Rihanna Adds Alabama Tour Date to LOUD Tour

June 28, 2011

LOS ANGELES, June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Rihanna has announced that she will add an additional stop to her critically acclaimed LOUD tour. The additional date will be in Birmingham, Alabama on July 11th at the Jefferson Civic Center Arena, with all proceeds going to benefit local community relief efforts from the devastating tornadoes that tore through Alabama in early 2011. Three charities will receive donations from the show, Project Team Up, Tuscaloosa Disaster Relief Fund, and the Mayor’s Disaster Relief Fund.

“Hearing about the hundreds of lives that have been lost and the communities that have been so devastated by this disaster … I wanted to figure out a way to help,” says Rihanna. “I’m hoping that bringing the LOUD tour through Alabama can provide a moment of relief and raise a lot of money for the charities we are working with.”

Tickets go on sale Thursday, June 30th at 10am EST at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.
