With a nod to her famous hubby, the Beyoncé’s adventure is entitled “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour Starring Beyoncé” and marks her first multi-city outing in more than three years.

Jay-Z’s better half will also perform at the world’s largest music festival  – Sept. 13 at Brazil’s “Rock In Rio.”

Promoted by Live Nation and scheduled to take up most of the year, the newly announced dates represent the first round of scheduled shows. Yet to be revealed are dates for Latin America, Australia and Asia.
