The world premiere of the concert documentary “Rihanna 777,” starring Barbados native Rihanna, airs at 7 p.m. Monday, May 6 on Fox.

Details on “Rihanna 777,” provided by Fox, are as follows:

Filling a 777 jet with 256 die-hard fans and international journalists, Rihanna began a nonstop performance tour on November 14, 2012, traveling to Mexico City, Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London and New York City to promote her album, “Unapologetic.” The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with her single, “Diamonds,” reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 the day after the 777 tour ended.

The entire tour was documented by a film crew, offering fans stellar performances of her greatest hits in glamorous locales. The film also provides an inside look at the singer’s ambitious and often turbulent tour, from the sound of popping champagne corks on the plane, to the backstage chaos, to the singer’s special worldwide appearances.

Rihanna’s music has earned her countless awards and accolades, including seven Grammy Award wins, five American Music Awards, 18 Billboard Music Awards and three MTV Video Music Awards. “Unapologetic” is Rihanna’s seventh studio album and “Diamonds” marks her twelfth Hot 100 No. 1 hit.

“Rihanna 777″ is a Fenty Films production in conjunction with Love Live and Gravité Creative.
