Rihanna’s previous tour, the extremely successful “LOUD” Tour solidified Rihanna’s status as one of the top female solo artists of this century.

The announcement of Rihanna’s Diamonds World Tour follows an epic headlining performance at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards.

As the recipient of a phenomenal 6 Grammy Awards, Rihanna has sold over 37 million albums and 146 million digital tracks worldwide, and currently holds the record for top-selling digital artist of all time. In 2012, Forbes crowned Rihanna as the #1 social networking superstar with more than 60 million fans on Facebook and 25 million followers on Twitter in addition to owning over 2.7 billion views on YouTube/VEVO – the most for any female artist. Rihanna’s impressive catalogue of hits includes 11 #1 singles, including “We Found Love” which spent 10 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, 18 #1 singles on the Billboard Dance Club Song Charts, and 22 top 10 singles.

Performer Info

Rihanna: She has sold over 15 million albums and over 45 million singles. Her videos have generated over a billion views on Youtube. She has three Grammy Awards and was Billboard’s ‘Digital Songs Artist of the 2000s’. She is, Rihanna. Now embarking on her fourth tour, Rihanna has firmly cemented her place in popular music history. Check out the latest Rihanna tour dates posted right here at Eventful.

Born and raised in Barbados, the young superstar had her eyes set firmly on stardom from a very early age. Long before those Rihanna tour dates had the star selling out massive venues worldwide, she proved her determination to make it big by leaving her native Barbados, and moving to the U.S. At the age of just 16, Rihanna auditioned for none other than Jay-Z, and subsequently went on to sign with his label. In 2007, the partnership led to the release of their worldwide smash, ‘Umbrella.’ The single reigned at the top of the U.K charts for an astonishing 10 weeks and remains a fan-favorite at all Rihanna tour dates.

Showcasing her distinctive blend of R&B and Caribbean music, as well as high energy performances and unique stage outfits, Rihanna tour dates are some of the most in-demand events on the popular music circuit today. With fans in all four corners of the globe, the schedule of Rihanna tour dates has the star performing everywhere from the U.S and Canada right across to Ireland, the U.K, Europe, Asia and Australia.

When the young star isn’t busy traveling the globe for those much-anticipated Rihanna tour dates, she is heavily involved in fundraising efforts for her own ‘Believe Foundation’ which seeks to help children with terminal illnesses. Additionally, in 2008, Rihanna collaborated with other major stars such as Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Fergie and Carrie Underwood on a charity single--the theme song for the 'Stand Up to Cancer' anti-cancer campaign. Indeed, Rihanna's philanthropic efforts have been recognized by many within the arts and entertainment worlds. Rihanna is also a cultural ambassador for her home country of Barbados.

With a new set of Rihanna tour dates kicking off later this year, you’ll want to stay informed on when she’s coming to a venue near you. Make Eventful YOUR source for all the latest news and up-to-date information on Rihanna tour dates.
