Married superstars Beyonce and Jay-Z may be plotting a "Mr. & Mrs. Carter Tour" for the U.S. and Europe, according to a variety of published reports in recent days.

According to Page Six , the award-winning pair will embark on a stadium trek in late June. An August performance at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA, is on the books, according to BET>, and other sources suggest a July 4 concert in New York City may be on the itinerary as well.

The hip-hop couple, who made a few unannounced appearances at Coachella earlier this month, recently wrapped up their own individual road trips. Beyonce's year-long "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour" sold more than $212 million from more than 1.8 million tickets to 126 concerts, according to Billboard, while Jay-Z's "Legends of Summer" trek with Justin Timberlake raked in an average of $5 million per concert on the 14-date itinerary.

Beyonce made history last December when she unexpectedly dropped her eponymous fifth album. The audio/visual mix, which sold more than 825,000 copies worldwide in three days, became the fastest-selling album in iTunes history.

Jay-Z's most recent collection, "Magna Carta Holy Grail," surfaced last July and marked his 12th studio release. The album, which features guest appearances by Frank Ocean, Nas, Justin Timberlake and Rick Ross, topped The Billboard 200, as well as the magazine's Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums and Top Tastemaker Albums charts.
