One of music’s biggest power couples, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, is tacking on additional stops to their “OTR II” routing in North America and Europe due to demand.

The additions include three new venues/markets in North America: Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio;

In Europe the only addition is a second night at Amsterdam Arena in the Netherlands June 20.

In the U.S., there are second nights at Washington, D.C.’s FedExField July 27; E. Rutherford, N.J.’s MetLife Stadium Aug. 3; Chicago’s Soldier Field Aug. 11; Atlanta’s brand-spanking-new Mercedes-Benz Stadium Aug. 26; and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. Sept. 23.

These new additions go on sale March 26, with Citi cardholders, Beyhive and Tidal members getting a presale March 21. The originally announced dates are up for grabs March 23. The venues getting second nights are being listed as sold out on the press release.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé are huge touring forces on their own, with Bey coming in at No. 2 on Pollstar’s 2016 Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours and Jay-Z hitting No. 26 on the 2017 Year End Top 200 North American Tours.

The last time these two went on tour together was in 2014, when they grossed $109.7 million with average ticket prices around $112 and averaging $6.45 million and 57,634 tickets per market. Ticket prices have generally gone up in the last four years, so this tour looks destined to be a big moneymaker.

Beyoncé is also lined up to headline Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
