Sounds dope, right? Not to the Baltimore police, who reportedly prevented the show from happening.
Per The Baltimore Sun:
In a message dated May 1 sent to Capt. Eric Kowalczyk, then the head of media relations for Baltimore Police, an officer outlines a conversation he had with a representative for the singer.
The representative “advised that Rihanna wants to walk with the protesters as well as perform a free concert,” the officer wrote. “He added that she will be arriving by plane and in an effort to divert press/media she will be traveling to the city by train (or by car if necessary).
The possible concert was also mentioned in a situation report dated May 1 and indicates police might have stopped any attempt at holding a show.
“Possible Rihanna Concert at Penn & North,” the update reads. “No time given. Police are claiming they have no permit so it will not be allowed.”
Gotdamn. Rih’s just out here trying to do some good. Can she live?
