Rihanna lights up the Netherlands with electrifying performance and SEVEN costume changes
By Daily Mail Reporter

Raunchy: Rihanna threw on an array of revealing outfits during the show which was held at the Gelredome arena in Arnhem, Holland

She has her fair share of critics, but there's no doubting that Rihanna can put on a dazzling show.

The pop singer is currently performing around Europe as part of her Last Girl On Earth tour, her latest stop taking in Arnhem in the Netherlands.

Rihanna, 22, set the stage alight at the Gelredome with a huge array of outfits, set pieces and special effects... and of course, her chart-topping songs

Lighting up the Netherlands: The singer wears a floor-length gown covered with red LED lights

In her typically eccentric and risque style, the Barbados-born star took to the stage in several skimpy outfits, including a white mesh number that left very little to the imagination.

In fact, at first glance she appeared to be naked but, on closer inspection, it was clear she had a flesh-coloured bodysuit on underneath.

Other costume changes brought out a gown covered in red LED lights, an ultra-skimpy PVC outfit that showed off her rear and a bizarre black and white costume with huge puffballs on the shoulders.

Risqué: Rihanna appeared to be naked underneath one of her costumes - however, her modesty was protected by a flesh-coloured bodysuit

However, it has been reported that she left some of her Belgian fans a little disappointed after her show in Antwerp.

According to a number of online reviewers, the singer appeared moody, forgot the lines to some of her songs and barely danced.

One reviewer, who described themselves as a fan of Rihanna, took to their online blog to criticise her performance.

Outrageous: Monsters appeared on stage during the singer's performance of Disturbia

They said: 'Her vocals weren’t as bad as I expected them to be, but she clearly omitted the difficult parts and even forgot some of the lyrics.

'I couldn’t almost believe it, but the choreography (if any) was really poor. There were only a couple of dancers, which didn’t impress me. Rihanna barely danced herself as well.

'It seemed to me she didn’t like being on stage at all. She came across rather moody and barely smiled.'

This was backed up by comments made by users on YouTube, where several videos of the concert have already been posted.

The Last Girl On Earth tour will hit the UK next month, kicking off in Birmingham on May 7.

Rihanna will be supported by British chart-topper Pixie Lott.

The two-week tour will take in venues in Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham, Newcastle, Glasgow and Belfast.

She has also signed up to perform at the Capital FM Summerball, which takes place at Wembley Stadium on June 6.

Other stars performing at the huge concert include Usher, JLS, Cheryl Cole and Justin Bieber.
