The announcement photo may look familiar to fans, as she donned the same glittery attire on the cover of her seventh studio album. Bey also added “Renaissance World Tour” on her Instagram bio, further accenting the news. Last week, Beyonce performed a full concert for the first time in four years at a luxury resort in Dubai in front of influencers and journalists. The 19-song set included a collaboration with her oldest daughter Blue Ivy as the two performed “Brown Skin Girl,” which earned them a Grammy two years ago for best music video.

Crowned a triumphant win by music lovers, Renaissance stormed to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last year and rattled off two Hot 100 top 10 hits, including her chart-topper “Break My Soul.” The dance-centric album also notched nine Grammy nominations, the most for any nominee for this year’s ceremony. Bey is looking to rack up more trophy wins, as she currently sits at a staggering 28 wins. Nominated for album of the year, song, and record of the year, Bey is facing some stout competition , especially in the former. The R&B juggernaut will tango against Adele, Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, Bad Bunny, and more for album of the year. A win in this category would serve as Beyonce’s first. The 65th Grammy Awards will occur Sunday night in Los Angeles at 8 pm EST.

Beyoncé returned to the stage for first time in four years in January

Last month, Beyoncé made her return to the stage and performed at the opening of the Atlantis The Royal hotel in Dubai. Despite the luxury experience, the singer left fans wanting more, as she did not perform any songs from "Renaissance," The Hollywood Reporter reported.

The invitation-only event marked her first concert in more than four years. She last performed at the  Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 event in 2018.

Beyoncé dominates Grammy nominations

The singer's tour announcement comes days ahead of the Grammys where Beyoncé leads the 2023 lineup with nine nominations, including best dance/electronic album ("Renaissance"), best R&B performance ("Virgo’s Groove") and best traditional R&B performance ("Plastic Off the Sofa"). 

With 28 wins and 88 total career nominations, Beyoncé now ties her husband, rapper Jay-Z , for the most nominations in Grammy history. If Beyoncé picks up four or more awards this year, she will surpass the late Georg Solti for the most Grammy wins of all time. (The Hungarian-born conductor holds the record with 31.)

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have got "to be the most intense power couple in the history of music," Recording Academy president Harvey Mason Jr. Mason said after the nominations were revealed. "That’s music and Grammy royalty – that’s the royal family."

Their combined 176 nominations are "absolutely a testament to their talent, to their level of excellence, to their work ethic, to their level of greatness over a long period of time. I don’t even know what the next (leading) couple would be, but it’s not anywhere close.”

Beyoncé's 'Break My Soul.' Taylor Swift's 'Anti-Hero.'  These are the 10 best songs of 2022, ranked.

Beyoncé noticeably was not nominated in any of the music video categories for the Grammys, having not released any album visuals for "Renaissance" since its debut.

Beyoncé Announces Renaissance World Tour

The star’s first solo tour since 2016 will start May 10 in Stockholm.

For the first time since 2016 — a world before Beychella , Covid-19 and “Renaissance” — Beyoncé will headline a solo tour, the singer announced in a social media post on Wednesday.

Beginning on May 10 in Stockholm, and continuing in Europe through June before coming to North America, the Renaissance World Tour, in support of her seventh solo album, will run for at least 40 dates, largely in stadiums, according to dates posted to Beyoncé’s website . The tour includes one night at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey (July 29) and one at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. (Sept. 2) amid stops in Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto, Atlanta, Phoenix and Miami.

Limited tickets for certain tour dates will go on sale beginning Monday for members of Beyoncé’s BeyHive fan club, followed by the staggered release of additional tickets by market, using a complex registration system for various tiers of buyer.

The tour, produced by Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment and promoted by Live Nation, will use Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan system , which aims to limit bots and professional scalpers, marking one of the first major tests for Ticketmaster since extraordinary demand for early tickets to Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour last year led to fan backlash and regulatory scrutiny . At a Senate Judiciary hearing last month spurred by the botched presale, artists, fans and politicians cast Live Nation Entertainment, the concert industry giant that owns Ticketmaster, as a monopoly that hinders competition and harms consumers.

Beyoncé’s shows will be the singer’s first live events available to the public since the On the Run II tour with her husband, Jay-Z, in 2018, tied to the surprise release of a joint album, “Everything Is Love,” by the duo billed as the Carters. Beyoncé last toured alone behind her previous solo album, “Lemonade,” in 2016. Two years later, she headlined the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

That show — which went on to be released as “Homecoming” (2019), a live album and concert film — was called “rich with history, potently political and visually grand” in a review by the New York Times critic Jon Caramanica. “By turns uproarious, rowdy, and lush. A gobsmacking marvel of choreography and musical direction.”

In the years since, Beyoncé has surfaced intermittently, including with songs like “Black Parade,” which won a Grammy Award for best R&B performance, and “Be Alive,” which appeared in the movie “King Richard” and was nominated for an Oscar. Last year, in a taped performance, Beyoncé performed the song at the 94th annual Academy Awards.

