Beyoncé announces ‘Formation’ world tour, with stop at Rose Bowl
No one holds on to a secret like Beyoncé does.
After a weekend that included her eagerly awaited return to the Super Bowl stage and the surprise release of a new single called “Formation,” the pop diva has announced she will hit the road this spring in a commercial that dropped right after her appearance alongside Coldplay and Bruno Mars.
Beyoncé will embark on her first solo world tour since 2013 for a stadium tour.
Billed as “The Formation World Tour,” the trek launches April 27 in Miami with 21 additional stadium dates throughout the U.S including a May 14th date at the Rose Bowl.
The European leg of the tour will start on June 28 in Sunderland, United Kingdom.
The singer last played stadiums alongside her husband on 2014’s “On the Run” tour.
Rumors of Beyoncé’s return to the stage have intensified in recent months, with reports of a planned tour and photos of the singer on set of what appeared to be a music video leaked online.
A day before Super Bowl, the singer dropped the new single without warning.
Released exclusively to Tidal for streaming and downloading, the surprise release came in the form of the single and its accompanying, Internet-breaking visual.
Mike WiLL Made-It produced the banger and it was co-written by Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee.
Tickets for the U.S. dates will go on sale starting Feb. 16.
