The first night of Rihanna's "Diamonds" world tour kicked off with a bang last night in Buffalo, NY.  The pop diva took the stage to rock out to tracks from all of her albums, and did it in several colorful and body baring outfit changes.

 

Check the pics and video inside....

The set was complete with pyro, a few choreographed routines and more outfit changes than a little bit.  She performed every track from her latest Diamonds album, but threw in her most popular tracks from past albums as well.

She switched up from heels to sneakers to boots depending on the look.  And the sold out crowd ate it up.

Her Rihanna for River Island collaborator, Adam Selman, helped design the outfits for the tour.   He told the NY Times last week about dressing her slim & toned bod, 'Her body is so insane. It’s the dream body to make clothes for. You don’t have to try as hard.'

The "Pour It Up" chick tweeted her fans: 'No words, just DIAMONDS!!! #EPICshit #BUFFALO $old out!!!  #BUFFALO I will never forget how you made me feel tonight!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! #1Love always'

 

Before hitting the stage, Rih dropped a BTS of her last rehearsal in Buffalo.

That Preformance was so Dry and the “Pictures” are working harder then her on that Stage (CDFU) Rihanna is just a pretty face (Minus Talent). The music industry definitely has it favorites (Wake Up People) ! This “Tart” wouldn’t even be in this position if it wasn’t for Jayz&Beyonce #keepitReal

these so call singers don't

these so call singers don't know how to pick hits. lots of people say rihanna can be very hard to work with in the studio because she know what she wants and no one push any songs on her. in the studio everything sounds like the next big hit. its takes a good ear and someone who knows what they want and is determine to get what they want to pick the right song for them. rihanna is that person. that's the 6 sense she has. as stargate said "just by playing it to her and she’ll just pick it up right then and there. There’s no point in trying to convince her to do anything because she’s fiercely independent and she knows what she wants, and I like that. She will also never tell us, “Oh, write something for me” or “Try to please me”. She doesn’t want us to please her. She wants us basically to play her our best material and that’s refreshing. You know, a lot of other big name artists they will always, “You have to write something custom made for me.” Rihanna is more like, “What have you got? What’s exciting to you? Let me hear what you got.” So that process is a little bit different, and we prefer it that way and we’ve given up trying to please in our many years together."

Really...6th what...most wud

Really...6th what...most wud say that's laughable, we all know at this point Ri's an open book that allows her to be read, by good songwriters and Plz believe its nothing more! Just as one already mentioned this is not our best and contrary to the manufactured "it" factor, that's the exact reason why Mu$ic has no real substance now , like being relatable toward progress in life, while dancing ur azz off or chillin' without an overtly sexual  photo smokin blunts.. The Fact is Music just ain't healthy as what it used to be for radio nor society!

Im not a Rih stan but I hate seeing people tear down and hate on young black girl out there doing it!

I would never see this girl

I would never see this girl in concert -- love her albums but hell to the no. Somebody on this page said it well -- If you can't sing you've got to give us more than outfit changes and bad choreography

I don't see it for Rihanna.

I don't see it for Rihanna. Yes she has great songs, but I don't think I can pay to see her perform. I need blood, sweat and tears for $200 and she's only giving you $75 worth. #sorryri

Melanie Amaro get's DROPPED

Melanie Amaro get's DROPPED FROM HER LABEL, Leona Lewis, Jasmine Sullivan, Christina A all have Great voices and don't sell! Ciara and Mya can dance yet Mya can't get a major record deal! Rihanna's NON-SINGING NON DANCING ASS get's all the GOOD SONGS and SOLD OUT CONCERTS w/ NO TALENT all because of her ASSOCIATION W/ JAY Z! RIHANNA SUCKS AND IS NOT WORTHY OF HER SUCCESSFUL MUSIC CAREER, her SONGS SHOULD GO TO BETTER SINGER'S! RIHANNA IS UNWORTHY! The Song "STAY" SHOULD HAVE GONE to a BETTER SINGER! ALL HER SONGS SHOULD GO TO BETTER SINGER'S! IT'S NOT LIKE SHE'S EVEN WRITING HER OWN SONGS! SHE IS TALENTLESS!

