LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Hot on the heels of her praised Super Bowl performance, United States (US) singer Beyonce on Monday announced a world tour starting in April, the latest move in her carefully choreographed return to music.

The singer, who was watched by more than 100 million people as she performed at half-time in New Orleans on Sunday, is making a comeback after taking a year off following the birth of her first child with rapper husband Jay-Z in January 2012.

The Super Bowl was her second major public appearance this year after she performed at President Barack Obama's inauguration, and she is also presenting at the Grammy awards on Sunday and releasing a documentary about her life.

Her return to the world stage was temporarily derailed when she admitted that she sang with a pre-recorded track of the national anthem at Mr Obama's inauguration, but on Sunday there was no questioning her vocal skills and her live performance.
