Beyoncé Rolls Out Tour After Super Bowl
February 4, 2013

Beyoncé gave an energetic, booty-shaking performance at the Super Bowl in New Orleans on Sunday night, filled with a wild light display and tons of backup dancers. Queen Bey, shrouded in black leather, opened with a medley of "Love on Top," "Crazy in Love," "End of Time" and "Baby Boy" before bringing out two of her pals for the worst-kept secret in Pop music: the Destiny's Child reunion. The trio offered a few of their past fan-favorites - "Bootylicious" and "Independent Woman" - before belting out Beyonce's solo hit "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)." Bey then closed the set with a rocking rendition of "Halo."

Before Sunday's kickoff, singers Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson also performed. Hudson sang "America the Beautiful" with the chorus from Sandy Hook Elementary School, and Keys played a stripped-down rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner."

Shortly after the halftime show, Beyoncé posted an open letter on her tumblr page in praise of her fellow Super Bowl performers. "What a proud day for African American women," she said in a handwritten note. "Kelly [Rowland], Michelle [Williams], Alicia, J-hud. You are all beautiful, talented and showed so much class! It was an honor to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies."

After that, Beyoncé didn't waste any time getting back to work. She quickly announced the dates for the Mrs. Carter Show world tour, which will be her first global outing since 2009's I Am... World Tour.
The dates, listed on Beyoncé's website, will come in support of her upcoming fifth studio album. The trek kicks off on April 15 in Belgrade, Serbia and the European leg winds up on May 29 in Stockholm, Sweden. The singer returns to the U.S. on June 28 in Los Angeles and will stay on the road all summer until August 3 in Brooklyn, NY. Beyoncé has also been confirmed as the headliner at the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil on September 13.
