Rihanna has spoken out about rumours that she’s planning to head back on tour in the near future.

Speculation about when fans will next be able to see Rihanna live have been rife ever since… well, to be honest, since the Anti tour came to an end in 2016.

However, things escalated earlier this year, after the Fenty Beauty founder dipped her toe back into the music industry, with her contributions to the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack and headlining performance at the 2023 Super Bowl Half-Time.

Back in October, Entertainment Tonight claimed Rihanna had inked a deal with the tour promoters Live Nation to head back out on the road next year, although it sounds like we could well be in for a longer wait than that.

Speaking to ET, Rih maintained it was “always” the plan to go back on tour at some point, but added: “I want to do a tour when there’s new music, right?”

*stares in it’s almost been eight years since the last Rihanna album*

“My last tour was a long time ago,” Rihanna said. “I feel like it’s only fair that my fans get what they’ve been waiting on, which is new music. And after that, let’s just, like, blow everything up!”

In fairness to Rihanna, she hasn’t exactly been sitting with her feet up in the eight years since her last album.

Having made a huge name for herself within the beauty industry, and racking up a number of eclectic acting roles, she and her partner A$AP Rocky have also become parents to two sons, RZA and Riot, in the last two years.
