Beyoncé and Jay Z Are Coming to Boston for Their ‘On the Run’ Tour
Here’s a reason to freak the freak out. Beyoncé and Jay Z announced a summer tour today, dubbed the “On the Run” tour. (Because they’re Bonnie and Clyde! Get it?). The third stop on their 16-show tour will be at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough on July 1.
Those of you not in Beyoncé’s Fan Club better hop to it, because pre-sale tickets to the concert go on sale tomorrow, Tuesday morning at 8 a.m. Chase credit and debit card holders can buy tickets starting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, while the rest of world will have to wait until Friday, May 2.
Beyoncé and Jay Z’s tour will likely be the most epic concert the area has seen since, well, the last time Jay Z came to town. (last summer with Justin Timberlake). The power couple has always been a force to be reckoned with, but this past year proved that they are such big stars the rules don’t even apply to them. (See: surprise album from Beyoncé, surprise performance of “Drunk in Love” at the Grammys, and more.)
It’s worth pointing out that Beyoncé’s latest self-titled visual album is also her raunchiest. She even admitted in a mini-YouTube series that after recording the song “Partition,” which features Jay Z, she was surprised by herself: “I still haven’t played it for my mom, she’s going to be very mad at me.”
But of course, that’s exactly the type of uninhibited on-stage chemistry and creativity that audiences like to see from the pair.
Tickets for Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “On the Run” tour go on pre-sale tomorrow at 8 a.m. for Fan Club members and 10 a.m. for Chase card holders. General ticket sales open on Friday, May 2. Visit beyonce.com and ticketmaster.com for more.
