Beyhive, this is not a drill: Beyoncé is coming to a city near you. After weeks of unconfirmed speculation, the “Alien Superstar” singer finally announced she’s touring her latest album, Renaissance. This news comes over a week after Beyoncé shook the internet (and had singers clamoring to ace those new “Drunk In Love” outro runs) with her first live performance in Dubai on Jan. 21.

On Feb. 1, Beyoncé shared the dates for the upcoming world tour on her website, which sees her beginning in Europe in May before trekking through Canada and the U.S. from early July through late September. The new roster of shows is her first tour since her 2017 On The Run II tour with her husband, JAY-Z. Before that joint excursion, she performed solo at her 2016 Formation World Tour.

In Beyoncé fashion, she stopped the world with the sudden release of her tour announcement on Instagram, but how is the universe supposed to carry on?

Interestingly, fans asked a similar question to Ticketmaster on how they’ll handle traffic once tickets go on sale. IYDK, the ticket site is still embroiled in Taylor Swift’s Eras tour disaster. With that said, seeing Beyoncé on tour is a rare occasion and that adds a Hunger Games-tinged level of competition in trying to purchase tickets.

That looming dedication has already reared its head, as fans noted Beyoncé’s website seemingly crashed while trying to register for tickets this morning. Similar to Swift, the singer offered a verified fan registration, which sees that those who registered for a specific city will get first dibs on tickets when they go on sale on Feb. 6. The registration will run until Feb. 2.

Beyoncé first hinted at her Renaissance tour during the fifth annual Wearable Art Gala in October 2022. The event held several biddings, including a $20,000 “UNIQUE experience” package that included two tickets to see Beyoncé on tour amongst other luxe prizes. Even though fans were anxiously awaiting for her to release the dates, the drop still came as a shock. And honestly, it posed another question that’s hilariously taken on a life of its own: Beyoncé, where are the visuals for Act I?

New visuals or not, the Beyhive will still line up to see Beyoncé in concert. Here are the details about the singer’s upcoming, disco-fueled tour.

When do tickets for the Renaissance world tour go on sale?

After the verified fan registration ends on Feb. 2, tickets will go on sale Feb. 6.

What will Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour setlist look like?

Beyoncé has yet to release what the tour’s setlist will be; however, it’s safe to assume she’ll perform a bulk of her Renaissance album. The entire album — which is a rivetingly indulgent nod to house music and Black queer voices prominent in that space — hoards enough bops that she could perform the entire album.

The singer could also sprinkle in hits from her previous albums (especially ones she rarely performs), similar to her recent Dubai concert. I could see Beyoncé slickly cooing “Kitty Kat” to introduce the naughtier tracks on Renaissance like “Alien Superstar” or “Virgo’s Groove.”

Who are the openers for Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour?

No openers have been confirmed for the Renaissance tour.

Where can I buy tickets for the Renaissance tour?

Fans can purchase tickets for Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour through Ticketmaster.

As fans wait for the general ticket sale, it’s definitely time to brush up on your Renaissance knowledge and give the album another listen— if it hasn’t been on a constant loop already.
