Erykah Badu's Ryman Date Canceled [Updated]

Posted By on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 8:07 AM

Word has come down the series of tubes that public nudity law-defying R&B icon Erykah Badu’s upcoming show with Janelle Monae at The Ryman has officially been canceled due to a “scheduling conflict.” It looks like Badu’s original "Out My Mind, Just in Time” tour schedule got blown to hell earlier this month, and now the Jun. 6 Nashville date lands her at the start of her Northeast tour leg. Which means, it ain’t happening.

According to The Ryman, there is no rescheduled date at this time. Bummer. On the bright side, robo-soul sister Janelle Monáe is going to be at Lilith Fair on Aug. 7 at Bridgestone Arena. If Monae’s killer new afrofuturistic record, The ArchAndroid, isn’t reason enough to brave the revamped estrogen parade, I don’t know what is. UPDATE: Monae is no longer on the Nashville Lilith show.

There’s no word on refunds for anyone who already bought tickets to the Ryman gig, but presumably they’ll be offering refunds at the box office.
