Beyoncé‘s North American Tour Dates Announced
New York, NY -- Superstar and cultural icon Beyoncé is bringing her 2007 world tour to North America for a series of live concerts beginning Friday, July 6, at the Superdome in New Orleans. "The Beyoncé Experience brought to you by Samsung and L'Oréal Paris," kicks off April 10 in Tokyo and is currently set to run stateside through September (see itinerary following).
WeLoveBeyonce.com, the artist's official fan site, will host a two-week presale for Beyoncé's concerts in Ft. Lauderdale, Philadelphia, and Raleigh, on Thursday, April 5 at 10am (ET)/ 9am (CT). (The public on-sale for those three cities will take place the weekend of April 20.) VIP Concert Tour Packages will be available exclusively at welovebeyonce.com.
Further details on presales and public on-sales for other cities on Beyoncé's 2007 world tour itinerary will be available on her official fan site.
The most eagerly-anticipated tour of the year, "The Beyoncé Experience brought to you by Samsung and L'Oréal Paris" showcases the international music and film star, along with her sizzling all-female band, performing musical hits, classics, and surprises in a newly-created high-tech state-of-the-art concert environment.
Beyoncé recently set the all-time record for the biggest chart jump in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 when "Beautiful Liar," her superstar duet with Shakira, bulleted an unprecedented 91 slots (#94* to #3*) upward in a single week.
The first single from Beyoncé's B'DAY Deluxe Edition, "Beautiful Liar," an irresistible Latin/pop anthem of feminine empowerment, has also just entered Billboard's Hot Digital Songs and Hot Digital Tracks charts at #1.
Music World/Columbia Records will release Beyoncé's B'DAY Deluxe Edition, an expanded two-CD edition of the pop icon's best-selling Grammy-winning solo album, on Tuesday, April 3.
Also arriving on Tuesday, April 3 is Beyoncé's B'DAY Anthology Video Album. Available exclusively at Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the B'DAY Anthology Video Album includes Beyoncé's videos for "Kitty Kat (intro)"/"Greenlight," "Upgrade U" featuring Jay-Z, "Deja Vu," "Ring The Alarm," "Irreplaceable," "Listen," "Suga Mama," "Get Me Bodied," "Freakum Dress," "Flaws & All," "Kissing You" and "Beautiful Liar" featuring Shakira.