But the singer made a return to the pop mainstream in earnest with the July 2022 release of “Renaissance,” a dance-floor-oriented album that she said was inspired by the L.G.B.T.Q. community and has spawned hits like “Break My Soul” and “Cuff It.” At the Grammy Awards on Sunday, Beyoncé is nominated nine times , with a chance to become the most-awarded artist in history.

Upon its release, the singer called “Renaissance” part of a “three act project” that she recorded during the pandemic. “My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment,” she wrote of the album, which was billed as Act I. “A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom.”

Major music touring has largely recovered, especially at its highest levels, since the Covid-19 pandemic. According to the industry trade publication Pollstar , touring grossed a record-setting $6.28 billion last year, up more than 13 percent from 2019, due in part to pent-up fan demand, inflation and major acts like Bad Bunny, Elton John and Harry Styles.

In addition to Beyoncé’s shows, this year will see blockbuster tours from artists including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Metallica, Morgan Wallen and Madonna.

Last month, Beyoncé proved more polarizing than usual when she headlined the grand opening of a luxury hotel in Dubai, performing for an invite-only collection of guests, including influencers and journalists.

While some fans decried the optics of taking a major payday in a place that criminalizes homosexuality — “Beyoncé’s Dubai performance isn’t just an affront to LGBTQ+ fans, but workers’ rights in the UAE,” The Guardian declared — others noted that the singer’s set list did not yet include songs from “Renaissance.”

An earlier version of this article misstated the year Beyoncé headlined Coachella. It was 2018, not 2016.

Beyoncé Rides Her Bedazzled Horse Into Canada for Triumphant Tour Kickoff

By Richard Trapunski

Richard Trapunski

The North American leg of Beyoncé ’s Renaissance tour was already a hit before she ever stepped foot onstage at the Rogers Centre. 

Saturday was the first of two consecutive nights at the Toronto stadium, but the buzz was growing Wednesday with the opening of a pop-up shop selling exclusive tour merch at luxury retailer Holt Renfrew. By the weekend, bars, clubs and tourist attractions were filled with superfans who had traveled from all over America to catch the concert — drawn as much by the prospect of seeing an early tour date as by the lower ticket prices afforded by the relatively weaker Canadian dollar. 

Editor’s picks

The 250 greatest guitarists of all time, the 500 greatest albums of all time, the 50 worst decisions in movie history, every awful thing trump has promised to do in a second term.

The response was deafening, but it was a relatively quiet start. Rather than the celebratory house anthems that were to come, she started by showing off her legendary pipes with a mini-set of ballads that started with “Dangerously in Love,” a Destiny’s Child song that later became the title of her debut solo album. She pulled the classic lie-down-on-the-piano move and hit Minnie Ripperton-style high notes in “1+1” and even cracked a slight unrehearsed smile by the audience’s full-blast singalong for “I Care.” If that suggested this would be a career-spanning set, though, it wasn’t. This was a fully-composed two-and-a-half-hour concert experience centered mostly around one album — an unabashedly celebratory, unabashedly queer ode to Black LGBTQ music and culture.

Shaboozey Replaces Beyoncé at Number One on Hot Country Songs Chart

Blue ivy carter is lioness kiara in new 'mufasa: the lion king' trailer, here's how to watch 'call me country: beyoncé & nashville's renaissance' doc online.

It wasn’t the always-in-motion marathon fans are sometimes used to from the singer (who’s been performing since she was 15), but it was perhaps her most spectacular. Her singers, dancers, and horn-inflected band all got their moments to shine. Her costumes were immaculate, from disco-inspired gowns to nude leotards with built-in-hands covering her private parts and built-in red nails. “It should cost a billion to look this good,” she sang on “Honey,” and it felt like it actually might have. 

That song segued into a snippet of the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back,” one of many snippets of other artists’ songs that she nodded to throughout the set — from Diana Ross to Lauryn Hill to Kendrick Lamar to her own girl group history in Destiny’s Child. That became even more overt on the Queens remix of “Break My Soul” which shouts-out everyone from Nina Simone to Jill Scott to Grace Jones. It also interpolates Madonna’s “Vogue,” which brought the queer underground ballroom subculture to the mainstream. Beyoncé’s dancers included current ballroom heavyweights Honey Balenciaga and Carlos Basquiat, and they got a chance to shine alongside twerkers and other dance styles towards the end of the show. Subtly or not so subtly, Beyoncé paid reference to the music history that made her, from disco to R&B, soul, Motown, hip-hop and house, then filtered it back through her own lens. Whether or not you saw it coming, it felt big. 

Trump’s Team Has a Plan to Ensure He Doesn’t Go to Jail for Violating Gag Order

Kendrick did everything he needed to on ‘euphoria’, daniel radcliffe responds to j.k. rowling's anti-trans rhetoric: 'it makes me really sad', ted cruz wants airlines to keep your cash when they cancel your flight.

It’s also a world created by the pandemic and inflated ticket prices, with many fans only able to experience big arena shows like this vicariously. (The other current global blockbuster tour, Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, isn’t even coming to Canada, which caused talk in parliament and an embarrassing tweet from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking her to come. But this blockbuster night more than made up for it.) Just as Beyoncé has blended her persona and music, she’s now obscuring the physical parameters of live performance.

