Beyoncé got a little emotional on the way to Miami's Marlins Park before the start of her first-ever solo stadium tour on April 27th. "I've dreamed of this my whole life," she said. Her Formation Tour is her most impressive yet: a politically-charged spectacle built around her stunning new LP, Lemonade, and featuring darker versions of familiar hits, as well as a 50-foot-tall tower of video screens that shoots flames and projects psychedelic images. The 40-plus-date tour has already grossed more than $200 million. "It's a home run," says the tour's promoter, Arthur Fogel. "It could be the most successful tour of the year."
