Saturday night is sure to be huge this weekend at the American Airlines Arena when Rihanna and Ke$ha stop by for the Miami leg of their nationwide tour. While Rihanna is technically the headliner of her "Last Girl on Earth" show, there may just as well be as many fans there to see Ke$ha, whose star has recently exploded thanks to hits like "Tik Tok" and "Your Love is My Drug."
For Rihanna, this is her first tour since she was caught up in a domestic violence case early last year involving her ex-boyfriend, R&B star Chris Brown. The Grammy award winner seems to have risen above those troubled times however and has climbed back atop the charts with singles, "Hard" and "Rude Boy."
Tickets are still available at Ticketmaster.
