Oh my gosh! We’ve been so wrapped up in Beyonce’s explosive new ‘Lemonade’ album that we nearly forgot that she’s kicking off a massive world tour on April 27! In case it slipped your mind as well, here are 5 things to know about Queen Bey’s ‘Formation World Tour.’
Okay ladies, now let’s get in formation! For Beyonce’s Formation World Tour, that is. All eyes have been on Bey since she dropped her shocking and insightful Lemonade album on April 23, and we’re sure that will only continued as her next-level tour gets underway on April 27. We have 5 things you need to know about it, right here!
1. Three charities are involved with the tour. Beyonce has enlisted the help of the United Way Worldwide, Chime for Change and Global Citizen to do some good with her tour. They will have a presence at each stop, plus fans who make a small donation to United Way will have a shot at VIP tickets. She will also do “special signature events” for fans in Compton, Detroit and Houston.
2. DJ Khaled is opening for Queen Bey. On April 19 he shared: “#MAJOR– alert Today I proudly announce a major milestone in my career. Today’s announcement is a major accomplishment in my life. In other words it’s a major achievement alert!!!! I am proud to announce that I, DJ Khaled will be on tour with the icon, Beyoncé!!!!!”
3. Fans had less than a week to memorize Bey’s new album! Lemonade dropped on April 23, just four days before the first tour stop! Fans were definitely worried that they wouldn’t know it well enough by the start of the tour. Keep binge listening, hive!
4. People are expecting some AMAZING guests! Though only DJ Khaled is confirmed, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd and James Blake were all featured on songs off of Lemonade. Kendrick also won’t be going on tour until July, and Bey’s ends in June so he could definitely make a few stops. Fingers crossed!
5. Tons of her tour dates are already sold out. Good luck getting tickets to Formation if you live in any major city! Miami, LA, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, New York, London and more are already long gone, so keep a close eye on the resale sites!
