Beyoncé is still proving to the world that she can’t be stopped, with a new world tour coming for the R&B superstar fresh off a Super Bowl halftime show.
Beyoncé’s The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour is set to kick off in April in Europe and was announced on Knowles’ website Sunday night after her Super Bowl performance. The name borrows from her married name with husband Jay-Z, whose real name is Sean Carter.
The singer’s first North American stop will be June 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles ending Aug. 13 in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Other cities include Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Toronto and San Jose.
Ticket sale dates have not yet been announced.

The announcement follows a stomping halftime performance during the Ravens-49ers game, which saw a surprise reunion with her Destiny’s Child band members, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, after weeks of speculation from the press as well as denials from Rowland and Williams themselves.
The trio performed group hits “Bootylicious” and “Independent Women Pt. 1” in the middle of Beyoncé’s set, with a dance backup of “Single Ladies.”
“I’m so sorry. I'm so sorry,” Williams told WRUG Media last month. “But we did record a song with each other (the single, "Nuclear") before the holidays.”

Beyoncé herself faced controversy from admittedly lip-syncing the National Anthem during President Obama’s inauguration ceremony. A U.S. Marine Corp Band spokesman told TMZ that the singer chose to sing along with the pre-recorded studio version.
She later squashed rumors she couldn’t sing it live by performing an a capella version of the National Anthem 10 days later at the NFL 2013 Super Bowl press conference.
