It’s not just Chicago Bulls fans who are upset about the Brooklyn Nets forcing a seventh game of their NBA playoff series on Saturday night. Rihanna’s concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays center will now be postponed to accommodate the winner-take-all contest.

In a statement to fans, Brett Yormark, CEO of Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets, said, “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. We are looking forward to a special concert and I hope Rihanna will be our guest at Game 7.”

Tickets for Rihanna’s show will be honored on the new night, or refunds will be given.
