Beyoncé Announces ‘Renaissance’ World Tour

This is not a drill: Beyoncé is heading on tour.

On Wednesday, the superstar singer announced her eagerly awaited “Renaissance World Tour” is coming with a post on her verified Instagram account.


On her official site, she states that the tour will kick off in Stockholm, Sweden, in May and span Europe before hitting Philadelphia in July. Currently, the tour concludes in New Orleans at Caesars Superdome in September. A tour announcement for Beyoncé’s seventh album, “Renaissance,” was long anticipated by her devoted fan base, the Bey Hive. In 2018, she and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, toured 48 cities across North America and Europe as part of the “On the Run II” tour.

Speculation that a new tour was coming reached fever pitch after Beyoncé performed at the Atlantis The Royal resort in Dubai recently.

Music lovers crowned Renaissance as No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last year, and it spawned two top 10 hits on the Hot 100, including “Break My Soul,” which topped the chart. It was also nominated for nine Grammys, the most for any nominee. With 28 trophy wins to her name, Bey is seeking more. In the categories of album of the year, song of the year, and record of the year, Bey is up against some stiff competition. In the race for album of the year, the R&B juggernaut will square off against Adele, Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, Bad Bunny, and more. A win in this category would serve as Beyonce’s first.

The Renaissance tour will be Bey’s first string of tour dates since her 2018 On the Run outing with husband Jay-Z and her first solo tour in more than six years. Ticket sales for the Live Nation-promoted tour will kick off with a TM Verified Fan Registration for the North American dates, which is open now and closes at different times based on the city. There will also be a Citi presale using Verified Fan as well as a Verizon Up presale.

    Op-Ed: Has Modern Hip-Hop Really Become More Destructive? Probably not.

    With a current millennial rapper facing down RICO chargers for the content of his lyrics (Young Thug), it seems reasonable that early rap fans would point to their being some credence in indicting lyrical content as being dangerous, offensive, brazen, and influential. And, to be fair, Young Thug’s lyrics are mild compared to some of the content coming from the Chicago and Jacksonville drill scenes, which tend to make fun of dead gang rivals openly, or some of the raw Soundcloud-based music, which tends to be incredibly overt in it’s handling of sexual themes a la Robb Bank$ or the deceased Xxxtentacion.
