Rihanna will take to the skies — Unapologetically so — on the just-announced “777 Tour,” which will see her play seven shows in seven days in seven different countries.
The (literally) globe-spanning trek kicks off on November 14, as Rih Rih boards a Boeing 777 twinjet, along with an international press corps of over 150 journalists (we suspect they’ll be riding in coach) and a group of fans from the Rihanna Navy. So far, the only announced date on the tour will take place in the U.K. For more information on the tour, check out Rihanna’s official site.
It all leads up to the release of her new Unapologetic album — available in a variety of formats, including a $250 “executive platinum” edition, which includes remixes, a “handwritten personal note,” a T-shirt, a custom-made View Master and a host of other sundries — on November 19. Following her performance at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, Rihanna announced the schedule for her 2013 Diamonds World Tour, which kicks off on March 8 in Buffalo, New York.
“Diamonds,” the first single off Unapologetic, also just made the leap to #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, her 23rd top 10 hit. She’ll also promote the album by making her fourth appearance as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,” set for November 10.
