Rihanna Announces 777 Tour Details
Rihanna's seven-day international mini-tour to promote her 'Unapologetic' album kicks off on Wednesday, Nov. 14 in Mexico City and wraps up Nov. 20 in New York City. RiRi just revealed the details of the 777 Tour, though the exact venues will remain secret until she arrives in each city.
Other cities on the schedule include Berlin, Stockholm, Toronto, Paris, and London, where she will perform on Monday, Nov. 19, the worldwide release date for the album.
"I am so excited about the 777 Tour," Rihanna said in a press release. "We are turning this jumbo jet into our tour bus. We're practically living on this thing for a week: sleeping, partying, all together. Me, my fans, the press... it's going to be a wild ride. I wanted it to be a rock n' roll adventure, and I think when it's over it will be the coolest thing I've ever done."
With this whirlwind promotional tour and the success of the lead single 'Diamonds,' we're betting 'Unapologetic' will end up as RiRi's first No. 1 album in the U.S., after five straight releases that reached the Top 5 but fell just short of the top position. She begins a more lengthy North American tour in March 2013 with opening act A$AP Rocky.
