Rihanna cancels Boston concert due to laryngitis, 'Diamonds World Tour' will continue

By Markirah Shaw,

Only two days after kicking off her Diamonds World Tour, Rihanna is suffering from laryngitis and has to cancelled last night's show at TD Garden in Boston on doctor’s orders.

Rihanna was clearly upset about having to cancel her next show, saying on Twitter: “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."

According to E! Online, Live Nation - the company that is producing Rihanna’s concerts – had this to say about the cancellation: “Boston fans are instructed to retain their tickets pending rescheduling show date information.”

Hollywood Life raved about Rihanna's tour-opening show in Buffalo on Friday, calling it an uber-sexy “spectacle to the max” with many costume changes and hit songs. Rihanna posted a picture of the sold-out crowd to her Instagram and captioned it “No words, just DIAMONDS!!! #EPICsh*t #BUFFALO $old out!!!”

'Diamonds World Tour' is supposed to visit 27 cities in the US and Canada and end back in New York at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on May 5. US Weekly reports that the tour will get back on track as planned with the next show in Baltimore, March 12.

There is no word yet on the Boston concert reschedule date.
