Beyoncé Announces 'Renaissance' 2023 World Tour

BeyHive, get your wallets ready. Beyoncé has confirmed that she will embark on a world tour in 2023 to support her latest album Renaissance. On Feb. 1, the pop star announced the tour would begin in Europe this May and conclude on July 8 at Toronto's Rogers Centre with back-to-back shows. Philadelphia, Nashville, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, New Orleans, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles are among the cities where the tour will stop. It will be Beyoncé's first extended tour since the On the Run tour in 2018, which made 48 stops in North America and Europe. Those shows were followed by the singer's memorable Coachella performance, which inspired Netflix's Homecoming concert film. Before embarking on the Renaissance tour, Beyoncé performed her first headlining concert in four years at the Atlantis the Royal hotel in Dubai's grand opening. Within hours of the private event, most of the show had been uploaded on social media despite requesting invite-only attendees not to capture footage. Renaissance tracks were notably absent from the private concert setlist, including the hit song "Break My Soul."

The tour announcement arrives as Ticketmaster is embroiled in a war with Taylor Swift fans, aka "Swifties." They encountered serious issues when attempting to purchase tickets for the singer's upcoming Eras tour. When pre-sale tickets for several stops on the tour began, the fans quickly encountered issues with Ticketmaster that prevented them from purchasing tickets. When they tried to obtain tickets, the Ticketmaster website froze or crashed. Even with pre-sale codes, several Swifties reported being unable to buy tickets. Numerous Swift fans took to social media en masse to lament the situation — so many that the controversy gained national attention, and Ticketmaster was brought before the United States Senate for questioning. It remains to be seen if the ticket sales company will soon feel the wrath of Beyoncé fans as well.
