Rihanna Forced To Scrap Second Show Of World Tour After A Rocking Start In Buffalo
March 10th, 2013 2:28pm EDT
Pop superstar Rihanna rocked Buffalo, New York, Saturday night to kick off her Diamonds World Tour, but she was forced to postpone her second show, in Boston, Mass., on Sunday night.
The singer took the stage an hour late in Buffalo, starting her show at 10 p.m., but made up for it by rocking the crowd with a set packed with her biggest hits.
She performed tracks including "Rude Boy," "We Found Love," "Umbrella," "Only Girl (In the World)" and "Don't Stop The Music," during her set; capping off the show with lots of gratitude for fans attending the gig.
"You guys are all rock stars. There is only one first show, you all have a special place in my heart," she told the crowd.
Rihanna posted a few images to her Instagram page afterwards: one a close-up shot of her on stage and two others showing the packed house at the First Niagra Center. But the two shots of the sold out arena were captioned as though she was more appreciative of the money she made than the enthusiasm of her fans as she replaced a few of her s's with dollar signs.
"No words, just DIAMONDS!!! #EPICsh*t #BUFFALO $old out!!!" she wrote in one caption; while the other said, "Look wuh ya girl do!!! All I see iz $ign$."
"Buffalo I will never forget how you made me feel tonight!!!" she added on Twitter. "Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! 1 (one) love always. Diamonds World Tour we (are) just getting started!!!"
Unfortunately for Rihanna, she won't be seeing any dollar signs on Sunday night -- her show at Boston's TD garden has been postponed because of a bout with laryngitis.
"The Rihanna Diamonds World Tour previously scheduled for this evening in Boston has been postponed," reads a message on the venue's website. "Unfortunately, following her sold out concert on Friday Rihanna has contracted laryngitis and per doctor's instruction is unable to perform this evening.
"Boston fans are instructed to retain their tickets pending rescheduling show date information."
The singer took to her twitter to post her thoughts.
"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" 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"
Her next chance to ca$h in in Tuesday night in Baltimore, Maryland.
Earlier in the week Ryan Seacrest announced on his radio show that Rihanna is planning a year-long break from music after her tour wraps up in Helsinki, Finland, in July.
"[Rihanna's] been in this go mode for a while," Seacrest said. "Seven hit records in seven years. Sold-out tours, but sources say after this tour wraps, she plans to take up to a year off to unwind."
Wednesday the singer posted a hot shot of her derriere in a thong on Instagram. "Gotcha b*tch tip toeing on my marble flo'!!! Sick *ss custom Prada boots! Miuccia you RULE!!! Thank you," she wrote.
