver, along with other local acts.

    Beyonce is really having Gemini Twins

    Wasn't there an old song she used to sing about horoscopes and she was saying. something sweet about Geminies?

    Side question what is a good dating site that leads to marriage??

  • Mbailey

    CAMEL twins. A special hybrid.......Four sets of hooves are gonna hurt like heck though! She is our two-humped lady of camelocity!

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Why the fukk she ain't been canceled? She knew they were coming and she had a conflict. Bad business

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Lol!

  • NicoleZee

    Girlfriend, most of these online dating sites are trash. It's mostly men lying about who they are and what they want. They mostly want sex but are too much of a coward to just say so. Cut your losses now and just meet someone the old fashioned way and hope for the best! XOXO

  • Miami8981

    Umm, I was just watching Hardball on MSNBC and Drump's hair plugs were blowing in the wind. I kid you not. While he was talking all you could see was orange/blond clogs of hair blowing away from his head. What's next with this orange ninja? Oh, the daughter and son-in-law going down with him. In the words of Jack Bauer from 24 DAMN IT!!! I'm counting the days until this mofo is impeached or resigns.

  • NicoleZee

    All the suspense is killing us! Just like when Princess Kate was due.....pandemonium!!! We're ready for these twins already. She is going to have a handful but blessed that she can hire some help. I hope she has healthy beautiful babies! I remember my C-section.....complete hell.....but also a complete blessing! Good luck to her whenever she's due!

    Girrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrllllllllll. If I can FINALLY shake this one....NEVER again in LIFE, and I am a never say never type of person, but I MEAN THAT......NEVER again in life.

  • Chuck

    I hate Solange's songs- all of them! She is riding her sister's fame. She is no more than just a lady, who was knocked up at 16!

  • hotntot95

    Lol..I just got tired of the mind games so I bounced and I never got closure bc a Gemini won't ever give in or admit to being wrong...everrrr

  • leapyearpisces

    Hots, girl if ONLY YOU knew....but everything you said is SPOT on. Master manipulators, and they NEVER address things head on, they wait until enough time has passed, and pop up like they haven't did a damn thing wrong. They ARE DIABOLICAL, and for clarification, we are talking about the male Geminis. I haven't any issues with female Gems though, but I don't really have any female Geminis in my inner circle, my inner circle of females include an Aquarius, an Aries, two cancers, and a Capricorn.

  • tintin

    She's a pretty girl

  • Allihave2say

    What kind of tom foolery is going on with these "artists" schedule concerts and tours then bailing out after people have invested their money. Janet knew she wanted a baby. Solange knew when they plan to take the twins from the surrogate. Kanye knew he was sick of Kim and mad at Bey & JZ. Do your damn job.

  • Allihave2say

    "She is riding her sister's fame." Let this played out feeling go! Everyone rode on someone's fame to get a snapshot at their own fame.

  • Allihave2say

    I'm saying. I want to put in my order now to be finished by the end of the year and snapped back for the New Year.

  • Allihave2say

    "pandemonium!!! " WHERE? WHO?

  • Allihave2say

    Beyonce and her love of numerology is crazy enough to have the twins induced early to fall in line with her numbers. Her b'day, the wedding day, Blue Ivy's b'day and now as you pointed out Gemini (twins) are all rooted in her practice of sorcery.

  • Allihave2say

    MsTinaLawson said on Instagram a girl and boy. So I heard.

  • V Dubb

    You do know that makes us end up with Pence......and he is Satan!

  • V Dubb

    Its her right and states it in most fine print that they have the option....It's ok....all 20 of the black people that had tickets will get abother show. Cause I know those bigots up there weren't trying to see her woke ass

  • Junkanoo

    I have noticed shortly after celebs annouce their expecting 5months later theyre having the baby its really odd

  • Junkanoo

    People need to forget about impeachment Pence is far more psycotic than Trump .The best one can hope for is Trump wont get a second term

  • JackieBrown

    No (bigots) up here. The concert is being held on Harvard's sports complex. You obviously have never been (up there). Cambridge is full of black folks, not just 20. Think you got your numbers wrong. You should probably take a few math classes @ MIT.

