Only days before it was due in stores, Sony BMG has announced an indefinite delay for the planned late-February Blu-ray bow of 'The Beyonce Experience.'

As we first reported early last month, Sony BMG had planned to bring the "Irreplaceable" singer's first solo high-def release 'The Beyonce Experience - Live at Madison Square Garden' to Blu-ray on February 26 (the title had previously been released on standard DVD back in November).

The distributor now says that 'The Beyonce Experience' has been yanked from its schedule due to "last-minute production delays." Although they stopped short of issuing a new street date, a company spokesperson tells us that the release is now on track for a re-announce "sometime later this year."

At press time, there were no changes to the disc's previously announced specs, which were set to include 1080i video and uncompressed PCM 5.1 Surround audio. We'll keep you posted of any future updates or additions.

In light of the delay, we've moved 'The Beyonce Experience' to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. Stay tuned.
