Tour Notes:

The Beyoncé & Jay-Z On the Run II tour, a.k.a. OTR II, followed up on the megastar couple’s 2014 co-headlining trek, On the Run. While the original OTR summer tour generated ticket sales topping $109 million from nearly a million attendees with a run of 21 shows — and just two gigs in Europe — OTR II more than doubled the number of attendees (2.17 million) and ticket revenues ($253.5 million) with a total 30 shows in North America and 18 gigs in Europe.
