“Today” Show’s Summer Concert Line-up

Rihanna’s “Today” show entrance experienced a slight hiccup Friday morning when one fan got a little too close for comfort. As the singer walked through the audience toward the outdoor stage, an overzealous fan grabbed Rihanna around the waist and dragged her toward the barrier that separated the singer from the masses. A quick-thinking back-up dancer was able to free Rihanna from the fan’s grasp and she continued her walk toward the stage while singing her latest hit “S&M,” without missing a beat.

Rihanna’s performance was the first for the new season of NBC’s “Today” show Toyota Summer Concert Series. The Backstreet Boys and the New Kids on the Block are among the performers scheduled for next week. Rihanna is scheduled to kick off her “Loud” tour next week.
