'On The Run' Possibly 2nd Most Successful Tour Ever
In a feat that should be shocking to no one, Jay Z and Beyonce’s "On The Run" tour is on pace to become the second most successful tour ever. According to Forbes, the Carters are nearing one million ticket sales which will equal a gross profit of $100 million. They come second only to U2’s 360 Tour, which raked in a total of $736 million back in 2011 - after 110 shows to Bey-Z’s 20.
Jay Z and Beyonce have also extended their (is “highly-anticipated” accurate enough?) joint tour to now include two exclusive European dates. On Sept. 12 and 13, the Carters will hit the Stade de France in Paris after a month-long break following their final U.S. date in San Francisco. A special version of their theatrical promo trailer was released upon the announcement:
The "On The Run" tour kicks off on June 25 at the SunLife Stadium in Miami.
