Mr. and Mrs. Carter has officially announced their first official tour together, the “On The Run” tour kicking off this summer.
Mr. and Mrs. Carter also known as, Beyoncé and Jay Z, have officially announced they will be touring together for the first time this summer. Collaborative effects of the power couple will possible make their “On The Run,” tour the most anticipated event of the year. Mrs. Carter taking to her web page, while Mr. Carter posted on Facebook, both announced the tour to fans leaving them tapping their feet in anticipation for ticket sells.
Between the two of them, they unveiled the official poster along with information on ticket sales and tour dates and cities. The tour will open in Miami, Florida on June 25, 2014 and end on the fifth of August in San Francisco, California. Exclusive for Beyoncé’s fan club, “Beyhive,” ticket pre-sale will begin at 8a.m. on April 29, 2014, with the general public will have to wait until Friday, May 2, 2014 to purchase theirs.
The official poster displays the couple hugging each other with ski masks covering their faces, mirroring their first track collaboration ’03 Bonnie & Clyde, before they were destined to be Mr. and Mrs. Carter. That collaboration led to at nine more at least, including Upgrade U, Hollywood, Drunk in Love, and Crazy in Love, and started the dynastic that everyone sees today.
The power couple first hinted on the idea of touring together back in early April, but after Jay Z publicly announced his 2014 “Made in America” music festival would be playing in both Philadelphia and Los Angeles, fans were quickly disappointed. Luckily for fans, the element of surprise is apart of the family business and the “On The Run” tour with Mr. and Mrs. Carter, is definitely happening.
Long before they tied the knot back in 2008, both dominated the music industry; Beyoncé while with Destiny’s Child and her solo album, Jay Z solo and also in collaboration with each other. Their latest release Drunk in Love, although controversial still landed at No. 1.
With the “On the Run” tour, they plan on giving something back to the community. For every ticket sold they will contribute a dollar from the sale to support Shawn Carter Foundation, which helps groups that would otherwise be unable to go to college. It is also being presented in part by Beyonce’s #BeyGOOD campaign, which pushes to encourage charitable acts, kindness, and community involvement.
Beyoncé was just made the cover of Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People, an honor her husband took last year, it seems the power couple never take a break. She just finishing wrapping her tour and Jay Z toured last year with Justin Timberlake, which raising their now two-year-old daughter. The couple does not seem to be stopping anytime soon and this tour is just another notch on their belts.
Considered Hip Hop’s royal couple, this tour is long over due, hitting 13 cities across America; rumors began to surface of the Fourth of July stop in New York City, even though New York is not listed under the tour date. Nevertheless, with there being no dates scheduled between the July first and July fifth shows there is still time and still hope that Mr. and Mrs. Carter will be setting off fireworks in NYC.
