The venue will be staging a second concert this summer with global pop sensation Beyoncé performing live at the venue on Tuesday 5 July.
The American superstar follows on the heels of fellow chart topper Rihanna, who will play at the home of Lancashire County Cricket Club on Wednesday 29 June.
The highly-anticipated Formation World tour, promoted by Live Nation, presented by American Express and produced by Parkwood Entertainment, will kick off in North America on April 27 in Miami at Marlins Park with 21 additional stadium dates lined up throughout the United States. Old Trafford will be one of only five venues in the UK to welcome Beyoncé.
The former Destiny’s Child singer became a solo artist in 2003 with the release of her debut album Dangerously In Love, which established her as a solo artist worldwide, earned five Grammy Awards and featured the hit number-one singles Crazy In Love and Baby Boy.
The Texan has released five albums and has also starred in several Hollywood films. At the weekend she performed in front of a live global audience of more than 115 million during the half time show at the Super Bowl 50.
