Beyonce postpones Nashville concert; Atlanta show will go on as planned

Beyonce has postponed her Nashville concert on May 5, but the stadium spectacle is still on track for Sunday at the Georgia Dome.

No reason was given for the abrupt delay, but Nashville fans were told to retain their tickets for a new date.

The singer kicked off her tour Wednesday in Miami with a two-hour show that leaned heavily on her just-released "Lemonade" album. All of the other upcoming dates on the "Formation" tour are scheduled to go on as planned.

Those attending Sunday's sold-out Atlanta show -- the Nashville date was one of the few non-sell-outs on the tour -- are advised to check out these tips (such as the guidelines for purses) before heading downtown this weekend. (FYI, six song titles are mentioned in the story.)
