Rihanna Will Be in Town for the Super Bowl; Too Bad You Can't See Her
Rihanna is finally coming back to play Phoenix as part of DirecTV's Super Saturday party the night before the big game.
Too bad that her regular ol' fans, who haven't seen the singer grace the Grand Canyon state since a 2010 concert in Tuscon, won't be able to see her. SOS! The party is invite-only. What now?
Yes, that means no tickets will be on sale to the public. No word yet on how to snag an invite.
The Super Saturday party is different from the DirecTV Super Fan Festival, which takes place Wednesday, January 28, through Friday, January 30. Though the venue, Pendergast Family Farm, is the same, tickets are on sale for Super Fan Festival starting at a mere $99. Those concerts will feature Alesso, American Authors, Becky G, Calvin Harris, Imagine Dragons, Ingrid Michaelson, Zac Brown Band, Snoop Dogg, and Young the Giant.
Update: Of course, some have speculated that Rihanna is going to be a secret guest during Katy Perry's halftime show. The clues came during an interview where Perry revealed that someone else besides her and Lenny Kravitz would perform. The interviewer asked, "Rihanna?" and Perry just smiled and replied, "Let's just say female empowerment."
Regardless, you still can't get a ticket.
