Sick Rihanna cancels second Swedish show

Rihanna has cancelled a second show in Sweden following her hospitalisation in the country on Monday (31Oct11).

The Umbrella star scrapped a concert in Malmo after she was struck down with a nasty bout of influenza, but was due to return to the stage in Stockholm on Wednesday (02Nov11).


However, Rihanna axed the show at the Ericsson Globe venue just an hour before the performance was due to start following a consultation with her doctor.


A statement from promoters Live Nation reads, "Unfortunately, we need to report that the concert with Rihanna... at the Ericsson Globe has been cancelled due to illness. Rihanna is exhausted and sick. Unfortunately we have once again been forced to make a difficult decision at the last minute."
