Exclusive: Fans Defend Rihanna Over Concert Tardiness
On Tuesday morning, multiple media outlets reported that Rihanna showed up nearly two hours late to her show in Birmingham, England on Monday night. According to reports, fans were furious that the singer appeared on stage at 10:30 p.m. for her 8:30 p.m. performance.
But after some digging, HipHollywood has learned that the r&b diva was right on time.
“People are probably saying she was late because it was billed for 8:30 to start but didn’t start till 9:30,” one fan at the concert told HH. “She wasn’t actually (late) but her supporting act wasn’t very good. She was fab though,” another fan told us.
“I don’t know why the media are reporting that @Rihanna was late yesterday at Birmingham, she wasn’t! There’s always a support act first,” a concert goer wrote on Twitter.
So it looks like despite the reports, RiRi was on time, and apparently had a great show.
