The entire collection up was extremely minimalist, even Rihanna herself, regardless of four costume changes. The stage, native floor come ceiling, was covered in white, fairly literally serving as a empty canvas. In fact, every color on the stage appeared to save to a monochromatic palette: white, grey, black and also brown. Rihanna transitioned native one neutral spanned covering come another, not relying on blatant sexy getups that would distract from her remarkable vocals, however she still in which method made overlapping white jackets and also bulky brown coats sexy. The focus was top top the music, yet let’s face it: the girl tho oozes sex.Surprisingly, despite her reputation thus a sex kitten (just examine out she Instagram feed), she’s exceptionally silly and also charming ~ above stage, also awkwardly adorable. A laugh lit up her confront the entire show, and with every relocate she shook next by side v her dancers, she’d do faces, stick out her tongue, basically embrace the silliness and also have fun through it. The why she has actually such universal appeal: due to the fact that she is whatever that we strive to be and everything we currently are. There’s confidence, sass, silliness, vulnerability and also sex all embodied in one music icon.The display was split into acts, each one showcasing a different side. There to be the delicate side, which conveniently evolved into the sexy side, as she kicked turn off the show with "Stay" and also flowed right into "Sex through Me." Rihanna grinded atop a floating catwalk, swinging her method towards the stage before hitting it and switching gears to the tough-as-nails hits like "Bitch far better Have mine Money" and also "Pour it Up." The popular music throwbacks come next, with hits choose "Umbrella," "Live your Life" and "Run This Town" all providing a nod come the dancehall hits she began with, followed by a feeling of the island she hails from with songs prefer "Rude Boy" and also "Man Down." She surprisingly determined to slow it under again because that her last numbers, pull in bulky brown pants and a jacket and singing in former of a psychedelic light forecast for an ext churchy songs prefer "FourFive Seconds" and also "Love ~ above the Brain." Overall, she walk a great job fitting in as many of her fan’s favourite as possible while still devoting the mass of the tour to the newest speculative material native Anti. Songs like "Disturbia," "S&M" and "Pon De Replay" were left out, along with many various other monster hits, but with a earlier catalogue so complete of billboard-topping favorites, something had to give. The Anti civilization Tour is only on day six, but based upon what Charlotte got a taste the Sunday, it’s certain to be one of Rihanna’s many epic and successful tours yet.
