Rihanna’s Diamonds tour so far has been everything but awesome, judging by what angry fans are saying on the social media. Even at that, the pop singer keeps doing what she’s doing – showing up late and drunk to her concerts.
The latest episode occurred in far-away Adelaide, Australia on Thursday, when the singer showed up a record 80 minutes late and drunk to her concert, and didn’t even bother to apologize to the fans she kept waiting.
‘When she finally arrived, it was obvious Rihanna had been enjoying a few sherbets [Australian slang for beers] backstage,’ wrote Tobias Handke, a reviewer for AustraliaFM. ‘If her glassy eyes didn’t arouse suspicions, then her constant crotch grabbing and lack of actual singing would have given the game away. Not that Rihanna didn’t give her vocal chords a good workout, but throughout the concert, particularly during the first half, she relied on a backing track and the harmonious support of her backup singers, while she concentrated on her dance moves.’
Well the reviewer was trying to be nice, but the real info about the concert came from her angry fans’ tweets after the show:

Already, Rihanna had pissed off her fans in Perth, Australia on Tuesday after she showed up 40 minutes late and delivered what many called a ‘lackluster’ performance. In fact, this kind of review has been the norm ever since her tour took off earlier this year. For example, she showed up late and ‘totally drunk’ at a Poland concert, and was even pelted with food during her Manchester gig.
