Rihanna concert at Barclays postponed

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

With the Brooklyn Nets avoiding elimination from the NBA playoffs and forcing a game seven against the Chicago Bulls, the Rihanna concert scheduled for Saturday has been postponed.

In a statement to Rihanna's fans on Friday, Brett Yomark, CEO of Barclays Center, says he looks forward to a special concert next week.

"I want to apologize to Rihanna's fans for the inconvenience of having to reschedule her show at Barclays Center from Saturday, May 4 to Tuesday, May 7 due to Game 7 of the Brooklyn Nets-Chicago Bulls NBA Playoffs series. I want to thank Rihanna for working with us on this new date and for understanding what a Game 7 in Brooklyn means to the borough."

Tickets for Saturday's show will be valid on the new night. Refunds are also available from the seller.

Rihanna, 25, is a six-time Grammy award winner and has set the record for top-selling digital artist of all time.

The Barbados native kicked off her 27-city Diamonds World Tour on March 8 at Buffalo's First Niagra Center in New York.

    A NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.

    Renting out someone's apartment is an easy way to get an inexpensive place to stay if you're a tourist, and cheaper and more convenient than most hotels. But now the government is stepping in and trying to get a handle on a booming business that may not be playing by the rules. State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is squaring off in court with multi-million dollar Internet company Airbnb.
