7 cities, 7 countries, 7 shows. It’s a lucky strike for anyone who gets their hands on tickets to one of these events.
‘’Yo Toronto, I’m at the Danforth tonight. Will you?” – is all RiRi tweeted to let us know the secret location of her last minute concert. Die-hard fans were quick to line up at the Danforth Music Hall in hopes of snagging access to the event.
Luckily, thanks to an invite from our pals at HTC (the tour’s prime sponsor), Dinosaurus Rex got a seat at the intimate performance. Let’s just say we were ecstatic to be in attendance – the Caribbean Queen never touched North American soil during her Talk That Talk tour, so we definitely weren’t going to miss this.
Toronto waited in anticipation as two DJs (Congorock and DJ Reflex) opened for her, keeping the momentum steady. By the time she was on, no holds barred! Rihanna had the crowd, and the crowd was ready for her. She stuck mostly to the hits so no complaints from us. The party went on for over 20 songs which ended with ‘We Found Love’.
Special thanks to HTC for sponsoring this tour and giving fans a rare, intimate glimpse into the world that is RiRi!
If any Toronto fans missed out on this show – have no fear! She’ll be returning to the big smoke for two back-to-back performances on March 18 & 19 at the Air Canada Centre.
See you there — Rihanna Navy!

P.S. some of you probably know I’m a huge camera phone buff. I got a hold of the brand new HTC 8X specifically to cover this event – it has a sweet camera phone, so I mixed in a couple of the photos I took with it. I’ll do a detailed review on the phone at a later date. Enjoy!
