Okay ladies, now let's get in formation. Formation to buy our tickets to The Formation World Tour, that is. Beyoncé dominated the field at the Super Bowl halftime show, performing her new song, "Formation," live for the first time — and when the show was over, she put on an even bigger show. Buying up a few precious seconds of Super Bowl ad time, she revealed The Formation World Tour.

The summer 2016 tour will take her to stadiums worldwide, with the first date coming on April 27. Dates will be divided between North America and Europe and run through mid-July, with the full list below.
Beyoncé broke the internet twice this weekend, it seems — her website went down the moment the commercial aired tonight.
She's also giving fans a chance to donate through #BeyGOOD to the United Way's continued work surrounding the water crisis in Flint, Michigan — in partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint. More details to come on how to contribute, via the BeyGOOD Twitter account.
Could a surprise album be far behind this surprise single and tour? A betting woman wouldn't bet against Beyoncé, ever.
