Eight dates have been rescheduled on Rihanna's tour, including stops in San Diego, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, Phoenix, New Orleans and Oakland and San Jose, Calif.

Following her Grammy performance cancellation from a bout with bronchitis, several dates of Rihanna's Anti tour, initially scheduled to begin at the end of February, have been postponed.

Eight dates have been rescheduled on Rihanna's tour, including stops in San Diego, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, Phoenix, New Orleans and Oakland and San Jose, Calif. A source in San Jose tells Billboard that the second show on the tour –– set for Feb. 28 at the SAP Center and moved to May 8 — was having production problems and the show wouldn't be ready in time, which has been known for a couple of weeks. The show was headed for a sellout.

Rihanna's rep confirmed to Billboard that "production delays" were behind the postponement.

The tour will now begin on March 12 in Jacksonville, Fla.; see the full list of rescheduled dates below, with the new dates bolded.

The singer will head out on her global trek in support of her eighth studio effort Anti. Rapper Travis Scott will be her plus-one for the North American leg while Big Sean and The Weeknd will join her for the European stint.

Billboard has reached out to reps for Rihanna for comment.
