Thursday: Since her last tour, Beyoncé has severed business ties with her longtime manager/father, given birth to her first child, released two new perfumes, performed at the Super Bowl halftime show, lip-synced the national anthem at President Obama's second inauguration, reunited with Destiny's Child for a recording session and scored a few R&B hits. This spring, she hit the road with the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, an extravaganza featuring an all-female band, glamorous outfits, sexy dancing and everything you'd expect from Queen Bey. (8 p.m. Thu. Xcel Energy Center, $47-$252.)
