Beyoncé announces her first world tour in seven years as she takes Renaissance on the road

Beyoncé announces her first world tour in seven years as she takes Renaissance on the road

She'll perform 47 shows from May to September as she tours Europe, the UK and North America.

Beyoncé is finally going back on the road as she announces a world tour for her latest album.

Fans have been dying to see the legendary singer ever since she concluded her Formation tour, which was the last time she held a bout of solo shows.

In that time, she's released a couple of singles, performed her legendary Coachella set, dropped EVERYTHING IS LOVE, a collaboration album with Jay-Z, The Lion King: The Gift, Homecoming: The Live Album, as well as her 2022 record Renaissance.

We've finally been given the news we've all been waiting for as Queen Bey will kickstart her tour in Sweden in May.

She'll make her way through Europe and the UK before hopping across the Atlantic to perform a boatload of shows in North America.

Her last show in the US will be in New Orleans on September 27.

In total, there will be 47 shows in this leg of the tour and she hasn't yet confirmed whether she will head to other parts of the world like South America, South-East Asia, Africa Australia or New Zealand.

Beyoncé recently performed in Dubai to celebrate the opening of a new hotel and hoo boy did she get a pretty penny from it.

The 41-year-old singer appeared at an exclusive event at The Atlantis Royal hotel, where she did her first live gig in four years to a curated crowd of influencers and journalists.

Queen Bey pumped out 18 songs in an 85-minute set and even though phones weren't allowed at the concert, there were enough videos that made their way to social media that set the internet on fire.

According to reports, she took home a whopping $24 million for the gig.

That translates to around $280,000 per minute.

It's not hard to see why she agreed to the show, but Beyoncé's fans weren't too pleased about her decision.

Her latest album Renaissance, which was nominated for Album of the Year, has been described as a 'love letter to Black queer pioneers of dance music from the past and present'.

However, she didn't perform any of its songs at the concert.

Many have highlighted the fact that the United Arab Emirates criminalises same-sex relationships for both men and women.

Fans were disappointed she sang some of her old tunes rather than busting out some of the big tracks from Renaissance.

Well, those who were annoyed can wait a few months before getting to see her live.
