Rihanna Announces 'The Anti World Tour'

Pop superstar, Rihanna, has announced her long awaited tour- her first long-term headlining tour since 2013- that is scheduled to make its way throughout North America and Europe.  This lengthy trek, which is dubbed ‘The Anti World Tour’, kicks off at the Viejas Arena in San Diego, California on February 26th, and will round the US and Canada until the May 7th stop at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.  Leg two of ‘The Anti World Tour’ will mark Rihanna’s triumphant return to European markets, beginning on June 11th at The Amsterdam Arena in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and will run until its closing date at Letzigrund Stadium in Zurich, Switzerland on August 12th.  A full list of tour dates can be found below. 

Rihanna will be touring in support of her new album, Anti, which is scheduled to be released on December 4th, and features the hit songs, “American Oxygen”, “B**** Better Have My Money”, and “FourFiveSeconds”- the latter of which features Sir Paul McCartney and Kanye West.  More information on Rihanna can be found at

Over the course of the past year, Rihanna has graced some of the biggest stages under some of the brightest spotlights, performing at a handful of one-off events such as the famed Rock in Rio Festival, Superbowl XLIX Pre-Bowl Party, the 2015 iHeartRadio Festival, and others.  For all of these performances, and also for the upcoming ‘Anti World Tour’, Pearl Artist, Michael Reid will be backing Rihanna on this 6 month-long arena tour, armed with his huge Reference Series drum kit, which is custom painted in Matte Black with black hardware and a matching matte black ICON Rack System.  More information on Michael Reid, including full specs on his must see Reference Series rig, can be found here.
