Where can you get tickets?
Tickets for the North American leg of the tour will be available through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program. Tickets will go on sale Monday, Feb 6, with an exclusive presale to BeyHive members, according to a Live Nation press release.
Verified Fan registration is now open. Once you register, you’ll be placed in a lottery system that determines which fans get invited to purchase tickets. Registration alone doesn’t guarantee tickets. If you’re selected, you’ll get an access code the day before tickets go on sale. Everyone else will be placed on a waitlist. According to Live Nation, this process is intended to help Ticketmaster weed out the resellers and verify your account so that actual fans get priority to buy tickets.
Citi cardmembers will have a special Citi Presale after the Verified Fan process. Get more details here. Verizon will also offer an exclusive presale through their customer loyalty program Verizon Up.
Will Beyoncé be using Ticketmaster like Taylor Swift to sell tickets?
Yes, but given what happened with Taylor Swift’s Eras tour (and the fact it led to Congressional hearings about Ticketmaster’s practices), it seems very likely both Beyoncé and Ticketmaster would want to avoid repeating that mess. That most likely explains the usage of the Verified Fan system.
Where will Beyoncé be playing?
The Renaissance World Tour will hit 40 cities in North America and across Europe. Stops include Paris, London, Amsterdam, Toronto, Chicago, East Rutherford, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Houston, and many more.
What has Beyoncé said about the Renaissance World Tour?
She just announced it was happening with a post on February 1. Her website didn’t immediately contain any more details. But during the Wearable Art Gala in October 2022, she appeared to confirm it would start this summer, as a backstage tour with her mother Tina Lawson was up for auction at the event.
Will Beyoncé be performing at the Grammys (on February 5) and sharing more tour details there?
Not clear yet, but she is the most nominated artist at the ceremony. On January 21, Variety reported that “talks with show producers are ongoing for a possible onstage appearance” by Beyoncé.
What can we expect from the tour on stage?
Beyoncé hasn’t shared that yet either, but given the artistry she put into her recent Dubai show, it’s fair to say we can expect no less than excellence, elaborate costumes, and an incredible experience.
This post will be updated the moment more detail is released.
