Rihanna kicked off her “Last Girl On Earth Tour” in Europe. Her first concert was sold out at the Sportpaleis Antwerp area in Belgium. Rihanna performed at Gelredome – Arnhem, The Netherlands on Saturday night April 17.

Rihanna’s concert was not affected by the closure of dutch air space due to ash cloud from Icelandic volcano.

Rihanna was on top of her game in Arnhem, cranking out hit after hit, the “Rude Boy” singer dazzled as she took the stage at the GelreDome as part of her “Last Girl On Earth” tour.

Rihanna showed the Netherlands that she is one of the greatest artists of this moment. The singer gave a spectacular show, which would make Madonna and Lady Gaga jealous.

During a dazzling show Rihanna sang her most famous tunes, including the hits “Shut Up and Drive,” “Do not Stop The Music ‘,’ SOS ‘ and “Umbrella”.

The audience were all eyes and ears, as Rihanna dared to sing live most part of her show. During the concert Rihanna showed dancers, acrobats, soldiers and terrifying monsters. The singer herself appeared on stage in one after another extravagant outfit.

The thousands of fans in the stadium were treated to a spectacular evening. “This is the second show of my tour, but I like this city best already”, Rihanna said to the audience.

After the concert Rihanna rushed to Amsterdam where she was spotted in an Amsterdam coffeeshop

Rihanna was urgently taken to the hospital on Monday night after a gig in Switzerland for unknown reasons.

The Last Girl On Earth tour started in Europe and will touch down in North America this summer, and Rihanna has invited Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj along for the ride!

The 22-year-old “Rock Star” singer explained the name of her tour recently. She told, “I like to think about myself as the Last Girl on Earth because sometimes people make decisions based on the outlook of others and, you know, to me, my life is my life. It’s my world, and I’m going to live it the way I want to. That’s how I think about everything, that way I’m focused on me, and my work. It’s a really narrow space, a focus.”

The tour will begin in Seattle on July 2 and make 25 stops, including Los Angeles on July 21 and New York’s Madison Square Garden on August 12, before concluding on August 25 in Chicago. Tickets go on sale at on Friday. Additional dates will be announced.

In a recent interview with AOL, the singer told fans they can expect a big upgrade in comparison to her previous tours. “We’ve never done a tour to this capacity,” she said. “The production is unbelievable and the costumes, we just took it to a whole new level. Visually and sonically it’s going to be a big step up from the last time. We just keep growing, and this time it is a massive production that I cannot wait for.”

The tour adds just another notch in the belt for these ladies’ busy schedules. Most recently, Rihanna stopped by the Kids’ Choice Awards to perform a medley of hits, including current single “Rude Boy.” The songstress is scheduled to perform on Wednesday’s “American Idol” results show.

The Last Girl on Earth Tour will be the perfect place for on-the-rise artists Ke$ha and Minaj to showcase their material. Ke$ha graced the “Idol” stage with 3OH!3 to perform “Blah, Blah, Blah.” Minaj just released the music video for her long-awaited first single, “Massive Attack.”
