INTERNATIONAL MUSIC SUPERSTAR RIHANNA TAKES OFF
WITH WORLD PREMIERE OF CONCERT DOCUMENTARY “RIHANNA 777,”
MONDAY, MAY 6 ON FOX
Global superstar Rihanna soars in the exclusive world premiere of concert documentary RIHANNA 777, airing Monday, May 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The film gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Rihanna’s unprecedented globetrotting concert tour that hit seven countries in seven days with seven shows to promote her seventh album.
Filling a 777 jet with 256 die-hard fans and international journalists, Rihanna began a thrilling nonstop performance tour on November 14, 2012, traveling to Mexico City, Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London and New York City to promote her album, “Unapologetic.” The album debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200, with her single, “Diamonds,” reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 the day after the 777 tour ended.
The entire tour was documented by a film crew, offering fans stellar performances of her greatest hits in glamorous locales. The film also provides an inside look at the singer’s ambitious and often turbulent tour, from the sound of popping champagne corks on the plane, to the backstage chaos, to the singer’s special worldwide appearances.
The Barbados-born Grammy Award-winning singer has already earned the coveted title of international superstar. From her breakthrough multi-platinum album, “A Girl Like Me,” to her ubiquitous global smash, “Umbrella,” in just a few short years, Rihanna helped redefine the path of popular music for a new generation. Rihanna’s music has earned her countless awards and accolades, including seven Grammy Award wins, five American Music Awards, 18 Billboard Music Awards and three MTV Video Music Awards. “Unapologetic” is Rihanna’s seventh studio album and “Diamonds” marks her twelfth Hot 100 No. 1 hit.
RIHANNA 777 is a Fenty Films production in conjunction with Love Live and Gravité Crea
