Thousands are expected to flock to see the former Destiny's Child icon, as she performs a total of five shows in the capital. Her UK tour has sold out - and fans can expect a mammoth setlist of more than 30 songs. She is also due to return for both midweek and weekend shows.

Here is the latest travel news:

Are there road closures for the concert?

Some roads closest to the stadium close on the event days for safety purposes. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has confirmed these closures will also be in place for Beyoncé’s shows at the venue. 

According to the venue, driving is not advised. "A large Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) is in operation and the roads surrounding the stadium are generally closed before, during and immediately after an event." However, they have recommended using public transport, as there are four stations near the event.

A number of side roads around the stadium are closed to general traffic access, from 4.30pm until one hour after the end of the event.
