Beyoncé announced dates for her Formation World Tour during the Super Bowl on Sunday, including a stop in Baltimore at M&T Stadium (1101 Russell St., Baltimore, Md.) on June 10.

The 34-year-old had a busy weekend, dropping a new single “Formation” with an accompanying video on Saturday causing an internet frenzy. 24 hours later Beyoncé performed the song on the Levi Stadium field during the Super Bowl 50 half time show in between a medley of Coldplay hits.

Her performance went political as her back-up dancers dressed like the Black Panthers stemming from some calling “Formation” a “pro-black” anthem. The official track also incorporates New Orleans queer culture with voice snippets from gay bounce rapper Big Freedia.

Bruno Mars joined Beyoncé and Coldplay for the show with the three performing Mars’s “Uptown Funk” and Coldplay’s”Up&Up” together.

The show concluded with a commercial announcing Beyoncé’s world tour.Tickets go on sale Tuesday at livenation.com.
