Rihanna plans "Diamonds" world tour, starting with North America
On the heels of her recent Video of the Year VMA win, Rihanna has unleashed the itinerary for her "Diamonds" world tour, which gets underway next spring.
The platinum-selling songstress begins the "Diamonds" trek with a March 8 performance in Buffalo, NY, followed by another 26 arena shows that are scattered across the U.S. and Canada. The first leg concludes with a May 4 concert in Brooklyn, NY. More dates will be announced in the coming weeks, according to a press release.
On-sales for this springtime leg begin Sept. 14. Details are available at the performer's website f.
Rihanna continues supporting last November's "Talk That Talk," her sixth studio effort, which landed at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and topped the magazine's R&B Albums and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
At last week's (9/6) MTV Video Music Awards, Rihanna opened the event with her first-ever performance of "Cockiness," her latest single. The Barbados-born singer also took home a moonman for the coveted Video of the Year for "We Found Love," featuring Calvin Harris.
