Mrs. Carter brings her world tour – titled The Mrs. Carter World Tour – to the Yum! Center on December 12. If you are so oblivious to the current pop market as not to know who Mrs. Carter is, then you probably a.) don’t have any teen-aged to early twenties children; b.) are not in that age range yourself or c.) don’t listen to pop music, in which case, Mrs. Carter’s first name is an irrelevancy for this preview. For everyone else who knows it’s Beyoncé, you either have already gotten tickets, or are plotting to find tickets or you hate her because she broke up Destiny’s Child. Her seventeen Grammys and gazillion record sales make her arguably the No. 1 Contemporary Pop Artist of The Decade and Millenium (Billboard). There’ll be plenty of high-end choreography and flashy production values, so you’ll feel that you have gotten your money’s worth for the $48 to $256 tickets you bought.
