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.
