There’s bad news for fans hoping to see Rita Ora in St. Petersburg as the singer has canceled her June 22 concert at St. Pete Pride. Organizers said they were notified on June 8.

“Rita has cancelled all upcoming events for the next several weeks due to unforeseen circumstances” Luke Blankenship, Executive Director of St Pete Pride, said in a release. He added St Pete Pride and its partners are actively working to schedule an alternative act for Saturday evening’s Post-Parade performance.

Lisa Loeb is still set to appear at St. Pete Pride during her June 21 concert at Straub Park.

Ora’s June 21 date at Iceland’s Secret Solstice Festival is still on her website, and European dates for July are still on her itinerary, too.

The St. Pete Pride concerts are free-to-attend, and more information is available via stpetepride.com.

Ora also mentioned Stonewall in her Twitter feed last week, but this St. Petersburg cancelation is not the kind of out we like.
