On Monday, Jay Z and Beyonce announced a joint summer tour that will take them to 16 cities throughout North America, starting in June.

The married couple first stirred anticipation that they’d tour together in early April, but the buzz was initially dampened by Jay Z revealing that his 2014 “Made in America” music festival will play in both Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

It seems the pair just wanted an element of surprise. Their announcement of the “On the Run” tour arrived complete with an image of the two wearing ski masks.

Even before they quietly tied the knot in 2008, Mr. and Mrs. Carter have dominated the music industry both as solo artists and as a couple. One of their recent collaborations, “Drunk In Love,” was controversial but nonetheless landed at No. 1.

And with their “On the Run” tour, the duo are hoping to use their combined star power for good.

A dollar from each “On the Run” ticket sold will go toward the Shawn Carter Foundation, an organization that helps underserved groups go to college. The tour is also being presented in partnership with Beyonce’s #BeyGOOD campaign, which seeks to inspire charitable work, kindness and community involvement.

Tickets go on sale for the general public May 2, while anxious fans can visit Beyonce’s or Jay Z’s Facebook page for information on advance purchases. The tour will launch in Miami on June 25 and wind down in San Francisco on August 5.

Queen of shade Beyoncé, 34, completed her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour last month, where she garnered critical acclaim for her dramatic stage shows. Fortunately, the effort and long hours were clearly worth it, as it was the star’s most successful to date. Before she had even finished her run, it came in at number 2 on Pollstar’s year-end Top 20 Worldwide Tours list, grossing $188.6 million from the first 107 shows, and was also the most lucrative female tour of 2013.

Unfortunately, the drama wasn’t just reserved for the stage. It was recently reported that two former fans of the singer are suing her. Raquel Castellanos and Gabriella Davidson are claiming they got trampled at one of the star’s concerts. The women had purchased general admission tickets for a show at the United Center in Chicago last December, court documents obtained by CBS’ local affiliate in Chicago reveal. Castellanos and Davidson claim they arrived to the venue a few hours early and got spots standing close to the stage.

The suit states: ‘As the hours passed, the group became larger, more dense and more anxious about how, when and where the gate(s) would be released and where ticket holders and fans were supposed to enter The United Centre – none of which was explained.’

Outside of the law suit, Jay and Bey have reached their 6th year of marriage and I’m sure will do something special to celebrate the end of her tour and their anniversary as well. Congrats to these two.
