“Unfortunately, following her sold-out concert on Friday, Rihanna has contracted laryngitis and per doctor’s instruction is unable to perform this evening,” the concert promoter said in a statement.

Rih took to Twitter to apologize to her fans for the cancellation (the concert will be rescheduled for a later date).

“BOSTON this is the hardest thing for me to deal with! I feel like we’ve been waiting on this day forever, and I’m hurt that I let you down,” she wrote.

The “Diamonds” singer — who kicked off the tour March 8 in Buffalo, New York — is expected to return to the stage in Baltimore March 12.
