Singer The Weeknd has bowed out of supporting Rihanna on her ‘Anti World Tour’.
According to a statement by the promoter of the tour, Live Nation, the Canadian star will no longer be performing as planned due to “unforeseen” changes in his schedule and his forthcoming projects.
A statement issued to BANG Showbiz reads: “Due to some unforeseen changes with upcoming projects, The Weeknd will no longer be joining Rihanna on her upcoming international ‘Anti World Tour’.”
The Weeknd was billed to perform on the European leg of the ‘Diamonds’ singer’s tour along with rapper Jay Sean.
The ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ hitmaker, born Abel Tesfaye, was to join the ‘Work’ singer at the Amsterdam Arena on June 11 and would have played a further 23 dates, finishing on the final night of her entire tour in Zurich, Switzerland.
Rihanna has already completed seven dates of the tour and her latest concert with her North American support act Travis Scott will take place at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York, on Wednesday night (23.03.16).
So far on the run, Rihanna, 28, has brought out her on/off boyfriend Drake to perform their hit song ‘Work’ together and more surprise guests are expected.
