Wondering where Rihanna’s 777 Tour might touch down when it kicks off on Wednesday? Well, wonder no more. The Unapologetic singer has unveiled the details of her globetrotting promotional tour, and MTV News will be there to capture every moment.
MTV will be aboard her Boeing 777 twinjet to bring you all the updates from the weeklong trek beginning in Mexico City. The tour will then make its way around the world with stops planned for Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London and finally New York on November 20, one day after her Unapologetic album drops.
The promotional tour is named for the fact that she will be playing seven shows in seven days in seven different countries. And she’s inviting us, along with 150 journalists and fans, along for what she assures will be an “adventure.”
“We are turning this jumbo jet into our tour bus,” Rihanna said in a statement according to The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re practically living on this thing for a week: sleeping, partying, all together. Me, my fans, the press…it’s going to be a wild ride. I wanted it to be a rock and roll adventure, and I think when it’s over it will be the coolest thing I’ve ever done.”
Rihanna is set to drop her much-anticipated seventh studio album, Unapologetic, on November 19. And when MTV News caught up with the singer ahead of the album’s release, she shared how its lead single, “Diamonds,” reflects the personal nature of the release.
“It was a song that meant something, and that’s the whole theme throughout the album,” she said. “I think a lot of people are afraid of being happy because of what others might think of it. … They’re afraid to embrace that and embrace themselves and love themselves and do what they love and do what makes them happy.”
