After Beyoncé and Jay-Z sent fans into a frenzy last week when they momentarily listed a tour date for “On the Run II,” music’s most powerful couple have now made it official: The two are going on a joint tour which kicks off this summer.

Beyoncé posted images on Instagram that said “OTR II.” Her website has pre-sale information for tour dates in Europe and North America. North American tour dates go on sale on March 19, while European dates go on sale on March 19 or 23, depending on the city. Check Beyoncé’s website for more information on the pre-sale.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé last embarked on a joint tour together in 2014 called “On the Run,” which promoted the albums “Beyoncé” and “Magna Carta Holy Grail.” “On the Run” made more than $100 million in ticket sales. Fans have been hoping for a new tour featuring Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” and Jay-Z’s “4:44,” two intertwined albums about Jay-Z’s infidelity in their marriage.

In 2014, Beyoncé called the joint tour the best of her life. She posted a photo of Jay-Z holding their daughter, Blue Ivy, alongside the caption: “Thank you San Fran! Your city is beautiful. It was the perfect place to complete the best tour of my life! Thank you to all the fans that supported our show. God bless.” The Instagram post came amid rumors that the couple’s marriage was getting rocky.
