The moment that Beyoncé‘s new song “Formation” dropped on Saturday, fans knew something big was coming at the Super Bowl. And so when halftime rolled around Sunday night, Bey’s faithful swooned at her outfit and moves.
What many fans could not have expected was the imminent unveiling of Queen B’s “Formation” world tour, which hits 37 cities beginning with Miami on April 27. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Feb. 9. But District-dwellers may be disappointed to learn that Beyoncé won’t be stopping at Verizon Center or Echo/Arena stages. Did we get snubbed?
Putting those feelings of FOMO aside, there’s nothing stopping fans from putting some hot sauce in their bag, swag, and shipping up to any of the other major East Coast cities hosting Beyoncé come June, the closest being Baltimore.
- June 3 – Boston, MA – Gillette Stadium
- June 5 – Philadelphia, PA – Lincoln Financial Field
- June 7 – New York, NY – Citi Field
- June 10 – Baltimore, MD – M&T Bank Stadium
- June 12 – Hershey, PA – Hersheypark Stadium
Which, for now, leaves City Desk feeling a couple things: That perhaps there’s a solid reason to give credence to the New York-D.C. inferiority complex and that B-more’s “move here because it’s cheaper!” campaign has real benefits.
Good luck getting tickets: Bey’s website (yes, beyonce.com) still seems to be down after her disciples overwhelmed it on Sunday night.
That’s right, they slayed it.
