LONDON, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
- The pop diva's Mrs. Carter tour is set to land on UK shores in April 2013
- Interest in tour tickets spikes following dazzling Super Bowl halftime performance
- Tickets available on the online ticket marketplace StubHub.co.uk
Hot on the heels of an explosive performance at the Super Bowl, performing a set that confirmed her status as today's preeminent R&B and pop superstar, Beyoncé has announced a slew of spring tour dates for Ireland and the UK. The "Mrs. Carter" tour, which takes its title from husband Jay-Z's (a.k.a. Shawn Carter) surname, is set to kick off on 26 April in Birmingham, wrapping up at Dublin's O2 on 12 May.
A promotional video directed by Jonas Akerlund debuted online recently, featuring a corset-clad Beyoncé with members of her tour crew in regal attire, set to a soundtrack of new music. "B", as she's often affectionately known by fans, also recently released new material with her former Destiny's Child bandmates, with whom she performed at the Super Bowl in New Orleans.
The glitzy halftime show led to a massive spike in online searches for Beyoncé tickets. Searches grew exponentially almost immediately following the Super Bowl broadcast, jumping even further once tour dates were announced. The singer also generated a healthy dose of press recently following a minor lip-syncing scandal at President Barack Obama's inauguration at the tail-end of January. However, her appearance at the Super Bowl - and the glowing reviews that followed her set - has seemingly erased any public questioning of her innate vocal talents.
Beyoncé's tour includes stops at London's O2 Arena on 29 and 30 April, and 1 and 3 May, before moving onto Manchester and ending at Dublin's O2 on 12 May.
The online ticket marketplace StubHub.co.uk expects a high degree of interest in the Mrs. Carter tour, with site traffic increasing in kind once tickets are released to the public on the morning of 23 February.
