Beyoncé out to prove she's irreplaceable
Fresh from an exhilarating half-time performance at the Super Bowl, Beyoncé has shrugged off the miming controversy of President Obama's inauguration and is set to show just how well she can sing live... with a world tour.

Beyoncé opens the UK leg of the Mrs Carter Show tour in Birmingham

Birmingham's LG Arena will be the opening venue for the UK leg of the Mrs Carter Show world tour on Friday April 26, 2013.

Insiders say this tour will be a "bigger" and "bolder" production than any of her previous shows.

During her last stop-off in Birmingham, the wife of rapper Jay-Z - whose real name is Shawn Carter - was enthralling for two hours with a dazzling show of costume changes plus a back catalogue of solo hits and songs from her Destiny's Child days.

There was even a video screen of images honouring the civil rights movement to a soundtrack of Beyoncé's cover of Etta James' At Last - a song she became synonymous with at President Obama's first inauguration.

Beyoncé has four chart-topping solo albums and 16 Grammy Awards to her name, while her previous I AM…WORLD TOUR was ranked number one on Billboard's Hot Tour chart.
