Rihanna to Tour Across North America With Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj
Rihanna has mapped out a North American traveling show dubbed "Last Girl on Earth" tour to support her latest studio album "Rated R". For the upcoming gig, the Barbadian songstress will take Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj as her opening acts.
The concert series will be kicked off on July 2 at White River Amphitheatre in Seattle, WA and will be wrapped on August 25 at United Center in Chicago, IL. Tickets will go on sale beginning April 9 with fan club presale starting two days earlier on date 7.
In a recent interview with AOL, Rihanna talked about what to expect from the gig. "We've never done a tour to this capacity," she said. "The production is unbelievable and the costumes, we just took it to a whole new level. Visually and sonically it's going to be a big step up from the last time. We just keep growing, and this time it is a massive production that I cannot wait for."
Beside promoting "Rated R", this tour will also be a platform for Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj to do a cross promotion for their materials. Ke$ha has released her debut album "Animal" in January, while Nicki has dropped her first single "Massive Attack" in March and is expected to release an album later this year.
