After rumors began to circulate for the past month, Jay Z and Beyonce have officially announced their rumored and highly anticipated, On the Run II Tour, the live sequel to their 2014 stadium tour of the same name.
Following a collection of dates abroad, Jay and B will make their way to North America for a huge run of stadium shows, kicking things off on July 25th in Cleveland, and making stops at Chicago’s Soldier Field, Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta, Los Angeles and more, until the North American leg comes to an end on October 2nd in Vancouver.
Tickets, which will surely go fast, will go on sale to the general public starting Monday, March 19th at LiveNation.com (on-sale dates and times vary). This may be the hottest and biggest tour of the summer, so you won’t want to miss out.

It’s close to impossible for Beyonce to make a song with a rapper bigger than her husband, but with Eminem’s new single ‘Walk On Water’, that’s just what happened.
With a gospel influenced chorus from B, and spoken-word paced verses from Em, ‘Walk On Water’ is our first taste from Eminem’s forthcoming studio album, Revival, and unlike anything we have heard from the Detroit legend in the past.

Sorry, Beyonce fans! You will have to wait until 2018 to catch Beyonce’s headlining performance at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. According to a statement from festival officials, Beyonce has followed the advice of her doctors “to keep a less rigorous schedule” and therefore will forgo performing at Coachella this year.
But while Coachella lost their best headliner to date today, they also gained their best headliner to date today as well, as Beyonce instead will perform at the premiere California music festival in 2018.
Fans everywhere were initially optimistic that Beyonce would still perform this year, because she’d either give birth to her twins before her Coachella performances or she’d rock a kick-ass performance while carrying twins, because if anyone can do it…it’s Beyonce. But unfortunately the above will not be the case, and Beyonce will take it easy, and we can’t blame her.
Stay tuned to see if Coachella will announce a new 2017 headliner to fill Beyonce’s shoes, but in the meantime, you can start counting down the days until Coachella 2018.
It’s probably time for Coachella to start looking for a new headlining act for the festival’s back-to-back weekends. Although there hasn’t been any official cancellation as of yet, common sense would dictate that Beyonce will not be able to headline the Indio, CA festival this April.
After Beyonce blessed us all with the news that she is pregnant with twins, her ability to perform is of course affected. Beyonce has performed while pregnant before, in fact she announced her first pregnancy during a performance in 2011 at the MTV Video Music Awards. However, she was not as far along as she will be during Coachella this year, and that performance was just a few songs.
Beyonce is Beyonce, but she is still human, and at the time of Coachella she will be about 7 or 8 months pregnant and in no position to put on two huge headlining performances. And if you’ve ever seen Beyonce live, she doesn’t just sit on a stool with her mic stand. Some women aren’t even advised to fly on an airplane that far along, none the less perform on the biggest stage in the U.S. One thing that is for sure, if Coachella does have to put in a sub for Beyonce, she casts a huge shadow for any possible replacement.
Stay tuned as we will update our readers with any new information.

Heading to Indio, CA for another memorable year at Coachella this year will be Radiohead, Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and more, as Coachella has announced its official 2017 lineup. Joining the mega headliners will be names like Travis Scott, Dillon Frances, Father John Misty, the xx, Schoolboy Q, Bon Iver, Future, Gucci Mane, Lorde, Future Islands and many more.
With music festivals more competitive than ever, Coachella seems to always remain as the premiere music festival for North America, and don’t expect that to change this year.
