RIHANNA! The 20 year old multi-platinum, MTV and Grammy Award winning artist who’s taken the world by storm will descend on New Zealand this October for the first time to continue her quest for world domination!
Burning holes in the dance floor with "Pon De Replay", Rihanna was catapulted to the world’s attention in 2005. Following soon after were the back-to-back hits “SOS (Rescue Me)" and “Unfaithful”, lifted from her 2006 number 1, platinum sophomore album, “A Girl Like Me”.
Taken under the considerable wing of R&B master Jay-Z, his protégé has become without doubt one of the hottest females in popular music today.
Rihanna’s third album “Good Girl Gone Bad” released last year – and re-released and “Reloaded” one year on - the multi-platinum, worldwide smash includes mega-hits “Umbrella” featuring Jay-Z, “Shut Up and Drive”, “Hate That I Love You” featuring Ne-Yo, “Take A Bow”, “Don’t Stop The Music”, and the latest “Disturbia”, currently holding No: 1 on the Singles chart.
Co-headlining with Rihanna is another of the music world’s global superstars – CHRIS BROWN!
In 2006, Chris Brown visited New Zealand for a promotional tour, his private performance leaving none in doubt he was a star on the rise.
Coming to notice with his self-titled debut album featuring the international hit “Run It”, Brown followed up with his second major release “Exclusive”. This album featuring collaborations with Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am and fellow platinum artist T-Pain, produced three huge hit singles - “Wall To Wall”, double platinum “Kiss Kiss”, plus platinum top five tune “With You”.
“Exclusive – The Forever Edition” released this year, has taken Brown to the top two position of the album chart, boasting sales of double platinum, three number one singles, with “Forever” reaching platinum status.
