Beyonce and Jay Z, the most famous couple in music, have revealed the surprise details of a long-rumored joint summer concert tour titled "On the Run" and it includes quite the Houston shocker.

The duo's playing Minute Maid Park of all venues on July 18 for what figures to be the most anticipated Houston concert of the summer.

That surprise Houston stop is one of just 16 dates initially announced. The North American tour will start on June 25 in Miami and continue through August 5, with every concert taking place in either a football or baseball stadium.

Houston saw both local girl Beyonce and Jay-Z perform in separate sold-out shows last December, but now they're doubling the star power — and very likely, how hard it's going to be to get in.

As always, there are myriad pre-sale opportunities, including ones for members of Beyonce's fan club (8 a.m. Tuesday) and Chase credit card members (10 a.m. Tuesday). The general public doesn't get its crack at tickets until Friday.
