Rihanna Hotels in Manchester Evening News Arena

Rihanna is set to return to Manchester as part of her big comeback tour (Rated –R) to coincide with her fourth studio album (of the same name). It is the first time Rihanna will be playing at the Manchester Evening News Arena since 2007.
Following a somewhat turbulent few years, Rihanna, of whom media coverage has been strife with reports of domestic violence suffered at the hands of her then-boyfriend: multi-award winner and R&B sensation Chris Brown. Rihanna soon split from Brown after repeated attacks leaving fans shocked at images of her badly bruised face resulting from the abuse suffered at the hands of Brown.

Rihanna has done much to shake off the pity and soft image accumulated during this period; however it was always going to be inevitable that whatever song the star released first would be related back to her relationship with Brown.
The album shows a dark, rebellious side of Rihanna and the tour promises to hold a whole lot more attitude, packed with dance routines, heavy beats and the fantastic voice that is Rihanna.

The platinum-selling superstar will perform classic tracks such as Umbrella, SOS and Shut up and Drive with new album material such as So Hard, Russian Roulette and Te Amo.

With only one confirmed date (Sunday 16th May at 7.30) and tickets ranging from a mere £39.50 to £45.00, be sure not to miss out on seeing the Barbadian phenomena return to the UK on her spectacular tour. Buy your tickets here.

Black Eyed Peas to tour in Manchester

The multi-award wining, chart topping, platinum selling super quarto that is the Black Eyed Peas have announced a second date at the Manchester MEN Arena as part of their ambitious 100-show world tour – “The E.N.D.” (Energy Never Dies). The album and tour of the same name, cleverly acronymed, has led many to speculate the end (the normal kind here) of the beat pumping band. The tour promises to be a superb show (if there X-factor performance is anything to go by) seeing the band play previous number one hits such as My Humps, Shut Up and of course Where is the Love as well as tracks from their new album such as Boom Boom Pow, I Gotta a feeling and Rock that Body.

Cheryl Cole (or is it now Tweedy?) is set to be the special guest at the Manchester performance. Cole has previously collaborated with band member Will.i.am on tracks such as Heartbreaker and 3-words, whilst Co-band member Fergie and Cheryl are rumoured to be good friends after meeting through Will.i.am and on the set of their X-factor performance.

With a fantastic back catalogue of 7 years worth of songs, crazy stage sets, costume outfits and probably even crazier performance routines, The E.N.D. world tour promises to be a show worth watching.

With only 2 confirmed dates at the Manchester MEN Arena (Sunday 23rd May, 7pm & Monday 24th May 7pm) be sure not to miss out.

West Yorkshire Playhouse based in the heart of Leeds City Centre, itself the heart of Yorkshire, is highly renowned for being a hub of high end theatre productions. Here at Roomzzz we have been eagerly awaiting the release of “The Count of Monte Cristo.” A far cry from the original story, writer Joel Horwood and Director Alan Lane have brought the world renowned story of the Count’s transformation from wronged youth into seductive avenger into the 21st Century. The story sees the Count betrayed by those he held most dear, his childhood romance snatched right from him and the Count’s opportunity to take revenge. What results is fun adaptation of the original story whilst the playwright remains true to Alexandre Dumas’ tragedy of the Count’s past. A perfect way to draw to an end the holiday of Easter and as the days are getting longer, the weather warmer and the sun brighter, why not treat yourself to something different this Spring.

The production is running from 16th April to 15th May 2010 (showing@ 7:45). Prices are three-tiered (£16, £21, £26).
