Rihanna has started rehearsals for her brand new 'Diamonds' world tour and says she is "hyped" up to take her new album 'Unapologetic' around the globe.
The 'We Found Love' star will begin her latest world tour this March, fresh from success with new singles like 'Diamonds' and 'Stay', and shared a picture of herself backstage starting to run through the show.
"Diamonds World Tour. It's approaching so quickly and I'm hype az s**t!" Rihanna tweeted yesterday (23rd January). "DIAMONDS WORLD TOUR #rehearsal."
In between rehearsals for the tour Rihanna was also spotted heading for a late night recording studio session last week where she was joined by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, sparking fresh rumours of a collaboration between the pair.
Rihanna's 'Diamonds' world tour will see the Bajan star travel across North America before arriving in Europe for a series of dates in May.
