Following Rihanna’s tour kick-off in Mexico City, the sultry singer pressed on with the celebration of her seventh album, Unapologetic, getting closer to knocking out seven performances in seven countries in seven days.
E! News, along with 200 other journalists, have been along for the ride with the “Diamonds” crooner on her whirlwind world tour, this time accompanying the star to her concert in Sweden.
When we arrived in Stockholm at 3:40 p.m., it was already dark outside! Most people had slept on the plane from Toronto, so it felt like dawn instead of dusk.
Rihanna was scheduled to begin at 9 p.m., but she didn’t take the stage until 11:40 p.m.—over two and a half hours late.
“I know I’m a little late so I first want to apologize for all the inconvenience,” Rihanna told the crowd. “I want to thank you for being the shit and so patient with me and being still this excited.”
“I can’t believe I’m back here this quickly. I must apologize. You guys make me feel so special,” Rihanna continued, before singing “Only Girl.”
