CURRENTLY enjoying her eighth week at the top of the singles chart with Umbrella and following the success of her No.1 album Good Girl Gone Bad, Rihanna has announced a major UK arena tour.

This will be Rihanna’s first headline tour and follows her dates with the Pussycat Dolls last winter and her recent performance at Live Earth (Tokyo).

The singer has announced a total of 10 dates in December, including a night at London’s Wembley Arena.

The dates are (all December)...

6 – Manchester MEN
7 – Sheffield Arena
8 – Nottingham Arena
10 – Birmingham NEC

Less than two years ago Bajan beauty Rihanna burst onto the music scene when Pon De Replay stormed the British charts reaching No.2. It was followed by the equally successful S.O.S..

But the infectious Umbrella, featuring Jay-Z, has surpassed all of her previous achievements and taken the country by storm giving Rihanna her first UK #1.

Umbrella was released digitally only on May 14 and became the fastest selling download of the year as it went on to become only the third single ever to reach the top of the charts on downloads alone.
