On Monday November 23rd 2015 Rihanna released that she would be going on a world tour for her soon to be released new album titled Anti. The tour will begin towards the end of February 2016 and will carry out well into August. Tickets for the North America Tour Dates go on sale December 3rd via LiveNation.
That being said, it is safe to assume that Rihanna’s first album in 3 years will release well before then, with rumours it could be dropped anytime this week. Fans have long awaited this album as Rihanna’s last album titled Unapologetic was released in 2012. Her last 5 albums have come out in November so we are betting heavy on the release to come out this month. She’s chosen a time where a large series of releases have occurred at end of this year including Justin Bieber’s Purpose, One Direction’s Made in the AM and Adele’s 25, Rihanna will have some big name competition in attempts of stealing the spotlight from these amazing new albums.
Fans got a small dose of the what to expect from the album in October when Rihanna unveiled her Anti album artwork at MAMA Gallery in Los Angeles, California. The artwork is exactly what you’d expect from Rihanna, dope. It features a little girl (resembles a young Rihanna) holding a balloon, splattered with red paint and covered in braille poetry.
Fan’s can see Rihanna preform live on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at Air Canada Centre. We wouldn’t be surprised if she (like almost every other big name artist who comes to Toronto) adds a second show date during her visit to Toronto, as there is a few days left open before and after her show here in the 6ix.
