Beyonce Extends UK Tour
Beyonce has extended the UK leg of her Mrs. Carter Show tour. The "Crazy in Love" hitmaker had been due to play eight English shows in April and May, but following popular demand when tickets went on pre-sale this morning, she has now added a further three gigs.
As well as the previously-announced dates, Beyonce will take to the stage at London's The O2 on 4 and 5 May, and the Manchester Arena on 9 May. This takes the total number of shows in London to six and Manchester to three, and she will also perform two gigs in Birmingham.
Tickets for all 11 UK concerts go on general sale on Saturday.
Beyonce announced the tour earlier this month, just hours after her performance at the Superbowl. The first show takes place in Belgrade, Serbia on April 15 and the European leg comes to an end in Stockholm, Sweden, on May 29. The star will then take a month's break before returning to the stage at Los Angeles' Staples Center on June 28.
