Chaos: Rihanna Postpones ‘ANTI Tour’

Published: Thursday 18th Feb 2016 by Sam

Chaos and calamity have encased Rihanna‘s ‘ANTI’ campaign and this evening the project dived to new lows. Because, as predicted, the ‘ANTI World Tour’ has been postponed.

Full story below…

Per Ticketmaster and Billboard, the first set shows on the trek (which was due to kick off next week) have been postponed until May.

San Diego’s Viejas Arena show has moved from February 26th to May 9th. The San Jose concert at the SAP Center shifts from February 28th to May 8th. The March 4th Austin, Texas date will instead play May 14th. Several other dates have been rescheduled too.

The tour will now launch March 12th in Jackson Florida — that’s if no further postponements take place.


One need not be Einstein to deduce that something is oh so off about Fenty’s movements of late. The botched album launch, the catastrophe of a cover up, the Grammy cancellation, and now…this.

What’s more, “production delays” being cited as the reason will only raise more eyebrows, following reports of slower than anticipated ticket sales.

Color us Miss Cleo, because did we not say this was a strong likelihood after that Grammy stunt situation?

The sad reality is that regardless of what the true cause is, it cannot distract from the fact that this is a hot unmitigated mess.

    The navy can never talk s*** on ARTPOP anymore

    • maurice February 18, 2016

      I feel for her though. Going from being that bish to receiving the Ciara treatment slowly but surely.
      Beyonce gone be the only one ruling the RnB game after all. Almost two decades strong.

      • Navy February 19, 2016

        Shut the f@$& up! You have to be dumb to think that every move Rih makes has to do with Byce. You people make me sick. Nothing to do but cry eeople down all day.

        artpop 4th album
        Anti 8th album

        the shade with artpop is that she was the biggest popstar in the world and then dropped off fast when Artpop was released

  4. RihYonce February 18, 2016

    Lmao I’m so done ! First she takes forever to release anti , the funny stuff with the “platinum “plague, cancels Grammy performance & now she’s postponing the tour ? This has to be her most terrible era yet! This album is too good to just drag promotion through the mud & she’s taking forever to release the “work” video which is overdue at this point , get it together riri

    • MR. ENTERTAINMENT February 18, 2016

      I just said all thi. lol. its really sad with Rih

    • FAF February 18, 2016

      It doesn’t matter at this point the album will never sale platinum she couldn’t just do it with class and dignity she had to buy a plaque at least NICKIS almost there 900k and 600k respectively

      Rihanna has SOLD less than 200k if we aren’t counting streams

      • jamila February 19, 2016

        nicki’s achievment isn’t even close to rhino’s so shut your trap and get it together! graceless h**! is a certified flop! she has only 1 platinum album in the US h** so fix them fingers when typing trash! bye BIH

  5. MR. ENTERTAINMENT February 18, 2016

    I can’t. Why!???!? Hot MESS RIRI! Damn. WTF is really going on. You looking really helpless. 2 yr delayed album, singles released that are not on the album, buying your RIAA certified platinum plaque for ANTI. Canceling performances, Now delayed Tour. Your track record is looking terrible.

    • RihYonce February 18, 2016

      Crazy how we said the same thing & posted nearly at the same time lmao

      • MR. ENTERTAINMENT February 18, 2016

        Lol. exactly. lol. Her track record is looking sloppy

  6. Maxamillian February 18, 2016

    I knew this was going to happen. WTF is going on?? I hope she is okay…like for real. I see a Roc Nation departure coming soon.

  7. Erica February 18, 2016

    I’m not surprised. Have you seen those US dates? TRAGIC!!!!! And Europe doesn’t seem to be doing much better either. This woman about to be in some serious debt just like Kanye.

  8. #JACKIE February 18, 2016

    Where’s the navy with their excuses?

    • Applause February 18, 2016

      Didn’t your fav just get dropped?

      • #JACKIE February 18, 2016

        ArtFlop platinum yet sis?

