Rihanna Postpones ANTI Tour, Including Phoenix Concert Date
What's up with RiRi?
TMZ reported Rihanna had an outburst backstage at the Grammy Awards before she canceled her scheduled appearance. Her people say that she had bronchitis and wouldn't have been able to perform, but the gossip website reported "the singer was loudly expressing displeasure over her rehearsal . . . loud and upset."
Now comes news today that the singer will postpone her tour for her new album, ANTI, which came out on the streaming music service Tidal a few weeks ago.
Several early dates on the tour have been rescheduled. The Phoenix date, originally scheduled for Tuesday, March 1, has moved to Sunday, May 1.
This isn't catastrophic news yet, but the singer will have to understand if her Valley of the Sun fans are getting antsy: She hasn't performed publicly in Phoenix since 2008. (She did perform at a private party in Glendale during Super Bowl weekend in 2015.)
Tickets for the original date will be honored at the May 1 concert.
