Rihanna Postpones Big World Tour!

Navy hold on to your seats! Our girl RiRi has postponed several dates for her Anti World Tour. The announcement comes a few days after the singer cancelled her Grammy performance due to bronchitis. As Billboard reports, eight dates from her North American leg of the tour have been moved. The tour dates have tweaked and affected regions such as: San Diego, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, Phoenix, New Orleans, and Oakland. Another date in San Jose was already scheduled to be pushed back due to production delays. Originally the tour was supposed to begin on February 26th in San Diego but will now kick off on March 12th in Jacksonville, FL, and the rescheduled dates will take place in May. Rihanna is scheduled to embark on the European leg of her tour on June 11th. This Bajan songstress will be touring to support her eighth album, Anti, which she debuted as a stream and download via Tidal last month. Travis Scott will serve as opener for the North American leg of the tour. The Anti World Tour dates that are rescheduled are below:
