Beyonce is back on the grind as she prepares for four sell-out shows over Memorial Day Weekend. The shows will mark her first performances since she performed at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC in August of last year, and since giving birth to Blue Ivy in January. There will be one show every night from Friday through Monday. Originally planning to perform only three shows in Ovation Hall at the Revel Entertainment Complex, one more shows were added due to overwhelming demand.
The 5,500-seat venue is completely sold out for each night. Tickets were on sale for $95 to $495, but the New York Daily News reports that hardcore fans have been shelling out up to $1,700 on websites such as StubHub.
Along with the Memorial Day weekend performances, Beyonce is busy working on material for follow-up projects to her last CD “4.” Producer Ryan Tedder told MTV News, “The conversations about her next album just started. There (are) two projects happening.”
Beyonce was slated to begin filming the Clint Eastwood movie “A Star is Born” in 2011, but production halted due to her pregnancy. The project is scheduled to go forward, complete with a soundtrack that Bey is rumored to take part in. Adding to the growing list of obligations, Beyonce is also rumored to be cast in “One Hit Wonder,” a movie directed by Ryan Murphy, creator of the musical television series “Glee.”
