Megan Thee Stallion canceled a show in Houston this week “out of respect” for the victims of the June 22 explosion at the city’s old Astroworld amusement park.
“After learning the news about the horrific explosion at Astroworld, I feel it is important to continue my music journey and won’t be able to make this show,” Megan Thee Stallion wrote on Instagram. “It is never easy to consider canceling a show but due to the harm and loss caused by the accident in Texas this week, I feel it is in my best interest. The concert will not be rescheduled. I wish I could be there for everyone in my life and wish the most of those affected by this terrible tragedy.”
No fatalities have been confirmed, but 36 people were treated for injuries, with four people — including two young girls — in the hospital and still in the process of recovering.
In a statement, Megan Thee Stallion continued that she is “a woman of conviction and integrity, and believe that words of encouragement and gratitude for strength among survivors and those still recovering from this are necessary to inspire them and our nations’ youth.”
