Beyoncé Formation Tour Kicks Off at Marlins Park

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Beyoncé knocked it out of the park last night at the Super Bowl halftime show. Alongside Coldplay and Bruno Mars, Queen B provided us with some much-needed comfort after Doritos forced us to watch a baby Superman his way out of his mother's vagina, presumably tearing her poor perineum to smithereens in the process. 

But the biggest news of the night didn't happen on stage. Almost immediately after the halftime show ended, Beyoncé announced the upcoming Formation world tour. The tour will take the 34-year-old music god to 40 stadiums and arenas around the globe, but it kicks off right here in Miami, at Marlins Park. 

The concert will take place on Wednesday, April 27, and presale tickets will be available on Tuesday, February 9. General public tickets will go up for sale at 10 a.m. on February 16 via ticketmaster.com. The price range for tickets is currently listed at $40 to $300 plus fees. 

The day before the Super Bowl, Beyoncé dropped her newest single, "Formation," a track that the sees her reaching previously unfathomable levels of ferocity. The last time Beyoncé came to Miami was in June of 2014 when she stopped by Sun Life Stadium during her On the Run Tour with husband Jay-Z. Support and opening acts have yet to be announced, though we're pretty sure we saw Bruno Mars slip his business card in Bey's pocket during the halftime show.


Whoever she brings along (or doesn't), this concert will be Miami's hottest ticket in 2016 — even in a year that will see both Adele and Justin Bieber come to the Magic City. Well into a career that started at 8 years old, Beyoncé is still the only singer that can dwarf the Super Bowl.
