Rihanna 2016 ANTI WORLD TOUR Jacksonville Opening Night: She Killed It!

Rihanna 2016 ANTI WORLD TOUR Jacksonville Opening Night: She Killed It!

SHARE

After several production delays Rihanna kicked off her new Anti-World Tour in Jacksonville, FL last night and reports state that she killed it in front of the sold out crowed. With her next stop in Miami on Tues the 15th.

Fans went absolutely nuts and had much to say about the experience:

“Better than I could have expected”

“Rihanna nailed it”

“Nights like these are what I live for”

“Riri sounds absolutely amazing!”

Fans also got more than expected when a curtain dropped “10-foot chunks of foam,” a “flying bridge” that Riri walked across, and “slick” choreography. Puma was also in the mix at the concert performing about seven wardrobe changes, including dramatic robes, thigh-high boots, and a jumpsuit. At one point, she also flashed her own Manolo Blahnik collaboration at a fan. “My shoes are Manolo, boo,” Riri said. “You got good taste.” Puma’s rep goes on to say: “I could not be happier with Rihanna, the dancers, models cast and crew… everything was just great!”

The only “hitch” in the show seemed to be with Travis Scott, who opened the show for Rihanna and faced some prop and tech difficulties. Unfortunately, he was barely visible on a “nearly bare bone stage.” He reportedly blamed the issues on his equipment, which was “stuck in weather two hours north of our venue.”

There was many speculations as to whether or not the concert would even happen or would be worth a crap after production kept getting pushed back and talk of management problems. However, Rihanna has put all that talk to sleep with a show that gave fans goosebumps.

Finally Rihanna thanked her fans via Twitter for the great, wet night seen here:
