Pop superstar Beyonce is preparing to return to the stage in May for her first concerts since becoming a mother at the start of the year.
The Crazy In Love hitmaker scaled back her work commitments towards the end of last year and gave birth to her daughter Blue Ivy, with her rapper husband Jay-Z, in January.

She’s been keeping a low profile ever since, but now the singer has set her live comeback for Memorial Day weekend, when she’ll perform on three consecutive nights at the new Revel casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The latest addition to the East Coast’s gambling mecca will be open to the public from 2 April, but bosses will stage a grand opening on 25 May with a special show by Beyonce at the venue’s Ovation Hall. She will also hit the stage on 26 and 27 May.

The star’s last concerts took place in August, when she played four dates at New York’s Roseland Ballroom to promote her latest album, 4.
