Beyoncé and Jay Z are (maybe) going on tour together this summer. Nothing is confirmed yet, but after recently wrapping their respective his and hers tours—the "Magna Carta... Holy Grail Tour" for him, the "Mrs. Carter Show" tour for her—Page Six claims they will kick off a stadium tour together.
KING BEY. AND HOV. ON ONE TOUR. (A tour we will henceforth refer to as "The Carter Family Tour," because obviously that has to be what they call it, if this is true.) According to Page Six:
"Sources exclusively tell Page Six that hip hop's royal couple plans to announce a 20-stadium US tour that will start in late June—and that it's possible the couple could perform in New York on July 4."
Here is every emotion we felt when we heard the news (and there were a lot of emotions):
BEYYYYYYYYOOOOOOOONNNNNNNCCCCCCÉ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And Jay Z is great too!
We saw Bey last summer during "The Mrs. Carter Show." BEFORE she released Beyoncé. Yes, it was an amazing concert. But Europe got to see her perform "Partition" and "Drunk in Love" and "XO" and mostly "Partition"! They got to see her do that sexy chair dance live! And how is that fair?! We thought Bey would have to do another leg in the U.S., but with this, we'd get a twofer!
Whenever you go to a Jay or Bey show, you're always hoping the other will make a surprise appearance during "Crazy in Love" or "Déjà Vu" or "Drunk in Love" or "'03 Bonnie & Clyde." Now, it's guaranteed. All of them. And maybe even "Young Forever," with Beyoncé singing the Mr. Hudson part, which may be our favorite Jay-Bey collabo.
Just the thought of this concert has us feeling a certain way. Actually being there? Maaaaan.
We're happy for Blue Ivy, that she'd have both of her parents on one tour, in the same place at the same time. But we're even more happy for us, to KNOW that Blue Ivy is near. If you were at a Beyoncé show, you didn't know if Blue is with the Magna Carta entourage. And if you were at a Jay Z show, Blue could've been anywhere else in the world, with Mrs. Carter. Now, you'll be able to know for certain you're in the radius of her presence. And that is truly #blessed.
Let's get real: These tickets are going to be a nightmare. It's a nightmare trying to buy tickets for a Beyoncé concert. Now we have to compete with the Jay Z fans too? This thing is going to sell out everywhere in a second.
And then we're going to have to go to StubHub and pay a million dollars for nosebleed seats or CraigsList and do god knows what for a ticket that may or may not even be real. Or maybe we just don't get to go?
Nope. We'll be there. We WILL be there.
We hope this Page Six rumor is even true in the first place!
