I'm picky about concert venues. Performance counts, but the atmosphere has to be right too. One of my favorite spots to see a show is the Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana, and on Oct. 26, Grammy award-winning artist Rihanna is bringing her Diamonds World Tour to the Hard Rock for a "mini" concert for some 4,000 people.

What’s better than a venue created solely for entertainment, a little Caribbean sun, a lot of golden sand and a Rihanna concert? The amenities, of course. The all-inclusive resort is just over three years old and features 15 swimming pools, nine restaurants, a Jack Nicklaus golf course and the Rock Spa, which is where I’ll be after a night of jamming to RiRi.

So whether you want to kick back on the beach or party with Barbados' R&B queen (or both), tickets and vacation packages for the event are currently on sale. One thing's for sure — the Hard Rock is no hopeless place. You'll be sure to find love there. Or at least love it!
