Carrie Underwood’s Toronto Concert Postponed Due to 2019 NBA Finals
The NBA's Toronto Raptors are preparing for their first-ever trip to the NBA Finals -- but their deep playoffs run means Carrie Underwood fans in the Ontario, Canada, city will have to wait a bit longer to see the country star live. The Raptors Finals schedule has caused Underwood to postpone her Cry Pretty Tour 360 stop in Toronto.
According to a tweet from Scotiabank Arena, home of the Toronto Raptors and the venue at which Underwood's concert was scheduled, her June 9 Cry Pretty Tour 360 show has been postponed to a to-be-announced later date "[d]ue to the Raptors advancing to the NBA Finals & the technical set up requirements of the league." All tickets sold for the original show date will be honored for the rescheduled show, when it's announced.
The Toronto Raptors are playing the Golden State Warriors in the 2019 NBA Finals, a best-of-seven series. Toronto has home advantage, meaning they'll host Game 1 and Game 2 on May 30 and June 2, respectively, before the series moves to Oakland, Calif., for Game 3 and Game 4. Should more than four games be needed, the teams will travel back to Toronto for Game 5 on June 10, then back to Oakland for Game 6 on June 13, then to Toronto once more for Game 7 on June 16.
Underwood's tour stop isn't the only show that's being postponed or canceled due to the Toronto Raptors playoffs run. Alt-rock band's Twenty One Pilots' Bandito Tour stop on Wednesday (May 29) has been canceled, while a June 15 performance by Italian artist Eros Ramazzotti has also been postponed.
Underwood began her Cry Pretty Tour 360 in early May. Maddie & Tae and Runaway June are her special guests for the trek, which is currently scheduled to run through late October.
