Megan Thee Stallion says the city of Houston needs time to heal. That’s why she’s cancelled her performance in the city. The show was scheduled for 713 Music Hall on December 3.

Megan‘s announcement was made to the Houston Chronicle. She issued a statement about the reason for the cancellation. She says it’s all about respect.

“Out of respect for the lives lost in Houston earlier this month, I have decided to cancel my show at 713 Music Hall on Dec 3. Houston is still healing and it’s important that our community be given the appropriate time to grieve. My heart goes out to all the families that are suffering during this difficult time.”

A crowd stampede at the Astroworld festival resulted in hundreds of injuries and ten deaths. A firestorm of lawsuits followed, with most naming Travis Scott as a responsible party. For now, Megan didn’t think a concert was appropriate for the city.


Megan Thee Stallion was recently nominated for a Grammy for “Thot Sh*t.” Last year, she won three of the coveted awards. She also recently graduated from Texas Southern University.

A return date to Houson has not been scheduled. For now, it appears Megan’s fans in Houston will have to wait for her next tour. She believes there are much bigger things to deal with than a concert.
