Rihanna performing " Shut Up and Drive " in Minneapolis The show began with a short video introduction featuring Rihanna sitting on a throne wearing a black coat and a short red wig. The middle screen splits revealing Rihanna inside a purple ball wearing an electric blue dress.
She begins singing " Only Girl In the World " surrounded by her dancers all wearing bright neon costumes. The next song, " Disturbia ", follows with Rihanna taking off the blue dress and dancing around in a colorful daisy duke, leading into " Shut Up and Drive " where a car covered in graffiti is present in the middle of the stage. The first segment ends with " Man Down " where Rihanna gets inside the car and descends beneath the stage.
The first video interlude titled "Le Sex Shoppe" features Rihanna dressed in white dress and a suit smoking a cigar while the words "sex" and "temptation" are whispered throughout the video. The second segment begins with a cover of Prince 's " Darling Nikki " where Rihanna, dressed in a suit and holding a cane, rubs against her female dancers.
A brief guitar solo follows performed by Nuno Bettencourt. Rihanna returns to the stage atop a pink tank shooting puffs of smoke, with her and her dancers dressed in military gear, to perform " Raining Men ".

After climbing out the tank, Rihanna then performs " Hard " dancing around the stage while her dancers wield pink rifles. A mashup of "Breakin' Dishes" and Sheila E. The second video interlude features Rihanna wearing a red dress while waving sheets of chiffon in the air and ends with the spoken line: I guess it is one of his fantasies to have a captive audience of 14, people watch him get off by demeaning random young women on stage. Maybe he should have been replaced with another artist after pleading guilty to attempted grand larceny a few months ago.
I miss the awesome Calvin Harris, who opened for the last Rihanna concert. That was an incredible show — one I was sure could never be topped — and I knew I would see her again once she announced the next tour. I was also lucky enough to meet Rihanna backstage after that show, which was a great experience.
Since, she has released Unapologetic, which is another top album for the Barbadian pop singer.
Rihanna’s “Diamonds World Tour” at HP Pavilion | San Jose, California | 4/6/ (Concert Review)
There are some truly amazing new songs on this album, which I will get to a little later. I think with this tour, she has some more still and silent moments to really dig into the vocals of the songs, and that she did. While she is young, she has incredible endurance and energy, and still manages to hit all her notes and sound truly angelic with her unique voice, tones, and delivery. In my opinion, no vocalist in pop music today can really begin to match her ability to create stellar vocals in a live show.
The production overall was very slick in a good way and impressive, with many monitors moving about behind and above the stage for atmosphere was well as projecting real-time and close-up video of Rihanna performing for those further back in the massive sports arena. In addition to the videos and dancing, there were also pyrotechnics, which were impressive, and at least from my distance to the stage, you could literally feel the heat as plumes of flame burst from the stage up into the air.
As per usual, Rihanna had many talented dancers joining her on stage, as well her awesome guitarist Nuno Bettencourt and other musicians.
