With the expected Black Friday release of her anticipated 2015 album Anti, R&B artist Rihanna has announced a globe-trotting 2016 world tour. She stops in New Orleans at the Smoothe King Center on Tuesday, March 8, among 70 international dates through August. Travis Scott will open on all North American dates.
