Turkey Grieves, Beyonce Knowles Canceled Gig


Beyonce Knowles


In toleration to the 12 soldiers killed during a rebel attack in Turkey, Instanbul, Beyonce Knowles cancels her scheduled concert in the country.

Beyonce Knowles has been forced to cancel her concert in Turkey, Istanbul due to a rebel attack in the country that resulted in 12 deaths. Turkey's Sukru Saracoglu Arena was supposed to be Beyonce's latest stop in the Middle-East region before beginning the Asia leg.

Fenerbahce, the soccer club representing the concert in line with their 100th anniversary, felt that it's inappropriate to conduct the performance while the nation was grieving. As many as 12 soldiers were killed in a Kurdish rebel attack on Sunday (October 21).

"We decided today that these festivities could not be held in the present atmosphere," Fenerbahce vice-president Ali Koc said in a post of the club's website. "We share our nation's grief. We are canceling our 100th anniversary concert."

Tickets that have been purchased will be reimbursed, the club announced.
