Jay Z & Beyoncé make your summer by confirming tour
The rumor is true: Jay Z and Beyoncé have announced their On The Run joint tour, which will kick off this summer.
The famous duo will kick-start their concert tour in Florida on June 25 and will end it in San Francisco on August 5, with stops in Canada along the way, Refinery29 reported. The announcement was made by Beyoncé herself when she posted a promotional poster of the tour on her website.

The promo artwork features the married couple in an embrace wearing mugger-style ski masks and with the words "On the Run Tour — Jay Z, Beyoncé." The look is supposed to reference their collaboration in their "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" single.
Other duets that will likely be performed on the tour include "Drunk in Love," "Crazy in Love," "Déjà Vu" and "Part II (On the Run)."
Tickets will go on pre-sale for Beyoncé's fan club members starting at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, while Chase members will be able to pre-order theirs from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., also on Tuesday. Regular ticket sales will begin May 2.
Ending her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in March, Beyoncé performed 132 concerts over the past several months. Jay Z is set to headline the Budweiser Made in America music festival over Labor Day weekend in September. While no word was made official until today, the rumor mill went into overdrive when reports of a joint tour surfaced earlier this month.
