Another Ticketmaster war is on the horizon as the BeyHive prepares for combat. After weeks of speculation, Beyoncé has finally confirmed a world tour in support of Renaissance, planned to make dates in stadiums across the world in 2023.
The musician confirmed the news on Wednesday morning. The tour will kick out in Europe in May and make its North American debut at Toronto’s Rogers Centre for two consecutive nights on July 8 and 9. The tour will make stops in Philadelphia, Nashville, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and more.
Saddle up because Beyonce is kicking off Black History Month with a bang. Queen Bey took to Instagram early Wednesday morning (Feb. 1) to announce that her long-awaited Renaissance World Tour 2023 will officially commence up this year.

The 40-show global trek will launch in Stockholm on May 10 and feature a mix of stadium and arena shows across Europe through June 27 before picking up in North America at the Rogers Centre in Toronto on July 8; that leg is currently slated to run through a Sept. 27 gig at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.
Beyoncé Announces Renaissance World Tour
The announcement shot may look familiar to fans, as she dressed the same sparkling attire on the cover of her seventh studio album. Bey also added “Renaissance World Tour” on her Instagram bio, further accenting the announcement.
Last Thursday, Beyonce played a complete concert for the first time in four years at a luxurious 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 garnered them a Grammy two years ago for best music video.

Crowned a glorious win by music lovers, Renaissance stormed to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last year and rattled off two Hot 100 top 10 tracks, including her chart-topper “Break My Soul.” The dance-centric record also received nine Grammy nominations, the most for any nominee for this year’s ceremony.
Bey is hoping to rack up more prize victories, as she now sits at a staggering 28 wins. Nominated for album of the year, song, and record of the year, Bey is facing some stiff competition, notably in the former. The R&B juggernaut will tango against Adele, Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, Bad Bunny, and others for album of the year.
Beyoncé’s first award would come from this category. Sunday night, February 10th, at 8 p.m. EST, Los Angeles will host the 65th Annual Grammy Awards. The Renaissance tour will be Bey’s first string of tour dates since her 2018 On the Run jaunt with husband Jay-Z and her first solo tour in more than six years.
Ticket sales for the Live Nation-promoted tour — produced by Parkwood Entertainment — 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 (click here for details on Verified fan and on-sale dates for European shows.)
There will also be a Citi presale using Verified Fan as well as a Verizon Up presale. Below, you’ll find a link to Beyoncé’s Instagram post about the 2023 Renaissance and the dates for that year’s events.
