Only a select group of fans got to join Rihanna on her highly-publicized 777 Tour last November. But, come May, everyone will get the chance to see all the ups and downs of her seven-city trek across the globe.
The documentary, aptly billed as "Rihanna 777," is set to premiere on Fox on May 6, The Hollywood Reporter reports. It will give fans an insider look at everything that went down during that sometimes bumpy one-week trip the singer used to promote her chart-topping album release, Unapologetic.
The jaunt kicked off on November 14, with Rihanna and more than 150 journalists and fans in tow, ready to embark on a worldwide adventure. Rihanna played shows in Mexico City, Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London and New York to promote the release. But, somewhere along the way, the days spent on the Boeing 777 in such close proximity with each other, but with very little access to the pop superstar caused some disruptions aboard the flight.
While making the trip from Berlin to London, the passengers were delayed for hours on the tarmac and resulting in what one writer called "bedlam," including one journalist who streaked. After making a lot of headlines, the crew eventually landed in London. And the week-long press trip ended in New York on November 20, to play out the final show.
Upon landing in New York, Rihanna shared that she'd "f---ing do this again" and later defended the trip again in an interview with England's Radio 1.
"It was different having to do your job but also have 200 guests come along with you," she said. "They all want you to host a party every time you get on the plane after a show but you really only have that time to sleep until you get to the next country ... Sometimes it was a two-hour ride to the next country and that was all the sleep you would get."