Beyoncé Announces Renaissance World Tour 2023 with Stops in 25 U.S. Cities

The "Crazy in Love" singer confirmed the hugely anticipated stadium tour on Instagram Wednesday morning

beyonce tour north america

Beyoncé is back, baby!

The singer, who is up for nine Grammys this Sunday , revealed her Renaissance World Tour 2023 on Wednesday morning in an Instagram post — coincidentally, (or perhaps, very strategically!) six years to the day she announced her surprise pregnancy with twins .

The highly anticipated tour — produced by Parkwood Entertainment and promoted by Live Nation — is set to kick off in Europe on May 10 at Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden before touring overseas in Cardiff, Edinburgh, Sunderland, Paris, London, Marseille, Amsterdam, Warsaw and more.

A North American leg of the tour begins on July 8 in Toronto, Canada before hitting 25 U.S. cities including Philadelphia, Nashville, Louisville, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, East Rutherford, Boston, Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., Charlotte, Atlanta, Tampa, Miami, St. Louis, Phoenix, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Inglewood, Vancouver, Seattle, Kansas City, Dallas, and Houston.

The tour is currently scheduled to wrap on Sept. 27 in New Orleans.

For complete ticket information, visit .

Beyonce's last tour was 2018's On the Run tour which hit 48 cities in North America and Europe. Beyoncé last performed a full concert back in 2018, when she and JAY-Z, 53, appeared at the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 event .

The tour announcement comes just over one week after Queen Bey performed her first full concert in more than four years, when she performed an hour-long set at the new Atlantis The Royal Resort in Dubai.

For more on Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour announcement, listen below to our daily podcast PEOPLE Every Day.

Moving through a decade of iconic hits, Beyoncé, 41, performed staples such as "Crazy in Love," "Beautiful Liar" and "Naughty Girl," as well as more recent tunes including "Freedom," "Spirit" and "Be Alive."

The singer wore a set of dazzling looks during the performance, including a yellow custom-made Atelier Zuhra corseted dress, which was topped with a feathered skirt and matching backpiece, when she opened the show performing a cover of Etta James ' "At Last."

Then, the mother of three changed into another custom gown, an all-red Nicolas Jebran ensemble composed of a skin-tight bodysuit that was decorated with gold jewels across her torso and chest. She accessorized the look with a matching, billowing skirt and an intricate headpiece.

Notably missing from Beyoncé's set was any song from Renaissance .

Renaissance , which has been billed as the first of a three-part project , marks Beyoncé's first solo album in six years.

She previously released Dangerously in Love (2003), B'Day (2006), I Am... Sasha Fierce (2008), 4 (2011), Beyoncé (2013) and Lemonade (2016), following her tenure with Destiny's Child . Beyoncé also appeared on the 2018 collaborative album Everything Is Love with husband JAY-Z , as well as 2019's The Lion King: The Gift , a soundtrack for Disney's live-action adaptation that features original music by the artist.

Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE's free daily newsletter to stay up-to-date on the best of what PEOPLE has to offer, from juicy celebrity news to compelling human interest stories.

Additionally, she released Homecoming: The Live Album in 2019, recorded from her iconic Coachella performance the year before.

A visual album for Renaissance has been previously teased , but no release date for it yet has been announced.

The announcement comes after Beyoncé seemingly confirmed the 2023 ‘Renaissance’ tour via an auction last year .

Last month, Beyoncé performed her first concert in four years at the launch of a luxury hotel in Dubai  although no ‘Renaissance’ material was played.

Reviewing ‘Renaissance’, NME  described the singer’s first studio album in six years as “a celebration of love and Black joy” that is “indebted to house music and New Orleans bounce, keenly reclaiming gentrified genres”.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

The Beyhive is buzzing like never before.

After much speculation, Beyoncé has officially announced her highly anticipated stadium “Renaissance Tour.”

Seven years after her “Formation Tour” and five years after the “On The Run II Tour” with her husband Jay Z, the 28-time Grammy winner (and 88-time nominee!) will embark on her solo headlining “Renaissance Tour” in support of her critically acclaimed chart-topping 2022 album “Renaissance” all summer long.

The international tour will start overseas in Sweden, Belgium, the U.K., France and Germany in May before she returns to North America for 29 huge stadium concerts starting July 8 at Toronto’s Rogers Centre .

Singer Beyoncé strikes a pose onstage.

And although Queen Bey isn’t coming to the Big Apple on the run — as of now — she will get close to the City That Never Sleeps.

On July 29 and July 30 , Mrs. Knowles is set to touch down at East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium for two huge back-to-back concerts.

She’s familiar with the venue too. The last show of her “Formation Tour” was at the Giants and Jets’ home stadium on Oct. 7, 2016. That time around, she brought Jay Z and Kendrick Lamar onstage with her.

Who will she bring this time? Will she sing the same songs she did at her recent Dubai concert?

All we know is the best way to find out is live.

Where will Beyoncé go on tour in North America?

