The music world lit up today when Rihanna announced a batch of 2016 tour dates in North America and Europe. The North American concerts will feature Travi$ Scott as the opening act, while the European dates feature The Weeknd and Big Sean as openers.
RiRi's last tour was the 2013 Diamonds World Tour, which included 96 concerts and reportedly grossed over $140 million. Better have my money, indeed!

Rihanna All Tour Dates and Tickets
Last month, Rihanna announced the album would be called ANTI and shared the cover art. Since she is part of the TIDAL ownership group, the album is expected to stream exclusively through the service (at least upon its initial release). The release date is a mystery at this point and it isn't available for pre-order anywhere online, which has the blogs speculating about a surprise release akin to Beyonce's mega-successful self-titled album release in 2013.
The Barbadian pop singer and cultural icon has released three songs in 2015: "Bitch Better Have My Money," "American Oxygen," and "Four Five Seconds" with Kanye West and Paul McCartney. It is unknown whether any of those songs will be on the ANTI album.
Looking at the album title, the cover art, and the graphics for this tour, it appears Rihanna is making an effort to defy expectations and experiment with new directions. During last night's televised American Music Awards show, Samsung began a campaign for Rihanna's ANTI diaRy, which features cryptic videos and messages online at antidiary.com and a Twitter account called IAmTheKeyHolder.
As if there weren't enough corporate promotional tie-ins already, Puma will "create unique on-site activations and retail programs in select North American tour venues to support and drive awareness of the upcoming launches within Rihanna's collection," which includes the Creeper sneaker. Rihanna is a brand ambassador and creative director of the apparel sportswear company, and her collection is marked by the FENTY PUMA by Rihanna label.
Live Nation is promoting the tour, and ticket sales are happening mainly through Ticketmaster — although each venue can handle ticket sales differently. Check the links above for primary ticket links for every concert.