      • Cinnamon Girl February 18, 2016

        Hey, Navy! I feel bad for you guys! Rihanna is clearly playing you. You can always come to the C squad or the Beehive. Lol

  9. ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 18, 2016

    Words can’t even f****** describe how pissed I am right now. I’m so disappointed! I don’t wanna hear s*** from anyone who’s not #Navy right now. We should be uplifting this black woman AND Bey, but instead were tearing them down and putting them against each other. I’m so done with this mess.

    • BeyBarbFenty February 19, 2016

      it just doesn’t compute with these morons

  10. Metzo February 18, 2016

    Degrading from a 74k stadium to a 17k arena. Good luck booking that stage you speak of Frih.

    • #JACKIE February 18, 2016

      Kiiii I love it! Karma is a bee-otch! Hehehe.

      • I’m Booked February 19, 2016

        But How Can It Be Karma When Ciara Is Still A C-List Flop??

    • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 18, 2016

      Wait. For which show? Don’t play with my heart like that please!

  11. Avi February 18, 2016

    I almost don’t wanna laugh.

    • Avi February 18, 2016

      ..,but everybody knows “almost doesn’t count.” 😆

  12. Adrihanna February 18, 2016

    Well that sucks! Oh well, now I can have a little more time to learn ANTI front to back.

  13. ?Queen Molly? February 18, 2016

    Set back after set back girl get it together ?

    • rosy February 18, 2016

      Poor ciara getting drop I’m not worried all artist do push back so please rih is fine what rih needs to do is cancel that investment with tidal keep it moving and sign somewhere else this would never happen with a big record company it looks like tidal is messing with everyone it’s not a good run organise company who let’s their biggest star album for free s*** happens she will be fine you all always f****** think when s*** happens the world coming to an end

      • ?Queen Molly? February 18, 2016

        Oh girl take this L gracefully and stfu.

  14. Surprise..(DEC 2013) February 18, 2016


  15. ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 18, 2016

    You know what? I don’t even care anymore to be f****** honest! Bey needs to help her out by taking on some responsibility to promote the tour, whether it’s tweeting about it or doing little interviews and squeezing it in somehow. Bey is her mentor, her black big pop sis, the person who TOLD JAY THAT SHE WAS A STAR over Teairra Mari! It’s their jobs to uplift and support each other through Hell and back because they’re the ONLY two black ones running s*** right now….and the white ones are too busy trying to take them down instead of lending a helping hand or giving a f*** to even care. I’m tired of them being just cordial with each other! Bey, help your little pop sis out for us please! Promote the tour while yours is still doing well! You’re the only black woman she has to lean on and depend on for support!

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

      1.) Beyonce does not tweet
      2.)Umm Beyonce is not rihannas marketing manager. It’s not her job to promote rihannas career.
      3.) Beyonce knows how to market herself. Maybe rihanna should start doing the same.

    • I’m Booked February 19, 2016

      If It Was The Other Way Around You Would Be Hurling Insults & Kiki-ing , Don’t Try Too Sing Kumbaya Now That Rihanna Is Sinking With Her Ship!

  16. UPGRADEBOY February 18, 2016

    I think rih is ready to go back ans stay in barbados foreva lmao thé struggle ,hey Navy how you doin?

  17. Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

    How does it feel down there on your knees? The formation tour got you shook huh?

  18. Knowles Carter February 18, 2016

    Wow! She’s crumbling right before our eyes. Sad because Anti is a pretty good album. I love S** With Me.

  19. Kitteneyez February 18, 2016

    Awwww Riri this is sad why babe? Good part bout this disappointing news is the real Navy get to learn the lyrics to Anti to sing along with u wish u all the best

  20. Juicfat February 18, 2016

    Rihanna failing her fans giving them disappointment after disappointment, they mad and still worried about ciara lol. Don’t take it out on co cici cause Rihanna playing yall, go blame rih

  21. Datredd23 February 18, 2016

    Feeling very sad for my queen the album is wonderful but something else deep is going on I know the haters are very glad and are wishing your demise I hope you have a great birthday at least queen !

