Metro joins Rihanna on her 7-7-7 tour

Rihanna will perform seven shows, in seven cities, in seven days to celebrate the release of her seventh studio album, "Unapologetic."

Today, Rihanna’s seven day tour starts – and Metro Sweden’s reporter Katarina Matsson is joining her all the way.

“It will be the coolest thing I’ve ever done,” Rihanna says.

Metro’s reporter is part of a very exclusive crowd of a few reporters and fans from all over the world that will board Rihanna’s private plane in LA.
“I’m so excited about the 777-tour. We will transform this jumbo jet into a tour bus. We will practically live in it for a week: sleeping, partying, all together. Me, my fans, the press…It is going to be a wild ride,” Rihanna says.

For seven days Metro will take you behind the scenes– in as many cities. First stop is Mexico City and on Friday she performs in Stockholm. Chris Brown will also be in Stockholm this weekend—rumor has it they are dating again, and Brown sings on one of the tracks of Rihanna’s new album.

Rihanna is ready for the pace.

“I wanted this to become a rock’n roll-adventure, and when it is all over I believe it will be the coolest thing I’ve ever done,” she says.
