Following Rihanna's whirlwind performance in Toronto last night on the second stop of her 777 tour, Live Nation Global Touring has announced the addition of second performances in both Toronto and Montreal on the RIHANNA DIAMONDS WORLD TOUR. The first dates for Toronto and Montreal, which went on-sale mid-September, are now both SOLD OUT. This adds to an itinerary which already includes more than 28 cities across North America, with more dates to be announced. It was announced last week that very special guest A$AP Rocky will be accompanying Rihanna on the tour as support.

Tickets for the second Toronto and Montreal shows go on-sale Friday, November 23rd at 10AM at www.LiveNation.com and Evenko.ca.

The announcement breaks in the midst of her "777" tour, wherein a group of die-hard fans from the Rihanna Navy fan club and a traveling international press corps of over 150 journalists representing 82 countries will be taken aboard a chartered Boeing 777 twinjet to 7 shows in 7 days in 7 countries.

Rihanna is currently dominating global charts with "Diamonds," the fastest-rising single of her career to date, and the first single from UNAPOLOGETIC, her upcoming 7th studio album for Island Def Jam in just seven years - arriving in stores worldwide on Monday, November 19th. UNAPOLOGETIC is also available pre-order at iTunes: http://smarturl.it/UnapologeticDlx