  • Nonya Bizness

    Oh No. I do Not envy them. 4 new personalities in the mix. No thanks. I'm a Gemini and I love our quirks, but I don't want to date or birth one lol.

  • Keekz

    Lmao. He doesn't have the sense or self respect to resign.

  • Nonya Bizness

    I'm a Gemini and My ex Husband and Best Friend are Libra. I do believe those signs go well together. Gemini needs the scales of the Libra to balance us out. He's my ex, but that had more to do with me than him. Aries are my favorite though.

  • Keekz

    ?WTF???

  • Nonya Bizness

    June 8. Kanye and I have the same birthday. He's 3 years younger than I am.

  • Nonya Bizness

    "We the Best". Never know who you're gonna get :-) I love us lol.

  • Arii

    Luckily they have a job where they can do this and still have fans. Aka Lauren Hill.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Happy Birthday twin!!

  • Faithz

    I hope trump don't lose one of them plugs out of his head, and secret service has to stop him from talking with his hands to get some more super glue to put plug back in place, just saying.
    Beyonce them know exactly the date and time they are going to take them babies out of the Oven.

  • Faithz

    Isn't Bey having a c section, Solange?

  • Faithz

    Exactly She will pick the date for their birth, if she don't have to override the Doctors.

  • Faithz

    W e will know in a week or two., if not sooner.

  • Faithz

    Yes she was, and rightfully so.

  • Faithz

    With her having twins, it's going to be all hands on deck, except her Papa old silly as.

  • Faithz

    The Sisters has always seemed close to me.

  • Faithz

    Rolling Lol.

  • Faithz

    Might be, we will know this time next week, They are so Private you know, OR at least they want to be Private.

  • Faithz

    I wish them health and happiness with their new bundles of Love.

  • Allihave2say

    Yeah! Lucky for them! To me it seems a bit disrespectful and disregarding of the people who make them stars. You agree? If I cancelled on my customers I'd have no business. I think they should be held to a higher standard of performance.

  • hottlanta

    She is cancelling due to low ticket sales and using Bey as an excuse. Bey will have nurses/doctors around her. Solange doesn't have any medical training so she can sing and see her after the babies are born.

  • what?why

    The Carters know when those babies are being born - Solange needs to go sit down somewhere.

  • OP2

    "Solange doesn't have any medical training so she can sing and see her after the babies are born." -being a close family supportive member has nothing to do with rather or not someone has medical training. This is about being their for her sister and planned.

  • Sayitreal

    U going JackieBrown ?

  • hottlanta

    Was she there when they were being conceived? If she loves me she loves me. I am quite sure Bey would understand if she had a concert. The concert was already planned. Her not being there when the kids come into the world will not make her less than a sister.

  • Mojo2

    I thought she wasn't due till late June or July??

  • OP2

    Never-mind I can see that some folks just do not understand the importance of a life-changing family event. -I guess that's on a whole new level for some. For others, it's a show of respect and closeness where their are unbreakable bonds between parents & siblings.

  • AcutallyReally

    I'm laughing that she has fans or gives concerts. To be fair, I haven't heard any of her recent music. So, maybe she's gotten better as an artist over the years.

  • NicoleZee

    I still believe in love surprisingly, but finding it online is not realistic I don't think. You meet a guy online and he pretty much wastes your time when all he wants to do is just sleep with you and he will tell you any lie to get the p***y. Sad. Why not just say I want sex and nothing else??? I've wanted just that in the past and I was honest about it. I don't get these dudes. People need to realize that we don't get to be here that long, so whatever you're looking for, be honest about it no matter what it is. Every woman doesn't want love, marriage, and family just like every man doesn't either. I think people need to reevaluate who they are and what they want and stop being bitch ass cowards. Whether you want dating, marriage, sex, monogamy, polyamory, etc., JUST BE HONEST!!!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Exactly

  • hotntot95

    All u can do is keep it moving..ur wasting your time if u think u can change him or fit in with his agenda...lol

  • hottlanta

    Never-mind I can see that some folks do understand the importance of a show of respect and closeness is to respect one's craft and give them your blessings because they need to do what they have to do and you know even though they are far away they are there/with for you. I don't need folks looking down my nostrils to prove they are there for me.

