Beyonce will return to Atlanta in the fall


Less than a week after holding court at the Georgia Dome , Beyonce has announced she’s returning to Atlanta.

That’s correct, Queen Bey fans. If you missed her on May 1 or are aching to see her in concert again, your wish will be granted on Sept. 26 when Beyonce performs an encore performance at the venue.

Tickets for all performance go on sale Friday, May 13.  Beyhive members will have an opportunity to purchase advance tickets starting Thursday, May 5 at 10 a.m. American Express Card Members can purchase before the general public tickets Friday, May 6 at 10:00 a.m. through Wed. May 11 at 5 p.m. local time.

The “Formation Tour” kicked off April 27 in Miami and has an initial round of dates scheduled through August.

Two months before the tour commenced, Beyonce had already sold out multiple shows at stadiums in New York, London and Chicago with single-night sell-outs in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Houston and the Atlanta date.

According to Arthur Fogel, chairman of Live Nation Global Touring, the promoters of the tour, the first 39 scheduled earned more than $100 million in ticket sales shortly after they went on sale in February.

On April 23, Beyonce released her sixth studio album, the provocative “Lemonade.” Her set list from the tour includes several tracks from the new release, as well as career hits “Ring the Alarm,” “Drunk in Love” and “Halo.”
