Rihanna broke down in tears during the opening night of her UK and Ireland tour last night. Watch the video below.

After arriving 30 minutes late to the stage of Dublin’s Aviva Stadium, the singer then began to cry two songs into the set. She made it through just a few words of ‘Love The Way You Lie (Part 2)’ before breaking down in tears - though she eventually continued, and made it through the rest of her 24-song set.

The singer didn’t explain the reason for her tears, though she did later say, "I only have ever in my life heard an audience of people scream so loud that they sound like one voice and that only happens in Ireland, in Dublin. Thank you so much.”
