Rihanna resumes tour in Germany

R&B star Rihanna returned to the stage in Germany on Friday (04Nov11) after bouncing back from her hospitalisation earlier this week (begs31Oct11).

The Umbrella hitmaker was forced to scrap two concerts in Sweden on Monday (31Oct11) and Wednesday (02Nov11) after she was admitted to hospital with a nasty bout of influenza.

Live Nation promoters blamed Rihanna's illness on exhaustion, but she was back in the spotlight on Friday when she resumed the European leg of her Loud tour in Hanover, Germany.

In a tweet to fans before the show, Rihanna wrote, "I missed you guys!!! Got a lil rest tho.... I HATE cancelling shows! Sorry Sweden, I can't wait to come back! ...HANNOVER its (sic) ON!!!"
