It’s official: Beyoncé and Jay Z are hitting the road together this summer.

Mr. and Mrs. Carter have announced their first joint tour.

The On the Run tour, named after their Grammy-nominated collaboration on Jay Z’s most recent album “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” will take music’s most famous couple to stadiums across North America this summer.

The 16-date trek starts June 25 in Miami and wraps Aug. 5 in San Francisco. The Carters will stop at the Rose Bowl on Aug. 2.


Page Six first broke the news of the couple’s tour. A source close to the production who confirmed the tour to the Los Angeles Times said there are also tentative plans to take the show to Europe.

Despite a number of joint hits documenting their love over the last dozen or so years -- “Crazy in Love,” “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” and “Drunk In Love,” to name the biggest -- and countless performances together, the pair had yet to tour together.

It’s already been a busy year for the Carters.

Jay’s Magna Carter world tour ended in January after a stadium run with Justin Timberlake. The rap mogul also recently announced an L.A. edition of his Made in America Festival.

Beyoncé’s extensive Mrs. Carter Show -- she dropped her top-secret surprise self-titled album toward the end of her U.S. run -- closed in March and was one of the top-grossing tours of all time.

Tickets go on sale to the public May 2 through Ticketmaster. Pre-sales begin Tuesday.
