Rihanna coming to the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa




It's a big day for MTV VMA Video of the Year winners in Tampa Bay. (Wow, when's the last time you could say that?)

One day after Rihanna and Calvin Harris' We Found Love won top honors at the 2012 Video Music Awards, Calvin Harris is performing at Tropicana Field following Friday's Rays game ... and Rihanna has just announced a gig in Tampa.

The singer's Diamonds World Tour will hit the Tampa Bay Times Forum on April 19, according to a release from the Forum. Tickets are $36.75-$122.25, and they go onsale Sept. 21. Click here for info.

With six Grammys (and more nominations sure to come for We Found Love), not to mention that Esquire Sexiest Woman Alive title, Rihanna's just about at the top of her game these days. The only question is, will she draw a bigger crowd to the Forum than Lady Gaga one month earlier?
