The upcoming gigs, festivals and shows you won't want to miss
The prolific Rihanna is back, just a year and a half after her first visit to Barcelona, ready to show why she’s the hardest-working pop star going. Touring with her seventh studio album, Unapologetic (2012), Rihanna is sure to also treat her fans to her greatest hits and maybe, just maybe, something even newer – if she has time to stop by the studio on her way over.
British alt-rock faves put on their big show this summer, featuring their latest work, The 2nd Law (2012). The trio will blast out their hits, including “Survival”, the official song of the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
