Have a seat.
The Bey and Jay joint tour is happening.
Today, Tidal released the official announcement, stating that Jay and Bet will embark on a stadium tour beginning June 6 in Cardiff, UK. They’ll visit 21 cities in Europe, before returning to North America for an additional 21 cities.
Presented by Live Nation, Parkwood Entertainment and Roc Nation, tickets will go on sale to the general public on Monday, March 19! So soon. And, as Citi is the official sponsor of the tour, presale tickets for Citi cardholders will begin on March 14.
Members of the Beyhive and Tidal subscribers will also be able to pick up tickets on March 14 via Beyonce.com or Tidal.com. Clever.
Obviously, On The Run II is the sequel to the stadium tour the couple completed in 2014; it was later turned into an Emmy-nominated HBO special.
Oh and there might also be musical collaborations between the duo too? Jay has been saying in interviews promoting 4:44 that the pair had been working on a joint album before Beyoncé released Lemonade.
Honestly, this whole thing was rolled out pretty great!
We guess the idea was to “tease” fans and drum up interest (which, to be fair, worked), but it wasn’t befitting of the Carters. Good idea, poor execution, maybe?
Rumors of a possible joint tour started spinning around back in January, after Ebro in the Morning’s Laura Stylez claimed that Bey and Jay “might (this is a might) be announcing a tour” as soon as All-Star weekend.
Obviously, that wasn't quite on the money, but there you are.
Bey’s Facebook page (and the Ticketmaster site) reportedly then announced a tour date for something called On The Run 2, before promptly deleting the posts, not long ago. This happened AFTER a Ticketmaster page for the event was supposedly put up before being taken down.
The advertised show was set for July 30 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia; For Tidal users, tickets were to be on sale on March 6 while the public “onsale” was scheduled for March 12.
See how Beyoncé And Jay Z put Social Media in a tizzy after the announcement:
