Rihanna is making some adjustments to her in-progress "Loud" tour, including saying goodbye to opening act Cee Lo Green and adding an Alabama concert to benefit the area's recent tornado victims.

Green announced earlier this week that he was pulling out of the superstar singer's summer trek in order to focus on his role on NBC's "The Voice," as well as his next studio album and a book. "He feels he wouldn't give his fans the show that they deserve," Green's spokesperson stated. In the meantime, Rihanna is continuing her "Loud" journey, which continues tomorrow night (6/29) in Anaheim, CA. The extensive tour also includes a recently added show July 11 in Birmingham, AL. Tickets for that concert go on sale Thursday (6/30) via Ticketmaster and LiveNation, and proceeds from their sales will benefit three charities providing relief from the recent tornadoes: Project Team Up, Tuscaloosa Disaster Relief Fund and Mayor's Disaster Relief Fund (Birmingham). More information about those organizations is available via Rihanna's website.

The "Loud" tour is being touted by promoters as an all-new production with new "costumes and stage design creating a visual and audio event with the once in a lifetime excitement her fans around the world have come to expect from one of the brightest stars in music today." Rihanna's fifth album, "Loud," was released in November and sold 207,000 copies in the U.S. during its first week out -- the best initial-week sales of her career.
