Watch the throne, and kiss the ring. There is no escape: 2013 is shaping up to be the Year of Beyoncé. Taking a page from the Madonna playbook, Queen Bey announced today that she’s hitting the road for an international tour that will stop in San Jose.
After a mostly unremarkable halftime show with her Destiny’s Child cohorts (although, those outfits were quite impressive), Beyoncé used the Monday morning post-Super Bowl buzz to announce the Mrs. Carter World Tour.
The tour stops in San Jose at HP Pavilion on July 2. Tickets go on Sale February 11 with pricing at $253, $128, 88 and $48. It should sell out quickly.
More details from Live Nation:
With stops in twenty European cities, including Dublin, Ireland; Berlin, Germany; Paris, France and a four-night stint at The 02 in London, UK, this is Beyoncé’s first multi-city tour in over three years.
Beyoncé’s North American Tour begins on June 28 in Los Angeles, California. The tour will travel to over twentycities throughout North America this summer, including Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center, Atlanta, Georgia, at the Gwinnett Center, Houston, Texas at the Toyota Center, Toronto, Ontario at Air Canada Centre, and Boston, Massachusetts at TD Garden.
On June 28, Beyoncé returns to Los Angeles, California as part of the BET Experience At L.A. Live at the Staples Center. She is set to headline the first of the three-night STAPLES Concert series. And continuing her successful run at international music festivals, following a headlining night at Glastonbury in 2011, she is confirmed to headline at the world’s largest music festival, Rock in Rio, on its first night, September 13 at the “City of Rock” in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rock in Rio has set records for its massive crowds and its powerful media drive.
