The 'Diamonds' singer will play a second date at the Manchester Arena on 13th June in 2013.
Rihanna has added a second Manchester date to the UK leg of her 2013 'Diamonds' world tour due to unprecedented demand for tickets.
The 'We Found Love' star will now play an additional date at the Manchester Arena on 13th June next year, when she arrives in the UK in early June to bring her new world tour to fans across the country.
Rihanna arrives in the UK in Cardiff on 10th June for the first night of the tour at the city's Millennium Stadium, and will go on to perform across Manchester, London and Birmingham before wrapping the visit with a performance at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland on 20th June.
The 'Where Have You Been' singer performed a one-off concert at the Forum in Kentish town at the start of this week (19th November) as part of her '777' tour in support of new album 'Unapologetic', which wrapped with a final performance in New York City last night (20th November).
Rihanna's stay in London also saw her switching on the Christmas lights at Westfield Stratford on Monday evening, where she also performed her recent hit single 'Diamonds'.
