Mumbai, Oct 27 (IANS) Exactly seven months after Shakira rocked the city with her crooning and hip-shakes, Mumbai is set to be taken by storm by American pop sensation Beyonce Knowles.

Beyonce and her 10-member all-woman band will dance, croon and make the crowds swoon for two hours late Saturday at the sprawling MMRDA Grounds here as part of her much-awaited 'The Beyonce Experience - 2007 World Tour'.

The reigning R&B diva arrived here Friday night amidst much media and fan frenzy.

And the pop star's fans say they will reach the venue at least an hour before the concert to escape Mumbai's traffic snarls.

'This happens every time major international artists perform in Mumbai. The travel to and from the venue takes longer that the show itself,' said Sajan Abraham, who can't wait to see Beyonce perform.

The tickets for the much-publicised concert are priced at Rs.2,750 and Rs.1,650.

The mega event is being organised by Royal Challenge in partnership with DNA Networks, which had brought singer Shakira to Mumbai on March 27.

Beyonce, a member of Destiny's Child, released her first solo album - 'Dangerously in Love in 2003' - which won her five Grammy Awards.

The singer has also dabbled in Hollywood with films like 'The Pink Panther' and 'Dreamgirls'.
