Rihanna. Six time Grammy award winner, more than $37 million albums sold and the top selling digital artist of all time.

The 25 year old beauty from Barbados has been preparing for her Diamonds World tour for months which will make 27 stops across North America, Buffalo the first on March 8th.

Nineteen thousand fans from Rochester, Canada and all over western New York scooped up their tickets for Friday night's sold out concert.
