Two of music’s biggest superstars are hitting the road for another collaborative world tour.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé‘s On the Run tour in 2014 was a massive success for the couple, but they haven’t performed together in such a long-term capacity since the release of 2016’s Lemonade, the album where Beyoncé opened up about her husband’s infidelity and its impact on their young family.

In a spurt of three Instagram posts Monday, Beyoncé announced that On the Run II will start June 6 and gave us some visual teasers. The black and white promo posters for the shows definitely have a desert vibe, and a reel with home videos of the couple during happy times reminds us how charming they can be together.

Tickets to all U.S. dates of the stadium tour go live on Ticketmaster March 19 and will most likely sell out instantly. The first On the Run Tour ticket averaged about $350 on secondhand sites like Stubhub, so fans are bracing themselves for crazy markups. Unsurprisingly, though, plenty of fans agree they’re willing to risk it all to see music’s reigning queen and king.

The North American branch of the tour kicks off July 25 in Cleveland, Ohio, and will run until October 2018.
