Concert organiser Pineapple Concerts Sdn Bhd said it has received an official statement from William Morris Agency in Los Angeles that the show will be rescheduled to a future date. In a statement released Tuesday, the company stressed that this was not a cancellation but a mere postponement.
Rihanna’s management will confirm within two weeks, a replacement date to be mutually agreed by Pineapple Concerts and the artiste, Pineapple Concerts managing director Razman Razali said in the statement. “We sincerely regret this unavoidable shift in schedule and apologise to the fans for any inconvenience caused,” he said, advising fans to hold on to their tickets for the new date.
The R&B star involved in an altercation with her boyfriend, singer Chris Brown, after a pre-Grammy Awards party, that left bruises and a scratch on her face, according to US media reports. The 20-year-old performer, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, is cooperating with investigators building a domestic violence case against Brown, a police source said Monday.
Detectives booked Brown on Sunday on suspicion of making criminal threats against her. Brown remains free on US$50,000 bail, but neither he nor his attorney would speak about the allegations.
