The Weeknd Rumored to Open For Rihanna at Barclays Center March 30

(UPDATE 2/3/16)It's the jaunt that keeps on growing, and Rihanna's "Anti" World Tour isn't done just yet. Rumors are circulating that rising hip-hop star The Weeknd will open for the "Work" singer at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on March 30, and his presence will undoubtedly accelerate the purchase of tickets over the next several days.

It appears that the secondary market has already taken notice, too, as Rihanna tickets to both Barclays Center gigs in March are among her most expensive shows of tour. She'll kick things off in Kings County on March 27, where tickets average $265.55 and the cheapest is listed for $77. Expect to pay even higher for the joint date with The Weeknd three days later. March 30 Rihanna tickets are currently averaging $357.30 on the resale market, easily making it her top-priced show in North America this year. Looking just to get in the venue? The cheapest ticket starts from $89.
