Beyonce heading to Manchester for Emirates Old Trafford summer gig

Superstar is only playing five concerts in the UK

Beyonce is heading to Manchester to play a stadium gig at Lancashire Country Cricket Club's ground.

The Single Ladies singer will play at Emirates Old Trafford on Tuesday, July 5 as part of her Formation World Stadium Tour.

She last appeared in the city for sold-out shows at Manchester Arena in February 2014.

Old Trafford will be one of only five venues to welcome the former Destiny’s Child star - after Rihanna plays a show there on June 29.

The club’s chief executive Daniel Gidney said: “We are delighted to be hosting two of the world’s greatest female artists at Emirates Old Trafford within the space of a week where in the region of 100,000 guests will have a fantastic time watching both Rihanna and Beyoncé.

“To have two such renowned stars performing at Emirates Old Trafford, following on from last year’s sold out Foo Fighters concert, firmly underlines our reputation as a world class, multi-purpose sporting, entertainment and conference and events venue, which can cater from as few as five people all the way up to 50,000.”

Tickets go on pre-sale from Tuesday, February 9 at 10am via Livenation, with any remaining tickets going on general sale from 9am on Tuesday, February 16.
