Rihanna played the second gig of her seven-day 777 Tour last night (November 15) at the 1400 capacity Sheraton Theatre in Toronto, Canada, where she thanked fans for rushing down to the last-minute show.

Earlier in the day she spent time chatting to fans at the airport as the plane changed over from Mexico City, where she was spotted collecting her luggage at the baggage carousel. "I get my own bags because it's my shit," she explained.

During the show, the singer gave away an exclusive Rihanna phone to the fan she thought most worthy; someone who was underage despite the show having an 18-plus limit. "Because you're a fucking rockstar," she said as she handed it over.

'Please Don't Stop The Music', from third album 'Good Girl Gone Bad', was given an airing and Rihanna asked fans to choose between a new song or Eminem collaboration 'Love The Way You Lie'.

After complaints that the Mexico stage was too small, and a late running time, she debuted her full live band, impressive laser show and new visuals. She performed 'Birthday Cake' and 'S&M' from a raised platform in the middle of the stage and the show ended with 'We Found Love' and an explosion of confetti.

"OMG" said Katie Luke, 21 from Toronto, speaking after the show "I never thought I'd see her so close, she's so killer. Now I'm going to be sick". Not everyone was impressed: a Toronto blogger was overheard saying that she was going to give the event one star.

This evening (November 16) Rihanna will play Berns in Stockholm.

Rihanna played:

'Cockiness (I love it)'
'Birthday Sex'
'Talk That Talk'
'Wait Your Turn'
'Man Down'
'Only Girl (In The World)'
'Don't Stop The Music'
'Fresh Off The Runway'
'Take A Bow'
'Hate That I Love You'
'Where Have You Been'
'What's My Name'
'Run This Town'
'All Of The Lights'
'Love The Way You Lie'
'We Found Love'

It's also been announced that Rihanna will turn on the Christmas lights at the Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, London, at 5pm on Monday, the day of 'Unapologetic's release. The Sun newspaper suggested that Rihanna was being paid £4 million for the honour, but this has been confirmed false by her publicists.

Rihanna is also set to play five UK dates in summer 2013 as part of a world tour. The singer will kick off the stretch at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on June 10, before heading to Manchester, London, Birmingham and Sunderland.

Rihanna will play:

Cardiff Millennium Stadium (June 10)
Manchester Arena (June 12)
Twickenham Stadium (June 15)
Birmingham LG Arena (June 17)
Sunderland Stadium Of Light (June 20)
