Beyoncé pre-sale concert tickets available Monday
Beyoncé, who surprised the Internet with her new single and video “Formation” on Saturday and who performed with Coldplay at halftime of Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, has another surprise in store for fans: She’ll perform at Ford Field on May 29, her reps announced Sunday night.
The show is part of a stadium tour the superstar announced on the tails of her Super Bowl appearance. Along with the announcement came word of Beyoncé’s plans to support victims of Flint’s water crisis.
Fans will be given the chance to support the program, part of her #BeyGOOD initiative, which will benefit local United Way programs, the United Way of Genesee County and the Community Foundation of Grater Flint with the goal of addressing “long-term developmental, education, nutrition and health needs” of children affected by the water issues in Flint.
Further details of the program weren’t disclosed, but fans are asked to follow @beygood on Twitter for more information.
Tickets for the Ford Field show — which is just 16 Sundays away, if you’re keeping count — go on sale through FordField.com on Feb. 22, with pre-sales for members of Beyoncé’s Beyhive and American Express cardholders starting on Feb. 15. Fans can sign up for pre-sale information through the Detroit Lions’ website here. Prices are TBA.
The concert is Beyoncé’s first area concert since her Mrs. Carter Show tour hit The Palace of Auburn Hills in July 2013.
Beyoncé and Jay Z’s joint On the Run Tour, which made a North American stadium run in 2014, did not play Detroit.
Beyoncé surprised released her new single and video “Formation” on Saturday, and it racked up more than 7.9 million views on YouTube its first day.
The single and the tour announcement hint that a new album, Beyoncé’s first since her self-titled set was surprise-released in December 2013, is imminent, but there’s no word yet on its arrival.
