R&B superstar Rihanna has spent much of the past six months on the road, taking her Loud tour to arenas throughout Europe and North and South America. Her fourth concert tour (supporting her blockbuster album of the same name) is her biggest yet, with dates in 20 countries, including a first-time hometown stop in Barbados. During the dizzying two-hour stage spectacle, the singer powers through 24 continuous hits, amid a blizzard of glitter and neon, backed by a band led by the flashy guitar stylings of Nuno Bettencourt. “We''re creating an incredible ride with this tour,” Rihanna has said. “I know my fans are ready to get loud!”
