Fire Ends Rihanna Concert Early

Pop diva Rihanna’s Dallas concert at the American Airlines Arena on Friday night was on fire… literally.

After much of the singer’s show went off without a hitch, things took a turn for the worse when a light high above the stage suddenly caught fire.

Rihanna, dressed in canary yellow evening gown, was quickly whisked off the stage- fans however were left wondering if the explosive scene they were witnessing was real or simply part of the evening’s festivities.

The crowd eventually caught on when sparks from the light continued to go off and the arena started filling up with smoke.

According to Dallas Fire & Rescue, the crowd of about 12,000 was safely evacuated and the fire was put out quickly by arena staff.

Rihanna later tweeted about the event saying she was on her way to a meeting to find out exactly what went wrong.
