Christine and the Queens were forced to drop off the bill for the second weekend of the Coachella Festival due to the death of the singer's mother. In a translation of a tweet from vocalist Héloïse Letissier on Thursday (April 18) she revealed, "I can only write very simple sentences. I lost my mother on Tuesday night. I came home to go through this ordeal with my loved ones — I won’t be able to sing this Saturday. I kiss you.”

The band was slated to perform on Saturday (April 20) following their glitzy set at the California desert festival's first weekend; their show with Blood Orange at the Santa Barbara Bowl slated for Thursday night was also canceled.
