The Formation World Tour is Beyoncé's seventh concert tour, launched in 2016 to promote her sixth studio album Lemonade, released 23 April, 2016. The tour was announced following Beyoncé's performance at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, with all the shows performed in stadiums; the title of the tour comes from the lead single off Lemonade, "Formation".


Immediately after her performance at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show on February 7, 2016, Beyoncé announced the tour, which would kick off in Miami on April 27, 2016, with pre-sales going on sale just two days after the performance on February 9, 2016.


The stage for the tour was designed by "Tait Towers"; the set included a 60 foot tall rotating cuboid with video screen walls; this mainly projected Beyoncé onto it, to allow everyone in the stadium to see her, as well as screen projection in some songs, mainly the interludes; the video cube, nicknamed the "Monolith", took 4 minutes to do a full rotation. The rotations of the box were said to represent a new chapter of the show, in a similar chapter line to that of Lemonade.

The stage also featured a runway, which doubled as a treadmill, between the main stage and the B-stage; this treadmill was also designed thje most unpredictable of weather conditions found in outdoor stadiums; the B-stage held 2,000 gallons of water which takes 10 minutes to fill up; this particular feature is used during the encore, from "Freedom" through to "Halo".
