Beyonce announced a world tour during Super Bowl 50

Shortly after the Beyoncé featuring Bruno Mars and Coldplay Super Bowl halftime show, the true purpose of what we just watched was revealed. Like most things Super Bowl—from the commercials to the post-game-speech Budweiser plug—the spectacle proved to be a carefully planned bit of marketing, but this time for something you might actually want to buy. A short post-performance ad, which you can watch below, announced Beyoncé's Formation World Tour, kicking off April 27 and visiting NYC on June 7 at Citi Field. Tickets to the NYC show go on sale February 16, with presales for Beyhive members and AmEx cardholders before that.

Of course the halftime show was a lot of other things too: the first live performance of new Beyoncé single "Formation," endless callbacks to halftime shows past (from Beyoncé's MJ-referencing outfit to Coldplay's lyrical interpolations), a reminder of the staying power of "Uptown Funk," Beyoncé's backup-dancers-as-Black-Panthers political gesture, an affirmation that Coldplay are fine but pale next to their pop peers. The main takeaway though—and this part is irrefutable—is that Beyoncé is a genius and whatever she's planning for Citi Field and the rest is worth your dollars.
