Beyonce Announces First Live Dates Since Giving Birth

Rolling Stone

Beyoncé has announced plans to return to the stage for the first time since giving birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, earlier this year. The singer will play a series of three concerts over Memorial Day weekend at Revel Resorts, a new casino in Atlantic City. The shows will be fairly intimate for the arena-packing star, as the venue only has 5,000 seats.

Beyoncé's last run of live dates was a residency at Manhattan's Roseland Ballroom in August. Those gigs, which featured the singer performing her most recent album 4 in its entirety along with a long medley of hits, was released late last year as a DVD.
