Beyoncé Knowles and husband Jay Z recently confirmed that they will indeed embark on a summer tour together, after months of speculation. Both made the declaration on their respective websites with a promotional image featuring the power couple wearing ski masks. Officially titled the On The Run Tour, little else is known about what The Carters have planned, but lets cross our fingers that its more of this.

The two recently wrapped individual tours that supported their latest albums: Jay closed out 52 dates for his “Magna Carta… Holy Grail” in January, while Bey wrapped her “Mrs. Carter Show” tour in March.

The couple has performed their hit single, “Drunk in Love,” together at a string of high-profile shows, including this year’s Grammy Awards, a DirecTV Super Bowl party and Beyoncé’s O2 Arena gig in London on Feb. 28.

Talking business: According to Policy Mic’s Zak Cheney-Rice, Beyoncé’s recently wrapped world tour grossed “well over $200 million,” while legs of Jay Z’s Magna Carta tour sold out so quickly — “within seconds,” according to reports — he had to add more stops. Forbes estimates that Jay Z personally brought home over $1.5 million for Legends of Summer tour show’s 12 stops, which cumulatively grossed almost $70 million. Looks like the Knowles-Carter household income is set for a massive boost in coming months. Call them the ’14 Bonnie and Clyde.

The 16-date “On the Run” tour will kick off on June 25 in Miami and wrap up in San Francisco on Aug. 5, just after they perform for Los Angeles fans at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on Aug. 2

The New York Post first reported the news earlier this month.

With a plainly missing* stop at Barclay’s Center in Jay Z’s hometown of Brooklyn, fans should keep an eye out on new developments. Tickets to catch the Carters On The Run have yet to all go on sale. But in the meantime, catch up with them through the years with an AAOP.me Jay Z and Beyoncé #MusicMonday playlist.
