Rihanna 2006 Tour was a concert tour by the singer Rihanna for the album A Girl Like Me.[1] Previews started on July 1, 2006, three months after the release of that "sophomore album."[2] The tour officially kicked off on July 5, 2006 in Salt Lake City, Utah.[1] It was originally set by Def Jam Records to end with a gig in Jackson, Michigan, on August 8,[1][2] but the tour was extended through the end of September 2006, due to the success of the show.

Extension tours to Australia and Europe followed the initial North America - Jamaica tour, eventually ending in late November 2006.

A Girl Like Me had gotten fairly good reviews. Rolling Stone gave it 3 stars out of 5, and praised her: "Rihanna proves America still appreciates clever pop when it hears it."[3] A Girl like Me debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 selling 115,000 copies in its first week, nearly twice the debut sales of Music of the Sun, which sold 69,000.[4][5] Still, she needed to do more to promote the new CD, and a tour remains the usual formula to "support" an album.[2] The album had already been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) by the end of July.[6]

The beginning of the tour was done with the singer Field Mob.[1] Hilary Duff, Sean Paul, Ciara and Trey Songz participated in the shows in Toms River, New Jersey; Detroit, Michigan; Gilford, New Hampshire; and Pomona, California. The July show in Buffalo, New York was part of "Kiss the Summer Hello" featuring Ashlee Simpson, Ryan Cabrera, Rihanna, Ashley Parker Angel, Josh Hoge and The Veronicas.[7]

The tour was concentrated in the United States and Canada, with a date in Jamaica. The extended tour stretched to Australia and across Europe. Tour dates are below.
