Rihanna previews 'Diamonds' world tour staging - video

By
Rihanna has previewed the staging for her upcoming 'Diamonds' world tour.

The worldwide run will start in North America at the end of this week, before landing in the UK on June 10.



A new behind-the-scenes video sees Rihanna's production assistant explaining that the set has taken "close to eight million hours" to make so far, and they have "three million more hours to go".

A design crew have been building the stage since late 2012, with the physical set having been in construction for five weeks already.

"We're gonna have 58 touring crew, which is the biggest tour Rihanna's ever done," the star's production manager Joe Sanchez said.

"This is definitely a bigger show; it's a more complex show, absolutely. There's a lot of flown innovative elements that have never really been done before."

Rihanna has also released video footage of herself rehearsing "stripper" choreography for a performance of 'Pour It Up' during the show.
