After a series of pre-sale events, the time has finally arrived for Beyoncé fans to take a crack at getting their hands on tickets for her upcoming 2023 Renaissance tour as general sale opens up to the public on Ticketmaster.
The news of the tour comes after it was discovered that the singer had performed her first headline event at the launch of Atlantis the Royal, a new luxury hotel in Dubai. Beyoncé’s last tour was the mammoth Formation World Tour in 2016, which was announced after her guest appearance at the Super Bowl 50 half-time show.
Following the recent 2023 Grammy Awards on Sunday (5 Feb), Beyoncé has become the most decorated Grammy artist of all time, collecting her 32nd trophy at this year’s ceremony. The 41-year-old pop superstar made history as she won the best dance/electronic music album award for her house music-sampling album Renaissance.