Below, you’ll find a complete list of all upcoming 26 tour dates, venues and links to buy tickets for shows where the pre-sale has already taken place.

Beyoncé opening acts

At the time of publication, Beyoncé does not have any opening acts lined up for her 2023 “Renaissance Tour” although there are rumors that 74-year-old singer Grace Jones will be joining her swirling on Twitter .

We personally can’t get enough of Jones’ seven-minute cover of Roxy Music’s “Love Is the Drug.”

In 2016, Knowles was joined by DJ Khaled on the “Formation Tour.” Two years later, she co-headlined with her husband and fellow 88-time Grammy nominee Jay Z on the “On The Run II Tour.”

Beyoncé Dubai setlist

Although Beyoncé didn’t perform any tracks from her 2022 record “Renaissance” at the Jan. 23 concert in Dubai, she was able to cram in several hits from her expansive catalogue as well as a few covers into her 17-song set.

Here’s her set list (courtesy of  SetList.FM ):

01.)  “At Last”   (Harry Warren cover; made famous by Etta James)

16.)  “Naughty Girl”   (from her 2003 album “Dangerously In Love”)

Beyoncé “Renaissance” album

Knowles’ “Renaissance” was the most critically-acclaimed album of 2022 showing up on countless year-end lists as 2022’s best.

The 16-track album, clocking in at just a little over an hour was also extremely popular with fans as well quickly charting at number on the Billboard 200, making it Beyoncé’s seventh album to hit the top spot.

However, the record that brought the world “Break My Soul” may have more to it.

Beyoncé has hinted that the record is part of a three-part series; in a June 28, 2022 announcement she called it “Act I.”

Since the album’s release, it has undergone a few transformations.

According to Pitchfork, Beyoncé “replaced ableist lyrics in “ Heated ,” and  removed  an interpolation of  Kelis ’ “Milkshake” on “Energy” after Kelis said  she was not informed  by Beyoncé and her team that her music was going to be used on the new album.”

She also reportedly dropped  Honey Dijon  and  Madonna  remixes of “Break My Soul.”

Beyoncé Grammys

Beyonce’s seventh studio album “Renaissance,” netted nine Grammy nominations for Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Dance/Electronic Recording, Best Dance/Electronic Album, Best R&B Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best R&B Song and Best Song Written For Visual Media.

The nine nominations tie Beyonce with her husband Jay Z for most all-time Grammy nominations with 88 apiece.

Grammy-winning artist Beyoncé is back on her first solo tour since 2016. Tickets are still on sale for those who wish to see Beyoncé perform in her celebrated Renaissance World Tour through October 2023. Stick with us, and we'll show you the best options for where to buy Beyoncé tickets today.

The 2023 Renaissance World Tour kicked off with an international leg in Sweden on May 10, 2023. Beyoncé then traveled across ten European countries before arriving in North America on July 8. The tour's United States and Canada leg will continue through October 1 as the musician plays 13 more shows in nine cities.

Supporting her 2022 album "Renaissance," the concert setlists have included Beyoncé playing each track from her seventh studio album. The Renaissance World Tour also includes "Queen Bey" playing various hits from her larger discography, such as "Formation," "Love on Top," and "Crazy in Love."

If you're aiming to buy tickets for the final performances of Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour, we've got you covered. Here's our breakdown of Beyoncé's remaining tour schedule, purchasing details, and resale and original ticket prices. Or you can browse through the available tickets left through StubHub and Vivid Seats at your leisure.

Beyoncé 2023 Renaissance tour schedule

The Renaissance World Tour still has 11 concert dates across eight cities, including three shows in Inglewood, California. In addition to one stop in Vancouver, Canada, the remaining shows will be held in the United States. Tickets are the most expensive in Beyoncé's hometown of Houston, Texas. All concert times are listed in local time zones. We've linked to the ticket site with the cheapest deals (at the time of writing) in the 'Prices from' column.

Where to buy tickets for Beyoncé 2023 Renaissance tour

You can purchase original tickets to Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour through Ticketmaster , although only a select number remain for each 2023 date and location. However, the tickets still available on Ticketmaster are typically more expensive than those found on verified resale platforms such as StubHub and Vivid Seats .

The prices for standard tickets to Beyoncé's concerts from StubHub start at approximately $102 on the lower end to nearly $400, depending on the venue. Vivid Seats offers similar price ranges for standard Renaissance World Tour tickets, ranging from about $100 in Las Vegas to $375 in Houston. When considering VIP packages, the cost increases significantly on each purchasing platform.

How much are Beyoncé tickets?

The prices for original Beyoncé concert tickets have risen considerably since the end of the initial Verified Fan Sale through Ticketmaster. Additionally, the cost of an original ticket varies depending on the demand for a particular location and date.

For instance, the cheapest price on Ticketmaster for a standard original ticket to the 2023 Renaissance World Tour is $91.83 for her Las Vegas, Nevada show on August 27. However, there are very few standard original tickets remaining for Beyoncé's concerts, so you may have better luck with verified resales.

