If you were looking forward to seeing The Weeknd open up for Rihanna on her ANTI World Tour, you’re out of luck. The R&B crooner has pulled out of performing with the Pop princess. Find out why inside…
We didn’t see this coming.
Looks like The Weeknd will NOT be joining Rihanna on the European leg of her ANTI World Tour as originally scheduled.
Live Nation made the announcement via email, stating the Canadian singer will no longer be hitting the road due to scheduling conflicts. The “Earned It” singer was suppose to hit the stage for 24 shows overseas, kicking off in Amsterdam on June 17th.
The email reads:
"Due to some unforeseen changes with upcoming projects, the Weeknd will no longer be joining Rihanna on her upcoming international Anti World Tour.”
This is just the latest drama added to the ANTI World Tour. You’ll recall, Rih Rih postponed the tour, pushing it back two weeks due to production issues.
In spite of the issues, the “BBHMM” singer has been selling out shows since kicking off the tour earlier this month. Tonight, Rih is set to rock the stage at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York and she also heads to Manhattan this weekend.
