BEYHIVE, it’s time! Beyoncé just released the dates for her Renaissance World Tour. And it’s not lost on us that she made the epic announcement on the first day of Black History Month. Details inside…
What a way to kick off Black History Month 2023!
Beyoncé just announced a global tour to promote her dance-heavy Renaissance album, which was released in July.
The 47-date world tour kicks off in Europe in May, followed by dates in Canada and the United States from early July to late September.
The “Alien Superstar” announced the news in a simple Instagram post this morning, with a photo of herself in her Renaissance album look and the words “Renaissance World Tour,” which she repeated in the caption, adding “2023.”
It’s Bey’s first tour since co-headlining the On the Run II Tour with Jay-Z in support of their collaborative album, Everything Is Love, in 2018, and her first headlining tour since the Formation World Tour in support of Lemonade in 2016.
Per usual, Parkwood Entertainment will produce the Renaissance World Tour, which is promoted by Live Nation.
The Citi Verified Fan Presale is one way to get tickets. Buyers must first register for the pre-sale in order to attempt to secure a ticket. Some registrants will then receive an access code the night before the presale, allowing them to shop for tickets. They will then be able to purchase tickets using a valid Citi credit card or Citibank debit card.
How Does Verified Fan Work?
• Register for Beyoncé’s RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR powered by Verified Fan. Registering does NOT guarantee you will be verified, receive a code, or have the ability to purchase tickets.
• If invited to the sale, you’ll receive an access code the night before the Citi presale inviting you to shop for tickets.
• Find and purchase tickets with a valid Citi credit card or Citibank Debit Card.
Registration for the Citi presale powered by Verified Fan in Chicago, East Rutherford, Washington DC, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Houston will go through Thursday, February 2 at 11:59 PM EST. Verified fans will be notified and the Citi presale will begin Tuesday, February 7, 2023 at 10 AM EST through Wednesday, February 8, 2023 at 6 PM EST.

Otherwise, links to register for specific tour dates can be found on Beyoncé’s website. Beyoncé uses a similar Verified Fan system, which involves registering to receive a code and all that, but without the need for a Citi card.
Ticketmaster also has a Verified Fan pre-sale. Fans can register now HERE. Sign in or create a Ticketmaster account to register now. Let’s hope Ticketmaster doesn’t screw the ticket sales up following their botched ticket rollout for Taylor Swift’s Eras tour.

The rent is due, and Beyoncé has fans second-guessing whether they should pay it now and keep those funds for the ticket sale drop. If that’s not an option, your tax refund could get you in the building.
BEYHIVE, you ready?!
