Rihanna is prepping for a major North American tour this summer that will bring some serious attitude.
The Barbadian songbird announced that she’ll kick off her Last Girl On Earth tour on July 2 at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, Washington. Next she’ll cross the border for a show at General Motors Place in Vancouver on July 4.
Rihanna will be bringing Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha along for the ride as both ladies have booked spots as her opening acts. The girls will come back stateside on July 7 with a concert at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California.
RiRi is amped about this tour, which she’s touting as her biggest ever. The singer, who debuted an edgier look and sound with Rated R, said fans are going to be blown away by her Last Girl On Earth shows.
"We’ve never done a tour to this capacity,” she told AOL. “The production is unbelievable and the costume—we just took it to a whole new level. Visually and sonically it’s going to be a big step up from the last time. We just keep growing and this time it is a massive production that I cannot wait for."
The tour will be making stops Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami and New York before wrapping up in Chicago on August 25. Tickets go on sale April 9, and you can visit LiveNation.com for a full list of dates.
