Beyonce, who joined Coldplay and Bruno Mars for the Super Bowl 50 halftime Sunday night, will bring the Formation Tour, her first stadium headlining run, to Heinz Field on May 31.
Tickets are $40 to $250 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 22 via LiveNation.com. There will be an Amex and Beyhive fan club pre-sale beginning Tuesday; info at www.thebeyhive.com.
It will be the 20-time Grammy-winning star's first appearance in Pittsburgh since playing with her former group Destiny's Child at the Petersen Events Center in 2005. The 40-date tour begins on April 27 and runs through June, with concerts in North America and Europe.
The tour announcement follows Saturday's surprise release of a new single, "Formation," along video with a cinematic video shot in New Orleans that references the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, antebellum and police brutality.
Her last album was the self-titled "Beyonce" in 2013, which included the No. 2 single "Drunk in Love" with husband Jay Z. It joined such major hits as "Crazy in Love," "Check on It," "Irreplaceable," "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and "Halo."
