    Rihanna fans will have to wait just a little bit longer to see the pop/hip-hop starlet in all her glory: The superstar singer has just announced a postponement for her San Diego show at SDSU's Viejas Arena -- originally scheduled for Friday, Feb. 26 -- to Monday, May 9 at the same location.

    According to an official press release which cites "production delays" as the primary reason for the rescheduled dates, the San Diego show is one of eight shows to be affected. Shows in Phoenix, Arizona; San Jose, California; Dallas, Texas; Austin, Texas; Houston, Texas; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Atlanta, Georgia were also rescheduled for later dates.

    All tickets previously purchased for the Feb. 26 show will be honored at the new date.

    The Barbados-raised singer hasn't performed in San Diego since April 2013, when she performed at Valley View Casino Center during her "Diamonds" tour. Needless to say, the demand for tickets to the upcoming "Anti World Tour" date has been through the roof. 

    Coincidentally, Rihanna was set to perform at the 58th annual Grammy Awards, held on Sunday, Feb. 15, 2016 at Los Angeles' Staples Center. However, citing doctor's orders to rest her voice, she withdrew from the ceremony just hours before her scheduled performance. 

    For the unfamiliar, Rihanna rose to fame on the strength of her debut single "Pon de Replay" off her 2005 album "Music of the Sun" -- when it hit No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart. Since then, she's followed it with seven more multi-platinum albums, including her latest, "Anti," which was just released on Jan. 28, 2016 via the music-streaming service TIDAL.
