Beyonce’s first multi-city tour in more than three years will include a stop in Charlotte, officials with the “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” announced Monday morning.
Beyonce, the feature act during Sunday evening’s Super Bowl halftime show and a headline-maker for her rendition of the National Anthem during President Obama’s inauguration, will perform July 27 at Time-Warner Cable Arena. That is a Saturday night.
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 15 at Time-Warner Cable Arena’s website, at the arena box office, and at all Ticketmaster outlets.
The tour begins April 15 with a number of stops in Europe, including four nights at London’s O2 Arena.
The first show in the United States is June 28 in Los Angeles.
Organizers say Beyonce’s tour will be “bigger in scope” than any of her previous tours. It will last nearly a year, with the second segment including concerts in Latin America, Australia and Asia. She hasn’t been on the road since her “I Am World” Tour in 2009. That tour attracted 1.1 million fans at 100-plus shows in 32 countries.
Beyonce has won 16 Grammy awards, with four No. 1 solo albums. She was honored by Billboard magazine as the Top Female Artist and Top Radio Song Artist of the decade from 2000 to 2009.
