Rihanna to Perform in Iceland?

A resilient rumor has been circulating that Barbadian singer Rihanna will perform in Kórinn in Kópavogur, a neighboring town of Reykjavík, next summer, where a Justin Timberlake concert—the biggest concert in Iceland so far—was held to great success last year.

“I cannot confirm anything but I have heard that someone of a similar caliber as in last summer’s concert [has been booked to perform in Kórinn],” Birgir Bjarnason, managing director of sports club HK who runs Kórinn, told Vísir. “We have been asked to reserve dates in June and July.”

According to Fréttablaðið’s and Vísir’s sources, a known international star is set to perform in Kórinn, and Rihanna has been mentioned as a likely candidate in the Icelandic music industry.

Rihanna has sold over 30 million copies of her albums worldwide. She has just completed a U.S. tour with rapper Eminem. The tour was organized by Live Nation, who organized Timberlake’s concert in Iceland last year in collaboration with local company Sena.
