Finally, Brits are about to receive the blessing of Beyonce’s presence, as Mrs. Carter has announced the UK dates of her 2014 European tour. Beyonce will play seven shows throughout February and March, NME reports. She will kick off the tour with dates in Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester, before playing four consecutive shows at London’s O2 Arena.

There’s even more good news from Bey’s camp, as Columbia Records (Beyonce’s label) boss Rob Stringer has made a tentative announcement of a new album coming sometime in 2014: “At the beginning of next year we’ve got Broken Bells and Bruce Springsteen. Then we’ve got Lea Michele from Glee coming, and we’ve got Foster The People up next. Then we’ve got Pharrell and Solange, and obviously, at some point Beyoncé will put a record out, and when she does it will be monumental. So we’re in really, really good shape."

There's "obviously" a new album coming.

Stringer wouldn’t be the only one thrilled at the prospect of another Beyonce album, but even without a record out this past year, the diva has cemented her place in the spotlight. In 2013, she released several new songs, including Standing On The Sun, which was featured in Bey’s own H&M ad and the pumped up Grown Woman. And who could forget that Super Bowl Halftime Show, which ended up being the talk of social media and showbiz sites for weeks to come.

Point being, attending a Beyonce concert should be on your bucket list. The full UK schedule is as follows:

Glasgow SSE Hydro Arena (February 20)

Birmingham LG Arena (23)

Manchester Arena (25)

London O2 Arena (February 28, March 1, 2, 4)
