Beyonce and Jay-Z Announce Handful of Concert Tour Dates :
Beyonce has announced about 20 concert dates so far for her 2014 tour with JayZ. The Beyonce tour dates released so far, show that her tour schedule will be quite easy this year. Beyonce and Jay-Z have only announced North American dates so far but we’re hoping for more.
An increasing number of artists are dedicating entire concerts to one album as a way of boosting interest in live performances and emphasizing the unity of their album releases in an age of downloadable singles. Last November, Kanye West performed his entire album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. The traveling hip-hop festival Rock The Bells, which kicks off on August 20 in Los Angeles, is headlined by a number of artists performing every song from standout albums, including Lauryn Hill performing her 1998 opus, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” Nas performing his 1994 debut album, “Illmatic,” and Erykah Badu performing her 1997 debut, “Baduizm.” Typically, the practice of performing an album in full has been reserved for releases generally regarded as classics. (For more on this go to Ethan Smith’s story “Up Next: Your Favorite Album.”)
Last year, The ‘4 Intimate Nights With Beyonce concert series’ is only taking place in New York City, and the shows will be held on August 14, 16, 18, and 19. Guest appearances weren’t announced but “4” itself is light on them–the only celebrity cameos come from rapper Andre 3000 on the track “Party,” and various ad-libs from Kanye West who produced the record. But given her many famous friends and associates (she’s married to rapper Jay-Z), it wouldn’t be a surprise for her to pull out a few surprises.
Beyonce tickets for this particular Beyonce tour, in general, are usually hard to come by if you don’t grab any on the pre-sale or onsales, but since this concert tour seems to stick to tremendous stadiums, we’re not sure if lack of concert tickets will be an issue. It’s just the number of concerts we’re concerned with right now.
