Beyoncé’s The Formation World Tour launched last Wednesday in Miami and fans and media alike have been blown away by Queen B’s performance, songs and set.
Fans are treated to 30 plus songs including debut performances of “Sorry”, “Hold Up”, “Daddy Lessons” and “Freedom” from her recent release Lemonade as well as power hits “Run The World (Girls)”, “Drunk In Love”, “Single Ladies” and more. Massive video screens rotate and resonate, pyro explodes, and everyone experiences the stunning imagery.
Due to demand, Live Nation and Parkwood Entertainment have confirmed an additional seven North American Concert dates will follow the European tour leg in September and October. This includes another show in Houston!
A third New York area performance has been announced for September 7th in Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium followed by a second LA show at Dodger Stadium on September 14th. Second shows have been added in Santa Clara, Houston, Atlanta and Philadelphia and a new show confirmed in New Orleans on September 24th. Tickets for all performance go on sale Friday, May 13. Also announced today, the rescheduled Nashville concert at Nissan Stadium will take place on October 2nd. Tickets for the previously scheduled May 5 performance will be honored at the door.
Beyhive members will have an opportunity to purchase advance tickets starting Thursday, May 5th at 10:00 a.m. American Express ® Card Members can purchase before the general public tickets Friday, May 6th at 10:00 am local time through Wed. May 11 at 5:00 pm local time.
“American Express has a longstanding relationship with Beyoncé and we are thrilled to partner with her again for the upcoming The Formation World Tour,” said Walter Frye, Vice President, Global Experiential Marketing, American Express. “We are proud to bring our Card Members around the world closer to Beyoncé – a global icon and an artist we know they love – with access to purchase tickets for her tour before the general public.”
True to her life’s work of always giving back, Beyoncé has named three charities as global partners for The Formation World Tour. The alignment with the three organizations is designed to show fans how easy it is to give back, be involved in their communities, to be kind and at the core—to BeyGOOD. BeyGOOD was launched in 2013 during the Mrs. Carter World Tour as the charity umbrella for Beyoncé’s global charity initiatives. Millions received tangible help, employment, shelter and more on tour stops in North America, Australia, Europe, South America and the Caribbean as a direct effect of BeyGOOD’s efforts during this time.
United Way will have a presence on every tour stop on the North American leg of the tour.
CHIME FOR CHANGE and Global Citizen will have their online activation program for fans in select tour markets, including Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Detroit and London. In addition, there are three signature charity events in three cities; Houston, TX, Compton, CA and Detroit, Michigan.
There are three simple ways fans can participate in helping others along The Formation World Tour: online, in- community and on-site.
(1) Online – CrowdRise is in partnership with United Way to support the Flint Water Crisis where fans can make a small donation and qualify for an opportunity to win VIP tickets.
(2) In Community – United Way to support issues specific to each local tour market.
(3) On-site – by signing up to become a Global Citizen, along with CHIME FOR CHANGE, fans will have a chance to win tickets and upgrades at select tour dates.
