Beyonce Announces ‘The Formation World Tour’

Published: Sunday 7th Feb 2016 by Sam

Beyonce fans, it’s time to get in ‘Formation’ at the box office.

The superstar diva has formally announced her 2016 world tour. Aptly, it’s titled ‘The Formation World Tour’ after her newly released song of the same name.

Kicking off in North America this Summer, the trek serves as singer’s first stadium concert series solo.

It follows her 2014 ‘On The Run Tour’ with husband Jay Z and the mega-grossing ‘Mrs. Carter Show’ (which ran 2013 into ’14).

The concert announcement comes one day after the 34-year-old made the “world stop” at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show with Bruno Mars and Coldplay.

Are you ready to be entertained?!

Details below…

The 40-date tour begins April 27th.

Tickets will go on sale next week, starting with an Amex pre-sale. The tour’s 40 shows will be split fairly evenly between North America and the U.K. and Europe, with Canada and the U.S. to run through mid-June. The U.K./Europe leg will start in mid-June and run through July.

      Rihanna’s albums would still be selling this time of the year, where is Beyonce? Surfboarding away from the charts?

    • FC/JC February 7, 2016

      Girl you so bitter, Just chill for one got damn day…..
      As If Rihanna would have done a better job….. The Halftime show was already Boring without Beyonce, If it were fRihanna up there they would have went to sleep….
      Im sure the viewers will be more than Katy’s last year.

    • You tried February 7, 2016


    • trellbeylike February 7, 2016

      Lol damn 1st again

    • BeyBarbFenty February 7, 2016

      you’re always so angry about Beyonce. calm the hell down, please.

    • SWISH February 7, 2016

      you are really out of your mind if you can’t see how great her performance was. you don’t want people to talk about Rihanna yet you come in a beyonce article and talk like this. no wonder I see you getting dragged all through the comments.

  2. Weezy Tha Goat February 7, 2016

    Her team is on point man ???. Come thru Queen!!!

  3. HailBeysus February 7, 2016


    • Mariah February 7, 2016

      Almost fell?
      Skipped some grades much?
      Almost FALL… Is what I believe you were looking for. #YoureWelcome

    • February 7, 2016

      Omg Im so attending the Rose Bowl date!!!! Kiiii i thought she couldn’t do STADIUMS GAVEEEY!?!?!? SEETH MATHAGUCKAS SEEEETH!!!!!! Expect more dates especially in EUROPE she will sell out! OMG!!!!!

      @Mariah please refrain from commenting in future threads of mine. I have no time for irrelevant has been fan bases. #ThankYou?

  4. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 7, 2016

    Bey killed the performance with Bruno. How you are going to steal the show from the actual headliners tho

  5. LB February 7, 2016

    That has to be the most disorganized messiest half-time show I’ve ever seen.

    Everything was going great with Coldplay until Giselle ghetto-ed it up.

    And it’s obvious the b1tch doesn’t know how to share. She made it all about her instead of Coldplay.

    • Cough Cough February 7, 2016

      That’s your way of consigning the greatness….!!!! We know girl, she did the damn thing- we know.

    • KingIntrovert February 7, 2016

      Oh b**** roll over and f***** die! Ol hating ass heroine addict c***. It anything is disorganized its your favs career.

    • Okayyyy February 7, 2016

      Lmaoooo, this fool just admitted the greatness. If YOU believe that it was indeed “all about her” and that Beyonce was able to make it all about her when she was sharing the stage with two other huge artists, you must think much more highly of her than you let on.

    • You tried February 7, 2016

      You are tired and one of BEYONCES BIGGEST FANS! I think you were the first to comment on FORMATIONS Video premiere! You have those FanClub Notifications on that BoostMobile phone you got ??? when your fav can get INVITED to perform at such a huge EVENT the. There’s a conversation you MAY have! Carry on

    • FORMATION IS RHYTHM NATION ’16 (Lana Del Fan) February 7, 2016

      There’s a KKK meeting after the show to further degrade Cam. You can mention Beyoncé when you show up, dusty old kuhnt.

