Rihanna’s Saturday night show at the Barclays Center has been pushed back, thanks to the Brooklyn Nets’ impressive playoff comeback against the Chicago Bulls.

The Nets, once down 3-1 in the series, forced a Game 7 in Brooklyn on Saturday after beating the Bulls 95-92 last night in Chicago. Rihanna’s show will now take place on Tuesday night. Tickets for Saturday’s show will be honored on Tuesday. Fans who can’t make it can get a refund where they bought the tickets. Rihanna’s Sunday show will go on as scheduled.

“I want to apologize to Rihanna’s fans for the inconvenience of having to reschedule her show at Barclays Center,” Brett Yormark, chief executive of Barclays Center and the Nets, said in a statement. “I want to thank Rihanna for working with us on this new date and for understanding what a Game 7 in Brooklyn means to the borough.”

Yormark also invited RiRi to be the team’s guest to watch Game 7. Maybe she’ll sit next to pal Jay-Z.
