Beyonce has proved she is still in popular demand with tickets for her upcoming Formation world tour selling out in minutes in the UK. With fans still desperate to see the singer perform, the Drunk In Love singer has added a second date at Wembley Stadium.

Tickets for the singer's anticipated tour went on sale at 9am in the UK on 16 February but they were snapped up within 30 minutes, including the Wembley show on 2 July. Due to high demand, Beyonce, 34, will also perform at the venue on 3 July with tickets for the added date going on general sale from 23 February at 9am. Tickets will be available from various ticket outlets including Ticketmaster.co.uk.

Those who were unable to get tickets have also complained of the high prices, with one fan commenting on Twitter: "Dissapointed that @Beyonce #BeyonceFormationTour tickets are SO EXPENSIVE." Another stated: "A stadium of 90,000, and tickets that expensive is surely greed? Most artists you can watch in decent seats for around £50/£6," while another fan grumbled: "Beyoncé tickets so expensive give poor people a chance Bey."

Beyonce will launch the Formation world tour with the North American leg on 27 April in Miami, Florida before moving onto stadiums in Atlanta, New York, Houston, Santa Clara, Philadelphia and Detroit. The singer's European leg will kick off on 28 June in Sunderland, England before proceeding to Cardiff, London, Manchester, Glasgow and Dublin.

The tour is named after Beyonce's new single Formation, which debuted before the Super Bowl half-time show earlier in February and features the singer celebrating her African-American heritage while addressing racial tension and female empowerment. Formation is expected to feature on the singer's sixth album, for which details are yet to be revealed, however her long-time stylist Ty Hunter revealed he has listened to the record and promises fans that it is "beyond awesome, it's great".

Beyonce last hit the road in 2013 with the mammoth Mrs Carter Show tour which spanned 132 dates before she embarked on a joint trek with her husband Jay Z, titled On The Run, in 2014.
