Concert review: Rihanna

FOLLOWING on from the success of her single Umbrella last year, Barbados-born Rihanna squeezed into another tight leather outfit and brought her Good Girl Gone Bad Tour to Belfast.

The show got off to a rocky start after Rihanna kept fans waiting 45 minutes after the support act before she graced the stage.

After coming onto Britney's Gimme More she belted out her hits Pon De Replay, Unfaithful, Shut up and Drive, SOS, Break it Off and Please Don't Stop the Music although the biggest audience reaction came from Umbrella.

However, I couldn't help thinking that Rihanna was a bit out of her depth and did struggle to keep the audience entertained.

This obviously comes with practice; after all she is only 19 so not quite a seasoned performed. There was amazing choreography from the dancers and parts of the show were impressive.

Rihanna has an amazing voice which showed during her acoustic set, she just needs to work on her audience engagement during live shows. Some amazing new releases on the way to look out for.
