Now, the music superstars are gearing up to tour together, though the official announcement was just as drama-filled as their relationship. Last week, eagle-eyed fans caught a glimpse of tour dates shared on Beyoncé’s official Facebook page and Ticketmaster pages. Complex caught a screenshot of the Facebook page, and we see the Beyoncé & Jay-Z – On the Run 2 dates scheduled for July 30 at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
As with all secretive things in the world of Bey and Jay, the posts were quickly deleted, and fans on Twitter proceeded to freak out.

But on Monday, March 12, Queen Bey announced the tour for real with three Instagram posts, one of which is a video with behind-the-scenes footage from their personal (and professional) relationship.
The timing of the tour makes sense. Beyoncé is gearing up to headline Coachella in April and has been sharing photos of her rehearsals plus a new healthy vegan diet.
They’ve also each released music since. Queen Bey dropped and toured Lemonade, while Jay-Z had 4:44. Together, they appeared in a video for Jay’s “Family Feud” and once more joined forces for DJ Khaled’s “Top Off.”
The announcement of a tour could come coupled with news of new music—and it’s been rumored for years that these two have a joint album up their sleeves. Could they be getting ready to drop 2018’s best record or, better yet, reinterpret the Bonnie and Clyde personas they took on for the first On the Run show? A next-level Beyoncé and Jay-Z concert is exactly what we need right now.
