It’s official! After much speculation (and wishing, hoping and praying on our part), hip-hop’s biggest and baddest couple will be “On the Run” this summer for a Mr. and Mrs. Carter joint tour.“On the Run” tickets are remarkably affordable when compared to the duo’s solo treks—which means they’ll go quicker than the fastest selling iTunes album ever, which happens to be Beyonce’s latest. Last year’s the “Mrs. Carter Show” averaged $322, while the “Magna Carter” tour averaged $233, and now, you can see both superstars on the same stage for just $194 on average! That’s 40% cheaper (and $128 less) than Bey’s world tour. You won’t be questioning whether or not Jay Z and Beyoncé tickets are a good deal, but you will be left wondering: do these two ever stop working?
Update 5/15/14: Don’t say we didn’t warn you! Following the addition of two Jay Z and Beyonce tour dates, prices for “On the Run” 2014 have shot up 44%. Extra shows have been added in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl (8/3/14) and in San Francisco at AT&T Park (8/6/14). While the entire tour average has gone up to $281, tickets for the second nights in Los Angeles and San Francisco are much cheaper than the first! Save over $100 (on average) when you buy On the Run tickets for the encore concert in San Francisco, and save $246 when you see Jay Z and Beyonce for their second Rose Bowl performance.
“On the Run’s” reveal was preceded by the announcement of Jay’s 2014 “Made In America” music festivals in Los Angeles and Philadelphia, diminishing hopes of the rumored tour in the process. Lucky for us, the pair dropped the news today. The stadium trek will take the tag-team across North American for 16 stops, kicking off in Miami on 6/25 and wrapping up in San Francisco on 8/5. While the two have shared the stage many a time, this will be the couple’s first-ever co-headlining jaunt. Tickets go on sale to the general public on May 2, but Chase cardholders and Beyoncé fan club members can take part in presales starting tomorrow.
