Yet more US cities will be spared two hours of cat howling courtesy of Rihanna, following the news that yet more Stateside dates on her ‘Last Girl On Earth Tour’ have been scrapped.
More after the jump…
In what is no doubt becoming a rather embarrassing episode for Runway RiRi, her tour promoters Live Nation announced today that 3 major city dates have been cancelled due to ‘scheduling conflicts’ (of course):
Due to a change in Rihanna’s schedule, she can no longer appear in Englewood (July 15),Atlanta (July 28) and Noblesville (August 3). Fans who purchased tickets will receive a refund. Rihanna apologizes to her fans and hopes to make it up to them on the next tour.
With ‘scheduling conflicts’ also cited for previously cancelled dates on the North American leg of the tour, it’s as clear as day that this is a poor, yet necessary PR spin job. After all, it’s doubtful the ‘truth’ (that Ms. Fenty’s tour tickets are simply not selling) would look good for anyone.
Interesting to note is the fact that we never hear of ol’ RiRi’s chart contemporaries (such as Beyonce or Lady GaGa) cancelling date after date due to ‘scheduling conflicts’. If anything, they stay ADDING more. Food for thought, no?
UPDATE: Yet another date has been cancelled. This time it’s Denver.
