Sounding more like a blockbuster summer film than a concert tour, music's No. 1 power couple announced their first-ever leg of joint headlining dates earlier Monday morning. From June 16 to August 5, Jay Z and Beyonce will bring their "On the Run" tour to16 of the nation's football stadiums and baseball parks, with Houston's Minute Maid Park penciled in for July 18.
Read, and be awed: "300 million records worldwide...36 Grammys...2 philanthropists...1 tour...1 stage...this summer."
Dramatic, right? Presented by financial-services heavyweight Chase, the tour comes with an array of presale options. Chase customers will have access to an exclusive window from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. tomorrow, which continues non-exclusively through 10 p.m. Thursday. Members of Beyonce's fan club will have a two-hour head start, with their window beginning.
Tickets for the general public go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday, May 2, via Live Nation's mobile app at livenation.com.
