Watch Rihanna Kick Off Her Diamonds Tour in Buffalo, N.Y. [Videos]
Rihanna put on a such a show at her Diamonds tour kickoff in Buffalo, N.Y. that she gave herself laryngitis! And there's video of the spectacle so her Navy can know what to expect on their own respective tour dates.
As Rihanna is wont to do, there's a slew of sexy dancing and even sexier outfits. She kicked off the show with 'Mother Mary' under a single spotlight on her knees, wearing a black cloak. Of course, with Rih, that much clothing won't stay on long -- she went back under cloak of darkness and emerged in what essentially looked like lingerie -- a black bra, impossibly short shorts, a sheer black tunic and thigh-high black boots for 'Phresh Off the Runway.'
Before launching into 'Pour It Up,' Rih stopped to chat briefly. “I have not been on tour for a long time," she said. “A long time for me -- so, a little more than a year. I'm so excited to be in Buffalo for my kickoff concert -- it's a big deal! the Diamonds world tour. Thank you all for being here and making this possible.”
The concert was typical Rihanna: a slew of dancing, a bit less live singing, amounting to one heck of a show. You can watch the videos of her concert below, but be warned: whoever was kind enough to record these clips was clearly dancing with camera in hand!
