Beyoncé 2023 Renaissance tour schedule
The Renaissance World Tour still has 11 concert dates across eight cities, including three shows in Inglewood, California. In addition to one stop in Vancouver, Canada, the remaining shows will be held in the United States. Tickets are the most expensive in Beyoncé's hometown of Houston, Texas. All concert times are listed in local time zones. We've linked to the ticket site with the cheapest deals (at the time of writing) in the 'Prices from' column.
Where to buy tickets for Beyoncé 2023 Renaissance tour
You can purchase original tickets to Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour through Ticketmaster , although only a select number remain for each 2023 date and location. However, the tickets still available on Ticketmaster are typically more expensive than those found on verified resale platforms such as StubHub and Vivid Seats .
The prices for standard tickets to Beyoncé's concerts from StubHub start at approximately $102 on the lower end to nearly $400, depending on the venue. Vivid Seats offers similar price ranges for standard Renaissance World Tour tickets, ranging from about $100 in Las Vegas to $375 in Houston. When considering VIP packages, the cost increases significantly on each purchasing platform.
How much are Beyoncé tickets?
The prices for original Beyoncé concert tickets have risen considerably since the end of the initial Verified Fan Sale through Ticketmaster. Additionally, the cost of an original ticket varies depending on the demand for a particular location and date.
For instance, the cheapest price on Ticketmaster for a standard original ticket to the 2023 Renaissance World Tour is $91.83 for her Las Vegas, Nevada show on August 27. However, there are very few standard original tickets remaining for Beyoncé's concerts, so you may have better luck with verified resales.
Meanwhile, some original VIP packages, such as the Pure/Honey on Stage Risers, cost well over $3,000. At Beyoncé's August 30 performance in Santa Clara, the original VIP package costs $3,601. On the less expensive side, original Beyhive VIP Package prices are $1,401 in Seattle. Here's a breakdown of the various Beyoncé VIP packages from Ticketmaster's website .
Original prices typically come in much higher than resale prices for Beyoncé concerts. Many of the cheaper tickets are verified resales for nearer tour dates, suggesting you might find the best prices when it gets closer to the concert date.
Who is opening for Beyoncé's tour?
Beyoncé's world tour does not include any opening acts from other artists. Once the showtime begins for each concert date, it will be the Queen Bey herself who comes onstage.
There are no traditional opening acts for the 2023 Renaissance World Tour because Beyoncé is technically the opener to her own concerts. The time typically reserved for other artists at the start of the concert instead sees Beyoncé sing R&B ballads from her early discography, beginning with her Destiny's Child-era 2000 song "Dangerously in Love 2."
Approximately four songs are played in Beyoncé's "Opening Act" before moving into her "Renaissance" tracks. The concert is approximately two and a half hours long with 31 songs on the setlist, so Beyoncé's tour has more than enough hit music to fill the night.
Since Beyoncé opened with the international leg of her ninth solo tour, the music sensation will take her final bow of the concert series on October 1 in Kansas City, Missouri. While the remaining concert dates are primarily in the United States, there will be one last international show in Vancouver, Canada, on September 11, 2023.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.
The Beyhive is buzzing like never before.
After much speculation, Beyoncé has officially announced her highly anticipated stadium “Renaissance Tour.”
Seven years after her “Formation Tour” and five years after the “On The Run II Tour” with her husband Jay Z, the 28-time Grammy winner (and 88-time nominee!) will embark on her solo headlining “Renaissance Tour” in support of her critically acclaimed chart-topping 2022 album “Renaissance” all summer long.
The international tour will start overseas in Sweden, Belgium, the U.K., France and Germany in May before she returns to North America for 29 huge stadium concerts starting July 8 at Toronto’s Rogers Centre .
And although Queen Bey isn’t coming to the Big Apple on the run — as of now — she will get close to the City That Never Sleeps.
On July 29 and July 30 , Mrs. Knowles is set to touch down at East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium for two huge back-to-back concerts.
She’s familiar with the venue too. The last show of her “Formation Tour” was at the Giants and Jets’ home stadium on Oct. 7, 2016. That time around, she brought Jay Z and Kendrick Lamar onstage with her.
Who will she bring this time? Will she sing the same songs she did at her recent Dubai concert?
All we know is the best way to find out is live.