    • Metzo February 7, 2016

      @LB im glad you liked the show. You still excited i see aww

  6. #Beautiful February 7, 2016

    This is going to be crazy!

  7. Weezy Tha Goat February 7, 2016

    Beyonce and Bruno Mars killed that performance. I just can’t with the slayage. I need some oxygen.

    • FORMATION IS RHYTHM NATION ’16 (Lana Del Fan) February 7, 2016

      Bruno lowkey snatched my natural curls. His dancing was on point!!!. And Beyoncé was thicker than twenty five snickers.

    • Okayyyy February 7, 2016

      Yussss, I was not checking for Bruno at all, but he was really entertaining!! I was not expecting him to slay like that.

  8. Dee February 7, 2016

    She almost fell!!!!!!!

    We kept rewinding it.. Lolllolol.

    • FORMATION IS RHYTHM NATION ’16 (Lana Del Fan) February 7, 2016

      -What lowlife underachievers say

    • black heart people February 9, 2016

      I thought I was the only one seeing that

  9. FC/JC February 7, 2016

    Yall had this pre-written?
    Damn that was quick
    Anyway I have to go see this girl this time around!

  10. ?Queen Molly? February 7, 2016

    Death she wont let Rihanna live ???

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 7, 2016

      NEXT! Nobody cares. Have a seat.

      • ?Queen Molly? February 7, 2016

        Lets not do this in this post thanks

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 7, 2016

        Oh, so now you wanna be civil? You instigated this entire beef and now you wanna play nice? B**** shut up!

      • ?Queen Molly? February 7, 2016

        Honey im a lady I can always keep it civil. Its not the time to start another fight lets just celebrate Queen Bey thanks.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 7, 2016

        I honestly don’t care what you do. Just make sure its done OUTSIDE of my reply section the next time you decide to it * holds up peace sign and fades out*

    • Flopound February 7, 2016

      Why even mention her? Did you not listen to formation?

  11. LB February 7, 2016

    Supposed to be Coldplay’s day, not Giselle day. Chris Martin’s band will hate him big time for this.

    • Weezy Tha Goat February 7, 2016

      It’s not his fault Beyonce outshined his little band.

      • LB February 7, 2016

        He should have never invited her to begin with.

        Coldplay has got some amazing music, they can stand on their own two feet.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 7, 2016

      I know. I’d be pissed. No one will go to sleep thinking about no damn Coldplay that’s for sure.

      • LB February 7, 2016

        Chris f***** up

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 7, 2016

      Don’t start hating just because Beyonce knows how to market herself b****. She DID THAT!

  12. Everyone’s A Critic February 7, 2016

    BEYONCE and Bruno saved that show which I don’t think showcased Coldplays hit filled discography. And why would the not cease the opportunity to push their collab??

    Anywhooo This formation tour better be supporting a new album because if it ain’t… I’m not paying to see Mrs Carter show + formation

  13. Miss Jones February 7, 2016

    But wait! I thought Bey couldn’t do stadium tours? I thought she was only an “arena artist”. It must suck to be a Beyonce hater these days. I mean, you really have to TRY.

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig February 7, 2016

      Okay hunny! you tell ’em! #Formation

  14. Cough Cough February 7, 2016

    Yyyyyes I can’t! She slated the fuüûck outta that super bowl!

  15. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 7, 2016

    So she’s going on tour with no music to perform! She’s officially a circus act, but hey walk that stroll and get your bills

    • Everyone’s A Critic February 7, 2016

      That’s rich coming from a navy considering you BARELY got your album and the tour was announced YONKS before the album was even complete.

      *DROPS MIC*

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 7, 2016

        Rihanna has a plethora of hits to perform outside of the ANTI. Beyonce on the other hand only has her dancing to rely on.