  • lilred1

    Hol up lol.. Now Solange has always made great music. She has plenty fans she just not mainstream. Btw her latest album.. ??

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    "Do your damn job!!!" I like that part the most. :)

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Not 20 people. LOL!!! Are you saying those 20 people could've drove her to the hospital? LOL!

  • leapyearpisces

    You right, Hot...This is true. I can't even argue. The only way to "win" against a Gemini is to cut your losses and walk away, and not look back. #dr.jeckyllmrhyde

  • OP2

    Solange is already a wealthy multi-millionaire with her own empire. Therefore, that mentality apply to your everyday struggle-birds who need to hustle for each & every gig for a buck or two and have a good excuse to not be at major life-change or family events.

  • hottlanta

    It is selfish for one to expect folks to drop what they are doing all the time to tend to them ALL the time. My friend had me rolling when she was telling me about folks (grandmothers) fighting at the hospital trying to be in the room with the mom. Hospitals cut a limit on who can be back there with the mom because too many folks get in the way and it is a distraction from them doing their job because it is always one family member acting as if they are not doing their job. They had one course at Everest and think they are an expert. The last thing I wanna is open my legs and everyone in my family is looking straight at my crotch.

  • OP2

    No one expect Solange to do anything. The woman insisted on being with her sister when that time came and was determined & committed to allowing this major family event be a major priority in her life.

    -wealthier people are afforded the opportunity & time to make other things or family events their current priority at a moment's notice. -those emotional fanatics (aka fans) will have to fall back & hold onto their tickets a little longer. lol

    By the way, a patient with class can be dignified & request cover. Recall Phakedra having a C-section on camera. Supporting visitors were not at her private area nor was she exposed. There is no need to be so unrefined & vulgar.

    Hospitals have limits "for the average person," but those people are shot-callers. Whereas, they can request a large room to accommodate approved people on the list.
    -therefore, exceptions will be made.

  • hottlanta

    Well if she is balling like that she can do a concert and if Bey has the baby get a private jet and have it on STANDBY. She is acting like she is on a regular 9-5 time with a MARTA bus pass trying to save their PTO hours like an AVERAGE person.

  • V Dubb

    Nope I'm good. Have 2 degrees and a career. Been there and have family there so please go away trying to start arguments on a blog. New England has been known for its mistreatment of blacks for the longest. Get a his tory lesson from your elders.

    Oh Solange get a life of your own. Mama Tina was in Houston over the weekend but yeah sure, Solange was there in the delivery room and she was not - Nope, not buying it.

  • V Dubb

    Argument doesn't have an extra e or an m in it either. Guess I should blame it on your phone as my phone separated the word history. Blessings!

  • JackieBrown

    Thank you, now I can sleep. ?

  • Lady_Elle

    Solange has a lot of fans. :-)

  • Faithz

    You are right about that, and I have to agree with you.

    The surrogate must have went into labor earlier than expected

  • Jussjess25

    Agreed

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    She had a number one album. On her terms. Solange is great & I do not follow her like that.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    #TRUTH
    I've been a fan of hers moreso than Beyonce the whole time. And I like that she's stayed true to herself and her craft.

  • interestingconcept1

    Just more of what Solange does; she gets overwhelmed and can't perform. Love her style and spirit and I have been trying so hard to like her last album, but I'm still not feeling it-all of that screaming! She needs to stop smoking weed.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Please.....keep it 100.

  • interestingconcept1

    Sounds like a scorpio..well, hell sounds like all men who don't want to commit.
