Israel Wants to Know: Is Beyonce Coming to Perform?

(Warning: Gratuitous Beyonce Gifs ahead.)

Shortly after Beyonce’s show stopping Super Bowl performance and announcement of her Formation world tour, blew up with talk of Queen Bey’s possible Holy Land stop in August.

By Tuesday, someone created a Facebook group called “Beyonce Israel” with 16,000 members and created an event publicizing Beyonce’s August 3 concert in Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon. As of this writing, 17,000 fans are attending the concert.

There’s just one teeny tiny problem: no Israel tour date has been announced.

Channel 2, Ynet news and i24 news have all reported that the “Single Ladies” singer is in talks with local organizers to finalize a deal soon, but Israelis have been heartbroken over false rumors about Beyonce’s tour before. They’ll believe it when they see it.
