Beyonce and Jay Z will spend the summer performing live on stage, headlining their first tour together. Live Nation Entertainment issued the official announcement Monday (April 28), for the couple’s upcoming "On The Run Tour: Beyonce and Jay-Z”.
Confirming the New York Post’s report earlier this month of a tentative “Mr. and Mrs. Carter” tour, Beyonce and Jay-Z's "On The Run Tour" will kick off on June 25 in Miami at Sun Life Stadium. Bey and Jay will tour North America over the summer including 14 major cities across the U.S and 2 in Canada.
To grab tickets to catch the “Drunk In Love” duo live on stage this summer, fans may want to take advantage of pre-sale tickets. Beyonce Fan Club members will have exclusive access to an advance ticket pre-sale beginning Tuesday, April 29. The BeyHive pre-sale starts at 8 a.m. local time and each fan club member is given their own personal pre-sale code.
If you miss out on the BeyHive pre-sale and you happen to be a Chase credit or debit cardholder, you’re in luck. Another exclusive opportunity to buy tickets for Beyonce and Jay-Z’s "On The Run Tour" will present itself on April 29 starting at 10 a.m. local time.
Chase customers will be able to purchase tickets that day until 10 p.m. including access to Chase Lounge VIP ticket packages. A non-exclusive window to get tickets for the "On The Run" stadium tour will continue until May 1, 10 p.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 2 at Live Nation’s official Website and via the Live Nation Mobile app.
The “On The Run Tour” highlights Beyonce and Jay-Z’s philanthropic efforts through their individual charities, #BeyGOOD and the Shawn Carter Foundation, respectively. The tour, in partnership with #BeyGOOD will donate $1 from each ticket sale to the Shawn Carter Foundation. Chase is also donating a portion of Chase Lounge VIP ticket sales to the Shawn Carter Foundation.
Beyonce’s #BeyGOOD global charity encourages individuals to be kind, charitable and involved with their local communities. Over 2 million fans have helped to raise awareness and resources for causes that they deem important. Jay-Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation helps those who face economic hardships to further their education through its scholarship fund. The Foundation offers additional support for students who are “on the run” to greatness in the form of yearly college tours, study abroad experiences, counseling initiatives and toy and meal drives during the holidays.
According to the official "On The Run Tour" itinerary, the 16 city tour includes major cities such as Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Atlanta, New Orleans and Beyonce’s hometown of Houston. In July, the Carters will bring their tour to Canada for shows in Toronto and Winnipeg. The “On The Run Tour” is expected to run until August 5, with the final show taking place in San Francisco’s AT&T Park, as per a news release to Examiner.
Although Beyonce and Jay-Z have made surprise appearances at each other’s individual concerts, the “On The Run Tour” marks the couple’s first official collaborative tour. Fans in London got a surprise during Beyonce's “Mrs. Carter Show” world tour last month when Jay-Z joined his wife on stage to perform his verse on Beyonce's hit song, “Drunk In Love”.
Combined, Beyonce and Jay-Z have sold over 300 million records worldwide and have earned 36 Grammy awards. Check out the official video for the power couple's duet, "Drunk In Love" in this article, one of the songs that we can expect them to perform live on stage this summer.