    • LB February 7, 2016

      She’s got that fried chicken song out, I think that’s what she is naming her circus act tour after.

      • Everyone’s A Critic February 7, 2016


  16. BangBang February 7, 2016

    I’m getting tickets to her new tour!!!!!! Bring it on b 🙂

  17. Tyler Makiavelli February 7, 2016

  18. MsYonce February 7, 2016

  19. ?Queen Molly? February 7, 2016

  20. RICHIE_RICH February 7, 2016

  22. Blue Ivy Rod February 7, 2016

    Beyonce and Bruno did a great job, I was entertained.

  23. Cinnamon Girl February 7, 2016

    Poor Riri! She wasn’t ready!

  24. ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 7, 2016

    Just like I thought. Coldplay was overshadowed to Hell and back. They’ll be mad and regret it later on, though. Lol!

    I wanna buy tickets so bad, but I already used my funds on Rih’s Tour. I know they’re going to sell out those stadiums SO DAMN FAST! IM FREAKING PISSED! Why did she have to slay double hard so good? I didn’tt even notice her about to fall.

    • BeyBarbFenty February 7, 2016

      you’re really upset over this, huh?

  30. Everyone’s A Critic February 7, 2016

    Slay: When you’re already killing it but you have a slight mishap when hitting that drop but you manage to hop backwards in heels to stop falling.
    In a sentence: I SLAY, I SLAY. ALL DAY, I SLAY, BEY SLAY

  31. BeyRihLiyah February 7, 2016

    Beyonce has done it again!!! The queen of the stage shut the superbowl down again coldplay who? And bruno did his thing as well

  32. lulu February 7, 2016


  33. Blue Ivy Rod February 7, 2016

    Beyonce and Bruno should have done a song with Coldplay and Coldplay should picked much more upbeat songs to perform. Superbowl is about energy and fun, they are exceptional artists but they were boring me with their performance I was even begging Kanye to come out and do his infamous dragging.

    I think they should pick artists who have a lot of hits or stage presence that can get the crowd moving not some boring mess

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 7, 2016

      “stage presence that can get the crowd moving not some boring mess”???

      You stan for Rihanna…
      She’s arguably one of the worst live performers out right now. What would you know about stage presence????

      • Blue Ivy Rod February 8, 2016

        Listen here you pressed Phage, I don’t give two s***’s. I’m not here for this petty back and forth anymore. yes you’re right, Rihanna is not a performer like Bey but Bey got nothing the performers who could actually sell like MJ or Janet. Also Rihanna sells more than your fave and is sitting with legends, we do not care. I don’t know why you sitring in my reply section when I praised Bey for a great performancevening, like dude.. GET A F****** LIFE. instead always throwing u necessary shade or hate

  34. RihYonce February 7, 2016

    If this conflicts with my ANTI tour tickets !! Rihanna is cancelled ??? SLAY Queen !!

  35. Mariah February 7, 2016

    I was ready for an album.

  36. LB February 7, 2016

    Anyway gone to fill my iTunes library with more Coldplay music, loved to relive some of their songs, it was wonderful until he brought the hood to the fancy black-tie party.

    It was like all of the sudden they stopped serving champagne and Caviar to 40s and Popeyes with hot sauce.

    Always loved Coldplay music and will support them nonetheless even though Chris Martin f***** his band over with this one.

  37. Tyler Makiavelli February 7, 2016

    But LooseBooty, I thought 2016 was supposed to be Rihanna’s “Ray of Light” moment???? What happened???


    • Truth February 8, 2016

      IKR. The “Formation” song by itself stomps all over ANTI.

  38. shakira stan February 7, 2016

    The performance was horrid ,Beyonce was dancing like an excorcist …..worst super bowl half time ever .

    • Rosie February 7, 2016

      Mad because Shakira can’t even book Univision in the US.

      • shakira stan February 7, 2016

        Waiting for zootopia to out gross everymmovie that illiterate has been in.

      • Rosie February 7, 2016

        Death att you clinging to Disney movies. No one gives a f*** about Shakira being in Zootopia or w/e.
        Stay in your lane and don’t come for anyone who can open with over 100K (or 90K, at that) in the US.

    • MsYonce February 7, 2016

      @LB There’s no need for you to be using your troll account it ain’t that serious ?

    • FORMATION IS RHYTHM NATION ’16 (Lana Del Fan) February 7, 2016

      Shakiras vocals sound like drunk sehx though so what are you saying?

  39. What now February 7, 2016

    We all know I’m no fan, but this bih slayed that SB performance. Bruno outshined Coldplay too. To me, Coldplay was not needed.

  40. Everyone’s A Critic February 7, 2016

    All I can hear is that infectious beat from Formation. You know that twangy sound from the intro..
    It makes me wanna put on my best outfit and Jerry curl my hair and strut the streets of London with some boots and a beat face and SLAY betches!!!

  41. LB February 7, 2016

    @Blue Ivy Rod
    Nah, Coldplay did fine. Didn’t you see the crowd was living for their songs even before Giselle and Bruno Mars came on stage.

    That said, Bruno Mars did a better job at respecting the fact that this is a Coldplay show and not his show, he held back.

    Giselle literally used Coldplay and made it all about her, even pushing Chris Martin to the back of the stage, who does that?

  42. shakira stan February 7, 2016

    And the hives dared to say that anti roll out was messy …this one is shaping up to be messier only without the hits .
    All the fat b**** cares about is milking her illiterate fans dry …no iTunes or album release but has already announced a world tour.

    • Anti460 February 7, 2016

      She did it in 2013 and BEYONCE was successfull so …

    • BeyBarbFenty February 7, 2016

      beyonce can actually afford to do things like this, though.

      glad to see the goat stan fuming about beyonce, as usual.

  43. Rosie February 7, 2016

    yesss at these STADIUMS. May 25th I’m ready.
    Literally no one is talking about Coldplay. They sucked. Stop being delusional. Bey and Bruno stole the show.

    • King B February 7, 2016

      Hey. Not sure why u don’t like them. I think they are great?

  44. Anti460 February 7, 2016

    The show was good ! period. I’m a Navy but the truth is the truth for now ,Rihanna can’t bring a show like this … Bruno it’s the best male performer he can dance , he can sing ! They both did better at their show !
    Coldplay was really boring and Chris Martin can’t sing for s*** i mean even Ciara it’s way better .

    Rihanna have to show next sunday that she “worth the wait” as she said because this years the competition gonna be too serious

  45. Sherrele February 7, 2016

  53. J-TONE February 7, 2016

  54. Stephon Jackson February 7, 2016

    I Will Be Going! Best Believe Dat! #QueenBey

  55. DD1G February 7, 2016

    Ugh. Beyoncé should have put Formation on iTunes. I feel like the song had the potential to skyrocket up the charts after this performance but it’s on wack ass Tidal for free.

  56. Avi February 7, 2016

    LOL@LB. Sad little lifeless creature doesn’t know what to do with itself with Beyoncé once again owning the Internet. There is no escape, is there? What’s the matter, is ANTI not comforting enough to sooth your frayed nerves? Or does listening to it just remind you of how much it has failed and all the mercelious dragging both it and you have endured during these past few weeks. Ha! Poor you. Laughing at your misery! ?

  57. BEY>RIH February 8, 2016

    Yassss Bitxh!! And kii at loosebottom seething as usual.

  58. polmady1 February 8, 2016


  59. snapchat: CallMeUrban February 8, 2016

    is it really a world tour if only Europe and US dates are mentioned. That is BS. What about us in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, India, Dubai, Kenya, Nigeria! come on B

  60. yesterday was Aaliyah 37birthday to the good music February 8, 2016

    Fans will buy the tickets to go see her performance in those states good for beyonce Carter
