Elle King Postpones Shows Amid Backlash Over Dolly Parton Tribute

Elle King has postponed four more upcoming shows amidst the backlash she received for a recent performance at the Grand Ole Opry in honor of Dolly Parton.

The singer announced the postponements via an Instagram Stories slide, providing makeup dates for all the concerts.

“Your tickets will be valid for the new dates. If you can’t make the new date, refunds are available at point of purchase. See you there!” King writes.

The Stories post noted that her show in Shipshewana, Indiana. is now slated for March 21, followed by a March 22 show in Waukegan, Illinois, and two shows on March 29-30 in Harris, Michigan. The shows were originally scheduled for February 22, February 25 and February 23-24, respectively.

This was her first announcement on social media after her tumultuous performance at the Opry Goes Dolly show on Friday, January 19.

During her time onstage during that event, King appeared visibly drunk, forgot the lyrics to Parton’s “Marry Me” and told the audience she was “f***ing hammered.”

The Opry issued an apology to fans offended by King’s language and behavior, but the singer has not yet commented on the incident.
