Beyonce Extends The Formation World Tour 2016; Tickets Most Expensive in Recent History
There's no denying that Beyonce's 2016 Super Bowl Halftime stint earlier this month was one of the most talked about performances in recent history. While the show was certainly a strategic attempt to showcase not only her newest single, "Formation," and the world tour she announced shortly after the performance, it was also the perfect platform to impress fans with a sign of what her live performances will look like in 2016. With 111.9 million viewers tuning in for the big game, the 34-year-old star did just that, and Beyonce tickets for her Formation World Tour are some of the priciest the singer has seen in recent tour history. With already sold-out shows across the globe, including cities like Miami, Los Angeles, and New York City, Beyonce has extended the tour, according to a report from The Slanted.

The Formation World Tour will kick off on April 27 in Miami and will extend out in North America until June 14 when it wraps in Detroit. After a short break, Beyonce will take the tour overseas on June 28 where she'll hit a string of European cities until July 31. With so many sold out shows, tickets on the secondary market are averaging $353 for the tour, a number that clocks in as the most expensive average over the past few tours.
Following the general on-sale on February 16, the most expensive show is set to be her May 18 stop at CenturyLink Field in Seattle where tickets are averaging $741, with the cheapest ticket priced at $74. Beyonce's cheapest show is slated for her June 10 performance at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, where tickets are averaging $257, with the cheapest ticket priced at $71. Fans can make the Baltimore trip even more affordable by checking out flight deals through Hipmunk.com for most major airline carriers. Hipmunk also has hotels in the Baltimore area that start for as low as $59 per night, according to TiqIQ.
Beyonce's last tour, a 21-date trek called the On the Run Tour with husband Jay Z, launched in 2014 and hit similarly massive stadiums. Tickets for the entirety of that tour averaged $221 on the secondary market, with the highest price point in Chicago at Soldier Field. Beyonce's last solo trek, The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, launched in April 2013 and extended until March of 2014. Tickets for the tour averaged $297, with the highest price points in Boston, where tickets averaged a whopping $898, according to the TiqIQ database.
It's possible that as the tour draws closer and the recent Beyonce conversation dies down, tickets on the secondary market will drop slightly. Until then, fans can expect to pay a hefty price to see Beyonce this summer.
