Breaking News! Beyonce and Jay-Z announce ‘OTR II’ tour!
What better news could you recieve on a Monday?
Via Rolling Stone:
Following a series of rumors and retracted concert listings, Beyoncé and Jay-Z officially announced the OTR II stadium tour – a follow-up to their massive joint On the Run trek from 2014, which promoted the singer’s self-titled LP and the rapper’s Magna Carta Holy Grail.
Following a 15-date European leg in June, OTR II comes to North America beginning July 25th with a Cleveland concert. The 21-show North American leg concludes October 2nd in Vancouver. Tickets for the trek go on sale March 19th at Live Nation.
The Carters shared marquee billing for their original On the Run trek, named after Jay-Z’s song “Part II (On the Run),” which featured Beyoncé. Despite only performing 20 shows together, the husband and wife duo earned $95 million from the jaunt, the eighth-highest-grossing of 2014.
The powerful music couple reinvented their respective catalogs throughout the tour, including medleys, mash-ups and collaborations. They also marked the fifth anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death with a tribute sequence featuring a portion of the Jackson 5’s “ABC” weaved into Beyoncé’s “Love on Top.”
