*In addition to adding 10 more dates to her Loud tour, pop star Rihanna has also invited “F— You” singer Cee Lo Green to join her for the outing, which is scheduled to begin on June 4 in Baltimore.
With the 10 additional dates announced on Wednesday (February 16), the North American Loud tour is now up to 17 shows, with promoter Live Nation promising that more stops could be added in the future, reports MTV. The added dates include stops in Montreal, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Houston, Dallas, Albuquerque and Boston.
“I’m a huge fan of Cee Lo since his days with Goodie Mob and with Gnarls Barkley. He’s a musical genius, continually reinventing himself, and I’m thrilled to have him join me on tour,” said Rihanna in a statement announcing the new dates.
“I want to thank Rihanna for inviting me on our version of ’50 First Dates,’ only difference is she’s unforgettable fine,” Cee Lo added in the statement. “Don’t tell her I have a crush on her, don’t wanna mess everything up. But honestly it’s an honor and a blessing to be able to go out with a talent such as hers and I look forward to doing my part to make the tour unforgettable for the fans that come out and see us.”
