AceShowbiz - It looks like Rihanna is hitting the road soon. If a new report is to be believed, the "Umbrella" hitmaker will announce her 2023 global tour after headlining this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Revealing the news was The Sun. A source told the outlet, "She has her North American dates ready to announce for 2023 after the Super Bowl and it will be a matter of time before European dates are announced for 2024."
"Her plan is to set up mini residencies in major cities rather than visit multiple places," the source added. "She wants her next global outing to be swift and easy as she plans to refocus on Fenty Beauty and Savage X Fenty after her brief return to music."
As for now, Rihanna is working hard to prepare her Super Bowl performance. "Rihanna's Super Bowl halftime performance will be one of the best of all time," the informant explained. "She's been working overtime on every element of the show. The list of songs that made the cut are pretty comprehensive and touch on every era of Rihanna including the new one she's about to embark on."
Rihanna, who hasn't been on tour since 2016, confirmed she's the headliner for the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show on September 25, 2022. At that time, she unleashed a photo of herself holding an NFL-branded football on Instagram.
The NFL also confirmed the news by retweeting a post by Roc Nation that featured the same photo which RiRi has shared. "Let's GO," the label and management company captioned the post.
"We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show stage," Seth Dudowsky, NFL head of music, said in a statement. "Rihanna is a once-in-a-generation artist who has been a cultural force throughout her career. We look forward to collaborating with Rihanna, Roc Nation and Apple Music to bring fans another historic Halftime Show performance."
