The Formation World Tour is the seventh concert tour by American singer Beyoncé in support of her sixth studio album, Lemonade. The all-stadium tour was announced following her guest appearance at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show. The tour started on April 27, 2016 in Miami, Florida and concludes on October 2, 2016 in Nashville, Tennessee. The tour's title is in reference to Beyoncé's 2016 song "Formation".
The tours production and staging was described as being a "game-changer" for stadium concerts, and consisted of a 60 feet tall rotating LED box referred to as the 'Monolith', a treadmill runway and a secondary stage that stored and produced 2,000 gallons of water. The theme of the tour was described as following the same linear chapters to that of the tours supporting album Lemonade, with each rotation of the aforementioned 'Monolith' representing a new chapter of the show. The tour has currently received rave reviews from critics, commending Beyoncé for her performance and vocal abilities as well as the tours production.
On February 6, 2016, Beyoncé released "Formation" for free on the music streaming service TIDAL and its accompanying music video on her official YouTube. The following day on February 7, 2016, Beyoncé performed "Formation" during her guest appearance at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show. Immediately after the performance, a commercial aired announcing The Formation World Tour, which kicks off in Miami on April 27, with the first pre-sales going on sale just two days after the announcement on February 9, 2016.
Leading up to the tour announcement, Beyoncé was praised and criticized over her new song and Black Panther-influenced costume for the Super Bowl halftime performance. As a result of this, the hashtags "#BoycottBeyonce" and "#IStandWithBeyonce" begun trending on social media platforms such as Twitter. A group of protesters also planned to stage an "anti-Beyoncé" rally outside of the NFL's headquarters in New York City on the day general sale of tickets went for sale. However, the planned rally was met with zero protesters and instead dozens of Beyoncé supporters who held a counter-protest. The tour's associated album Lemonade was released four days prior to the start of the tour. See more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Formation_World_Tour
