Last night at the Staples Center, pulled out all the stops for the public sold out, keeping it in place for the whole two hours. With a giant video screen behind her screen divided horizontally into two and four circular screens hanging from the ceiling, the set came to life for each and every one of his hits. Rihanna ruled every inch of that stage, no problem belting out every hook and dance with the arrogance and seductive style that are his signature.
Rihanna kicked everything off with the pedal propulsion "Only Girl in the World" Loud. On a devilishly danceable rhythm, which slipped smoothly through the verse just before the music was broken and his resonant voice fills the Staples Center floor to ceiling. Immediately, all the participants began to dance and sing along, and did not quit for the duration of the show.
"Disturbia" practically set the stage ablaze with incendiary movements of Rihanna and her dancers and chorus undeniable. A live guitar solo added a spinning rock 'n' roll to the edge "Shut Up and Drive" just before a sample of accident and the sirens shut bombastic tone. Dressed in a bright bikini, neon pink boots and her hair in the air blood red, Rihanna was the vision of a futuristic reggae goddess "Man Down", where virtually all tribal drums carried in the Caribbean.
