Whitney. Madonna. Rihanna? Yes. She may still seem like the new kid on the block, but Rihanna has already put herself in a position to be compared with the some of the all-time greats. The release of the first single off of her 2012 album, Unapologetic, pushed Rihanna right into record-breaking status. Diamonds became her twelfth number one hit and tied her with the Madonna and The Supremes for the fourth most number one hits on the Billboard Charts.
Now, with her Diamonds world tour is kicking off in March, it's you can choose what kind of performer this good girl gone bad is. And with tons of stops along the way there is no reason you should miss out on Rihanna tickets. Not only do Rihanna’s charm, style, and amazing vocals set her amongst the best in the business, but fans seem to be enthralled with her story and can’t help but keep rooting for RiRi.
Rihanna got her big break after being introduced to record producer Evan Rogers. Impressing him so much with her vocals that along with Carl Sturken, they helped her make a demo tape. It didn’t take long after the demo was released for Def Jam President Jay-Z to request a meeting with her. She performed Whitney Houston's version of "For the Love of You" for the rap mogul as well as industry godfather L.A. Reid., signing a six album deal the day of the audition.
In August 2005, her first single, "Pon de Replay", topped the Billboard Charts and was recognized worldwide. Within a month of releasing her first album, Rihanna was already hard at work on album number two. By the time that album number three came along, Rihanna was ready for a change. Unsatisfied with sticking to one genre of music and becoming typed into one style, Rihanna began a movement that would catapult her from recognized to renowned. The new tracks on this album, Good Girl Gone Bad, were loaded with uptempo dance beats, bright undertones, and landed her several Grammy nominations. Good Girl Gone Bad would top the charts worldwide and was critically acclaimed across the continents.
Throughout Rihanna’s stellar climb to the top, her relationship with R&B singer Chris Brown became an obsession throughout the world. Reminiscent of Ike and Tina, their love/hate romance came to a crashing halt when Rihanna’s performance at the 51st Annual Grammy Awards was cancelled. Rumors of domestic violence and threats littered the paparazzi outlets and Brown was eventually charged. Just like when she was a little girl, Rihanna turned her pain into music. Teaming up with Jay-Z and Kanye West, their song Run This Town landed Rihanna her very first Grammy. After collaborating with artists across the board like Eminem she announced that her next album would be under new management. Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation. The Loud Tour brought Rihanna to new heights, breaking sellout records in London and producing her second live video album that was released in 2012.
Rihanna will be at it again as her Diamonds World Tour begins on March 8th. With 33 confirmed dates, ticket quantities are dwindling and becoming more and more sought after. She will be headlining alongside rapper ASAP Rocky after their collaboration on the song “Cockiness (Love It)”, the sixth single release from her fifth album. Currently, the average price for Rihanna tickets are averaging $506/seat, with the average get-in price hovering around $80, but does jump to over $100 for a few select shows. Prices are also on the rise, and for most tour dates are up over 10% in the last seven days, with some going up as much as 40%.
However, there are still deals to be had, particularly for the first of her two shows at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Prices for the first night start at just $29/seat. The next night, which is also the finale of the US Leg of the tour, start at $123. If you are a high roller, the must see show of this tour is definitely going to be at Mandalay Bay in Vegas. Tickets for her Vegas show are some of the most expensive on the tour with prices starting around $275, so you’ll have to dig a little deeper into your pockets for that one but it is surely a performance that won’t disappoint.
