Rihanna has apologized to fans after arriving onstage almost two hours late for her show in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Thursday night (29Sep11).
The Umbrella hitmaker kicked off a string of three shows in the city but the audience at the Odyssey Arena were left waiting for their idol.
Several fans took to their Twitter.com page to vent their frustration at Rihanna's delayed entrance, with one claiming she was an hour and 45 minutes late taking to the stage.
Rihanna eventually made her grand arrival, and she took time out after the show to thank the crowd for their understanding.
In a post on the microblogging site, she writes, "BELFAST sorry for being so late 2nt! BIG SHOW! FIRST NIGHT! Things dont (sic) always run smoothly or as planned, but I dearly appreciate ur (your) patience."
