RiRi Review x ANTI World Tour x LA 5.3.16

Hey yinzzz,

I must say that as I’m writing this and yes I had a great time at her show on Tuesday, I’m a little upset because Drake appeared at her Wednesday show.  Both shows in LA.  Both shows at The Forum.  Why Universe why.  It’s okay – moving on.

All feelings aside, Rihanna put on an AMAZING show.  I have never been to one of her tours and have never really seen her perform more than one or two songs other than at awards shows, so this was a dang treat.  From lights to backup dancers (hello, they were amazing) to stage setup to RiRi’s dancing and overall stage presence, she did not disappoint.


But before we lead into her set, we absolutely cannot forget about Mr. Travis Scott.  I have actually never seen him perform EVER, so I was probably more excited at the start to see him.

His set list included:

  • A-Team
  • Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1 (TLOP)
  • 90210
  • Pray 4 Love (which he dedicated to Tupac’s mom who passed away on 5/3)
  • Bake Sale
  • Wonderful Life
  • Whole Lotta Lovin’
  • Antidote*

*As if this song isn’t popular and lit enough, he took things to the next level.  Literally.  Travis exited the stage and freaking scaled The Forum stairs to THE NOSEBLEEDS (where I was sitting) but alas to the opposite side.  #thxUniverse  He then handed the microphone to a fan who proceeded to rap the remainder of the song.  You’ll see in my Snap compilation below that Travis was quite impressed.  So dope.  Trav lives for the fans for real.  Example:  fans in the front row were rolling up trying to smoke, security threatened to kick them out, but Travis stood up for them and told security to not kick them out because this is the ANTI Tour.  More specifically, “This is the ANTI World Tour, so we might be anti security.” HA.  But all in all, great performance by him.  I really hope he goes on a solo tour.  I’ll be buying tickets for sure.

Back to RiRi.

I think she has become the Queen of Cool.  Honest even.  Everything she did.  From her entrance to the stage to walking back and forth to the microphone… EVERYTHING WAS COOL.  She is also one for the fans, and that’s another reason why I like her so much.  And she can sing!  Many think she can’t, but the girl can hold a note.  Listen to ‘Love on the Brain’ off of ANTI, and your mind will be blown.


Her setlist included:

  • Stay
  • Love the Way You Lie
  • Woo
  • Sex With Me
  • Birthday
  • Pour It Up
  • Numb
  • Bitch Better Have My Money
  • Consideration
  • Live Your Life
  • Run This Town
  • All of the Lights
  • Desperado
  • Man Down
  • Rude Boy
  • Work
  • Take Care
  • We Found Love
  • Where Have You Been
  • Needed Me
  • Same Ol’ Mistakes
  • Diamonds
  • She then took the time to thank every helping hand involved with the show – much appreciated.
  • FourFiveSeconds
  • Love on the Brain
  • Kiss It Better

I had high expectations for a Rihanna concert, and she delivered.  No, she didn’t deliver, she SERVED.  It’s safe to say I will be attending more RiRi tours in the future.
