Officials at Live Nation announced Tuesday that the Rihanna concert at American Airlines Center, scheduled for April 16, 7:30 pm, has been postponed. Below is the full statement:

The Rihanna Diamonds World Tour previously scheduled for this evening in Dallas has been postponed. It was confirmed today by Live Nation.

Unfortunately, as a result of illness Rihanna is unable to perform this evening at Dallas’s American Airlines Center. Fans are instructed to retain their tickets to this event pending rescheduled show date information.

No surprise, really. News broke Monday that the singer had canceled her April 15 Houston performance at Toyota Center; at that time, there were no plans to cancel the Dallas show. Rihanna had previously canceled concerts in Boston (March 10) and Baltimore (March 12), citing laryngitis and fever.

Rihanna has vowed to reschedule; however, she has a full concert schedule planned through May 6 and then takes a break until May 24, when she embarks on the North Africa/Europe leg of her tour in Rabbat, Morocco.
