Rihanna Postpones ANTI Tour Dates
Days after Rihanna pulled out of her Grammys performance due to a bout with bronchitis, the Pop icon has pushed back her highly anticipated ANTI tour citing “production delays.”
Here’s the scoop via Billboard:
Eight dates have been rescheduled on Rihanna’s tour, including stops in San Diego, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, Phoenix, New Orleans and Oakland and San Jose, Calif. A source in San Jose tells Billboard that the second show on the tour — set for Feb. 28 at the SAP Center and moved to May 8 — was having production problems and the show wouldn’t be ready in time, which has been known for a couple of weeks. The show was headed for a sellout.
Rihanna’s rep confirmed to Billboard that “production delays” were behind the postponement.
The ANTI tour will now kick off on March 12 with Travis Scott accompanying Rihanna on her North American dates. Big Sean and The Weeknd will rock with RiRi on her European dates.
