Increasingly, it seems, Rihanna‘s World Tour is more of a non-stop, round-the-world party than a concert series. In fact, RadarOnline.com has learned, her Nov. 1 concert in Barbados was indefinitely postponed last week, much to the disappointment of fans, but she’ll still be in town, partying it up at a local nightclub.
Live Nation Global Touring blamed the switch-up on “technical difficulties associated with the transport of equipment” and assured fans that they would announce the new date later this year.
But that didn’t stop the party train: On Wednesday, Rihanna’s brother Rorrey Fenty posted a flyer to Instagram advertising his sister’s upcoming appearance at the Sugar Ultra Lounge in Barbados on November 1, the same night her concert was supposed to take place.

Rihanna concert in Barbados cancelled, supposedly due to the delay in shipping equipment. Wonder what’s the real reason?

Earlier this year, Rihanna cancelled a March 10 concert in Boston when fans were already seated for the show, claiming laryngitis, and then cancelled a planned date in Baltimore after that. She later made up both shows, but fans were still peeved.
And even when the show does go on, it’s not a guarantee that she’ll show up on time.
Luckily, her professional obligations will only hold her back for a few more weeks: The tour wraps up in New Orleans on November 15.
