Rihanna Cancels Lollapalooza Concert Over Zika Concerns

Rihanna has pulled out of her appearance as a headliner at the 2016 Lollapalooza Colombia Festival due to her concerns over the Zika virus.

The entire festival, which was set to take place in September, has been canceled as the organizers have not been able to find a sufficient replacement.

“The organizers wish to express their deep appreciation to all the fans who supported the festival since day one, as well as the sponsors and the media partners,” a statement on the festival’s website read.

Other performers who were set to hit the stage at the festival included Lana Del Rey, Wiz Khalifa, Disclosure, The Chainsmokers, and more.
