Beyonce Formation World Tour tickets surpass one million; more shows announced

Following her appearance at last week’s Super Bowl 50, Beyonce surprised fans around the world with the announcement of The Formation World Tour. The highly-anticipated tour, promoted by Live Nation, presented by American Express and produced by Parkwood Entertainment sold nearly one million tickets over the weekend and has confirmed that the concerts in London, Sunderland, Manchester, Amsterdam, Dublin & Stockholm as well as her shows in Miami, Dallas, Toronto, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Los Angeles, and both performances scheduled at Citi Field in New York City are completely sold out.

Due to overwhelming demand, second shows have now been confirmed for May 28th at Soldier Field in Chicago and on July 3rd at London’s Wembly Stadium. Tickets for the May 28th concert in Chicago will go on sale on Thursday, February 25th. Beyhive members will have an opportunity to purchase advance tickets starting Wednesday, February 17th at 10 a.m. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets Wednesday, February 17th at 12 p.m. through Sunday, February 21st at 5 p.m.

Tickets for London Performance, July 3rd at Wembley Stadium will go on sale on Tuesday, February 23rd at 9 a.m. Beyhive members will have a second opportunity to purchase advance tickets starting Wednesday, February 17th at 9 a.m. GMT. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets starting Wednesday, February 17th at 12 pm through Sunday, February 21st at 5 p.m. As previously announced, tickets for the additional concert dates in North America and Europe go on sale Monday, February 22nd – complete itinerary follows.

True to her life’s work of always giving back, fans will be given the opportunity to participate in Beyoncé’s #BeyGOOD initiative supporting local United Way programs and the continued work surrounding the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. United Way of Genesee County has been at the forefront of distributing thousands of filtration pitchers, faucet mount filters, replacement cartridges and truckloads of water to underserved populations to address immediate needs in Flint Michigan. They are also partnering with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to create a fund that will address long-term developmental, education, nutrition and health needs of the children affected by the Flint Water Crisis.

As Beyoncé wants to present her fans with the best possible experience at the concerts, she has joined forces with THX Ltd to provide the highest quality audio experience during The Formation World Tour. THX has assessed, optimized and certified that the acoustic systems used at the concerts are without peer. With this association, concert-goers will get the best acoustic experience possible at any large-venue event.

The Formation World Tour is Beyonce’s first solo tour since her ambitious Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in 2013. The sold-out tour spanning two years and five continents thrilled nearly two million fans and was hailed by critics worldwide. During the summer of 2014, Beyonce and Jay Z launched the six-week On The Run Tour, playing major stadiums in the US. They ended the tour in Paris, France in September 2014 with two additional dates that were filmed for an HBO Special that was nominated for an Emmy Award.

“American Express has a longstanding relationship with Beyoncé and we are thrilled to partner with her again for the upcoming 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.”
