Beyoncé and Jay-Z Announce Summer 2014 ‘On the Run’ Tour
The current power couple of pop music, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, have FINALLY confirmed they’ll be hitting the road this summer. Blue Ivy Carter’s parents will kick things off at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami on May 25. Then, after a show in Cincinnati on May 28, it’s a leg through the Northeast with stops in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Toronto. The duo will then head South, hitting Atlanta on June 15, Houston on June 18, New Orleans on June 20, and Dallas on June 22. From there, it’s a couple stops in middle of the continent (Chicago and Winnipeg), before Bey & J hit the West coast, playing Safeco Field in Seattle on June 30, the Rose Bowl in LA on August 2, and their final show at AT&T Park in San Francisco on August 5.
For those who’ve been living under a rock for the past decade: Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is the former lead singer of the 1990s R&B group Destiny’s Child, who since going solo has sold over 100 million records worldwide and earned 17 Grammys. Following the release of her fifth-studio album, 2014’s Beyoncé, she was officially named the highest-earning black musician EVER. Her husband, Shawn Carter, AKA Jay-Z, is arguably one of the best-selling rappers of all time, earning over a dozen Grammys for some of hip-hop’s most seminal albums while also creating a secondary career as a business mogul.
