The 27-year-old will be the first major music act to perform at what will be the newly named Principality Stadium in June 2016.

She was watched by more than 60,000 fans when she first sang at the venue in Cardiff in 2013.

Rihanna has sold more than 200 million records worldwide and will launch her 70-date Anti World Tour next February in the USA. Tickets for the Cardiff show go on sale on Thursday, December 3.