Meanwhile, some original VIP packages, such as the Pure/Honey on Stage Risers, cost well over $3,000. At Beyoncé's August 30 performance in Santa Clara, the original VIP package costs $3,601. On the less expensive side, original Beyhive VIP Package prices are $1,401 in Seattle. Here's a breakdown of the various Beyoncé VIP packages from Ticketmaster's website .

Original prices typically come in much higher than resale prices for Beyoncé concerts. Many of the cheaper tickets are verified resales for nearer tour dates, suggesting you might find the best prices when it gets closer to the concert date.

Who is opening for Beyoncé's tour?

Beyoncé's world tour does not include any opening acts from other artists. Once the showtime begins for each concert date, it will be the Queen Bey herself who comes onstage.

There are no traditional opening acts for the 2023 Renaissance World Tour because Beyoncé is technically the opener to her own concerts. The time typically reserved for other artists at the start of the concert instead sees Beyoncé sing R&B ballads from her early discography, beginning with her Destiny's Child-era 2000 song "Dangerously in Love 2."

Approximately four songs are played in Beyoncé's "Opening Act" before moving into her "Renaissance" tracks. The concert is approximately two and a half hours long with 31 songs on the setlist, so Beyoncé's tour has more than enough hit music to fill the night.

Since Beyoncé opened with the international leg of her ninth solo tour, the music sensation will take her final bow of the concert series on October 1 in Kansas City, Missouri. While the remaining concert dates are primarily in the United States, there will be one last international show in Vancouver, Canada, on September 11, 2023.

Beyoncé Announces Renaissance World Tour. Here Are the California Show Dates

Beyoncé's renaissance tour is taking place in north america and europe from may to september., by maria celeste alfaro • published february 2, 2023 • updated on february 3, 2023 at 9:14 am.

Beyoncé welcomed February with big news.

Queen Bey surprised her fans on Wednesday with an Instagram post announcing her world tour for 2023. 

Beyoncé has not been on tour for a hot minute and fans are excited to see her perform.

The Renaissance Tour will take place in North America and Europe. Her first concert is set to take place at Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on May 10 and her last stop will be at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Queen Bey’s tour is in support of her seventh album, Renaissance, which has been nominated for album of the year. Her song “Break My Soul” has also been nominated for record of the year and song of the year. A full list of her nominations can be found on the Grammys website . 

While fans are excited for Beyoncé’s tour, some have expressed their concerns on TikTok and hope that it will not be a “Deja Vu.” Many have concerns that it will be similar, if not a repeat, of Taylor Swift's "The Eras Tour.”

Last year in November, many "swifties" were not able to purchase tickets during the presale on Ticketmaster because of the website crashing.

Ticketmaster ended up canceling public sale tweeting that because of “extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand” they could no longer sell any more tickets. 

Due to extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand, tomorrow's public on-sale for Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour has been cancelled. — Ticketmaster (@Ticketmaster) November 17, 2022

Once again, Ticketmaster anticipates that there will be a high demand for Renaissance tickets. 

This time Ticketmaster has laid out a new plan in hopes that it will be a much more successful and efficient process for everyone.

As usual, fans who want to purchase presale tickets will need to register for Verified Fan. This helps filter out any bots and potential resellers, giving fans a higher chance of purchasing tickets.   

However, rather than releasing all the presale tickets at once they have come up with three different dates to purchase presale tickets.

There are three registration groups: A, B and C. Each group has a set of different states. To view in which group each state is, be sure to check on their website . 

Fans are allowed to register on all three groups. They have a choice to register through three different registrations: BeyHive Verified Fan Registration, Citi Verified Fan Registration, or Verified Fan Onsale Registration.

All the registrations are currently open, but they do have their own deadline.

Group A is set to close on Friday, February 3 at 12 p.m. Eastern time.

Group B will close on Thursday, February 9 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.

Lastly, Group C will close on Thursday, February 16 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.

Keep in mind these registration dates can change at any time, so it’s best to check for any updates on their website .

When is Beyoncé Set to Perform in California? 

According to her tour website she is set to perform three times in California: 

  • August 30th at Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco, CA.
  • September 2nd at Sofi Stadium in Inglewood, CA.
  • September 3rd at Sofi Stadium in Inglewood, CA.

She's also going to be performing in Las Vegas on August 26th at Allegiant Stadium.

Be sure to sign up for one of the Verified Fan sales in order to have access to presale tickets. For more information check out her tour website . 

For many fans, seeing her perform is a sweet dream that they hope doesn’t break their soul when the presale opens.

All the Celebrities, From Selena Gomez To Kylie Jenner, Spotted at Beyoncé's Renaissance Tour So Far

preview for Megan Thee Stallion's HOTTEST Career Moments | The Hot List | ELLE

On Friday, it seems like the stars decided to align in Paris for Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour stop. The stands were filled with celebrities in the VIP section and Alien Superstar risers, which are a popular choice for an unobstructed view of all the action. It was a good choice, because it was the night that Beyoncé's 11-year-old daughter Blue Ivy joined her on stage for a little singing and some sweet choreo, documented here by the musical icon's mom, Tina Knowles-Lawson.

The tour continues across Europe before heading to North America in July. Here are all the celebrities who have attended her concert series so far.

