California, February 8th, 2016: Beyonce has announced “THE FORMATION WORLD TOUR” yesterday following her appearance during SuperBowl 50.
The tour will be promoted by Live Nation, presented by American Express and produced by Parkwood Entertainment and will kick off in North America on April 27 in Miami, Fla. at Marlins Park with 21 additional stadium dates lined up throughout the country including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Philadelphia, Dallas and more.
The European leg of THE FORMATION WORLD TOUR will start on June 28 in Sunderland, United Kingdom at Stadium of Light.
Additional European stadium dates include London, Manchester, Zurich, Amsterdam, Paris, Milan, Stockholm, Frankfurt and more.
Tickets will go on sale starting Monday, Feb. 15 in Europe and Tuesday, Feb. 16 in North America.
Fans will be given the opportunity to participate in Beyonce’s #BeyGOOD initiative supporting local United Way programs and the continued work surrounding the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. United Way of Genesee County has been at the forefront of distributing thousands of filtration pitchers, faucet mount filters, replacement cartridges and truckloads of water to underserved populations to address immediate needs in Flint Michigan.
They are also partnering with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to create a fund that will address long-term developmental, education, nutrition and health needs of the children affected by the Flint Water Crisis.
THE FORMATION WORLD TOUR is Beyonce’s first solo tour since her ambitious Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in 2013.
The sold-out tour spanning two years and five continents thrilled nearly two million fans and was hailed by critics worldwide. During the summer of 2014, Beyonce and JAY Z launched the six-week ON THE RUN Tour, playing major stadiums in the US.
They ended the tour in Paris, France in September 2014 with two additional dates that were filmed for an HBO Special that was nominated for an Emmy Award.
