In support of her new album, ANTI, Rihanna has announced a massive tour that will see her throughout North America and overseas for the first chunk of 2016. The North American leg of shows will feature Travi$ Scott as support, and kicks off on February 26 in San Diego, CA, at the Viejas Arena. It wraps up on May 7 on Oakland, CA, at the Oracle Arena. The overseas leg of dates begins on June 11 at the Amsterdam Arena, and wraps up on August 12 at the Letzigrung Stadium in Zurich. For those shows, The Weeknd and Big Sean will be on tap. Amazing! See below for the full–lengthy–itinerary.

**********

R&B goddess Rihanna has just announced plans for her eighth studio album. Entitled ANTI, the LP is due out sometime this November and is rumored to be produced by Kanye West. Over the last few months, the singer released singles “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “FourFiveSeconds” and “American Oxygen,” although it’s unclear whether they will appear on the new record.

Besides new music, ANTI also features the artwork of Roy Nachum, who used an actual photo of a childhood Rihanna for the cover art inspiration. Further, poet Chole Mitchell came onboard to write seven poems for the album, which were then turned into brail and featured in the record’s inlay. Truly a work of art, we’re eager to hear what Rihanna has to say to us in her new material.

Besides curiosity about this new artsy direction Robyn (Robyn Rihanna Fenty) is taking, fans are also eager for her to make a tour announcement. While rumors of a Kanye West/Rihanna double-billing seem to have fizzled, one would assume she’ll be hitting the road in support of ANTI. Stay tuned for more details as they unfold!
