Background

Following the release of her seventh studio album, Unapologetic, (2012) and her fifth concert tour, the Diamonds World Tour, Rihanna went on a hiatus. Between 2005 and 2012, Rihanna released or re-released at least one album a year. However, in 2013, Rihanna took a step back from music and did not release a new album that year or the following.<ref name=nmeinterview>"Rihanna Exclusive: I Break the Rules Even When I Don't Intend To". NME. October 7, 2015. Retrieved October 8, 2015. </ref> Instead Rihanna opted to take part in other endeavors, starring in a 3D animated film entitled Home, alongside Jim Parsons, Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez, as well as executively producing its accompanying soundtrack.<ref>Graser, Marc (February 25, 2014). "Rihanna to Make Concept Album for Upcoming Animated Movie". Variety. Retrieved April 23, 2014. </ref>

In November 2015, it was announced that Rihanna had signed a $25 million contract with Samsung to not only promote Samsung's Galaxy line of products, but to also sponsor the release of Anti and its supporting tour.<ref>"Rihanna inks $25M sponsorship deal with Samsung".

Critical reception

North America

In a review for The New York Times, Jon Caramanica stated that Rihanna was at her "most confident" and "the most present she's ever been onstage", calling her dancing "casual" and that she "appeared to be finding joy in singing — when she was doing it."<ref>Template:Citeweb</ref> Reviewing the Los Angeles concert, Latifah Muhammad from VIBE described the tour as a "randomly epic road trip."<ref>Template:Citeweb</ref>

Europe

Ed Power from The Telegraph gave Dublin concert four stars, writing that the tour "didn't waste time on embellishments and instead delivered full-strength shots of sass and escapism."<ref>Template:Citeweb</ref> The London concert also received four stars from The Guardian, where Michael Cragg praised the singer's "unshakeable Rihanna-ness; that perfect pop voice, the undeniable presence, that couldn't-give-a-shit attitude."<ref>Template:Citeweb</ref> In a negative review, Jim Harrington The Mercury News wrote that the San José concert was "a perplexing mess, which mixed an iffy set list with spotty arrangements and questionable theatrics."<ref>Template:Citeweb</ref>