    • I’m Booked February 19, 2016

      Ain’t Nothing “Deep” Going On, Face It… Rihanna Is Just Lazy & Doesn’t Take Her Career Seriously, Hence Not Taking Care Of Her Body & Her Voice….& Shitting On Her Fans… Wake Up!

  22. HELLO LUCYYYYYYYYYYY February 18, 2016

    LMAOOOOOOO..She waited to long to release, and she does nothing but drugs & party/vacation every other week. She needs to get into modeling..Her vocals are tragic,her walls are demolished from the different dudes/females she keep letting get in there, she cheated her way to in with Anti, and she is just an overall coke w**** get your s*** together RIH-ANNA.

    • ~The Arcade~ February 19, 2016

      Agreed. I think she’d rather be a socialite than be a musician, because a true musician; 10 years into the game would have mastered their craft.

      And LOL @ “her walls are demolished…” ??

  23. #TeamTinashe Stan February 18, 2016

    I’ll never understand why people rejoice when someoneone fails. SMH! No constructive criticisms just PURE seething that goes on here everyday.

    This era was a mess no lie but I applaud her for doing something different and not following the same format as her previous releases. Just like Kanye, Rihanna are both trying to help a friend out with their struggling streaming service so 75% of the blame goes to Jay Z.

    • BABE LUV February 18, 2016

      Well..You are stabbing for Tina she I’m sure you are very comfortable when it comes to lifting someone up when they fail.

    • BABE LUV February 18, 2016

      Stop blaming s*** on JAY Z..Rihanna is in control of every last minute move she makes..she is a tragic excuse of an artist..Tanishe butter is also a sad excuse of an one is checking for her.

      • ?Queen Molly? February 18, 2016

        Absolutely no one is checking for ha!

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

      You stay shading Ciara ! Sit your hypocritical ads down somewhere

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016


      • #TeamTinashe Stan(#JOYRIDE…..Coming Soon) February 18, 2016

        Constructive criticism is only called “Shading” to you because for someone who is consistently on every Rihanna post(FACTS) repeating feeble shade would take it as that.
        Fall off of my reply section now. Atleast you tried 😀

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

        Have a seat, and try to create Tanisha some relevancy.

        “Nothing that you say has any merit or deed”…….. my comment doesn’t have any value but yet it made FOUR dedicated comments for me… No wonder you got dragged by Molly(the king of getting dragged himself) the other day. LOL hehe! ??

    The navy bash Ciara left from right..but at least Ciara is devoted & actually KILLS s*** when she is on tour..Rihanna is a sad excuse of an artist.

  25. Rosie February 18, 2016

    I can’t at this era omg. “Black Madonna!!!!” Madonna would never

  26. Humble Hive February 18, 2016

    Nothing is going right this era smh and I blame it on Tidal. It’s obvious that something is going on behind the scenes. Her and Kanye are both very unhappy. Beyonce will probably get a better end of the deal because Jay Z is her husband but her album will probably see the same fate as Rihanna’s (exclusive Tidal release). It will sell way more when released to iTunes though. Anti is actually a great album and I would be pissed if my work was mishandled also. Sorry Rih!

  28. !!! February 18, 2016


    I know someone who works within the industry and is a promoter for the BRIT awards and he also works for Sony’s UK branch and even he has told me that the majority of the stars who are due to perform this year have already started rehearsals but Rihanna hasn’t. He, personally, thinks she is going to cancel. He also says that it is going around that Beyonce and Rihanna had a HUGE falling out just before xmas (reason unknown) and that even Jay-Z hasn’t spoken to her since the new year.


    He also told me that Rihanna and Jay had a huge argument also at a tidal briefing sometime early this month – he was in Los Angeles – and that security had to be called to escorts Rihanna off the premises.


