Rihanna’s new album Anti will be released in the coming months, with most recent news suggesting she is still looking for songs to finish the LP that will be her eighth in total. No matter, the world tour dubbed the Anti World Tour will see Rihanna venturing all over the globe to bring her new music to our ears, with a leg of UK arena dates taking place throughout June.
Rihanna’s most recent 3 albums have all been huge successes, all having reached the number one spot in the UK Album Chart. Produced largely by Kanye West, Anti is the most anticipated album from Rihanna yet and will see collaborations with other producers such as David Guetta, Paul McCartney, Mike Dean, and Travis Scott. Songwriters including Kiesza and Sia have also contributed to the album and there will also be a number of guest vocalists too.
Although there is no release date for the album yet, the Anti World Tour will kick off in June and will be visiting arenas around the UK, starting with Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on the 14th and finishing with Manchesters Emirates Old Trafford on the 29th. There will be a performance at London’s Wembley Stadium on Friday the 24th.
As well as the leading lady herself, Rihanna will be joined by very special guests The Weekend and also Big Sean.
