Rihanna had to cancel her Sunday night show in Boston, the second show of her Diamonds tour, due to laryngitis, reported Live Nation Sunday morning.
The statement from Live Nation read:
“Unfortunately, following her sold out concert on Friday Rihanna has contracted laryngitis and per doctor’s instruction is unable to perform this evening.”
The Boston show was only the second date of her Diamonds world tour, which kicked off on Friday night in Buffalo, NY. Reports from a Buffalo News pop critic said that her first show “went off without a hitch,” despite her showing up on stage an hour late.
Rihanna’s tour is expected to resume on Tuesday in Baltimore and the Boston show is reportedly being rescheduled.
The tour will continue, hitting 25 cities, before it ends on May 4 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Rihanna has not commented on her Boston cancellation.
We hope RiRi gets better!
