Beyoncé will return to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this summer when her “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” lands in New Orleans for one of three nights at the “Essence Music Festival.”

So far, the folks at Essence haven’t said which night of the July 4-7 festival will host Beyoncé, who played this year’s Super Bowl headline show at the Superdome. Already gracing Essence’s lineup are Jill Scott, Maxwell, New Edition, Charlie Wilson, Keyshia Cole, LL Cool J, Brandy and many more.
As you can guess, snagging Beyoncé for any festival, let alone Essence, is a pretty big deal.
“We are incredibly excited to welcome Beyoncé back to the 2013 Essence Festival lineup,” Essence Communications President Michelle Ebanks said. “She is truly the ultimate Essence woman.
“If you missed her tour de force in New Orleans, please join us this Fourth Of July weekend so that you can experience it live for yourself at the Essence Festival. The Essence Festival features the best in music, arts and entertainment – all of which Beyoncé captures through her extraordinary gifts.”
Three-day weekend tickets for Essence are currently available. Click here for more info.
