Over 500+ tickets will be given out for the free, all-ages show on a first-come, first-served basis at the Hammerstein Ballroom starting at 9 a.m. on December 3, or can be won through radio promotions on HOT 97.

Rated R contains the new singles “Russian Roulette” & “Hard” featuring Jeezy and is the long-awaited follow-up to Rihanna’s Good Girl Gone Bad (May 2007), which contained the non-stop string of hit singles that began with the MTV VMA and Grammy Award-winning global #1 hit “Umbrella” (featuring Jay-Z), then “Shut Up and Drive,” “Hate That I Love You” (featuring Ne-Yo), and “Don’t Stop the Music.” Good Girl Gone Bad spent 98 total weeks on the Soundscan chart, earned cumulative sales of more than 36-times platinum in at least 20 territories around the world, and spun off the CD+DVD package Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded (January 2009) – which continued the string of hits with the #1 “Take A Bow” and the #1 “Disturbia.”

Rated R was released on November 23rd and has garnered critical acclaim from The NY Times, USA Today, The Chicago Tribune, Entertainment Weekly and has four-star reviews from People, The LA Times & Rolling Stone.
