MUSICAL MEGASTAR RIHANNA is to give another concert in Barbados. This time it’s a privately produced event slated for November 2 this year, according to Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy. The minister told reporters at yesterday’s graduation ceremony for students of Welches Primary School at the 3Ws Oval, University of the West Indies’ Cave Hill Campus, that the event would not be produced by the Government-owned Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA) but by international concert promoters Live Nation Entertainment. “On the last occasion as part of the Loud concert tour, the BTA produced a concert here. That is not the case this time around. There is a private promoter, Live Nation, internationallyknown, and as part of [Rihanna’s] Caribbean tour she is scheduled to perform here in Barbados November 2,” Sealy informed. He added that it would indeed be another coup for Barbados from a tourism industry perspective. “We’re going to work with them, obviously. There’s a natural tourism advantage to be gained from it,” he said. Rihanna’s huge homecoming concert was held two years ago on August 5 at Kensington Oval. (RJ)