Beyoncé 2023 tour schedule
Where will Beyoncé go on tour in North America?
Below, you’ll find a complete list of all upcoming 26 tour dates, venues and links to buy tickets for shows where the pre-sale has already taken place.
Beyoncé opening acts
At the time of publication, Beyoncé does not have any opening acts lined up for her 2023 “Renaissance Tour” although there are rumors that 74-year-old singer Grace Jones will be joining her swirling on Twitter .
We personally can’t get enough of Jones’ seven-minute cover of Roxy Music’s “Love Is the Drug.”
In 2016, Knowles was joined by DJ Khaled on the “Formation Tour.” Two years later, she co-headlined with her husband and fellow 88-time Grammy nominee Jay Z on the “On The Run II Tour.”

Here’s her set list (courtesy of SetList.FM ):
01.) “At Last” (Harry Warren cover; made famous by Etta James)

08.) “Otherside” (from the 2019 “Lion King: The Gift”)
09.) “Bigger” from the 2019 “Lion King: The Gift”)

16.) “Naughty Girl” (from her 2003 album “Dangerously In Love”)
17.) “Drunk In Love” (from her 2014 album “Beyonce”)
Beyoncé “Renaissance” album
Knowles’ “Renaissance” was the most critically-acclaimed album of 2022 showing up on countless year-end lists as 2022’s best.
The 16-track album, clocking in at just a little over an hour was also extremely popular with fans as well quickly charting at number on the Billboard 200, making it Beyoncé’s seventh album to hit the top spot.
However, the record that brought the world “Break My Soul” may have more to it.
Beyoncé has hinted that the record is part of a three-part series; in a June 28, 2022 announcement she called it “Act I.”
Since the album’s release, it has undergone a few transformations.
According to Pitchfork, Beyoncé “replaced ableist lyrics in “ Heated ,” and removed an interpolation of Kelis ’ “Milkshake” on “Energy” after Kelis said she was not informed by Beyoncé and her team that her music was going to be used on the new album.”
She also reportedly dropped Honey Dijon and Madonna remixes of “Break My Soul.”
Beyonce’s seventh studio album “Renaissance,” netted nine Grammy nominations for Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Dance/Electronic Recording, Best Dance/Electronic Album, Best R&B Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best R&B Song and Best Song Written For Visual Media.
The nine nominations tie Beyonce with her husband Jay Z for most all-time Grammy nominations with 88 apiece.
Huge concert tours in 2023
While a Beyoncé tour announcement may trump all others in terms of hype, there quite a few exciting tours to look out for in the next few months.
Here are just five of our favorite, can’t miss concerts that may be coming to a city near you soon.

Beyoncé returned to the stage for first time in four years in January
Last month, Beyoncé made her return to the stage and performed at the opening of the Atlantis The Royal hotel in Dubai. Despite the luxury experience, the singer left fans wanting more, as she did not perform any songs from "Renaissance," The Hollywood Reporter reported.
The invitation-only event marked her first concert in more than four years. She last performed at the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 event in 2018.
Beyoncé dominates Grammy nominations
The singer's tour announcement comes days ahead of the Grammys where Beyoncé leads the 2023 lineup with nine nominations, including best dance/electronic album ("Renaissance"), best R&B performance ("Virgo’s Groove") and best traditional R&B performance ("Plastic Off the Sofa").
With 28 wins and 88 total career nominations, Beyoncé now ties her husband, rapper Jay-Z , for the most nominations in Grammy history. If Beyoncé picks up four or more awards this year, she will surpass the late Georg Solti for the most Grammy wins of all time. (The Hungarian-born conductor holds the record with 31.)

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have got "to be the most intense power couple in the history of music," Recording Academy president Harvey Mason Jr. Mason said after the nominations were revealed. "That’s music and Grammy royalty – that’s the royal family."
Their combined 176 nominations are "absolutely a testament to their talent, to their level of excellence, to their work ethic, to their level of greatness over a long period of time. I don’t even know what the next (leading) couple would be, but it’s not anywhere close.”
Beyoncé's 'Break My Soul.' Taylor Swift's 'Anti-Hero.' These are the 10 best songs of 2022, ranked.
Beyoncé noticeably was not nominated in any of the music video categories for the Grammys, having not released any album visuals for "Renaissance" since its debut.

Beyoncé Renaissance Tour: Details on Ticket Prices, Presale Info, Location, and More
Posted: February 1, 2023 | Last updated: November 11, 2023
Queen Bey kicked off the month of February with a huge announcement — the Renaissance Tour is happening! On Feb. 1, 2023, Beyoncé shared via Instagram a photo of the Renaissance album cover, leaving little to the imagination, and this caption: RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR 2023.”

- Beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Feb. 2 and ending at 6:00 p.m. on Feb 3., 02 Priority customers will be given the opportunity to buy tickets via the 02 Priority app up to 48 hours before the general release.

Tickets for Beyoncé's Renaissance tour will be available for the public to purchase beginning Feb. 7 at 10:00 a.m. In order to purchase tickets to Beyoncé's upcoming concert, you’ll need to be registered with Verified Fan .

You can register for Verified Fan now (it’s free), though this doesn't guarantee you’ll get a ticket. Registration will only be open for a limited time so keep reading to find out the available windows to sign up.
How much are tickets for the Beyoncé Renaissance world tour?
Ticket prices for the Beyoncé Renaissance tour haven't been disclosed yet, though they will be once the first presale event starts. In the past, Beyoncé concert tickets ranged from $98 to $167, according to SeatGeek , though pit seat tickets extend well into the hundreds.
For those of you who intend on “fighting” for your chance to get Renaissance tickets, keep in mind that fans are limited to buying a maximum of four tickets per person, per household. The limits apply separately to the presale and general sale.
Now, because the demand for Renaissance tickets is high, not everyone will succeed in buying a ticket. Using a lottery-style process, fans will either receive a unique access code (that can't be traded or sold) or be added to a waitlist.
When will the Renaissance tour begin and where will Beyoncé perform?
The Renaissance world tour will kick off on May 10, 2023, in Stockholm, Sweden, at the Friends Arena. During the month of May, Beyoncé will visit Belgium and Great Britain . Between June 8 and July 8, Beyonce will perform in Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Deutschland, Poland, and Canada .

The announcement photo may look familiar to fans, as she donned the same glittery attire on the cover of her seventh studio album. Bey also added “Renaissance World Tour” on her Instagram bio, further accenting the news. Last week, Beyonce performed a full concert for the first time in four years at a luxury resort in Dubai in front of influencers and journalists. The 19-song set included a collaboration with her oldest daughter Blue Ivy as the two performed “Brown Skin Girl,” which earned them a Grammy two years ago for best music video.
Crowned a triumphant win by music lovers, Renaissance stormed to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last year and rattled off two Hot 100 top 10 hits, including her chart-topper “Break My Soul.” The dance-centric album also notched nine Grammy nominations, the most for any nominee for this year’s ceremony. Bey is looking to rack up more trophy wins, as she currently sits at a staggering 28 wins. Nominated for album of the year, song, and record of the year, Bey is facing some stout competition , especially in the former. The R&B juggernaut will tango against Adele, Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, Bad Bunny, and more for album of the year. A win in this category would serve as Beyonce’s first. The 65th Grammy Awards will occur Sunday night in Los Angeles at 8 pm EST.

Beyonce Renaissance Tickets Prices Are Reaching $4,000+ Per Ticket
Ticketmaster’s ‘new approach’ to ticket sales hasn’t resulted in lower prices. Ticket prices for the Beyonce Renaissance tour have reached $,4000+.
Ticketmaster announced the new approach of dividing cities into three groups with staggered registration deadlines and presale dates. The goal was to minimize the impact of bots—but the results have been disastrous for actual fans.
VIP packages started at $3,700 for a single ticket, with a $550 service charge from Ticketmaster tacked on. But even the most ‘affordable’ seats are seeing sky-high service fees on their less than reasonable ticket prices. A ticket price of $162 generated a service fee of $43.90. These tacked on fees are one item of discussion among regulators for creating more transparent ticket sales for fans.
Ticketmaster has already admitted that demand for Beyonce has outpaced even Taylor Swift. 2.4 million fans bought ‘Eras’ tickets within their first few hours of availability, exceeding demand by 243%. Meanwhile, the demand for Renaissance tickets has exceeded 800% by Ticketmaster’s own estimates .
Ticketmaster’s dynamic pricing approach is at the heart of the issue. The more demand there is for the tickets, the higher the price will rise.
That means even higher ticket prices on the secondary market. Why didn’t Beyonce use another service? Ticketmaster is owned by Live Nation , who owns the stadium venues in which Beyonce wants to draw her massive crowds. It’s a catch-22 that Live Nation promised wouldn’t happen when it merged with Ticketmaster in 2010.
“Because the number of Verified Fans will exceed the number of available tickets, there will be disappointed people,” adds David Herlihy, a Professor at Northeastern and coordinator of its Music Industry program. Herlihy spoke to Forbes about how he thinks the Ticketmaster sale of Beyonce tickets will go. “Ticketmaster could help itself by being more transparent. That means telling fans how many tickets are available at each venue before they go on sale. Ideally, there would be a perfect match between supply and demand with no price gouging—but that is a fairy tale.”

