Although Rihanna hasn’t revealed the details surrounding her impending LP Anti , the singer has already plotted a long world tour in support of her new album. The Anti World Tour kicks off February 26th at San Diego, California’s Viejas Arena and will spend three months circling North America before the first leg closes out May 7th at Oakland’s Oracle Arena. The following month, Rihanna will embark on a two-month trek through Europe. Rihanna Cover Artist on How He Crafted ‘Anti’ Imagery Travis Scott will serve as Rihanna’s opening act throughout the North American leg, while the Weeknd and Big Sean will accompany her on the European tour. Anti World Tour tickets go on sale to American Express card members and Tidal subscribers on November 30th, with a general on-sale date for all shows scheduled for December 3rd. Anti is the culmination of a long recording process for Rihanna; after releasing four albums in four years between 2009 and 2012, it’s been three years since Unapologetic arrived in November 2012. Rihanna hasn’t been completely dormant: In the past year, she’s released three singles – “FourFiveSeconds,” “Bitch Better Have My Money,” and “American Oxygen” – but it’s unclear whether those tracks will appear on the Kanye West-executive produced LP. “To me it’s never done until it’s done. Until the final moment,” Rihanna told NME in a September interview. “I have so many songs I love – and they’re so different – that it’s hard to actually put them all on the same album.” The singer also revealed she had worked with Charli XCX on some songs that could potentially make the final tracklist.
