Beyoncé announces Formation World Tour during the Super Bowl

Beyoncé just pulled off a Super Bowl hat trick. In addition to releasing a new single and performing during the Half Time Show, Bey just announced that her Formation World Tour will launch on April 27th.

News about the tour leaked earlier this afternoon, leaving fans waiting with bated breath for the announcement:

The reveal was finally made during the Super Bowl telecast, and tickets will go up for presale on February 16th. This is a big deal for a few reasons. The first is that Beyoncé is already one of the biggest touring acts in the world, a fact that's supporting by her website being overloaded by fans since the announcement aired earlier this evening. The second is that she's going on tour without having an album to promote, which is virtually unheard of for most artists. Of course, since "Formation" is pretty much the song of the weekend at this point, it's safe to say that Beyoncé had the Super Bowl won even before it began.
