Rihanna Postpones 'Anti' Tour Dates Following GRAMMYs Cancellation
By Meredith B. Kile
Following her canceled performance at Monday’s GRAMMY Awards, Rihanna has postponed eight tour dates from her upcoming Anti tour, ET confirms.
The tour, in conjunction with the 27-year-old singer’s recently-released album of the same name, was scheduled to begin at the end of February, but will now kick off on March 12 in Jacksonville, Florida. The postponed dates, which have been rescheduled later in the tour, include stops in San Diego, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, Phoenix, New Orleans, Oakland and San Jose.
Production delays were to blame for the rescheduling. The news comes after the singer scrapped her planned performance at the GRAMMY Awards on Monday after being diagnosed with bronchitis less than an hour before the start of the awards show.
Rapper Travis Scott is scheduled to open for Rihanna on the North American dates of the Anti tour, while Big Sean and The Weeknd will join for the European dates to follow.
