Rihanna To Kick Off North American Loud Tour In June

Singer to open trek in Baltimore; tickets go on sale Valentine's Day.

[artist id="1940303"]Rihanna[/artist] is ready to make some noise stateside this summer.

The Barbadian songstress announced on Wednesday (February 6) that she’ll bring her Loud Tour to North America in June. The superstar will kick off the trek in Baltimore and then head to Toronto; Los Angeles; Oakland, California; New York; New Jersey; and Philadelphia. Tickets go on sale for the “Only Girl (In the World)” singer’s U.S. and Canadian dates on February 14; additional dates will be announced later.

For those who saw the Loud diva rip the stage last year on her worldwide Last Girl on Earth Tour , the upcoming trek is slated to feature brand new costumes and set design, and the megastar has promised American members of the Rihanna Navy that she’s ready to get rowdy.

“We’re creating an incredible ride with this tour. I’m excited to get out on the road and share my new music from this album,” Rihanna said in a statement. “We are going to have an amazing time and I know my fans are ready to get LOUD!”

The poptress will rock some Down Under dates in Australia at the end of the month but fans unwilling to make the long flight can catch Rihanna onstage before her summer dates kick off. The fashion-forward singer is set to perform at the Grammys on Sunday , where she’s also up for four awards: Record Of the Year, Best Rap/ Sung Collaboration and Best Short Form Music Video for Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” and Best Dance Recording for “Only Girl (In the World).”