    He says the reason that Rihanna cancelled her Grammy performance was NOT due to bronchitis but because Beyonce was there. Apparently, they arent supposed to be around each other and that Rihanna left because she knew that if she saw her, a fight would ensue. She was throwing a huge fuss at the Grammy rehearsals the night prior but that’s because beys camp had been feeding back to rihs camp things that were being said about her.


    He said Rihanna is furious about bey playing the same venues as her within the same time frame – Rihanna had originally planned to play Wembley in the UK as well as Cardiff and Sunderland but when bey maliciously decided to play the same venues, she was pissed.


    Also, he says that bey plans to release her album as a surprise again the same week her tour starts…


    Also, Rihanna is apparently hiding an illness – she’s been going to sinai medical centre in Los Angeles several times in the last month alone.

    Hit up Mark Taylor-Williams ON Facebook and get the tea – his page is open!!!

    • #JACKIE February 18, 2016

      I believe every word! End ha Bey! Kii.

    • HailBeysus February 18, 2016

      Bawhahahahaha guess h***** aint her only problem. She got the H-I-V too!!!! No wonder she so thin looking like a walking skeletor!!! That’s what happens when you hoeeee!!

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

      Sounds about right to me! Lol

  29. !!! February 18, 2016

    Also, have you realised that Kanye is never seen with Jay Z anymore…???

    Apparently, he had a falling out over issues with tidal too.

    Both he ad Rihanna are pissed – something is definitely going down!

    • #JACKIE February 18, 2016

      Well they shoulda thought about that before they signed the contract! Kii

    • Hmmm… February 18, 2016

      Jay was just at Kanye’s fashion show and Kanye has still been promoting tidal. I believe he also said that he’s never sending TLOP to iTunes, only tidal. Kanye has issues but it doesn’t seem to be with tidal. Maybe it’s just Rih with the problem. I would believe that. But either way, she would be the dumb one for not being able to judge for herself, what’s best for her career.

  30. Jamie February 18, 2016

    Won’t nobody going no way.

  31. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare February 18, 2016

    The catastrophizing is real. LOL!

    Only 8 dates have been rescheduled. I bought my Janet tickets in JUNE of last year. One of my shows has been postponed once (Tulsa) and the other one has been postponed TWICE (Kansas City). & I’m still awaiting the legend and icon.

    PLEAAASSSEEE, Rihanna is perfectly fine.

  32. Sherrele February 18, 2016

    Beyonce don’t have anything to do with Rihanna mishaps of an era and seems to me Rihanna should have been had her album out when she released the two songs, now that it’s Beyonce era to put out her album for this year. I just don’t see how rihanna fans could blame Beyonce for Rihanna messy era. Come on now, Rihanna should have been put her album out. Can’t blame nobody else but herself. I did read that she is now in control of her music. I don’t know why others expect for Beyonce to promote Rihanna. Ask yourself would Rihanna promote any other artist

  33. JanStan February 18, 2016

    I’m confused. What ‘production’ is causing delays? Does standing in front of a video screen making sounds with your mouth take THAT much time?

  34. Cinnamon Girl February 18, 2016

    I gotta hand it to Ciara and Teyana Taylor. Rihanna uses to poke fun at them. Now that her a## is going down Ciara and Teyana could be going IN on her but they’re not. They’re keeping it classy. As far as Rihanna, Payback’s a b****, isn’t it?

  35. orangeyougladIdidntsaybanana February 18, 2016

  37. Rosie February 18, 2016

    wait I just saw the Berlin stadium date got moved to an indoor arena. Weren’t the navi claiming stadiums “weren’t a big deal” when the Formation World Tour was announced? So why can’t Rih sell them this era? A mess. I’m living for the karma they’re getting this era.

