Beyonce’s recently announced Formation World Tour will kick off this April in Miami, with concerts currently scheduled through July 31, 2016 in Europe. The first leg of the tour will finish up on June 14 in Detroit, Michigan. She has already sold out numerous stadiums, and added more shows to select cities. Tickets to see Beyonce are currently on sale now.

Since so many concerts have sold out, tickets to the highly anticipated Formation World Tour are rapidly rising in demand on the secondary market. According to the data found on TiqIQ, the overall average ticket price is $276. Her first stop at Marlins Ballpark in Miami, Florida on April 27 is currently averaging a ticket price of $314, with a "get-in" price for $64. Beyonce’s stop at Ford Field in Detroit is currently averaging $224 with some tickets as low as $70.

Other stops to see Beyonce across North America include: Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with the cheapest ticket at $38; TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with the lowest price at $55; and Carter Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the minimum price is $60.

The Formation World Tour, which consists of 40 dates, has already taken in over $100 million, and is shaping up to be one of the biggest tours in 2016. When comparing tickets with Super Bowl Halftime performance partners Coldplay and their A Head Full of Dreams Tour, and Adele’s highly anticipated first tour in five years in support of 25, tickets to see Coldplay come in at a close average of $280, whereas Tickets for Adele, are coming in at a significantly higher average price.

The highest grossing tour of 2015 by far was Taylor Swift's 1989 World Tour, in which she played 83 shows in 53 cities. It's unlikely that Queen Bey will play that many shows in 2016, but she is still sure to be one of the year's biggest earners. Here's a look at how Beyonce's past four tours have compared to the top sellers in each year from 2007 to 2014:
