Rihanna, The Weeknd Perform at 'We Can Survive' Benefit Concert
In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, CBS Radio hosted its annual “We Can Survive” benefit concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday. In addition to hit-filled sets from The Weeknd, Sam Smith, Maroon 5, Demi Lovato, and Nick Jonas, Rihanna closed out the evening with a surprise performance.
Dressed in a pinstriped suit and lacy yellow bustier, she opened with “Bitch Better Have My Money,” and ran through hits like “Pour It Up,” “Stay,” “Umbrella,” and “We Found Love.” As fireworks exploded over the Bowl, she closed with “Diamonds.”
Earlier in the evening, The Weeknd lit up the stage with material off his chart-topping album Beauty Behind the Madness including his No. 1 singles “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face,” and even performed older cuts from his mixtape trilogy.
Proceeds from the concert benefited Young Survival Coalition, which provides support for young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.
