Beyoncé announces tour

2013-02-05 13:50
 
Los Angeles - Beyoncé has unveiled plans for a world tour.

The 31-year-old singer announced a string of dates for the "Mrs Carter Show" on her website shortly after her performance at the Superbowl halftime show on Sunday and the first show will take place in Belgrade, Serbia on 15 April.

The European dates - which include eight stops in the UK and Ireland between 29 April and 7 May - come to an end in Stockholm, Sweden, on 29 May, and the star will then take a month's break before returning to the stage at Los Angeles' Staples Centre on 28 June.

First tour since 2009

Beyoncé - who is married to Jay-Z aka Shawn Carter - will end the tour on 3 August in her spouse's hometown of Brooklyn, New York. The final show will take place at the newly-built Barclay's Centre, which the 99 Problems hitmaker owns a share of.

A tour poster was accidentally leaked on Friday, revealing the name of the shows, a day after Beyoncé teased she was planning something.

She said: "I may have an announcement after the performance. Fans should just stay tuned to see."

The shows mark Beyoncé’s first tour since 2009.
