Queen Bey has the Beyhivé buzzing!
On Sunday, Beyoncé announced that she’s hitting the road for a new world tour, which will kick off on April 27 in Miami. The tour is named after the Grammy-winning artist's recently dropped single “Formation” — a song she performed during the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show.
So, how do fans snag a ticket to the most coveted concert of the year? Well, they have a few options — but their best bet is by purchasing a presale ticket. Here’s how:
1. The Beyhivé
Are you a member of the Beyhivé? Then you get first dibs on presale tickets, which will become available to the fan club on Tuesday, Feb. 9. Signing up for a fan account is simple. While the site crashed Monday due to the severity of traffic, it appeared to be up and running Tuesday morning. If you're not a Beyhivé member, you can check out option No. 2 below!
2. Ticketmaster VIP
Super fans should flock to Ticketmaster at 10 a.m. EST on Tuesday to score a VIPnation ticket during the company’s presale event. VIP packages, which are not currently priced, range from a Beyhivé Pacakge — which includes a one standing ticket inside the Beyhivé, designated check-in with on-site event staff, exclusive merchandise, and a collectible laminate and lanyard — to a BeyParty Package — which includes a seated ticket in top-priced seat category, designated check-in with on-site staff, access to the fully decorated, catered pre-show reception, exclusive merchandise and collectable laminate and lanyard.
ABC also advised that in addition to trying to land tickets through the website, “Formation” fans should call the ticketing company directly. During the Adele presale, many fans grew frustrated when they were unable to purchase tickets online. However, some admirers of the British singer found success when they dialed the ticket sale company directly to order over the phone.
3. American Express Card Members
Amex card members are also receiving early access to tickets, which according to the official UK Twitter account of American Express, will begin after Ticketmaster’s presale at 12 p.m. on Tuesday.

On Friday, Feb. 12, LiveNation will offer presale tickets for the 2016 "Formation" World Tour. In addition to purchasing a ticket through the general website, fans can also attempt to attend the show through the LiveNation Mobile App.
Fans who do not purchase presale tickets will have to wait until Tuesday, Feb. 16. That's when general admission tickets in addition to public VIP packages will go on sale at 10 a.m. EST. Tickets for the event can range from $40 to $350 depending on the arena or stadium and fees.
