Despite pleasantly surprising with her ‘SNL set over the weekend, these shows will need to deliver the goods to legitimate any kind of crossover from being s studio act to a respectable live entertainer.

As many know, her ‘Talk That Talk “era” has yet to receive the live performance treatment, alas it would be a shame if her new material fell prey to the ‘mess’ that gripped at her  infamous Rock In Rio set.

Sam’s 2 Pence:

Now playing stadiums, Rih is not only throwing down the gauntlet to many of her female chart rivals, she’s also throwing it down to herself. She has six months and some change to pack-out such-sized venues – which requires that she convince more than her loyal Navy to show up and show out. The latter being what she’ll have to do during the period preceding the show if she doesn’t want to be left with egg on her model-esque face. Interestingly, her “eras” usually last six months, hence it’ll be super-interesting to see how she manages this feat.

Why? Because the model’s team’s coins may be able to buy radio play and unparalleled PR, but they can’t buy people in seats. That’s one transaction that, thankfully, works the other way around.

Be sure to keep it locked on That Grape Juice as we  update on the sales of the tour.

      Many hate on Rihanna for no Logical Reason at all,
      the hate stems from Rihanna doing good in her career
      and if yo ass is mad then go after the Fellows who
      discovered Her playing on the Beach Here in the Islands
      and talking with Her and Giving Her a chance to com to America with Her song Pon De Replay, Jay loved her
      Voice and as you all know the rest is His-To-Rih………..

    • Lax November 14, 2012

      Haters can shy talk Her till the cows come home and
      she loves every moment of it. Remember talk don’t
      pay yo bills and commenting is fun because it’s easy
      where Rihanna is concerned, to Debunk lies and slander…

  4. Hilly November 14, 2012

    I know she has a lot of fans but is she really going fill the Stade de France? Who will go to see her out of breathe, touching herself, doing something not impressive?
    If she wants to be the Black Madonna she’ll have to work on her dance moves, and vicals while she’s “dancing”. Well the Black Eyed Peas did the stadium and it was sold out so why not her.

    Rihanna’s Video Of The Year at the MTV VMA’s capped a near year-long campaign in support of her sixth studio album, ‘Talk That Talk’ (released November 21st, 2011). The album’s string of global hits spanned over a year, starting with the worldwide Number 1 smash, ‘We Found Love’ (featuring Calvin Harris). The song spent 10 weeks at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, beating Rihanna’s personal best of 7 weeks at Number 1 in 2007, for ‘Umbrella’ (featuring Jay-Z). Rihanna also broke records in 2007 in the UK when she scored the longest-running Number 1 single since 1994 with ‘Umbrella’, topping the UK chart for a 10th week and equalled Whitney Houston’s record for weeks at Number 1 of any female artist in history.

  8. let’s be real November 14, 2012

    Lets be real…let me preface this by saying that I’m a Rihanna fan! Wasn’t at first but she grew on me and I love her.let me also say that in my 20 years alive I have been to see Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey,Beyoncé (3 times)Michael Jackson,Madonna(loved that show) Erykah Badu,and a few more live and I’ve seen Rihanna live twice.I had a good time but the overall performances were not good. She may have been tired or something but I swore as much as I love her I won’t be going again because I feel like if I’m paying a grip to see you perform I deserve your A-Game.I really want to see stand outs like”we all want love “performed though..I guess I’ll wait till reviews are released because I hate being disappointed.

    • blue November 14, 2012

      her reviews are always good. and you went to see her twice so something about the experience must have been good the first time around

    Rihanna made history as ‘We Found Love’ became her 11th Number 1 hit on the Hot 100, and her 20th Top 10 hit. She collected her 20 Hot 100 Top 10 singles Faster ..

    Than any other solo artist and placed Rihanna second only to the Beatles. In the UK, ‘We Found Love’ saw Rihanna claim her 6th Number 1 single in 5 consecutive years, a record Unequalled by any other Female Solo Artist.

    No cares about Rihanna, that’s not the chart is saying, Diamonds is currently sitting at #1 on itunes, where is ice ? .

    For the haters, keep on hating all you want, Rihanna will continue to sell millions and keep on attracting thousands of people to her concerts, who believe in her talent. That’s what matters.

    I can’t say stop turning out your product each project has to has a little timespan to see how well it will do. No matter where in the world, it revolves around the economy.

  17. Tersa November 14, 2012

    Her tour tickets are dirt cheap. Some of the seats on ticket masters are going for 33 dollars. Even floor seats starting at 95 dollars, in citied like Chicago, but I think her team was smart to start selling her tickets over 6 months early, because I don’t think they want a repeat of the LGOE tour. Smart team.

    • 12 NUMBER 1S!!!!!!! WHEN WILL BEYFLOP?!!! November 14, 2012

      AND UR POINT? SHE STILL GONNA MAKE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS!! I BET YOU GOT YOUR TICKET B****!!!

  18. kim November 14, 2012

    Tickets in a period of six months and like what I witnessed her ticket prices match per performances. No wondet after touring she makes so little. That team of rihanna know she cannot sell concert tickets in short times. If you’re so lousy in an arena, imagine a stadium, more room for criticism and unsatisfied fans or children.

    • HALF AMAZIN November 14, 2012

      And how do you know how much $ she makes at the end of touring besides your own speculation??? Go ahead, I’ll wait for it…..

      Give b****** a keyboard and they all become critics. Rihanna laughs at you all the way to the bank. Thanks for making her great.

    Well not surprised she is in stadiums in the UK ……. if u notice, she is only in stadiums in the UK… that shouldn’t surprise anyone…. they love her & that is where she makes her money ….

    i noticed that she wasnt able to even ad on second dates in the US arena tour ( except NY / LA areas).

    Hopefully she works on her stage show a little more b/c even though I LOVE a lot of her songs I still am not willing to pay to see her in concert.

    She has a strong work ethic so she earned it. if CiCi had Ri’s work ethic she could at least get into 5,000 seat theaters. Congrats to Rihanna.

    • HALF AMAZIN November 14, 2012

      what a loaded “compliment”

      GTFOH

      Fill an arena now you critics want it filled twice?? You can have all the seats in RiRi’s arenas because she gives ZERO f**** what you think. Thanks for making her great though!

      • GiGi November 14, 2012

        the truth hurts… she aint selling out arenas in the US and tha t is a FACT. ….. just explainin why she isnt doing arenas in the US. She really sucks as a performer based on her TV performances.

        And that is why she cant sellout arenas here in the US

      • HALF AMAZIN November 14, 2012

        Girl please, LOUD tour in the US was arenas! You mad. How many arena’s are you selling? Oh…..*waves BYE BYE*

  23. Aynon November 14, 2012

    She’ll definitely fillTwickenham for 1 night but the millennium stadium and Stade de France will be half empty she has a huge following in Britain mainly London, hence the 10 shows at the O2 but Cardiff, Sunderland will be half empty. In the meantime GaGa and Beyonce can sell out stadiums across the world. Not just in the UK

  24. GiGi November 14, 2012

    oh my bad… looks like she is doing stadiums in France too… hope she doesnt have to move back to arena like Gaga did with one of her french shows.
