Anti World Tour
On Nov. 23, Rihanna took to social media to confirm the long-rumored news of a huge arena concert tour. Scheduled to kick off early in 2016, the Anti World Tour will support Rihanna’s album of the same name, which is due out the day after Thanksgiving.
The upcoming Rihanna tour will remain in North America from late February through mid-March. It includes stops at many major arenas across the U.S. and Canada, including New York’s Barclays Center, Chicago’s United Center, and Vancouver’s Rogers Arena. The first leg of the world tour will end on May 18 with a show at Phillips Arena in Atlanta, Ga. Travis Scott is scheduled to open all North American dates.

Long-Awaited Anti Album to Follow Hit Singles “FourFiveSeconds” and “BBHMM”
The 2016 Rihanna tour will support her eighth studio album, “Anti.” The new record has been a long time in the making: It’s been almost a year since Rihanna dropped the record’s first single, “FourFiveSeconds.” That collaboration with Paul McCartney and Kanye West came out on Jan. 24, and eventually rose to No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Other singles already released from “Anti” include “BBHMM” and “American Oxygen.” Rihanna did not reveal the full track listing ahead of the album’s release, but it’s been confirmed that “FourFiveSeconds” collaborator Kanye West is serving as executive producer on “Anti.” Early reports also confirmed that Sia, Kiesza, Calvin Harris, Tinashe, and R. City had all submitted songs for consideration on the record.
