Beyonce and husband Jay Z will launch the co-headlining ''On the Run Tour'' on June 25 in Miami.

Beyonce made the announcement Monday. The stadium tour will visit Philadelphia; East Rutherford, N.J.; Chicago; and Los Angeles. It wraps Aug. 5 in San Francisco.

Tickets go on sale Friday. Pre-sale tickets go on sale Tuesday.

Beyonce and Jay Z have collaborated on a number of songs, including the hits "Crazy In Love," "'03 Bonnie & Clyde," ''Deja Vu," ''Part II (On the Run)" and the recent smash "Drunk In Love."

Beyonce released her ultra-successful self-titled fifth album late last year in surprise form. Jay Z, who toured with Justin Timberlake last year, also had success with the release of "Magna Carta Holy Grail."

Tickets for the July 24 Chicago show at Soldier Field will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Live Nation Entertainment said fans can visit Beyonce's official Facebook page and Jay Z's official Facebook page for more information on getting early access to tickets.

Live Nation also said "On the Run: Beyonce and Jay Z" will donate $1 from every ticket sold to help support students through the Shawn Carter Foundation, in partnership with #BeyGOOD.
