Jay-Z In The Audience Of Rihanna’s 777 Show In New York

November 21, 2012 | Posted by Joseph Lee

NME reports that Jay-Z was in the audience for the New York stop on Rihanna’s 777 tour. This was the end of a tour that saw the singer hit seven countries in seven days. It was sold out to a 1,500 capacity crowd at the Webster Hall.

Even though she hinted there would be guests joining her, it was the same as her past six shows. Jay-Z didn’t even get on stage for their collaborations “Umbrella” and “Run This Town”.

After a raucous crowd on the jet carrying Rihanna, her entourage and over 150 journalists and fans, she made an in flight appearance yesterday just as the plane was about toe land. She admitted to the crowd that her voice was under a lot of pressure. She added: “I just can’t go and go and go. This time I just had to sleep. Usually I would be back here partying my balls off but I had to take care of my health.

She still attended after parties in Stockholm (pouring shots for fans) and Paris (with P. Diddy and Pharrell Williams). She said it was hard being a host and a performer. She said: “I would do it again but I’d sit back here so I could see the naked Australian.” She was referring to Australian DJ Tim Dormer, who streaked through the cabin on the flight between Berlin and London.

Here’s a set list from her New York show:

‘Cockiness’
‘Birthday Cake’
‘Talk That Talk’
‘The Wait Is Over’
‘Shot A Man Down’
‘Only Girl In The World’
‘Please Don’t Stop The Music’
‘S&M’
Acoustic section (‘Unfaithful’, ‘Take A Bow’, ‘Hate How Much I Love You’)
‘Take Care’
‘Where Have You Been All My Life’
‘Run This Town’
‘All Of The Lights’
‘Stay’
‘Diamonds’
‘Umbrella’
‘We Found Love’

She will also play five UK shows next summer. These include the following dates:

Cardiff Millennium Stadium (June 10)
Manchester Arena (June 12)
Twickenham Stadium (June 15)
Birmingham LG Arena (June 17)
Sunderland Stadium Of Light (June 20)
