Rihanna // Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Bash

Rihanna is reportedly preparing to take the stage in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on May 28th, in her first performance since her February 2009 altercation with her (former?) boyfriend Chris Brown. Her last concert was January 29th in Los Angeles.

“There will be over 25,000 tickets available,” says Mary Rachelle Cherpak, a spokeswoman for Dubai Tourism. “They will be going on sale in the next couple of days.”

Though the location is still TBD, she says it will most likely be a designer outdoor venue.

Says Cherpak: “Normally they create a special stage in the desert for these events.”
