Beyoncé’s Super Bowl Halftime Show
First Beyoncé put all her critics to rest when she opened up her Super Bowl press conference belting out the National Anthem. Then, Queen B wowed viewers as she took the stage for an 8-song Super Bowl halftime show which included a brief stint with Destiny’s Child. Fans took to twitter calling Bey’s performance ‘MVP of Super Bowl XLVII.’ (If you are a fan of GIFs, check out this summary of the Super Bowl halftime show in GIFs). Seconds into the second half of the Super Bowl the lights to the Superdome went out – was Beyoncé’s halftime show too electrifying for the stadium? Jay-Z quickly reacted on twitter: “Lights out!!! Any questions??” Big statement for a big time performance.
According to Billboard, the Feb. 3 performance boosted Beyonce and Destiny’s Child album sales by 40%.

Many expected Beyoncé to plug an announcement of a Tour or perform her alleged new single during halftime; but instead, she waited until after her performance to announce dates for a World Tour- The Mrs. Carter Show. The World Tour includes 27 stops (second show recently added in Washington DC, Brooklyn, East Rutherford, and Los Angeles) in North America and will open in Los Angeles June 28th following 24 shows in Europe.
