Drunk In Love: Jay Z, Beyonce To Embark On 16-Stop Stadium Tour This Summer

Jay Z and Beyonce will perform together at "stadiums across North America this summer" as part of the On the Run tour, according to Gerrick Kennedy of the L.A. TIMES. The 16-date trek "starts June 25 in Miami and wraps Aug. 5" in S.F. The couple "had yet to tour together" despite countless duet performances and "a number of joint hits documenting their love over the last dozen or so years" (L.A. TIMES, 4/29). Jay Z, Beyonce and One Direction are filling a void for stadium shows this summer, as Kenny Chesney is off the road and no U2 or Rolling Stones shows have been scheduled at this point (Don Muret, Staff Writer).

GET BACK: In L.A., Todd Martens noted Paul McCartney will play an Aug. 10 date at Dodger Stadium, his "first major L.A.-area concert since a two-night stand at the Hollywood Bowl" in '10 (L.A. TIMES, 4/26). Meanwhile, in S.F., Matier & Ross reported McCartney decided to "play the closing concert" at Candlestick Park in part because the 49ers took Levi's Stadium "out of the running for the event." Sources said that the "storm of bad PR that accompanied the revelation that the Niners were trying to lure Sir Paul away from a Candlestick closing, combined with a desire to keep the peace" with S.F. -- the official host city for Super Bowl L -- "played into the team's decision to back off." City officials were "more than a little annoyed when they learned that McCartney's agents had been talking with the Niners about playing at the new Levi's Stadium in early August" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 4/27).
