Beyonce has had a boulevard named after her in Bermuda.

The new walkway at the National Sports Centre was origionally nicknamed 'Beyonce Boulevard' by construction workers, as it marks the spot where the singer made her entrance at the 2008 Music Festival there.

According to the site's Facility Manager Trevor Madeiros, a 'Beyonce Boulevard' street sign put up last week is still not official. "We had to tidy up the driveway for her to come through to perform — it was a construction site at the time," he told Bermuda's Royal Gazette. "Somebody called it Beyoncé Boulevard and everybody started using it…So many people use the name when giving directions to visitors that it finally got its own sign." He added: "It’s nothing really official. It’s an internal thing that we put up ourselves."

Meanwhile, Beyonce's UK and Irish tour sold out 12 minutes after going on sale last Friday (February 23). Tickets for the singer's 2013 'The Mrs Carter Show' tour, which calls at Birmingham, London and Manchester, were snapped up at lightning speed leaving many fans frustrated after the Ticketmaster UK crashed as thousands of fans bombarded the website hoping to see the singer in action.

Beyonce will play:

Birmingham LG Arena (April 26, 27)
London O2 Arena (29-30, May 1, 3-5)
Manchester Arena (May 7-9)
Dublin The O2 (11, 12)
