Rihanna Adds Cee Lo Green To Her LOUD Tour, Adds Ten Additional Tour Dates

cee-lo-greenRihanna has just announced that the incomparable Atlanta singer, songwriter, rapper Cee Lo Green will join her on the highly anticipated LOUD summer tour. The tour, produced by Live Nation, is scheduled to begin on June 4th in Baltimore. This should be a hot combination, Cee Lo’s first album, Cee Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections, is still one of my favorite albums of all time with classics like Under Tha Influence (Follow Me) and Spend Tha Night In Your Mind. And don’t get me started on his Goodie Mob days.

Ten additional dates have been announced for a total of 17 confirmed dates for the North American leg of the LOUD tour thus far. Additional dates include Montreal, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Houston, Dallas, Albuquerque and Boston with more to be announced soon. Tickets for the newly announced shows go on sale beginning Friday, February 18th in select markets at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

Cee Lo set the blogosphere on fire again with the Grammy Awards’ performance of his smash nominated single “Forget You” with Cee Lo decked out in colorful feathers and bedazzled featuring special guest Gwyneth Paltrow and an assortment of unforgettable muppets as his backing band and dancers. “Forget You” is the first single from Cee Lo’s third album Cee Lo Green The Lady Killer which was released this past November. Cee Lo began his career as part of the renowned and influential Atlanta hip hop group Goodie Mob prior to breaking out on his own as Cee Lo Green. Cee Lo released his acclaimed debut solo album Cee Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections in 2002 to incredible critical applause and followed up in 2004 with Cee Lo Green Is The Soul Machine. Cee Lo is also part of the superstar duo Gnarles Barkley with heralded alternative music producer Danger Mouse, whose debut album featured the genre crossing global hit single, “Crazy.”

Rihanna and Cee Lo both won Grammy Awards on Sunday Night with “Only Girl In The World,” being named best Dance Record for Rihanna and Cee Lo won Best Urban/Alternative Performance for “Forget You.
