Rihanna with special guest Calvin Harris

After the smash hit success of her 'Rated R' arena tour earlier this year, we were thrilled to announce the return of global Megastar Rihanna to the Metro Radio Arena on Sunday 16th October 2011. Now due to overwhelming demand we are delighted that Rihanna has confirmed an additional Newcastle performance as part of her brand new 'Loud' Tour on Sunday 27th November 2011.

This will be the first chance UK audiences will get to see her performing her brand new mega-hit singles 'Only Girl (In The World)' and 'What's My Name' from her new album 'Loud'

With 'Only Girl (In The World)' recently hitting the #1 spot, the stage was set perfectly for the release of LOUD, Rihanna's fifth album, which debuted into the top of the charts. Rihanna's second single, 'What's My Name' featuring Drake, was another huge success - it's made Rihanna's 9th #1 on the Hot 100 and widens her dominance of the charts.

Nominated for 4 Awards at this 2011's Grammy Awards, Rihanna has earned a reputation of being one of the most exhilarating and talented performers in the world. Her 'Rated R' tour earlier this year, sold out multiple arenas across the country and stunned audiences all over the globe with an unrivalled production. With an unbelievable arson of hits such as 'Only (girl In The World)', 'Umbrella', 'Disturbia', 'Shut Up and Drive' and a brand new, even more flamboyant stage show, Rihanna's 'Loud' Tour is set to be her biggest and best yet.

Today it has been announced that Calvin Harris will appear as Special Guest on Rihanna’s record breaking ‘Loud’ tour.

Calvin Harris has had a crazy few years with seven Top 10 singles in his career, including two #1 singles with ‘I’m Not Alone’ and ‘Dance Wiv Me’ (with Dizzee Rascal) and over 1.5 million tracks and 500,000 albums sold in the UK.

Following the radio and chart smash hit ‘Bounce’ feat. Kelis released in June, Calvin Harris will release his new single ‘Feel So Close’ on 21st August. Since his last album, Calvin has been touring the world DJ’ing everywhere from Las Vegas to Ibiza to Australia. Calvin DJ’d to a packed tent of 10,000 people when he headlined the King Tuts Wah Wah stage at T in the Park earlier this month, playing one of the best shows of his career to date.

Calvin will perform at festivals across the UK this summer along with DJ residencies across the globe in Las Vegas and Ibiza before joining Rihanna, as special guest on her ‘Loud’ tour.

Rihanna says - "Calvin is the perfect fit for the Loud tour. He is going to bring something unique and fun for the fans." 

Under 14's MUST be accompanied by an adult.
