Beyonce is going on a world tour and is stopping off in Dublin.

The American star, who performed at the Super Bowl on Sunday night, will play will play Croke Park on Saturday July 9 as part of the Formation World Tour.

The 34-year-old surprised fans by releasing new single Formation on Saturday on Tidal, the streaming service she co-owns with husband Jay Z, among others.

Normally, a subscription to the service is required but the track was made available to download for free.

Beyonce appeared at the Super Bowl with a team of dancers to perform Formation for the first time, and narrowly avoided falling during her lively dance routine.

She visibly lost her balance but composed herself in time to continue with the performance without missing a beat.

An advert for the tour appeared on American TV seconds after her performance with Coldplay and Bruno Mars finished.

The tour is expected to support Beyonce's upcoming sixth studio album, the follow-up to her 2013 self-titled surprise release.

The music superstar, who is known for hits such as Crazy In Love and Halo, will take to the stage for the tour's debut show on April 27 in Miami.

She will play in the UK for five dates before coming to Dublin. Tickets go on sale next week.
