The biggest tour of the summer is official! A few weeks ago rumors swirled about Beyonce and Jay-Z, music’s most powerful couple, uniting for a summer tour. Would they come to Boston? Our fingers were crossed! Just a few days ago, the On the Run tour was officially confirmed. 16 tour dates and locations were released across the US with On the Run coming to Foxborough, MA on July 1st at the Gillette Stadium. Pre-sale tickets went on sale this morning for Fan Club members and Chase credit and debit card holders. General tickets are expected to go on sale to the public this Friday and can be purchased here. We highly suggest buying them as soon as you can since every location is likely to sell-out!
