In 2014, Beyoncé and Jay-Z toured together, with shows at MetLife Stadium and other venues, on their On the Run Tour. This summer, they will be touring together again, and their OTR II Tour will come to the East Rutherford stadium on Aug. 2.
(March 20 Update: A second show has been added, on Aug. 3; tickets go on sale March 26 at 10 a.m., with various pre-sales starting March 21 at 10 a.m.).
Since the tour itinerary has two open days before Aug. 2, and two after it, and there are no other events confirmed for the stadium on those days, it certainly seems possible that a show or two could be added it ticket sales are strong.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z got married nearly a decade ago, in April 2008, and have three children together.
The tour will start in Europe, and the North American leg will kick off July 25 in Cleveland. Other Northeast shows will include July 30 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, and Aug. 5 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
Beyoncé’s last album was Lemonade, in 2016; Jay-Z’s was 4:44, last year. Both included songs that were interpreted as being about their marriage.
