Rihanna cancels gig due to laryngitis


Rihanna started her Diamonds World Tour on Friday and has already had to cancel her second gig due to laryngitis.

The world tour kicked off in Buffalo, New York and she was due to play Boston today. This morning, Live Nation announced the cancellation in a statement.

They wrote “Unfortunately, following her sold out concert on Friday, Rihanna has contracted laryngitis and per doctor’s instruction is unable to perform this evening.”


Rihanna also tweeted her sadness about disappointing fans.

She wrote: “#BOSTON this is the hardest thing for me to deal with! I feel like we’ve been waiting on this day forever, and I’m hurt that I let you down. I hate disappointing people that never ever let me down!! I’m so embarrassed about this! Thank you for your prayers and well wishes! #DWT.”

The date will be rescheduled. It is unclear if Rihanna will be well enough to perform at her next date in Baltimore, Maryland on Tuesday.

I do find this a bit odd. Obviously, she is ill and she won’t be able to sing properly but surely, she had signs of throat problems before the tour even started?! To have this sort of problem at the very beginning of a tour seems very strange.
