Rihanna performed in Chile for the very first time yesterday (Sep 29th), in front of 55.000 people.
Big Sean opened the show, and Rihanna took the stage shortly after, performing her Rock In Rio setlist.

In a world of phonies, Rihanna is the realest. How she manages this, we may never know.
THE FADER – As I’m writing this, there are members of the Rihanna Navy lined up on the sidewalk outside the Macy’s in downtown Brooklyn. They’re waiting for Rihanna to appear and perform at the unveiling of her seventh perfume, RiRi, on Monday. That’s in three days. They’ve been there since 6 a.m. Plenty of time to wonder what she’ll wear. What she’ll say.
I get it. I’ve waited for Rihanna too. In fact, I’m waiting for her right now. The whole deal with this cover story was that she wouldn’t grant us any facetime, or phone time, but agreed to answer five questions over email.
Thing is, I knew she could go ghost. Not just because she can, which she can. Not just because of Beyoncé’s recent Vogue September issue cover story, where Pulitzer-prize winner Margo Jefferson wrote a killer writearound with zero involvement or comment from Bey’s camp. But because I’ve been in exactly this position before—seven times, actually, if you count each leg of Rihanna’s 777 Tour in 2012.
From Mexico City to Berlin and Toronto to Stockholm, I’ve waited for Rihanna. Once, I waited on the tarmac at Charles de Gaulle airport for three hours because she wasn’t quite finished shopping for lingerie at Chantal Thomas. After which she stopped at La Perla, another very nice underwear store. This was documented on Rihanna’s Instagram, and Just Jared’s. I think she ran into Puffy at La Perla.
At the time I—along with 140 other journalists, a handful of fans, and a caravan of international contest winners—was sleep-deprived, hungry, and utterly fucked sideways from back-to-back redeye flights. The tour was the brainchild of Rihanna and her manager Jay Brown. A Boeing 777 furnished by Delta would squire a roving enclave of carefully selected individuals to visit 7 countries in 7 days for 7 Rihanna concerts and parties to commemorate her 7th studio album in as many years.
All eyes were on Rihanna last night (Sep 27th), as she was photographed leaving a steakhouse in Rio De Janeiro.
She turned heads while walking to her van in a long fishnet dress, where her friends and family was waiting. Click here for photos.
The same night Rihanna left Rio De Janeiro, and is now on her way to Chile where she’ll perform on Tuesday.
Rihanna took the stage in front of 85.000 people at the annual Rock in Rio festival in Rio De Janeiro last night.
Dressed in yellow, she surprised the fans with new versions of previous songs and an amazing energy throughout the entire concert.
Rihanna absolutely killed it and we’re so proud! Make sure to watch the full performance above as well as for free on TIDAL.
