Rihanna hit the stage in London on Monday night to play one of her first concerts in support of upcoming album, “Rated R.”

The event, which saw the singer dressed in a black leotard and stiletto black boots, featured guest appearances by her former record label boss and musical collaborator, Jay-Z.

“Ladies and gentlemen, for those of you who are easily frightened, we suggest you turn around right now. For those of you who can take it, we say: Welcome to the mad house,” a pre-recorded greeting told fans at the show, according to MTV News.

In addition to “Mad House,” Rihanna churned out a host of her new songs, including “Wait Your Turn” and “Russian Roulette.”

Young Jeezy joined Rihanna on stage for “Hard,” while Jay-Z joined the singer for “Run This Town.”

Rihanna also played a host of older tracks, including “Don’t Stop The Music,” “Disturbia” and “Take A Bow,” the Web site reported.

The event was sponsored by Nokia, who reportedly broadcast the event on the Internet.
