If you believe everything you read, you would probably think that Rihanna’s career is about to fall to bits around her feet after her 777 tour was branded a total flop. The truth however is not singing the same tune as 38 million hits in two weeks proves the Bajan pop princess is very much in demand.
There is no getting away from it, the 777 tour was a flop as it failed to do what it was intended to do. Most of the journalists gave negative feedback, the limited 777 packs have already hit ebay and the papers who normally love Rihanna, know to her fans as RiRi, have been reporting that the ‘stunt’ was a £3million pound disaster. With that said, many artists including the King Of Pop, Michael Jackson have all tried to do a ‘radical’ promotional stunt which in the end has backfired. The good thing in this case is that the Rihanna machine is made of stronger stuff.
Back with her seventh studio LP in seven years, Rihanna’s “Diamonds World Tour” is set to be one of the biggest tours of 2013 and one that no RiRi fan will want to miss. To celebrate the release of her new release “Unapologetic”, Barbados’ biggest export will be bringing her show to some of the UK’s most prestigious stadiums including the Millennium in Cardiff, the official home of Rugby at Twickenham, Sunderlands’s own Stadium of Light as well as arena shows in Birmingham and Manchester.
Rihanna tour dates:
Millennium Stadium, Cardiff – 10th June
Arena, Manchester – 12th June
Twickenham Stadium – 15th June
LG Arena, Birmingham – 17th June
Stadium Of Light, Sunderland – 20th June
With a back catalogue of hits that would make The Jackson Five proud, RiRi’s UK tour will see her performing some of the biggest hits of her career so you can be assured no-one will be stopping the music once it actually starts. Check out this mix if for any reason you have forgotten why this girl is in demand.
