Rihanna Announced 2013 concert, Diamonds World tour, playlist

For a singer who only began recording at the age of sixteen, Rihanna has undeniably gone through many changes, both melodically and appearance wise. She has a unique voice, which is what sets her apart from the other artists. It is refreshing to hear her music and not have to guess who it might be. She and her Management have ability for writing and picking superb songs that fit her voice and are wonderful for radio, parties and club listening. Her songs also cross style, race and age boundaries like few other singers can. Her appeal is global and the sales prove it.

Rihanna recently revealed her forthcoming North American, “Diamonds World Tour” covering 27 cities. The tour will kick off on March 08, 2013 at First Niagara Center in Buffalo, NY and will wrap up on May 4 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The tour setlist will cover both new and old songs.
