“Can’t Feel My Face” no more. Rihanna fans looking forward to The Weeknd’s opening set on her European tour will have to go without, as the 26-year-old has dropped out of her “Anti” tour.
On Thursday, the two-time Grammy winner revealed his cancellation via Live Nation, citing a busy schedule. Given he has yet to personally comment on the matter, fans are left to dig through his social media trail in search of an explanation. On Tuesday, he cryptically tweeted “it’s my job to make music…not to convince you,” which only fueled more speculation and curiosity. Rihanna, for her part, has not addressed the change in acts. She kicked off the tour on March 12 in Jacksonville, Fla. Her album, “Anti,” was released on Jan. 28.
Travis Scott is set to join Rihanna on tour in North America, while Big Sean will continue as planned to open her sets in Europe.
The Weeknd was nominated for an Academy Award this year for his song “Earned It,” in “Fifty Shades of Grey.” He is in a relationship with the model Bella Hadid.
