Rihanna Announces Dates for North American ‘LOUD’ Tour

Rihanna is turning up the volume in arenas across the country with her LOUD tour. Seven dates have been announced for the North American trek, set to kick off June 4 at Baltimore’s 1st Mariner Arena and traveling to major markets including Los Angeles and Toronto.

The Barbados babe, who will play 45 dates in Europe prior to coming to the U.S., will perform material from her fifth album Loud. The new show will feature extravagant production, wardrobe changes, and stage design, creating a visual and audio experience like none other. Tickets go on sale to the public on February 14, but Citi cardmembers can get first dibs when the pre-sale begins Friday at 10 a.m.

“We’re creating an incredible ride with this tour. I’m excited to get out on the road and share my new music from this album,” said Rihanna. “We are going to have an amazing time and I know my fans are ready to get LOUD!”

The 22-year-old singer wrapped her “Last Girl On Earth” tour last year with fellow pop star Ke$ha. She will take the stage with Drake at this Sunday’s Grammys, where she is nominated for four awards.