you give those so call

you give those so call singers those songs and they would flop. Rihanna give songs life and character. these black artist have one track mine when it comes to music. they think if you're not singing like masa just sold your kids to another slave owner you're not singing. the rest of the world don't want to hear that shit. all these black women were ready to drop their draws with Justine new song,but none were doing the same for Miguel when adorn is a better song that suite and tie. Kanye rant about it in the UK a few weeks ago saying the Grammy give Miguel 2 minutes to sing,but give Justin 10 minutes to do 2 songs. instead of support what Kanye said, niggas call him crazy and attack him relationship with kim when he was talking the truth. niggas are their worst enemy while they tear down each other whites taking over their art form

Hold up, that "Suit & Tie"

Hold up, that "Suit & Tie" mess is alright but "Adorn" is right on time with real R&B that's my jam! And I was super tight I didn't know he was opening the Love & Happiness Comedy Tour featuring MJB in San Antonio last year and missed his complete set only catching the last part of "Sure Thing". As far as the Grammy's goes you cannot blame black folks for that because we don't have nothing to do with that. The Grammy's caters to white people and everyone knows that. So of course they gave Justin more time than Miguel who most would agree is more deserving. He is after all bringing R&B back!

I don't watch the Grammy's

I don't watch the Grammy's but I'm not the least bit surprised. Um, yes white people do complain about an all black (supposedly) television station, Black History month, etc. And I wouldn't necessarily put glory in the same sentence with the BET Awards. Nothing "glorious" about that mess if you ask me. They've got to do better!

I love YBF but lately looks like everything is based on personal opinions from whoever is posting stuff. Just give us the news and leave your personal thoughts out of it.

TYBF is such a hypocrite.

That girl from the first year

That girl from the first year winner of xfactor just got drop without releasing an album. she release 3 singles none charted. in this business voice alone don't make you a star. I've been saying it for years. a label should never sign someone just because they can sing. on any bloc you can find 9 out of 10 people who can sing but only one may have star qualities. this is what record execs are missing. Rihanna is a star. people talk about voice, people spend $500 to see Britney spears lip sync for 90 minutes. it was so bad the Australian government call her out. Beyonce don't have the pipes like JHUD or fantasia or lots of other artist,but she has what they don't have star power.

@xedos, You are totally right

@xedos, You are totally right it's NOT about having a GOOD VOICE ANY MORE! My sister told me yesterday that Melanie Amaro was dropped from her label and the SAD part about is that she never even got any PROMOTION and the song she song when she came back to X-Factor was not good at all! If it was about GREAT VOICES, Melanie Amaro, Leona Lewis, Jasmine Sullivan and Christina Aguilera and many many more would be ruling the Charts! I have been to a Rihanna concert and she SUCKS BIG TIME! In my African friend thick beautiful accent (THAT RIHANNA IS SOMETHING TERRRRRRRRRRRIBLE)! Brittney can't sing BUT she can dance and her ONYX HOTEL and Circus Tours and stage PRESENCE and she gave you a show! Lady GaGa, Beyonce, Madonna even Christina A when she was on gave you a show! Janet J, Ciara, even Mya gave you a show! This Girl walks around PRANCING ON STAGE then she rolls around and lays on the ground SHE SUCKS! I recommend her concert if you want to be around alot of DRUNK WHITE FOLKS and listening to some catchy songs that you could have stayed home and listened to on the radio! I will give her this: Good Catchy Songs, Nice Outfits AND NOTHING MORE! A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY! THIS IS CHICK IS NOT WORTHY !

=( this is soo true! i love

=( this is soo true! i love rihanna but you make the big bucks with concerts and performing and she sucks shes not a entertainer at all....

Also is not really about star

Also is not really about star power its more about the moral decadence of society....afterall whitney and others made it in their time with cloths.......society has gne downhill..

Couldnt have said it

Couldnt have said it better...been to a Rihanna show and SHE SUCKS!!.....the only thing going for her is that she has catchy songs...

She needs multiple outfit

She needs multiple outfit changes, because that's what makes her. People are there for the visual. If she stayed in one outfit the whole time, people will begin to question their reasoning for being there. P.S. Tasha, can you please take down that video hoe ad, you got going on the side. My apple bum is just perfect.... thank you!!!

have you ever been to or saw

have you ever been to or saw a Diana Ross show? you must be young. costume changes is part of show business. this is not your average low budget RNB show.

No, i've never been to a Diana Ross show, and you must be old, Marla Gibbs. I know costume changes are apart of show business, my point was, is that she needs it or else. She sounds like a flock of birds, plus her dutty wind is played out. Ain't nobody got time for that.