Lenny Kravitz

A stand out, the director was there for the tour's opening night in Stockholm instead of Paris.

“Just landed in Stockholm, Sweden!” he wrote on his Instagram Stories. “Here to stand with, applaud, and hold up Mrs. Carter for the first night of the ‘Renaissance [World] Tour!’ I’m proud of you, B. Let’s go!”

Chris Rock in the VIP section in Paris.

The rock star was also reportedly in Paris on Friday and shared a clip of herself singing along to “Cuff It” on Instagram Stories.

Billie Eilish Tour Just Announced! Here's How to Score Your 'Hit Me Hard and Soft: The Tour' Tickets

See Billie on stage in the Hit Me Hard and Soft: The Tour this year.

We may earn commission from links on this page, but we only recommend products we back.

Eilish announced via Instagram, “HIT ME HARD AND SOFT: THE TOUR. tickets on sale may 3rd 😋 pre-sale april 30th-may 1st! Various pre-sales details were emailed ( @americanexpress card members will also have early access to a limited supply of tickets when using your Amex card to buy tickets.) c u then ;)."

Eilish's post also featured a photo that listed all of her show's North American tour dates.

Although Eilish only first gained attention for her music in 2015 when she uploaded the song "Ocean Eyes" to SoundCloud, the influential artist quickly became a household name among both young people and their parents alike. She and her brother, Finneas O'Connell, have gone on to write, produce, and perform many other hits, like “Bad Guy,” “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,” “Bury a Friend,” and “All the Good Girls Go to Hell.”

Eilish, known for her distinctive fashion sense opting for oversized and baggy clothing, solidified her star status with her introspective lyrics and remarkable stage presence. She has gone on to win multiple Grammy Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Golden Globe Awards, and even recently, two Oscars for “What Was I Made For?,” the popular ballad from the “Barbie” movie .

This highly anticipated upcoming tour kicks off in late September in Quebec, Canada, but will quickly make its way across North America through late December, with stops in Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, Newark, Boston, and Pittsburgh, just to name a few cities. After the American leg of her tour, Eilish will continue touring in Europe come April 2025.

How to Get Tickets to Billie Eilish’s Hit Me Hard and Soft: The Tour

Tickets for Eilish's tours tend to sell out quickly (like Taylor Swift quickly), so fans should get ready. Mark the date — pre-sale tickets will be up for grabs from April 30 to May 1 on Ticketmaster .

Fans who signed up for pre-sale access should check their emails for details. American Express card members will also receive early access to buy tickets, but you must use your AMEX upon checkout. Those who don’t have pre-sale codes will have to wait until May 3 to try to purchase.

And should they sell out during the pre-sale process, there’s always resale sites like StubHub , Vivid Seats , and SeatGeek . The only snag? Set your expectations. Resale tickets for Eilish will likely cost more than face value.

How Much You'll Spend on Tickets to Hit Me Hard and Soft: The Tour

Currently, if you do a search, you will see some resale tickets already up for grabs on sites like StubHub . At first glance, floor tickets for a New Jersey show are listed at $357 and $500. Upper sections in Madison Square Garden, located in New York City, are going for around $200.

Upper sections in Chicago are going for $170, while lower sections are going for around $600. We're not sure how long those prices will remain, as ticket costs on these resale sites tend to fluctuate based on demand.

What to Expect at Billie Eilish's Concert

Since the tour hasn’t kicked off yet, we’re still at the edge of our seats for what we might see. But if memory serves us right, Eilish’s past live shows have all been visually stunning and complemented her unique sound and style. You’ll probably experience elaborate stage designs, immersive lighting effects, and multimedia elements that enhance her music.

The singer’s performances have often been praised for moments of high energy balanced with emotional depth. She always maintains an intimate connection with her audience through her moving lyrics and stage presence. Simply put, Eilish’s music is magic.

While we anxiously await the setlist, Billboard reports that Eilish’s Hit Me Hard and Soft: The Tour tour will feature various sustainability efforts, such as a collaboration with Support + Feed that aims to inspire fans to eat plant-based meals. A portion of North American ticket sales will also go to support efforts that address the climate crisis and food insecurity.

Concertgoers: Plan to bring an empty, refillable water bottle to the show. Those who forget can also donate money to receive a RockNFill Nalgene bottle to use at the show. Water refill stations will be available at every venue.

