Rihanna rocked Wembley Arena with a raunchy show for her ANTi World Tour but arrived late and gave a subdued performance, following the dramatic tears fans saw on stage in Dublin earlier in the week
Rihanna's 'ANTi World Tour' landed in London's Wembley Arena on Friday night (24.06.16).
The Bajan star took to the stage at the world famous stadium during the European leg of her circuit, but tested fans' patience - as she had done in Dublin just a few nights before - by arriving 30 minutes late.
Addressing the crowd, she said: "Hey London! Nice to see you again. Hope you enjoy the concert."
The 28-year-old singer kicked off the show with a sincere rendition of her 2013 pining ballad 'Stay' and followed it up with her Eminem collaboration 'Love The Way You Lie'.
All eyes were on Rihanna and the crowd wondered if the song would draw a tear or two from the star, after she wept throughout the recital when she performed it in Ireland's capital on Tuesday (21.06.16).
But Rihanna kept her cool and seemingly left her emotions at home as she stormed through high temp tracks off her latest record like 'Woo', 'Sex With Me' and 'Pour It U' and hardly stopped for breath.
The crowd were delighted when she arrived at 'Bitch Better Have My Money' and though she steered clear of many of the hits that cemented her fame, when the singer belted out 'Umbrella', spirits in the stadium were lifted and Rihanna proved her pop goddess status.
As expected, the siren slipped into a number of skimpy outfits, which complimented her raunchy and energetic dance moves and made sure she oozed sex appeal throughout.
Despite the arena not being full to capacity, when Rihanna sang her classic track 'We Found Love' - performed in a mash-up with Calvin Harris' 'How Deep Is Your Love' - the place literally shook from the stomps of thrilled fans.
Rihanna rarely spoke to the crowd and disappeared backstage for ten minutes, but delivered what she'd promised and ended on a string of hits that included 'Diamonds', 'FourFiveSeconds,' and 'Kiss It Better'.
The singer was supported at Wembley Arena by Big Sean.
