NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - She has become simply known as "Queen Bey" and she will reign over the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Saturday night.
Beyoncé is back in New Orleans and the multi-dimensional superstar is bringing her biggest show ever.
The Formation World Tour started back in April in Miami and is close to wrapping up.
This is Beyoncé's first solo tour since a 2013 tour with her husband Jay-Z. The "Queen" is supporting her sixth straight number one album "Lemonade" and you can expect a healthy dose of material from the worldwide hit. The stage and light show promises to be impressive and you can expect many costume changes.
Since breaking away from the female group Destiny's Child, Beyoncé has been a hit machine starting with her solo debut in 2003 "Dangerously in Love" featuring Jay Z.

Her popularity seemed to soar with each passing album and hit single. None more so than the triple Grammy winning song "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) which became an anthem for women looking for their men to commit. The video also became one of the most popular at the time and won MTV's "Video of the Year."
