Renowned artist’s definitely go the extra mile to build anticipation for long awaited projects. From Beyonce dropping an album merely out of thin air to Adele completely dropping off the face of the earth and going A-wall from industry to turn around and do 360 in dropping a single that completely changed the game… And now Rihanna, who keeps us holding on by a thread releasing just enough to keep us interested but refuses to set an album release date… The out-of-the-box tactics are real these days!

How does one put a world tour before an album release date? We don’t know how or why but Rihanna just did, and maybe she is sticking true to her rebel side being unapologetic in her strategic moves.  The ANTI-world tour goes to pre-sale on Dec. 3rd with the actual tour kicking into drive on Feb. 26, 2016. The infamous tour will start in California as Rihanna takes Travi$ Scott along for the ride in the states only to link up with The Weeknd and Big Sean in Europe.
