After an accidental slip last week and a whirlwind of circulating rumors, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have finally announced that they will be touring the globe together this summer into next fall. The couple first toured together in 2014, performing Beyonce's self-titled LP and Jay's Magna Carta Holy Grail. Since then, the couple has released more separate projects, despite rumors that they would be collaborating on music. The European/UK leg of the tour will kick off in Cardiff, with 15 shows dated through June and July. The North American dates commence on July 25 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Much has changed for the couple since their last joint tour. In 2014, a montage of happy family memories lit up the stadium, including footage from the Cartier-Knowles wedding, Beyonce's pregnancy with Blue Ivy, and love-drenched imagery of the couple. Since then, the pair has been hounded with rumors of divorce, magnified by their respective solo albums. Beyoncé flipped the world upside down with her 2016 release Lemonadein which she calls out her husband for being unfaithful. Flash to Jay-Z's 2017 release 4:44, where he outwardly admitted his affair. He even cited Becky, the faceless form that represents the mysterious home wrecker first mentioned in Lemonade's "Sorry", in his track "Family Feud".

On 4:44's bonus track “MaNyfaCedGod", Jay raps about the struggle the couple faced on their first tour, going back to back with poignant tracks that mimicked the silent struggles of the two. Adding a set of twins to the repertoire, the Carters' lives have grown exponentially more hectic. With each performer presenting their sides of the story, the tour may offer a rare glimpse into their otherwise covert lives.

Select shows will be available for presale starting March 19th, while others may have to wait a few days before nagging seat. Head to livenation.com or beyonce.com for more info.
