Rihanna Kicks Off Her “Anti” Tour


After some numerous delays, Rihanna finally kicked off her 71-date Anti tour two nights ago in Jacksonville, Florida. According to a report from the Florida Times-Union the show was unbelieveable and featured a

“giant shower curtain dripping 10-foot chunks of foam behind the stage,”

…as well as a…

“flying bridge that carried the singer from one end of Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena to the other,” and “the most acrobatic corps of dancers this side of the Disney Animal Cirque de Soleil.”

From the footage posted on Twitter and social media alike, the concert was absolutely off the hook. The setlist was diverse, opening with “Stay” and the “Work” singer performed quite a few throwbacks, including hits like “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “Umbrella,” and closing with “Kiss it Better.” She also performed a number of feature tracks like Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” Kanye West’s “All of the Lights,” and Drake’s “Take Care.”

Rihanna’s opener Travi$ Scott seemed to have had a bad time in front of the crowd and according to the report,

“He said his equipment was ‘stuck in weather two hours north of here’ and he played on a nearly bare stage. His lighting was terrible – there was never a spotlight on him and you simply couldn’t see the guy.”
