Rihanna's 777 Gig


Just checking in, what a busy old month it's been, but there were some ever so fabulous highlights including Alexander Du'Bel's amazing launch at Circus and Rihanna's secret invite only 777 gig.


I present the Showbiz News daily on the Breakfast Show at 103.4 Sun FM which is one of the radio stations I worked for when I lived up in the North East...  It just so happened that the radio station needed some to attend Rihanna's 777 gig in London promoting her stadium tour next year (including the Stadium of Light), so I was roped into going along.... how awful ha ha.

I had a great time catching up with some old friends - Gaynor from Metro Radio, Katie Wheeler - entertainment writer / reporter for the Sunderland Echo, and Bernice Saltzer at Sorted PR who made sure we were fed, watered and at the venue on time.  It just so happened that the star of the show who's supposedly racked up thousands of pounds in airport taxes from being late, was in the mood to keep us waiting.   Although this did give us ample time to drink a pint of wine from a plastic cup, and do some celeb spotting - we managed to spy Grimmy, Annie Mac, Union J and Henry Holland.

The warm up dj set was totally ace - a guy called @congorocks - worth looking up...
...and when Rihanna finally did get on stage, she did a lot of gyrating and a little bit of singing to a backing track of her own vocals.  The songs she did belt out were great and the tracklisting for her gig is really good.  A lot of the old favourites and a couple of new ones from 'Unapologetic' aswell.

I always thought Ri-Ri had a bit of meat on her, but she was seriously skinny.... must be all that stressing over Chris Brown....
