Beyoncé has added three extra dates to her Mrs Carter UK tour.

The 32-year-old singer has been forced to add a second gig in Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham next year due to a high demand in tickets.

The tour will support her new album 'Beyoncé', which was released unannounced across the globe last Friday (13.12.13), and features collaborations from husband Jay Z, her daughter Blue Ivy Carter, rapper Drake, Justin Timberlake, and her former Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

The 'Halo' hitmaker recently revealed why she decided to release the album through a non-traditional method with no promotion.

She said last week: ''I didn't want to release my music the way I've done it. I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There's so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn't want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it's ready and from me to my fans.''

Beyoncé will kick off her UK tour in Glasgow in February before finishing up in Dublin, Ireland, in March.
