Fans will have to wait a couple more weeks to see Rihanna live on her "Anti" tour.
Fresh off her canceled performance at The Grammy’s this past Monday, Rihanna unfortunately has some more bad news for her fans today. According to the Los Angeles Times, Ri Ri has postponed the start of her Anti world tour until next month.
Originally scheduled to kick off February 26 at San Diego’s Viejas Arena, the tour will now begin March 12 in Jacksonville, Florida instead. The first eight shows, which include San Jose, Phoenix, Houston, Dallas, Austin, New Orleans and Atlanta, have all been moved from February and March to May now.
The reason for the delay is “production delays” Rihanna’s camp cited. Look Travis Scott to open up for Rihanna throughout the North American leg, while The Weeknd & Big Sean are set to take over those duties in Europe.
Below is the new tour dates.
May 1: Phoenix, Ariz. - Talking Stick Resort Arena
May 6: San Jose, Calif. - SAP Center
May 9: San Diego, Calif. - Viejas Arena
May 13: Dallas, Texas - American Airlines Center
May 14: Austin, Texas - Frank Erwin Center
