The Brooklyn Nets are returning home for Game 7 of their playoff series against the Chicago Bulls — kicking back Rihanna's scheduled Saturday night concert to next Tuesday.

At Barclays Center, basketball is king.

Barclays CEO Brett Yomark appologized to fans of the 25-year-old, six-time Grammy-winng Rihanna "for the inconvenience of having to reschedule her show."

Rihanna is said to be the all-time top-selling digital artist.

"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," Yomark said.

Saturday night's concert tickets will be valid on Tuesday, and ticket holders have the option of requesting a refund.
