Fire Erupts at Rihanna’s Dallas Concert [Video]

Rihanna

Rihanna set the stage on fire—literally—during her “LOUD” tour stop in Dallas, Texas, on Friday night (July 8). The red-haired singer was performing “California King Bed” when a light high above the stage burst into flames at the American Airlines Center.

RiRi, dressed in a floor-length yellow gown, finished the song before exiting underneath the stage. Shortly after, smoke filled the arena as the house lights came on and the flames were extinguished. Fans in the front row started making their way toward the exit and eventually the entire venue was evacuated.

Following the incident, Rihanna took to Twitter. “DALLAS!!! We set the stage on FYAH tonight!!! LITERALLY!!! I’m so pissed, I was havin so much fun wit yall too!!! I gotta come back man!!” she tweeted. “DALLAS yall CRAY!!! Love this fuckin place! Glad u guys are safe!!! I promise I’ll be back!!! #MoFYAH.”

She later said that she was headed to a production meeting to find out what caused the fire. The concert is expected to be rescheduled.

    @Twitter.com/CiaraMedlies, You’re a Ciara stan right? How about instead of you yawning, you go and try to help C-Error find her career… and get her to stop playin with puppies every damn week. =)

    Once she has a career, then… maybe , just maybe… your comment will be worthwhile.

    Because her vocals were so bad the stage light caught on fire!!! If she is not being slutty on stage she is a Horrible performer. Thanks to Jay-Z anybody even cares for this girl.

    [Reply]

    isabella! Reply:

    @Stan, wow why are you so bitter you think anybody really cares that jay-z help make her career, everybody has someone who made their career, beyonce’s dad made her career, akon help make lady gaga’s career by discovering her, i mean nobody just appears out of nowhere and becomes a hit they have someone who helps them and that goes for every artist out there.

    Soo fUNNY see people hating On Rih…! so pressed, LOL! is funny when the news is about Rihanna and some of you bring Beyonce to the conversation, she’s doing her thing, leave her alone… sold out shows everywhere, 10 sold out show at the O2 Arena, almost 5 million copies sold WW with LOUD, #5 Best album WW… But I understand people CAN’T stand the fact that she’s in the same level of beyonce, she’s killing the game, so stay Pressed & Stressed! Love Ya’ll! LMAO

    I’m so over people complaining about her singing but yet, you CONTINUE to watch all of her performances. WHY is that? CLEARLY that large crowd at that arena had no problem with her singing, so why do you?

    Anyway, Thank God everyone was safe.

  35. say what

    this could have been much worst, and i read the silly season people comments, shameful
    some one could have died. and to tell the truth
    this could happen to any one none of us are above the law as far as fires go even in our own homes.

    [Reply]

  36. say what

    eopl who are still complaining and laughting about how she sounds, now how long have you haters been complaining?? and how many digitial dowmloads, albums, ringtones, and singles have rihanna sold??? and how many times have she sold the 02 arenas out which holds more than you small minded people can understand?? the buying public says she sound good enough to entertain them, globally.
