Rihanna Concert Cut Short By Fire
RiRi and her band were forced off stage by blaze…
A fire forced Rihanna to end a concert early on Friday night, 8 July.
The Man Down singer’s show in Dallas was brought to a swift end after a blaze broke out directly above the stage. It’s thought the cause of the fire was a row of lights, as footage posted online showed sparks falling from rigging above the stage.
Various reports stated that parts of Rihanna’s set had caught on fire, as well as stage curtains.
Afterwards she tweeted her fans: "DALLAS!!! We set the stage on FYAH tonight!!! LITERALLY!!!...I was havin so much fun wit yall too!!! I gotta come back man!!"
RiRi continued: “DALLAS yall CRAY!!! Love this f***n place! Glad u guys are safe!!! I promise I'll be back!!! Heading into a production meeting to find out exactly what happened!!! Keep u posted.”
The arena was evacuated and the fire brigade was called but the blaze was extinguished before they arrived, Reuters reported.
Some fans have already asked for refunds but it’s thought more likely that the S&M star will return at the next available date to do the show from scratch.
The sexy star recently said she was ready to fall in love again, but said that when it came to men, it was best to treat them mean. "Men are like hunters, they like the chase, so you have to keep 'em guessing,” Rihanna said. “I'm like that too. I get bored fast. So if someone can make me laugh, that's the best.”
