Beyonce to Perform 3 Shows Memorial Day Weekend

Beyonce to Perform 3 Shows Memorial Day Weekend
Music News

Beyoncé is taking more than the recommended six weeks maternity leave. But come Memorial Day, the world’s hardest-working mother will be right back at it when she plays a series of special intimate shows at Atlantic City’s newest attraction.

Four months after giving birth to Blue Ivy Carter, B will play a trio of exclusive shows to help launch the $2.4 billion Revel entertainment center on May 25, 26 and 27. The singer’s first shows since 2011 will take place in the smoke-free Revel’s signature performance space, Ovation Hall, which was designed by a team of Cirque du Soleil veterans. The 5,050-capacity space features an unobstructed view for every patron and a state-of-the-art immersive sound system. (Tickets for the shows go on sale on April 6 at 10 a.m.)

While hubby Jay-Z has continued to play the occasional show — including a gig down at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, last week — Beyoncé has kept a lower profile, preferring to nest in New York with the couple’s baby girl. Her name did pop up a few weeks ago, though, as a potential castmember in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming all-star flick “One Hit Wonders.” The musical comedy could potentially star B’s buddy, Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz and “Saturday Night Live” castmember Andy Samberg.

Regardless of how this film shakes out, Beyoncé is reportedly already thinking about her music career again. Producer Ryan Tedder shared that the singer is prepping several follow-up albums to 2011′s 4.

“The conversations about her next album, literally, just started and there [are] two projects happening,” Tedder said.”All I can say is, you kind of feed her the best that you have, and she’s this phenomenal filter and she takes it all in.” One of those albums may be the soundtrack for the upcoming Clint Eastwood film “A Star Is Born,” which the singer is also attached to star in.
