After putting on a lights out halftime performance at the Super Bowl on Sunday night, Beyoncé didn't waste any time getting back to work. Shortly after reuniting with Destiny's Child during the game, Queen B announced the dates for her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, her first global outing since 2009's I Am ... World Tour.
The dates in support of her as-yet-unnamed upcoming fifth studio album were revealed on Beyonce's official website, and the tickets go on sale Monday, February 11. The run kicks off on April 15 with a show at the Kombank Arena in Belgrade, Serbia. The European leg includes a four-night stand at London's O2 Arena, winding up on May 29 with a show in Stockholm, Sweden before picking up again on June 28 with a show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles during the BET Experience event.
Mrs. Carter will stay on the road all summer, working her way across North America before winding down on August 3 at her family's second home, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. She has also been confirmed as the headliner at the Rock in Rio Fest in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on September 13.
Shortly after the halftime triumph, Bey posted an open letter on her tumblr in praise of her fellow Super Bowl performers. The handwritten note read: "What a proud day for African American women!!!! Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, Jhud. You are all beautiful, talented and showed so much class! It was an honor to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies, love Beyoncé."
