If there's one thing Beyonce has mastered, it's the ability to turn heads.
The 34-year-old's epic performance at the Super Bowl halftime show on February 7 certainly did just that -- and then some. Although she was considered just a side act to Coldplay, Beyonce stole the show with a politically charged performance of her latest single, "Formation." In a savvy move, tour dates for The Formation World Tour were immediately announced in a commercial following the halftime show. The stadium tour, which is set to launch on April 27 and run until July 31 in Belgium, has generated huge demand from fans across the country, with a handful of performances already sold out.
Following her general on-sale Tuesday, February 16, Beyonce tickets are averaging $358 across all 40 scheduled dates. Tickets have dropped slightly prior the on-sale, as they were averaging $432 before the weekend.
As it stands, Beyonce fans in Georgia must be the most hyped to see the singer, as tickets to the May 1 show at the Georgia Dome are averaging a whopping $588, with the cheapest ticket priced at just under $100. Not far behind that price point is Beyonce's May 27 stop at Soldier Field in Chicago, where tickets are averaging $524, with the cheapest ticket priced at $89, according to data provided by ticket aggregator TiqIQ. Beyonce is on track to play her most affordable stop at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on May 31, where tickets are averaging $243, with the cheapest ticket priced at just $63.
Unlike her fellow Super Bowl halftime performers Coldplay and Bruno Mars, the Internet can't seem to stop talking about Beyonce. Her performance (and music video that followed) has generated both support and outrage for the political message. Beyonce's halftime performance might be the most radical political statement from her 20-year career. It certainly is playing a roll in the demand for her tickets.
By comparison, the last time Beyonce hit the road for a solo tour was in 2013 for the Mrs. Carter World Tour, and tickets for the tour averaged $324 on the secondary market. As it stands right now, tickets for Beyonce may be some of the priciest of the summer.
