Are Jay-Z And Beyoncé Going On Tour Again?
The internet blew up after Beyoncé announced "On The Run 2," a collaborative effort with her rapper-husband, Jay-Z, and a follow-up to their 2014 tour.
On Monday, March 5, a listing for the joint tour surfaced on the "Formation" singer's official Facebook page and on Ticketmaster. The tour, according to the post, will kickoff on July 30 at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
Presale of the tickets was set to begin on Wednesday, March 7, at 10 a.m. EST for subscribers of Jay-Z's music streaming service Tidal. The general public will be able to purchases tickets by March 12, reported Newsweek.
Mr. And Mrs. Carter Tour On-Hold
However, much to the dismay of many, the listing was pulled out of Queen Bey's Facebook and Ticketmaster minutes after it was published. Neither Beyoncé and Jay-Z nor Ticketmaster has offered an explanation as to what exactly happened or whether the tour even exists.
It is about time for music's biggest couple to revisit "On The Run." The first and last time that the two toured together was back in 2014 while they were promoting the albums Beyoncé and Magna Carta Holy Grail.
Jay-Z also appeared in the final stop of his superstar wife's "Lemonade" tour in September 2016 in New Jersey. Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled also performed during the show.
On The Run 2
Fans have been hoping for "On The Run 2" especially now that both husband and wife have a new album out. This year's tour could feature both Lemonade and 4:44.
Recently, the pair released a star-studded music video for the song "Family Feud" directed by Ava DuVernay of A Wrinkle in Time. It also featured appearances from Jessica Chastain, Thandie Newton, Rashida Jones, Rosario Dawson, Mindy Kaling, Constance Wu, Brie Larson, and more.
Although the song was about uniting the hip-hop and black communities, Jay-Z, in the music video, sat on a confessional booth with his wife on the other side. Many saw it as the rapper confessing to his infidelities.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z also collaborated with DJ Khaled and Future for the song "Top Off" from the upcoming album Father of Asahd.
The "Hold Up" singer in 2014 said that "On The Run" was the best tour that she ever made.
"Thank you San Fran! Your city is beautiful. It was the perfect place to complete the best tour of my life," she wrote on Instagram. "Thank you to all the fans that supported our show. God bless."
