With just days left in the North American leg of Beyonce’s and Jay-Z’s “On The Run II” tour, Queen Bey is already preparing to be booked and busy, by the final tour stop. 

In fact, according to Variety, just one week after the final performance of the four-month tour, Beyoncé will hit the stage at the City of Hope gala on October 11, in L.A. 

As the event celebrates independent research and treatment for cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening diseases, the organization will also recognize the power couple’s longtime publisher and former chairman and CEO of Warner/Chappell Music, Jon Platt, in awarding him the Spirit of Life award. 

While Bey is scheduled to grace the stage at the event, Jay is set to present the prestigious award to Platt, with Pharrell Williams set to host the entire event. 

“Beyoncé agreed to perform without a moment’s hesitation, and that wasn’t just for me,” Platt said,  according to the publication. “She wanted to be part of our celebration for the patients, doctors, scientists, and nurses who make City of Hope a place where miracles can happen. That’s what makes her a cultural icon. She’s not only a genius, in a class of her own, but she has a phenomenal heart and soul, and she knows how to use them. This event is going to be one for the ages.” 

Meanwhile, the Queen, herself, released a statement about the event, expressing her excitement to be part of the celebration. 

“I am happy to be in a room that celebrates Jon and the important work he does behind the scenes,” Beyoncé said. “City of Hope has done much-needed research and has provided quality care for patients for over a hundred years. I am honored to be a part of an event that represents an organization that works so tirelessly caring for others first and foremost.”
