Beyonce announces The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour

When she's not performing a show so powerful that it causes a surge somewhere in the New Orleans Superdome, she's announcing a tour. Okay, the power outage wasn't her fault, but she is announcing a tour. Well, sort of, because she was scooped on the whole thing a day ahead of time. But, in any case, a tour is coming.

The U.S. leg of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour will see Beyonce tour the region for the first time in four years, the last being during the "I Am... Tour" in 2009. On the 22-date run, Beyonce will perform from coast to coast and north to south. Before the U.S. run, Beyonce will tour Europe.

While it seems as though the rumored reunion of Destiny's Child will not come to pass, that doesn't mean we won't see special guests on this tour. Perhaps a few well-timed appearances by Mr. Carter, Jay-Z, himself? Notably, the last show of the leg is being hosted in Brooklyn, Jay-Z's hometown, so we shall see.

The U.S. dates are below. Click here to find an event and place an order for tickets.

I always like Doritos commercials during the Super Bowl, and I thought this one where a girl gets her dad to dress up like a princess was pretty cute. The other Doritos commercial, "Goat 4 Sale," was good, too.
