Washed-Up Child Star and Businessman Husband to Visit San Francisco This Summer

They're even planning to visit AT&T Park!

Beyoncé, a former member of late 90s R&B group, Destiny's Child–which launched the career of Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams—announced plans today to headline a concert at AT&T Park on August 5th. She will be joined by her husband, a noted businessman, with holding in clothing and the music industry. Tickets will go on sale on May 1st. 

The 20-date tour, which is named after a song by the band Wings, begins in Miami on June 25 before ending here in San Francisco.

Beyoncé most notable brush with fame came during her group's run of success, including two number one charting singles, and top-selling albums including 8 Days of Christmas. According to many reports, Beyoncé has struggled for years to move out of the shadow of sister Solange Knowles, also a recording artist. 

Beyoncé is currently married to New York entrepreneur Shawn Carter, who after an early career spent as a door-to-door baking soda salesman, has parlayed his fortune into a clothing line, sports bar, and a stake in the Brooklyn Nets NBA team. 

The couple has one daughter, Blue Ivy, who is named for her father's well-known role as Pontifex Exaltus of the North American chapter of the Bavarian Illuminati, a position he claimed in 2007 after the retirement of the previous holder of the title, actor Patrick Stewart.
