Rihanna will flash her Diamonds -- and likely much more -- in Canada next spring.

The provocative pop diva is heading out on the road on her Diamonds World Tour in March, and the itinerary includes seven Canadian stops, promoters have announced.

Rihanna's tour begins March 8 in Buffalo and hit 27 cities in North America. Her first date north of the border is March 17 in Montreal, followed by a show the next night at Toronto's Air Canada Centre. The tour then heads west to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and an April Fool's Day gig in Vancouver, before circling around to wrap up in Ottawa on May 2. See below for a full list of dates and locations.

Tickets for most of the shows go on sale Friday Sept. 14 and Saturday Sept. 15 at Ticketmaster. After fees and taxes, they'll set you back somewhere between $43 and $168, depending on the city, seating and venue.

Rihanna's most recent album is 2011's Talk That Talk. She performed her latest single Cockiness (Love it) on this year's MTV Video Music Awards with rapper A$AP Rocky.

Rihanna's Canadian tour dates:


March 17 | Montreal | Bell Centre

March 18 | Toronto | Air Canada Centre

March 25 | Winnipeg | MTS Centre

March 27 | Edmonton | Rexall Place

March 30 | Calgary | Scotiabank Saddledome
