In case you missed the news that flitted across the screen after Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance with Coldplay and Bruno Mars, she’s heading out on tour in a couple of months.
Her “Formation World Tour” launches April 27 in Miami and will visit Atlanta a few days later, May 1, at the Georgia Dome.
Tickets for the Atlanta date (as well as shows in Raleigh and Nashville) will go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 22 via all Ticketmaster outlets, www.ticketmaster.com, www.livenation.com and by calling 1-800-745-3000. Tickets are $40-$275.
Several pre-sales are available, including for members of her BeyHive fan club at 10 a.m. Feb. 15 and for American Express cardholders, beginning at noon Feb. 15.
On Saturday, Beyonce dropped the surprise single “Formation” (produced by Atlanta’s Mike Will Made It) to preface her Super Bowl appearance and tour announcement.
This Formation tour, which will wind through Europe in June and July, is Beyonce’s first solo tour since 2013’s Mrs. Carter Show. In 2014, she and husband Jay Z went “On the Run” for six weeks of shows, including a July 2014 performance at the Georgia Dome.
