Beyonce announced during halftime of the Super Bowl (like the boss diva that she is) that she’ll be embarking on a world tour this year, delighting her fans across the globe.  If you’re like me, you took a break from watching the halftime commercials and frantically scrolled through your phone to see if she’d include a NYC stop on this tour, and when it might be. And lo and behold, not only will Beyonce be blessing New York with her presence, she’ll be stopping by our beloved borough, Queens, on June 7 at Citi Field!

So, the most important question: How do you get tickets? The answer: With a little planning, and a LOT of luck.

Tickets go on sale to the general public via Ticketmaster on Tuesday, February 16th at 10am. (Set an alarm on your calendar and phone NOW!) However, if you had your heart broken trying to snag Adele tickets a few weeks ago in the general sale, you’ll want to take any steps necessary to be ahead of the game.

Live Nation is holding a mobile app presale starting this Friday, February 12, at 10:00am, so be sure to download the app now, and once again, add the onsale times to your calendar. There’s nothing worse than missing out on a great event simply because you forgot to purchase tickets!

If you are going the general sale route, a few quick tips that could increase your chances:

Register for a Ticketmaster Account Ahead of Time

To make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible, register for your account before 9:58am on Friday. If you already have an account, check to make sure your payment and address details are up to date.

-Multitask Your Technology

Unless you’ll get strange looks from your co-workers, use both the Ticketmaster website, mobile app, and, if possible, landline phone. (Or the phone of someone who isn’t trying to get tickets. Although you may want to re-consider why you’re friends with them if they aren’t trying to see Beyonce in Queens!)

-Check Your Internet Connection

If you’ve been having spotty service lately, get yourself to a location with lightning-fast Internet speed. In addition, only open one Ticketmaster browser at a time. It may seem counter-intuitive, but the site has strict anti-bot technology that could cancel your tickets if you do.

And most importantly: let us know if you get tickets! We’re happy to tag along :)
