The Mrs. Carter Show comes to Washington. Now it's finally D.C's. turn to experience Beyonce in all her hair-flipping, hand-shaking and hip-thrusting glory.

For those following along, the world tour has been filled with all the glitz, glamour and drama (from the early cancellations abroad to the hair-fan incident) that one could hope for from the Queen Bey.

Tickets for B’s two shows at Verizon Center seemed sold out for weeks before the concerts, but as the dates have creeped closer, choice seats have been popping up through Ticketmaster. If you’re hoping to go to Tuesday's show (and have $280 burning a hole in your pocket), you can now score lower-bowl seats with a prime view of those incredible abs.

But preparing for a concert of this magnitude isn't as simple as scoring tickets. There are dance moves to learn and outfits to style. Here are some of our favorite fan pictures from across the country:
