Check out the latest Rihanna tour dates posted right here at Eventful.
Born and raised in Barbados, the young superstar had her eyes set firmly on stardom from a very early age. Long before those Rihanna tour dates had the star selling out massive venues worldwide, she proved her determination to make it big by leaving her native Barbados, and moving to the U.S. At the age of just 16, Rihanna auditioned for none other than Jay-Z, and subsequently went on to sign with his label. In 2007, the partnership led to the release of their worldwide smash, ‘Umbrella.’ The single reigned at the top of the U.K charts for an astonishing 10 weeks and remains a fan-favorite at all Rihanna tour dates.
Showcasing her distinctive blend of R&B and Caribbean music, as well as high energy performances and unique stage outfits, Rihanna tour dates are some of the most in-demand events on the popular music circuit today. With fans in all four corners of the globe, the schedule of Rihanna tour dates has the star performing everywhere from the U.S and Canada right across to Ireland, the U.K, Europe, Asia and Australia.
When the young star isn’t busy traveling the globe for those much-anticipated Rihanna tour dates, she is heavily involved in fundraising efforts for her own ‘Believe Foundation’ which seeks to help children with terminal illnesses. Additionally, in 2008, Rihanna collaborated with other major stars such as Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Fergie and Carrie Underwood on a charity single--the theme song for the 'Stand Up to Cancer' anti-cancer campaign. Indeed, Rihanna's philanthropic efforts have been recognized by many within the arts and entertainment worlds. Rihanna is also a cultural ambassador for her home country of Barbados.