Taylor Swift : The Eras Tour AMC Entertainment

After Covid shut down AMC and the rest of the globe’s multiplexes and the actors strike ratcheted down the box office, you could say that the No. 1 exhibitor was taking its fate into its own hands with Taylor Swift: The Era’s Tour . However, it has Scott Swift, Taylor Swift’s father, to thank. He reportedly made the call to AMC CEO Adam Aron to sidestep studios and gain more cash in taking his daughter’s movie from her $1 billion-plus-selling, sold-out concert tour directly to AMC. Why have a studio walk away with a ton of cash and spend tens of millions in marketing when Swift with a then-near-400 million social media followers is the best form of advertisement? She tweeted a few times to promote the movie, and showed up at her boyfriend Travis Kelce’s Kansas City Chiefs games to drum up her $15M Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour concert film as a must-see. The movie also received a SAG-AFTRA waiver, which allowed the pop star to show up at her own Los Angeles world premiere and do publicity. The result: $100M in global advance ticket sales. AMC, to avoid antitrust issues, hired Gotham-based distributor Variance Films to book cinemas across the nation, and Trafalgar to handle the overseas release. Much to the chagrin of the studios, who had their thing to say about Aron’s entry into the distribution business, they all started moving their movies away (i.e., Universal’s The Exorcist reboot, Lionsgate’s Ordinary Angels ) from Eras Tour and its arrival on the calendar October 13. Swift cleverly tailored her marketing to fans, releasing the movie on a date that reps her lucky number, with tickets priced at $13.13 for children and seniors. Initially she wasn’t going to preview the movie, looking to open hard on 10/13. At the last minute, during the week of release, Swift changed her mind and opted for last-minute Thursday previews (they only yielded $2.8M).

GRAMMY-Award winning R&B star Lucky Daye discovered his love of music and natural gift for singing and songwriting early in life in his hometown of New Orleans. Displaced by the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Lucky moved to Atlanta for a brief stint and eventually ventured to Los Angeles to pursue his music dreams. After meeting producer D’Mile and working with him on his debut album Painted , Lucky fully realized his voice and potential. His undeniable talent as a vocalist took shape and landed him at his label home, Keep Cool, in partnership with RCA Records.

In 2022, Lucky Daye received five nominations for the 65 th annual GRAMMY Awards (including Album of the Year 2x for writing credits on Beyoncé ’s RENAISSANCE and Mary J. Blige’s Good Morning Gorgeous ), performed his hit single “Over” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon , and released his sophomore album Candydrip. The album debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart and #10 on the Billboard Current R&B Albums Chart, and upon release received critical acclaim from NPR, Complex, Rolling Stone, and Billboard, who hailed Daye’s latest effort as “immaculate, forward-thinking R&B.” In addition to Candydrip, Lucky has also released a number of collaborations including “Star” with Megan Thee Stallion, “Too Much” with Mark Ronson, “A Mess” with Ella Mai, “CYBAH” with Syd, and more.

Prior to these accolades, Daye won the GRAMMY Award for Best Progressive R&B album for his 2021 EP Table for Two , received nominations for four GRAMMY’s in 2019, including Best R&B Album and Best R&B Song, and released his explosive hit “Roll Some Mo” in late 2018. Lucky has also been nominated for an American Music Award, iHeart Radio Music Award, NAACP Image Award and more. He has notably performed for NPR Tiny Desk three times, as one of the only acts to ever do so.

Anitta Reborn: The Brazilian Superstar on ‘Funk Generation,’ Her First U.S. Tour and the Mysterious Illness that Reset Her Career

Photographs by Victoria Stevens

For most of her life, Anitta didn’t think much about her death.

Despite growing up in the notorious favelas of Rio de Janeiro, the Brazilian multi-hyphenate just knew that her life would be as glamorous as she always imagined: she would sing, dance and act her way to global stardom. Gradually, that vision has been coming to life.

“I never thought that I wasn’t going to get what I wanted,” she says. “Everyone around me has been maybe more realistic, but I just have these visions for how my life will turn out. I don’t tell anyone, because I know how easily outside pressure can influence the results.”

Popular on Variety

Then, Anitta was hit with a mysterious illness that racked her with chronic, full-body pain and fevers that at times rendered her unable to walk. She was tested for cancer and autoimmune diseases but still doesn’t have a solid diagnosis for what she was experiencing. In her search for relief, Anitta took a month off and retreated into the Yoruba faith she’d learned as a child from her father, taking trips to several countries to connect with ancient healing traditions, from kundalini yoga to meditation. A few hours after this interview took place, she flew to Greenland to spend a week alone, visiting shamans and hiking through “spiritual portals” — parts of the earth that are said to be sensitive to energy.

To advance that new approach, Anitta felt she needed a new team. In the aftermath of the underwhelming response to “Versions of Me,” she cleaned house, parting ways with her longtime manager, Brandon Silverstein, and Warner Music, the label she’d been with for her entire professional career.

At the time, she didn’t tell the world that she was on the verge of dropping out of the music industry. But she’s brutally honest about it now, explaining that her efforts to be palatable internationally were neutering the boldfaced individuality that made her a star in the first place.

“I didn’t feel happy,” she says. “I didn’t have the energy anymore. I was looking at the sales numbers too much, reading what the internet and critics had to say. And after having thought so much about what life could look like if I quit, or if I died … my priorities shifted.”

However, she was contractually obligated to deliver at least two more albums to Warner. So Anitta effectively launched a social-media campaign against her label, claiming its executives never believed “Envolver” — a rare RIAA Latin Diamond-certified single — would be successful without the aid of a co-billed artist, and that her team at Warner’s Latina division wasn’t doing enough to promote her music. “If there was a fine to pay, I would have already auctioned off my organs, no matter how expensive it was to get out,” she wrote on X. “But unfortunately, there isn’t.”

