Rihanna to play MTS Centre next spring

  • Print

Rihanna is going to shine at the MTS Centre next year.

The Grammy-winning pop star will bring her Diamonds World Tour to Winnipeg on March 25, 2013 it was announced Friday. Tickets for the show go on sale Sept. 14 for $43.50 to $160.75 at Ticketmaster.

The 24-year-old Barbadian attracted 12,000 to the MTS Centre when she brought her Loud tour to town last year in support of her album of the same name. Since then she has released Talk That Talk and is currently working on her seventh album.

Her singles include Umbrella, Only Girl (In the World), Rude Boy and We Found Love, which won video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards Thursday night.

Moments after her big win, Rihanna hugged, then briefly kissed ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

The sometimes turbulent relationship between the two turned sweet for a brief interlude during a commercial break after the pop star won video of the year.

MTV showed the grainy footage shot from a distance on its website Friday. As Rihanna walks off stage, she smiles and reaches out to embrace Brown. She gives him a quick kiss, then tussles his newly bleached blond hair as she exits.

The two split in 2009 after Brown attacked her, leaving her bruised and battered. She recently told Oprah Winfrey she still has feelings for Brown, though the two are not involved.
