Rihanna Reveals Destinations for her 777 Tour
Rihanna's 777 tour -- in which she'll be jetting to select cities with some invited fans and press aboard a chartered plane -- now has its seven destinations set. But the venues that the pop star will be playing at won't be announced until she arrives in each city, according to a press release.
The tour will begin Nov. 14 in Mexico City, stop in London on Nov. 19 (the release date for the singer's latest album, Unapologetic), and conclude in New York a day later.
"We are turning this jumbo jet into our tour bus," Rihanna stated in the release. "We're practically living on this thing for a week: sleeping, partying, all together. Me, my fans, the press...it's going to be a wild ride. I wanted it to be a rock n' roll adventure, and I think when it's over it will be the coolest thing I've ever done."
The 777 tour -- named in anticipation of the artist's seventh album -- carries sponsors of HTC Corporation, River Island and Microsoft, the release states.
Rihanna's first single from her new album, "Diamonds," debuted in September on Billboard's Digital Songs chart at #7 with 133,000 copies sold. She performed "Stay" as well as "Diamonds" in a Saturday Night Live appearance this past weekend.
The artist will be beginning her Diamonds World Tour on March 8, 2013 in Buffalo, New York. Below is the announced route for the 777 tour:
November 14 - Mexico City
November 15 - Toronto
November 16 - Stockholm
November 17 - Paris
November 18 - Berlin
