Just one day after surprise-releasing "Formation," Beyoncé informed her fans there would be a corresponding world tour. The announcement came at the end of her Super Bowl halftime showdown in the form of an elemental, black-and-white TV spot. The most urgent message here is that pre-sale for tickets begin February 9, and tickets actually go on sale February 16. The performances begin in North America in late-April, spanning myriad venues in Canada and the States, before switching to a European stretch to close out the summer.

Here's the video:
