The show was booted because of the NBA Finals schedule and the NBA’s requirements for the Scotiabank Arena, according to a Live Nation Ontario tweet.

The Toronto show was supposed to kick off Winfrey’s Canadian summer tour ‘Your Path Made Clear,’ which would see her sharing personal stories and life lessons. The tour would also promote Winfrey’s new book, The Path Made Clear.

Game 6 of the NBA Finals, where the Toronto Raptors will play against the Golden State Warriors, will take place in California on Thursday.
