Though Rihanna was in Nice at the time of the attack, her representative has confirmed that ”she’s safe”.

Fans were looking forward to the Rihanna Nice Concert as the award winning singer was due to perform at the Allianz Stadium tonight as part of her ‘Anti World Tour’ but had to cancel following the tragedy.

The fatal attack saw a white truck driving through a mammoth crowd of people who were enjoying the fireworks while celebrating Bastille Day last night.

A tweet from Nice mayor Christian Estrosi confirmed that the Rihanna Nice show has been cancelled, adding that the city’s jazz festival will not take place as planned.

The Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet revealed that the lorry driver had been ”neutralised” and no hostages were taken.

This comes few months after Eagles of Death Metal were caught up in the terrorist attacks in Paris, France, in November. Their concert at Le Bataclan theatre was stormed by gunmen.

There was also a mass shooting at the venue, which left 89 people dead as three suicide bombers struck near the city’s Stade de France football stadium.

Again, just last month, a security guard killed 49 people in a terrorist attack at a gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando, Florida, US.

A lot of celebrities took to social media to pay tributes to the victims and to console the affected families.

Taylor Swift personally shared a handwritten note, mentioning all 49 names of the victims while sending her love to the families in the wake of the unthinkable and devastating tragedy.
