While we might be stuck waiting for those mythical Renaissance videos forever, fans will soon be able to see Beyoncé in the flesh: the Queen has announced a world tour, seven long years on from her Formation dates to support the release of Lemonade.
This will mark the first time Beyoncé has performed music from Act I: Renaissance live. Although she recently headlined a concert extravaganza in Dubai – wearing three incredible performance looks for the occasion – she did not play songs from the album on the night.
Starting in Stockholm on 10 May, the singer will make her way through European arenas, then stop in the UK for six shows, including three nights at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. In July, she will head to North America, beginning in Toronto and ending in New Orleans in the autumn. Be on alert, as the superstar has yet to announce when tickets will go on sale, only teasing that it would be “soon”.
In the more immediate future, Beyoncé is up for nine awards for Renaissance at the Grammys this Sunday – including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year. The night could see her become the most awarded artist in the ceremony’s history. Who could deserve it more?
