Say it ain’t so!


The Weeknd bows out of the ANTI World Tour

Oh no! The Weeknd has officially announced today that he will no longer support Rihanna as an opening act during her international ANTI World Tour leg.

Live Nation issued a statement early Wednesday morning:

Due to some unforeseen changes with upcoming projects, The Weeknd will no longer be joining Rihanna on her upcoming international Anti World Tour.

The reason given is pretty vague, but we hope this possibly means new music from the Weeknd is coming soon!

Big Sean, the other international support act, is still scheduled to open the shows overseas. With the Weeknd’s absence, Rihanna could possibly fill the empty space with another opening act. Perhaps she’ll bring Travis Scott with her?

The international leg of the ANTI World Tour kicks off in Amsterdam in June. You can more dates and tickets on Ticketmaster.

Who should replace the Weeknd?
