Following the surprise announcement of Beyoncé's upcoming Formation World Tour, fans are dying to see their queen live. Several fans are taking matters into their own hands by starting GoFundMe pages to raise money for concert tickets. The craziest part is that people are actually donating. College student Tomachi Onyewuchi has already raised $217 of her requested $300 to see Bey live. Some, like Addie Spann, are taking it to the extreme. Spann is looking to raise $5,000 so that she can catch the tour in the front row.
Of course, it isn't going so well for everybody. A U.S. Navy veteran named Rover Bentley launched a page to attend one of Beyoncé's shows, writing, "I wrote a check for my life, so Im asking that you help my conquire another life goal." While some thanked him for his service, other page visitors dragged Bentley for the page and accused him of using his position to guilt trip people into donating. Since then, Bentley has taken down his GoFundMe page and posted the following video claiming that he actually has the money and the campaign was a joke. Interesting. Tickets are available in advance to Beyhive members starting today and will be available to the general public on Feb. 15 in Europe and Feb. 16 in North America.
