The Toronto Raptors scored a spot in the NFL Finals for the first time in the franchise’s history, but their win is affecting a few artists who were scheduled to perform at the arena.
Earlier this week, Twenty One Pilots had to cancel their second show at the Scotiabank Arena tonight in order to allow the league enough time to set up for the game on Thursday. Now, Carrie Underwood has to postpone her show on June 9 at the arena for the same reason.
“Due to the Raptors advancing to the NBA Finals & the technical set up requirements of the league, the Carrie Underwood concert on June 9, 2019 will be rescheduled to a later date still to be announced,” the Scotiabank Arena said in a statement. “All tickets for the June 9 concert will be valid for the newly announced date.”

The “Before He Cheats” singer was set to appear at the arena on her massive Cry Pretty Tour 360, which is set to run through late October with tour openers Maddie & Tae and Runaway June. Cry Pretty, her sixth studio album, dropped last fall and features singles “Love Wins” and “Southbound.” She is slated to perform next in Edmonton, followed by shows in Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and Ottawa before crossing back into the states in June and September.
The Raptors will face the Golden State Warriors tomorrow, May 30, and if the Finals go into a fifth game, the teams will play-off at the Scotiabank Arena on June 10.
