Rihanna cancels two UK shows

By | Published on Monday 22 February 2016


Having last week postponed the start of her US tour, Rihanna has now cancelled two shows on the UK leg of her world trek, due to “logistical difficulties”.

Performances at Sunderland’s Stadium Of Light on 16 Jun and Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on 18 Jun will now not take place. And a show at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry has been moved from 14 Jun to 25 Jun.

In a statement, Sunderland AFC Commercial Director Gary Hutchinson said: “Unfortunately this is something that can happen with major tours and naturally we are sorry for those concert-goers who were looking forward to the show. We still have an exciting summer of events planned at the Stadium Of Light however, including the sell
out Beyonce concert, which everyone is looking forward to”.

Oh, burn. Refunds are available at the point of purchase. Cardiff’s Principality Stadium has also offered to swap tickets for Rihanna shows in other cities, where possible.
