Hot on the heels of winning the night’s big award, Video of the Year at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, Rihanna has revealed the North American portion of her Diamonds World Tour. The North American part of the tour will kick off on March 8, 2013 in Buffalo, New York and will include stops in 27 cities (more dates are likely to be announced).
Tickets will go on sale Friday, September 14th on LiveNation.com.
Rihanna’s LOUD Tour made the top 10 grossing tours of 2011 list at number seven. That tour, according to LiveNation, set a record for its 10 sold-out concerts at London’s 02 Arena as the first time that’s been accomplished by a female solo artist.
