Rihanna has postponed her upcoming Anti world tour that was scheduled to kick off this month. Initially, her first show was scheduled for February 26th in San Diego. The tour will now kick off in Jacksonville on March 12th.
Her reps tell Us Weekly that the tour was postponed due to ‘production delays’. Her first eight stops in San Jose, Phoenix, Texas, New Orleans and Atlanta, have all been moved until March and May.
As previously reported, Rihanna cancelled her appearance and performance at the GRAMMYs. Prior to pulling out, her camp released a statement:
Based on Rihanna’s examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna’s doctor put her on vocal rest for 48 hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords. The antibiotics she has been on for three days did not kill the infection adequately, therefore she cannot perform safely.
