Since Brooklyn's so the new Manhattan, it seems appropriate that all the big-name talent has been eschewing Madison Square Garden for the Barclays Center. Now Barclays can add another start to its repertoire: Rihanna will be headlining a show there NEXT spring. Does this mean Barclays is the hopeless place she's always going on about?
She joins a long list of other arena concert stars that'll be performing at Barclays over the next year, including Jay-Z in September, Smashing Pumpkins and Barbara Streisand in October, Bob Dylan, Justin Bieber and (fingers crossed!) The Rolling Stones in November, and Neil Young and Leonard Cohen in December.
