After nearly two weeks of speculation, the most powerful couple in music (and one of the most influential people in the world) have confirmed that they will indeed be spending the summer together on stage at various stadiums across the United States and Canada. Starting on June 25 in Miami, Jay Z and Beyoncé will be taking their On The Run tour to the people.
Various fan club members and VIPs can start buying tickets early on April 29, with the general on-sale for the bulk of the dates launching on May 2. It’ll be interesting to see how the shows operate. Will they both have their own sets with a bunch of duets in the middle? Will they be like the Watch the Throne shows where the two of them will hand off the baton all night? And does anybody remember what “Part II (On the Run),” the Magna Carta Holy Grail track that gave the tour its name, actually sounds like?
Jay and Bey will be rolling through some pretty huge rooms, including the AT&T Stadium in Dallas. The tour wraps up on August 5, which will give Jay plenty of time to take care of the last minute details for his Made In America Festival, which will run in both Philadelphia and Los Angeles over Labor Day weekend.
