Rihanna Books First Live Show Since Brown Bust-up

R&B singer RIHANNA has booked her first live stage show since her alleged altercation with ex-boyfriend CHRIS BROWN in February (09) - in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The couple was involved in a well-publicised fight in Los Angeles in the early hours of 8 February (09), which reportedly left Rihanna battered and bruised - and prompted both singers to pull out of their performances for the Grammy Awards that night.
Rihanna made her return to the recording studio just days after the incident, and now she's working on a stage show in the Middle East, scheduled for 28 May (09) at a venue to be determined
Promoter Yassin Matbouly says, "We have been working to bring Rihanna to the region for a while now but it has never been the right time for one reason or another. This time everything worked out and the gig will more than likely be the last outdoor concert before the summer - and one not to miss."
Brown was arraigned on two felony charges of assault and making criminal threats earlier this month (06Apr09).
He will return before a judge for a preliminary hearing on 29 April (09), and faces nearly five years behind bars if convicted.
