A leaked image may have revealed the name of Beyoncé’s next tour. A graphic posted on the U.K. website of concert promoter Live Nation shows a brand new photo of the R&B diva dressed up to the nines with the words, “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” next to her (The photo has since been removed).
The title is obviously a reference to her husband Jay-Z’s last name. The couple will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary on April 4.
While there has been no official confirmation on the tour or a new album, Bey did tease that an announcement would be made following her Super Bowl halftime show. When asked during Thursday’s press conference when she would tour, she replied, “I would say soon and I may have an announcement after the performance.”
Beyoncé hit the road last in 2010 on the “I Am…” world tour to promote her third album I Am… Sasha Fierce. She will headline the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Presented by HTC Corporation, the “777 Tour” will host intimate events in 7 cities including one in the U.K. co-sponsored by River Island.
Unapologetic will be available for pre-order at iTunes on November 6. The album will also be packaged in limited edition bundles, the Diamonds Box and the Diamonds Executive Platinum Box, containing never-before-seen photos, art, and custom accessories.
If that wasn’t enough, Rihanna will perform on “Saturday Night Live” on November 10 and the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on December 4.

Rihanna is closing out the year with some extra zeroes in her bank account. The pop superstar’s “LOUD” tour was among the top 10 tours of the year, grossing a whopping $90 million.
The international trek, which wrapped before Christmas, lands at No. 7 on Pollstar’s Top 25 Worldwide Tours of 2011. The “We Found Love” singer played 99 shows in 78 cities and averaged $75 per ticket during the six-month-long jaunt, which hit North America, South America, and Europe.
“Brazil, this is my very first time here and I’m so excited to share this moment with you,” said Rihanna during the first day of the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro on Friday night (Sept. 23). With her brown hair in a ponytail and wearing red, white, and black striped shorts and a halter top, the leggy pop star set the park on fire with hit after hit, opening with “Only Girl (In the World),” spanking her male dancer during the fiery “S&M,” and storming the stage on a pink tank for “Hard.”