Ultimately, there was, in the form of a reported multimillion-dollar settlement with Warner — $6 million, some sources say (representatives for Anitta and Warner declined to comment on the deal) — as well as a reasonably amicable separation from Silverstein, who, shortly after their parting, was seen speaking abusively to someone over speakerphone in a widely circulated video. Anitta and reps for Silverstein declined to comment on the video, but she says carefully, “[Brandon] did what he needed to do, and what I wanted to do at the time, but my focus changed. He was always very respectful and understanding with me.”

Then, just a month after leaving Warner, she announced a new deal — with Universal Music’s Republic label — and shortly after that, a new manager: Miami-born Rebeca León, who’d helped steer Rosalía, J Balvin and Juanes to superstardom.

From there, Anitta quickly released new music — a three-song EP titled “ Funk Generation ,” which was expanded into a full album under the same title that dropped on April 26. But instead of leaning uncomfortably into popular Western styles, she went back to the youthful baile funk sound of the favelas — a vibrantly danceable combination of samba, Miami bass, hip-hop and syncopated African beats.

Experiment, Anitta does: “Funk Generation” has lyrics in Spanish, English and Portuguese over sweltering rhythms of favela funk. She’s the first to acknowledge that it will be a challenge for some of her more pop-leaning fans, not to mention new ones.

“For a long time, the numbers have decided whether I won or failed, and that will push you to do something unoriginal,” she says. “I want to be very clear: That doesn’t mean I don’t love my old songs. With ‘Versions of Me,’ I was trying a little bit of everything to try to solidify myself in the mainstream, but I don’t care what the fuck is gonna happen with this next album. I love the adrenaline of not knowing whether people are going to like it.”

“That is the true definition of fearlessness,” León says, “when you only want to do what you do because you fucking love it.”

When Anitta first reached out, León had recently transitioned out of managing Rosalía to focus on growing her production company, Lionfish Studios. After working as a co-producer on a 2022 remake of “Father of the Bride,” León and Lionfish Studios are developing several female-driven projects said to have heavy music components that showcase the nuances and intricacies of Latin culture.

“I was on my pseudo break, and [Anitta] asked me to essentially assess her career with her,” León recalls. From that meeting, she found the singer’s resilience inspiring and the opportunities for her career virtually limitless. But she, too, found that in the process of chasing that crossover dream, Anitta had not been making the music she wanted to make.

“She’s gotten here. Now she’s fighting to do what she’s always wanted to do: bring [baile] funk, a marginalized genre, to the big stage,” León says.

And although the genre is lyrically hyper-sexualized, Anitta says her take on it is “all about the sound.” “Brazilian funk is very, very sexual and very explicit, but those lyrics don’t reflect what I’m living personally now,” she says.

“It’s more an exploration of my love for the beats, the parties, and how it all makes me feel,” says Anitta. “A lot of the producers on this album are people who came from the ghetto, the slums, the favelas. They live and breathe Brazilian funk — the kind of funk that has crazy lyrics, that nasty shit.”

Where 2022’s “Versions of Me” leaned into American pop production, “Funk Generation” was a crate-digging process for Brazilian producers like Gabriel do Borel and the duo Tropkillaz, who reference contemporary sub-genres of funk, altering its brass sections with sped-up tempos and repetitive electronic patterns. 

Despite her distancing comments, “Funk Generation” is seriously X-rated, both lyrically and musically. On the song “Savage Funk,” Anitta repeats the word “fuck” 58 times, phrasing her vocals so that they sound like a bassline.

Not that any of this is out of character: Anitta’s sexuality has always been a focal point of her public image. She’s often described herself as two people: Larissa de Macedo Machado, the person she grew up as, and Anitta. All superstars struggle with where the self ends and the star begins, but for her, it seems to be about self-preservation. “I can see myself leaving the name ‘Anitta’ behind,” she muses about the persona that embraces her “most animalistic desires,” “but I’ll never just be Larissa. I am very protective of her. It helps people to understand that there is the artist, and then there is the human who just wants to go home and hide.

“I use my sexuality as a freedom message,” Anitta concludes. “It’s not like I’m telling everyone to flash their pussies. But we have a right to express ourselves without feeling ashamed.”

Despite all of the self-empowering words, on May 18, Anitta will embark on a project that, in the past, she didn’t really want to do: her first global tour, a 20-plus-date trek in theaters dubbed the “Baile Funk Experience” in North America, South America and Europe.

“Touring is tiring,” she says, “and I don’t like going for extended periods without seeing my family. But I’m so engaged with this project that I want to do it. And I want to still keep it small; I want to be able to look people in the eyes. It’s not going to be enough for you to just stand there and watch. The person who goes to this concert will feel an urgency to be a part of it.”

As for what comes next, Anitta is pursuing acting gigs following her role in the Netflix drama series “Elite.” She plans to work her way up, as she always has. Of course, the future holds little mystery for her. “I know what’s going to happen next,” she says, cracking a mischievous smile. “I’m going to keep making very surprising turns — you’ll be left like, ‘Who is this person?’”
