For the first time in two years, Beyoncé is going out on a headlining tour. The singer announced her The Formation World Tour tonight (Feb. 7) literally seconds after she performed at the Super Bowl 50 half time show. She announced the tour in a commercial that aired directly after the half time show, and a complete list of Beyoncé’s tour dates can be viewed below.
The last time Beyoncé solely headlined a tour was The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. That tour lasted from April 2013 to March 2014. Later that year she did co-headline the On the Run Tour with her husband Jay Z.
Beyoncé’s The Formation World Tour is set to kick off April 27 in Miami with her headlining concert at the Marlins Park. Thus far she has announced two legs. The spring 2016 leg of the tour takes place in North America, and the summer leg takes place overseas.
Pre-sale tickets for Beyoncé’s The Formation World Tour can be bought beginning Feb. 9. You must be a member of her Beyhive Fan Club or an American Express card member in order to gain access to the pre-sale. Tickets go on sale to the public Feb. 15 via Live Nation.
Beyoncé’s The Formation World Tour is named after a song that she just released yesterday, Feb. 7. Not only did she release the single “Formation’ yesterday, but Beyoncé also released an official music video for that song, which can only be viewed via her official website.
During the Super Bowl 50 half time show tonight she performed “Formation” live for the first time on a televised program. Coldplay headlined the performance, and Bruno Mars also appeared. During the half time show Beyoncé wore an outfit that was reminiscent to the one Michael Jackson wore during his Super Bowl half time performance back in 1993.
