Beyonce has decided to extend her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, adding three British dates.
Just hours after the biggest performance of her career at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on February 3, Beyonce announced on her website that she would be embarking on a world tour starting April 15.
Beyonce, 31, had been due to play eight English shows in April and May, but following popular demand when tickets went on pre-sale this morning, she has now added three more gigs to her tour.
Her previously-announced dates will remain the same.
Beyonce’s UK itinerary now includes appearances at London’s The O2 on 4 and 5 May, and the Manchester Arena on May 9.
This brings Beyonce’s total number of shows in London to six and Manchester to three.
Beyonce will also perform two gigs in Birmingham.
Tickets for all 11 UK concerts go on general sale on Saturday, February 23.
The title of her globetrotting performances was first leaked on February 1.
The tour’s namesake, Mrs. Carter Show, is a nod to Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z – whose real name is Shawn Carter.
It is rumored that Jay-Z might make a few surprise appearances on stage with his wife for the highly anticipated shows.
The tour is set to be kicked off in Belgrade, Serbia on April 15 and the European leg comes to an end in Stockholm, Sweden, on May 29.
Beyonce will then take a month’s break before returning to the stage at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on June 28.
The singer will end the tour on August 3 in her spouse’s hometown of Brooklyn, New York.
The final show will take place at the newly-built Barclay’s Centre, which Beyonce owns a share of.
The tour farewell performance will not only be sentimental for her husband but for Beyonce as well.
It will be a true homecoming for the mother-of-one, who along with Jay-Z rents out a basement suite at the Barclay for $1 million per year.beyonce, Jay-Z, mrs carter show, uk concerts
