Rihanna Postpones Several 'Anti' World Tour Dates

Rihanna Postpones Several 'Anti' World Tour Dates

After an abrupt departure prior to her Grammy performance Monday night, Rihanna has more bad news for her fans. According to Billboard, her Anti World Tour has been postponed for several dates. The tour was originally slated to begin Feb. 26 in San Diego, California. 

In a news statement, the early tour dates were postponed because of "production delays," which has led to the reshuffling of those dates, the San Jose Mercury News reported. San Jose, one of Rihanna's early stops, was initially supposed to take place on Feb. 28, but has been changed to May 6.

Several other locations were affected by the schedule change: Phoenix; Dallas; Austin, Texas; Houston; New Orleans; and Atlanta, according to KNSD. In the absence of other delays, the tour will launch March 12 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Rihanna's fans expressed their disappointment online.

Fans will still be able to attend the tour, just on a different date. Rihanna will be joined by rapper Travis Scott for the North American tour dates, while Detroit native Big Sean and OVO's the Weeknd will be on tour for the European stops, Billboard reports.
