Rihanna Tour - 2013 Diamonds World Tour
One of the best-selling artists of all time, Rihanna, will travel across the World on her fifth concert tour. The Diamonds World Tour will begin in the United States on March 8 in Buffalo, NY. Following 32 shows in North America, Rihanna will tour Africa and Europe. In 2012, Rihanna embarked on a brief tour that totaled seven shows, in seven countries, in seven days. The 777 Tour was scheduled to promote the release of Unapologetic. Rihanna's 2013 concert will promote the same album which was her first No. 1 debut album and seventh in all.
Unapologetic has many notable singles including "Diamonds," "Stay," and "Pour it Up." You may have caught Rihanna live performing "Diamonds" at the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, on Saturday Night Live, on the UK X Factor, or most recently on the season finale of The Voice. The album's first single reached No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and has topped the charts in several countries worldwide.
