Year after tour, Beyonce back for husband's festival

Year after tour, Beyonce back for husband's festival Year after tour, Beyonce back for husband's festival

Beyonce will play her first full show in a year as the pop superstar headlines a festival in Philadelphia founded by her husband, rap mogul Jay-Z, AFP reports.

R&B singer The Weeknd and alternative rock bands Death Cab for Cutie and Modest Mouse will also play the Budweiser Made in America festival on September 5-6.

Jay-Z founded the festival in 2012 with the support of Budweiser -- the popular American beer whose parent company is now Belgian -- and last year expanded to a second venue in Los Angeles on the same weekend.

The festival this year reverts to one location in Philadelphia, with part of the proceeds to go to United Ways charities in and around the fifth-most populous US city.

Beyonce played the festival in 2013 during a 132-date world tour. She went on a more selective tour last year with Jay-Z, which closed in Paris on September 13.

She has since played short performances, including at the Grammys and at the Stellar Awards for Gospel music, where she reunited her former band Destiny's Child.
