Superstar Rihanna will come to Twickenham in June 2013, it was announced this week.

The Bajan signer will be performing in Twickenham stadium on Saturday, June 15, as part of her Diamonds World Tour.

Some of the world’s leading bands, including The Rolling Stones, U2, The Eagles and, most recently, Lady Gaga have performed at the iconic rugby ground.

There will be discounted tickets for people living in post codes TW1, TW2, TW3 2 and TW7 7.

The Rugby Football Union holds 1,100 discounted tickets for every concert, and tickets will be available through a ballot published in the RFU’s community magazine Rugby Post in late January.

Tickets for Rihanna will go on sale on Tuesday, November 20, at 9am. They are available online from ticketmaster.co.uk and livenation.co.uk.

She will be supported in Twickenham by David Guetta.

Twickenham Bob says...

Last time They had a pop concert at the Rugby Ground there was gridlock on the roads untill 2am, making residents lives a nightmare with streets filled with ars blaring out pop music and honking car horns.

Due to the pantomime horse of a planning committee at Richmond Council not insisting on the RFU paying for the police to manage the traffic and that for pop concerts far more people arrive by car.

The RFU is increasing being seen as a bad neighbour and its wings need to be clipped. A couple of years ago the London Assemble report said what the RFU get away with would be unacceptable anywhere else in London.

It's time the Coincil got a backbone and insisted on a proper 100% No-car policy for the RFU - and no consecutive big matches each weekend at the ground.

Twickenham High street is struggling with lots of empty shops and the ones that are opening are limping by. The reason is clear - an unfettered RFU is scaring off all the customers in the make or break trading period before Christmas.

As someone that lives 'very' close to the stadium I agree somewhat that 4 x large games in a row on Saturday afternoons are frustrating as the traffic is crazy but then I knew that when I moved to the area. As for concerts I have no issue with these and think they are a good thing. Thankfully, unlike Twickenham Bob I wont be out on the roads at 2am :-)

I agree that the RFU concerts are a good thing for Twickenham
.
However, the traffic management for Lady Gaga was poor, due to police outsourcing, and must be improved.

There appears to be a date conflict with Solum's Twickenham station weekend closures for redevelopment works. But maybe the mighty RFU has called in a favour from Solum.

For those planning on going to the concert you'd better start saving as prices range from £55 (sitting 100m from the stage) to £340 (incl fees).
