Rihanna coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa
Better have your money ready, because Rihanna is about to get a lot of it.
A day after rumors started swirling that she would surprise-release her new album ANTI any day now, Rihanna has announced a world tour in support of it, including a gig at Tampa's Amalie Arena on March 13. Travi$ Scott will open the show. Tickets start at $27.25, and they go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Dec. 3 (although pre-sales and VIP sales begin as early as Nov. 30). Click here for details.
According to various reports, including Teen Vogue, it'll be available on the streaming site Tidal on Black Friday, followed by other outlets Dec. 4. Songs expected to make the cut include the hits FourFive Seconds, American Oxygen and B---- Better Have My Money.
By the way, March 13 is looking to be a pretty huge day in Tampa Bay -- the St. Petersburg Grand Prix, the Band Perry at the Florida Strawberry Festival, the final day of the Gasparilla Music Festival and probably a whole lot more. Something tells us Rihanna will still manage to sell a few tickets.
