It's the news the Bey Hive have been waiting for. Beyoncé is finally heading on a world tour this year to celebrate her renaissance — literally. Since the "Break My Soul" singer released her seventh solo album, titled "Renaissance" in July 2022, barely a week has gone by without fans questioning when news of an accompanying tour would be announced. And on 1 Feb. those prayers were answered.
Beyoncé teased the news early on her Instagram, with a photo taken from the epic "Renaissance" album art, alongside the caption, "RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR 2023" but no other details were revealed. Just two hours later, the full list of cities hosting Bey was officially unveiled along with dates and ticket info. She will be kicking off the tour in Stockholm, Sweden on 10 May, travelling around the UK and Europe before heading over to the US and ending on 27 Sept. in New Orleans.
Tickets went on general sale on 7 Feb. and already another date has been added due to to high demand. And fans could not contain their excitement — and stress — at trying to get the golden tickets. One Twitter user hilariously posted, "beyoncé is going on tour!!!! Gos pls, i will sell my daddy's entire side of the family for some tickets for my girl n i", while another wrote, "beyonce world tour?????? I can't function until I get tickets it's serious." Now let's be honest, demand is going to be through the roof. It's the first time Beyoncé has toured in five years, her last shows were part of the "On the Run II" tour with her husband, Jay-Z, in 2018, with the "Formation" tour prior which took place in 2016 to coincide with the "Lemonade" album.
Most recently, the 41-year-old Grammy-winning icon performed at the opening of Dubai's Atlantis The Royal hotel, even bringing her daughter Blue Ivy onstage for a sweet duet. But fans were quick to realise she omitted songs from her "Renaissance" album, leading to speculation that she would be debuting these live on an upcoming tour. It turns out, they were right.
