Pair to play Detroit during joint On the Run 2 tour; tickets on sale at 10 a.m. Friday


Jay-Z and Beyoncé are On the Run again, and this time they’re heading to Detroit.

The hip-hop super couple will play Ford Field on Aug. 13, promoters announced Monday. Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

The concert is part of the pair’s On the Run 2 tour, the follow-up to their 2014 run of shows. The original tour played 19 North American dates but skipped Detroit.

Both Jay-Z and Beyonce have played Ford Field separately. Jay performed at the Detroit Lions’ home in Aug. 2013 during his co-headlining tour with Justin Timberlake, and Bey played Ford Field on her Formation World Tour in June 2016.

The On the Run 2 tour is rumored to be in support of a Jay-Z and Beyoncé joint album, which is said to be due out this summer, though the project has not been confirmed by either artist’s camp.

Bey’s last Detroit concert was her 2016 Formation show, while Jay-Z visited Little Caesars Arena in November on the tour behind his “4:44” album.
