Rihanna is set to release a documentary about her 777 tour.
The film airs on FOX (check your local listings for channel) May 6 at 8 p.m. (8:00-9PM ET/PT) and will take a look at the singer’s chaotic worldwide tour.
According to a statement released by FOX, the film "gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Rihanna's unprecendented globe-trotting concert tour ... from the sound of popping champagne corks on the plane, to the backstage chaos, to the singer's special worldwide appearances."
In November, Rihanna kicked off her "777" tour to promote her latest album, “Unapologetic,” heading to seven countries in seven days.
She boarded a private Boeing 777, the world’s largest twin-jet, along with 150 journalists and a select number of fans. Her first stop was Mexico City, from there she continued to Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London, and lastly, New York.
"I am so excited about the 777 Tour," Rihanna said on her official website. "We are turning this jumbo jet into our tour bus. We're practically living on this thing for a week: sleeping, partying, all together. Me, my fans, the press. ... it's going to be a wild ride. I wanted it to be a rock n' roll adventure, and I think when it's over it will be the coolest thing I've ever done. I'm that excited about it."
Rihanna ended her worldwide 777 tour at Webster Hall in New York, calling the audience her “best crowd ever.”
"I'm spoiled right now. You are die-hard fans, one. You don't give a [expletive], two. Three, that makes you unapologetic, a lot like me.
"This is definitely the best show so far, and it's not even over. But you guys know I'm not gassing you because you're New Yorkers. You're real,” Rihanna went on to say.
"#777Tour is a wrap! Thanks to everyone who was a part of this. It was an incredible experience for my fans and I! #UNAPOLOGETIC is OWT," Rihanna later tweeted.
Her seventh album in seven years, “Unapologetic,” was released on Nov. 19 and topped music charts around the world. Rihanna is currently on her “Diamonds” World Tour.
