Beyonce announces UK tour in 2014

The singer will play ten dates in the UK and Ireland next year

Beyoncé will be bringing back her Mrs Carter Show World Tour next year after new dates were added for early 2014.

The “Crazy In Love” singer is currently performing across North America but will return to the inevitable delight of fans for a series of ten shows in the UK.

The US pop star, who is married to rapper Jay Z, will kick off the second UK leg of her tour at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena on 20 February, before continuing through Birmingham and Manchester.

Beyoncé will play four shows at the O2 Arena between 28 February and 4 March, before closing in Dublin in mid-March.

Not one to leave the European sisterhood wanting, Beyoncé will visit Germany, Holland, Belgium, Spain and Portugal after her UK stint.

The "Irreplaceable" singer played 13 dates in the UK as part of her Mrs Carter Show World Tour earlier this year.

"Mrs Carter" is currently working on her hotly-awaited fifth studio album but a release date has yet to be announced.

New song “God Made You Beautiful” was recently revealed alongside her DVD documentary Life Is But A Dream.

Beyoncé recently embarked on a 22-day vegan challenge with Jay Z, despite being spotted in a meat-free restaurant wearing a fox fur coat.

Tickets for the Mrs Carter Show World Tour will go on general sale from Monday 16 December at 10am.
