The majesty of Stockholm‘s Berns Salonger wiped away any lingering fatigue felt by the #Rihanna777 traveling group a seven-hour flight from Toronto. It was the first trip to the Continent for many, making the anticipation all the greater:  “We’re in Europe! We’re excited so I hope that she feels that too,” said one contest winner from Maryland.

Oh, she felt it alright: The huge venue, built in the 1860s, was packed with charged-up Swedes and touring fans. And Rihanna delivered the best show of the tour to date. (Check a snippet out above)

The after party in the basement was big fun as well—especially since most of the novices toddled off before Ri appeared at 3am, pouring drinks for fans and chatting with night owls. We were thrilled to have “The Only Girl in the World” mix our cocktails—but the sexy bartender (below) almost had us asking, “Rihanna who?” Almost.

Up next—The City of Lights!
