For the first time in nearly three years, Rihanna will return to Houston. The concert is part of her upcoming Anti World Tour, which hits Toyota Center on March 5, 2016.
Touring in support of her new album, Anti, the R&B/hip hop singer will go to 36 North American cities — including Austin on March 4 and Dallas on March 6 — before heading overseas to play in 24 European cities.
Travis Scott, who released his debut album Rodeo in 2015, will be the opening act on all North American dates. European crowds will get to see The Weeknd and Big Sean when RiRi comes to town.
Among other accolades, Rihanna is the most viewed artist on Vevo/YouTube with more than 7 billion views and 23 Vevo certified videos, the most of any artist. That includes nearly 60 million for the explicit "Bitch Better Have My Money," a single from Anti.
Anyone with an American Express card can participate in a pre-sale, November 30-December 2. The same opportunity is open to all members of TIDAL, so if you haven't jumped aboard the new streaming option yet, this might be just the enticement you need.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, December 3.
Rihanna's previous Houston concert took place on November 14, 2013 as a make-up date after cancelling her tour earlier in the year due to laryngitis.