  38. DIABETIC oracle February 18, 2016

    Sumhow CANCELANNA was able to sell out a 80k capacity stadium not to long ago. This just goes to show as i anticipated the DEADvy got sick of waiting and jump ship. Thats what she gets thinking we wuld just wait in Mac donalds drive through while she sucks off the manager ignoring our request to have the Mac Album ready and ON TIME. SLAVEANNA had until 2013, 2014 at the latest & she blew it & I LIVE for this era

    • kim February 18, 2016

      She only sold out those stadiums because of David Getta who was the biggest stars in Europe at the time. All of her tours have had well know artists attached, she’s never the only draw.

  39. ratedxxx February 18, 2016

    rhinna boo, why are you wasting your time with the camel…he obviously doesnt give two rat a** about you anymore…….

    she just needs to go to a different label…..and show that hooked on phonics bimbo how rachet is really done

    • Cinnamon Girl February 18, 2016

      Why do you Rhitards keep blaming everyone else for Rihanna’s problems? I thought she was such a boss b****?

  40. KillaB February 18, 2016

    Please stop dragging BeyonSLAY into this mess. She is not in competition with Rihanna. They are both in their own lanes, making their own moves. Beyoncé is a brand. Rihanna is trying to build one.

  41. Rihboy February 18, 2016

    Fail to realize how post pone is canceled. But I guess. Sam just needed something to be a k*** about.

    • Cinnamon Girl February 18, 2016

      It’s o.k., navy. Riri doesn’t give a s#### about yawl. I know it’s hard for you to accept it but it’s the truth

  42. LB February 18, 2016

    Postpone does not mean cancel.

    It seems that word is way too advanced for the Hive, like most simple things in life.

    • Cinnamon Girl February 18, 2016

      She don’t give a s### about yawl! You Rhitards let Rihanna treat yawl like s### but continue to defend her. I feel sorry for the navy

      • LB February 18, 2016


  43. Cinnamon Girl February 18, 2016

    @LB poor baby. I know you’re embarrassed. Riri treats yawl like a stepchild

  44. Smile February 19, 2016

    So it was rescheduled, big deal. Good lord trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. The REACH is strong with this blog sometimes.

  45. Coolness February 19, 2016

    I do get that Bey and Rih are the only two Black women doing it major in Pop music but it’s not the former’s responsibility to ‘bail her out in time of need’. Ask yourself this question – would Rihanna have done the same when Bey went through her own plateau with the ‘4’ album?

    I’ve grown fond of Rihanna in recent years but her fans need to STOP placing the blame on others when things go awry. First it was Jay, then Kanye and now, folks are trying to hurl accusations at. Beyonce. I thought the Navy prided themselves on their fav being a boss who owns her masters and calls the shots? Or is nothing more than a label puppet? Consistency is key, Navy.

  46. LDN Chick February 19, 2016


  47. Indie February 19, 2016

    Not even an shred of sympathy for the fact that she’s unwell, God forbid something bad happen to her you’re still go on about bloody album roll outs and ticket sales, anyone with eyes can see how hard she’s been working over the last few weeks and why did you guys not post the Interview with James Corbin when even he said she was rehearsing with him up until the very last minute of the grammys but by doctors orders had to pull out! To tell biased is bad journalism in my opinion, both her and B have changed a few dates, big deal! The years of hate towards her on this site is beyond boring and horrid coming from men about a black female!

  48. What now February 19, 2016

    Yawn. I’m still going.

  49. Really February 19, 2016

    Wow… You people really need something to do. down talking people you will never know, who will never know you. calling them names and joking about their downfalls. You’ll always stay where you are, the watchers, the people on the outside of the ring.

  50. Who cares February 19, 2016

    Anti album completely sucked. Let’s be real the only reason anti did “good” was cause it was free.

  51. BeyBarbFenty February 19, 2016

    it’s too good of an album to be doing this horribly

  52. james227 February 22, 2016

    Well the only thing I have to say is, the way fame came to her is how it will end. Maybe she need to get more drama in her life so that the public will like her again.
