Rihanna’s world tour just hit another speed bump.

After previously rescheduling early dates because of production delays, the Anti tour has just lost The Weeknd as a supporting act. The R&B star (whose debut mixtape House of Balloons coincidentally just turned five years old) was originally scheduled to open for Rihanna on the European dates of her tour.

But a statement from Live Nation confirms that he won’t perform: “Due to some unforeseen changes with upcoming projects, The Weeknd will no longer be joining Rihanna on her upcoming international Anti World Tour.”

She’s currently supported by Travi$ Scott. Read EW’s report from the Anti tour kickoff here.
