A day after a provocative opening performance and a win for Video of the Year at the MTV Video Music Awards, promoters announced that pop superstar Rihanna is coming to Tampa.
The singer will kick off her 27-city Rihanna Diamonds World Tour in March, which includes an April 19 stop at the Forum. Tickets go on sale Sept. 21 and will range from $36.75 to $122.25.
The announcement adds to an already star-studded spring concert schedule at the Forum. On Wednesday, Lady Gaga announced her Born Like This Ball tour will stop there on March 13.
Rihanna's LOUD Tour was the seventh highest-grossing tour of 2011, but skipped over Tampa, and played just a single Florida date at the BankAtlantic Center in Fort Lauderdale. The Diamonds tour will also bring Rihanna back to BankAtlantic on April 20.
