Beyonceâ€™s first multi-city tour in more than three years will include a stop in Charlotte, officials with the â€śMrs. Carter Show World Tourâ€ť announced on Feb. 4.
Beyonce, the feature act during the Feb. 3 Super Bowl halftime show and a headline-maker for her rendition of the National Anthem during President Obamaâ€™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 Arenaâ€™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 Londonâ€™s O2 Arena.
The first show in the United States is June 28 in Los Angeles.
Organizers say Beyonceâ€™s tour will be â€śbigger in scopeâ€ť 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 hasnâ€™t been on the road since her â€śI Am Worldâ€ť 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. : :
