Rihanna awed and captivated a devoted audience at the BEC arena in the northern Spanish city of Barakaldo with a show that had fans dancing and singing along at what was the first European concert of her Diamonds World Tour.

The singer from Barbados staged her show for close to 15,000 fans Sunday night.

Rihanna kicked off the evening with "Mother Mary" and went on to perform songs from her latest disc "Unapologetic," along with some of her previous greatest hits.

The singer got the audience up and dancing, above all with her best-known numbers like "Umbrella," "Only Girl (In The World)" and "Don't Stop The Music," which rocked the fans so much the BEC stands shook.

Soul, rock, reggae, rap and electronic combined in a concert during which the audience sang the successive songs and loved Rihanna's very sexy wardrobe and dancing as she moved in sync with a team of eight dancers. EFE
