Just weeks later, Dead & Company announced a fall tour, with a new lineup featuring singer and guitarist John Mayer, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Otiel Burbridge, formerly of the Allman Brothers Band.

Billboard named her the Top Female Artist of the 2000s after she cultivated a catalog of hits that transcend chart achievements. Her songs “Crazy in Love,” “Irreplaceable,” and “Single Ladies” all topped the Hot 100 and helped Beyoncé become the queen of pop-culture pantheon. On stage, her dynamic, highly-choreographed performances have critics likening her to the best entertainers of the past and hailing her as one of the best entertainers in contemporary popular music.
Beyoncé will be performing at Citi Field for the first time, bringing her talent to the ballpark after her hugely successful On the Run Tour in 2014 and her appearance in tonight’s Super Bowl 50 halftime show.
