Rihanna’s concert Friday in Nice, France has been canceled after a truck drove into a Bastille Day crowd, killing at least 77 people.

Christian Estrosi, the mayor of Nice and president of the regional government, tweeted that Rihanna’s Anti World Tour stop at Allianz Riviera has been called off, as has a local jazz festival.

Rihanna’s rep confirmed that the singer is “safe” following the attack, in which a truck drove into a group of people watching a fireworks show on the national holiday in the southeastern French city.

The 28-year-old pop star was slated to perform with rapper Big Sean and Norwegian DJ Alan Walker. Her next scheduled performance is Sunday in Frankfurt, Germany at Commerzbank-Arena.
