Rihanna to play only UK show of 2012 at Wireless Festival
Date Posted: 10/11/11
Rihanna has been named as the first headline act for Barclaycard Wireless 2012, where she will play her only UK show of the year.
The Barbadian-born singer will perform at Hyde Park in front of music lovers booking London hotels, with the festival running between Friday July 6th and Sunday July 8th.
Further acts will be named for the event, with tickets going on sale on Friday November 18th.
Rihanna is currently touring the UK, where she has sold more than 300,000 tickets for her shows, which include a record-breaking ten gigs at The O2.
Along with those London dates, Rihanna will also be performing in Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow before the end of November.
Last year Wireless welcomed a host of international music stars, including the Black Eyed Peas, Plan B, The Streets, Katy B, Pulp, Grace Jones and Cut Copy, making it one of the most popular festivals in the UK.
