The BeyHive is in a frenzy as Beyoncé announced on Instagram her long-awaited Renaissance global tour for 2023, beginning in Stockholm on May 10.

Beyoncé is kicking off Black History Month with great and exciting news, so get ready to empty your digital wallets. The Queen announced the start of her eagerly anticipated Renaissance World Tour 2023 on Instagram early in the morning of February 1st. After weeks of media speculation, she has officially confirmed a world tour in support of Renaissance, with stops at stadiums all over the globe planned for 2023.

The tour will kick off in Europe in May and make its North American debut at Toronto’s Rogers Centre for two consecutive nights on July 8 and 9. Philadelphia, Nashville, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New Orleans are just some of the cities that will be visited on the tour.

The Renaissance Tour is Beyoncé’s first extensive run since her 2018 On the Run Tour with her legendary husband, Jay-Z, which visited 48 cities across North America and Europe. The preceding year saw the release of the Netflix concert film Homecoming, which documented the singer’s game-changing performance at Coachella, as noted by Rolling Stone.

DETOUR previously noted that Beyoncé gave her first headlining concert in four years at the unveiling of the new luxury hotel Atlantis the Royal in Dubai. Even though the exclusively invited attendees were asked not to film the private show, nearly the entire thing was shared in varying degrees of quality on social media within hours. Given Queen Bey’s notoriety, it was inevitable that her concert would go viral. Part of the 19-song setlist was a duet with her eldest daughter Blue Ivy on “Brown Skin Girl,” a song and video for which the pair won a Grammy two years ago.

Fans may recognize her glitzy ensemble from the cover of her seventh album, which was utilized for the announcement photo. Bey also highlighted the news by adding “Renaissance World Tour” to her Instagram bio.

Renaissance, who reached a peak at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with two Top 10 hits on the Hot 100, including the number one single “Break My Soul,” was hailed as a glorious victory by music fans, according to Billboard. The album, which includes a significant amount of dance music, received nine Grammy nods, the most of any album released this year.

Bey is up against some strong competition for album of the year, as well as song and record of the year nominations. In the race for album of the year, the queen of the BeyHive will face off against the likes of Adele, Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, Bad Bunny, and more. Beyoncé’s first award would come from this category. On February 5th at 8 p.m. Pacific Time, Los Angeles will host the 65th annual Grammy Awards.
