Currently enjoying an amazing 8th week at the top of the singles chart with her stunning single Umbrella and following the success of her recent no.1 album Good Girl Gone Bad, multi award winning Rihanna has announced her fist headline UK arena tour. The stunning R&B superstar will be appearing at The Metro Radio Arena on Thursday 13th December 2007. Less than two years ago the Bajan beauty burst onto the music scene when ‘Pon De Replay’ stormed the British charts reaching #2, then less than 12 months later Rihanna was at #2 again with the pop classic ‘S.O.S.’. She then followed with the stunning ballad ‘Unfaithful’ which once again frustratingly peaked at #2 but now that has all changed… The infectious ‘Umbrella’ has surpassed all of her previous achievements and taken the country by storm giving Rihanna her first UK #1. ‘Umbrella’ was released digitally only on the 14th May and became the fastest selling download of the year as it went on to become only the third single ever to reach the top of the charts on downloads alone.. For three years running she has delivered the anthem of the summer and with no.1 album ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’, 2007 is going to be Rihanna’s year. Paul Tappenden Marketing Director for the venue said “Following Rihanna’s incredible success this year, this is yet another fantastic event for the arena adding to an already phenomenal year”. With support from Ciara and BBC's Dance X winners. Tickets costing £27.50 go on sale 9am Friday 13th July 2007.
