Beyonce to perform in the DR

US singing star Beyonce was in La Romana last week to celebrate her husband Jay-Z’s 40th birthday at Casa de Campo. Her visit coincided with her having received 10 nominations for the Grammy awards that will be presented in Los Angeles on January 31. The good news is that Beyonce is booked for a DR performance at the Olympic Stadium in Santo Domingo on 20 March 2010 as part of her 2010 World Tour. Only 15,000 tickets are being put on sale even though the stadium has the capacity for upwards of 40,000. This is a VIP Music Enterprise production. In Santo Domingo, Beyonce will be singing songs from her new CD, “I Am… Sasha Fierce.”
