Why would Rihanna’s “Anti” Tour be delayed by two weeks?
According to People, Rihanna has postponed her kick off date due to production delays. She was supposed to start her tour in San Diego next week.
Hollywood Life, meanwhile, reported that “some of the [tour] venues were already aware this was going down” even before the postponement was confirmed.
“Live Nation or Ticketmaster…gave my boss the heads up that Rihanna may reschedule her performance…We’re still selling tickets for the show but nothing is official. It kinda sucks,” a box office representative from the singer’s supposed first stop told Hollywood Life.
Rihanna is set to start her tour in North America with Travi$ Scott, People reported. She will then travel to Europe in June with Big Sean and The Weeknd.
