Feb 25, 2013

BROOKLYN (February 25, 2013) – The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour starring Beyoncé is an overwhelming success with all performances in North America completely sold out!

Again, due to overwhelming demand, an additional Barclays Center concert has been confirmed on August 5, making Barclays Center the only venue in New York to host Beyoncé and the final date on this leg of the North American Tour. Complete itinerary follows.

Following the European tour which starts mid-April and the North American tour, The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour will head to Rio where Beyoncé is confirmed to headline at the world’s largest music festival, Rock in Rio, on its first night, September 13 at the "City of Rock" in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rock in Rio has set records for its massive crowds and its powerful media drive.

The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour promises to be the entertainer’s most ambitious undertaking to date. It is expected to be bigger in scope than any of her previous shows. Slated to run for almost one year, the second wave of the tour is planned for Latin America, Australia and Asia.

Following her historic performance at the Pepsi SuperBowl XLVII Halftime Show, in New Orleans, Beyoncé officially returns to a full-time touring schedule, her first since the I AM…WORLD TOUR in 2009, with a new, bolder state-of-the-art production.
