Fresh from her Super Bowl success, Beyoncé has announced her first tour in the UK since 2009's 'I Am... Sasha Fierce'.
The multi-platinum artist will perform six UK dates as part of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour - named after her husband Sean Carter aka Jay-Z.
The tour will come in support of her next studio album, which has yet to be given a name or release date, beginning in Serbia on 15 April, with the UK leg kicking off on 26 April in Birmingham.
She will then take her booty-shaking dance routines to London's The O2 for four nights followed by one night in Manchester on 7 May.
The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour is slated to run for almost one year, with Bey heading to Dublin, Ireland for two nights - 11 and 12 May - followed by the US this summer, as well as Latin America, Australia and Asia in the second half of 2013.

On Sunday night, Beyoncé reminded the world just what a performer she is as she wowed with a spectacular halftime show at the Super Bowl in New Orleans, both solo and alongside her Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
She then penned an inspirational 'thank you' note to her fellow Super Bowl performers telling them it was an "honour" to take to the stage alongside such "phenomenal ladies".
Posted on Twitter, it reads: "What a proud day for African American women! Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, JHud (Hudson) you are all beautiful, talented and show so much class! It was an honour to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies. Love Beyonce."
The Super Bowl was kicked off by Beyoncé's 'Dreamgirls' co-star Jennifer Hudson, who paid tribute to the victims of the December shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School by performing 'America the Beautiful' with the school's choir, and Alicia Keys sang the US national anthem while playing a grand piano.
