A light truss above the stage caught fire near the end of tonight’s Rihanna concert at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The small fire was extinguished after a few minutes, but the building was evacuated as the air filled with smoke. There were no injuries, according to media reports. The fire began more than an hour into the show right after Rihanna sang “California King Bed,” during which sparks shot down from above the stage. The remainder of the concert was canceled.
“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!!” Rihanna said on Twitter moments later.
Below is some of the video I shot from Section 107.
