Jay Z and Beyonce are going "on the run."

The parents of 2-year-old Blue Ivy Carter will be hitting the road together for the "On The Run Tour," the couple announced Monday morning on their official websites.

Beyonce later posted promotional art for the tour on her Facebook page. The image attracted over 47,000 likes in less than hour:



Beyonce recently landed on the cover of Time magazine for making this year's list of the "100 most influential people."

In 2013, Forbes named the 32-year-old "XO" singer and her "Holy Grail" rapper-husband, 44, the highest-earning celebrity couple of the year.

They are set to perform 16 shows this summer, beginning on June 25 in Miami, with a final concert planned for Aug. 5 in San Francisco.

Pre-sale tickets will be available to members of Beyonce's fan club beginning Tuesday at 8 a.m. ET. Debit and credit card customers of the tour's sponsor, Chase Bank, will also have early access to tickets, starting Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET.

Members of the general public will have access to begin buying seats on Friday.

A complete list of tour dates can be found here.
