Rihanna's concert in Nice, France, has been cancelled after a horrific incident in the city on Wednesday wherein a truck drove into a Bastille Day crowd, leaving at least 80 people dead. Christian Estrosi, the mayor of Nice, announced the cancellation of the stop on Rihanna's Anti World Tour. She was set to perform with Big Sean and Norwegian DJ Alan Walker in Nice on Friday. A local jazz festival was also cancelled. According to Entertainment Weekly, Rihanna's rep has confirmed that she is "safe" following the attack.
