Beyoncé looks set to bring her Mrs Carter Show World Tour to Australia late 2013 after tour dates were leaked earlier today. The leaked dates, expected to be announced tomorrow, show Beyoncé making stops in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth in October and November 2013.
UPDATE: The Australian tour has officially been announced!
There are three tell-tale tip-offs that this leak is legit. One, we’ve known for months that Queen Bey was planning on coming Down Under after the first leg of her world tour, yet when the second round of tour dates were revealed recently there was a noticeable Australia-shaped gap in her schedule during October and November between her South American and North American shows.
Two, global touring powerhouse Live Nation, who are promoting the Mrs Carter Show worldwide, have been teasing a big announcement with the date 07/07/13 on their Australian Facebook page for the past couple of days.
Three, Ticketek just this evening removed the waiting list for tickets on the Australian leg of the Mrs Carter tour from their site.
There you have it – along with the tour dates, there are three big golden arrows all pointing to the second coming of Beysus, a force not seen on our shores since a whirlwind tour in September 2009. The full list of dates is below, and those with a keen eye will see that there’s plenty of room for extra shows in between the ones already leaked.
Beyoncé has been absolutely killing it this year (all in preparation for her Australian tour, obviously) with Mrs Carter shows taking in just about everywhere in Europe – including a massive sold-out run at the O2 in London – as well as pretty much ruining American football forever with a Superbowl halftime show that will be nigh-on impossible to top.
Check out the full dates below, as well as the Mrs Carter World Tour teaser vid and Beyoncé’s Superbowl performance, which is sure to get you in the mood. Australia is waiting, O golden skinned goddess – take us into your honeyed arms and show us who run the world.