How Much Are Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance Tour’ Tickets?
It’s hard to believe, but it’s only been two days since Beyoncé officially announced the dates for her global Renaissance Tour this year.
The shows, in support of her 2021 album, will kick off in Stockholm, Sweden in May. She will then continue around Europe before making her way back to North America in the summer.
However, given Ticketmaster making serious headlines after Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour debacle and A-List pop stars commonly being associated with skyrocketed pricing on the tickets, members of the Beyhive are likely wondering how much attending will set them back.
According to National World (and Twitter users), Beyoncé’s ticket prices for the London show are reportedly the following (USD equivalent) and expected to be in a similar range. However, dynamic pricing on Ticketmaster and other fees could increase it depending on implementation.
Seated – £56.25 to £199 ($68.31 – $241.67) Standing – £106.80 ($129.70) Gold Circle – £177.50 ($215.56) GA Early Entry Package – £221 ($268.38) Silver VIP Fan Ticket Package – £256 ($310.89) Premium GA Early Entry Package – £321 ($389.82) Gold VIP Fan Ticket Package – £341 ($414.11) Club Renaissance Experience – £372 ($451.76) BeyHive VIP Package – £769 ($933.88) Alien Superstar Riser – £1038 ($1260.55) Pure/Honey On Stage Risers Front Row Experience – £2400 ($2914.56)

Beyoncé —whose full name is Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter—debuted with the girl group Destiny’s Child in 1996 along with fellow members Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett. The band—whose final line-up consisted of Beyoncé, Rowland and Michelle Williams—went on to sell more than 60 million records worldwide and become of the most successful artists of the 2000s for hits like “Survivor,” “Independent Women,” “Bootylicious,” “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Say My Name.”
Beyoncé made her solo debut in 2003 with her first single “Crazy in Love” featuring her now-husband, Jay-Z. The song, which was featured on Beyoncé’s debut album Dangerously in Love , reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and led to other hits like “Check on It,” “Deja Vu” and “Me, Myself and I.” Since Dangerously in Love , Beyoncé has released six more albums: 2006’s B’Day , 2008’s I Am… Sasha Fierce , 2011’s 4 , 2013’s Beyoncé , 2016’s Lemonade and 2022’s Renaissance.

Most of Beyoncé Renaissance World Tour set list includes songs from Beyoncé’s seventh studio album, Renaissance . The album—also titled Act I: Renaissance —is the first act of a trilogy project Beyoncé started during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving,” Beyoncé explained in an Instagram post on June 30, 2022. “My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”
Renaissance features 16 songs including lead single “Break My Soul,” which peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as tracks like “Energy,” “Virgo’s Groove” and “Summer Renaissance.” Beyoncé confirmed her seventh studio album was in the works in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in April 2021, where she explained that the LP was inspired by her feelings throughout the pandemic. “With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again. I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible,” she said at the time. “I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies. Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!”
In a post on her website in July 2022, Beyoncé dedicated her album to her husband, Jay-Z; three kids, Rumi, Sir and Blue; and her uncle Johnny, her late first cousin, as well as other members of her family. “I want to give a special thank you to Rumi, Sir, and Blue for allowing me the space, creativity, and inspiration. And a special thanks to my beautiful husband and muse, who held me down during those late nights in the studio. A big thank you to my Uncle Johnny,” she wrote. “He was my godmother and the first person to expose me to a lot of the music and culture that serve as inspiration for this album. Thank you to all of the pioneers who originate culture, to all of the fallen angels whose contributions have gone unrecognized for far too long. This is a celebration for you. Thank you to my Parkwood crew, my slab, Dream, and all of the talented producers involved. Mama, I luhhhh you. To my father, my O.G., my first teacher: You inspire me in every move that I make. I love you.” See Beyoncé’s full Renaissance track list below.

It’s also assumed that Beyoncé Renaissance World Tour set list will include songs from her 2023 concert at Atlantis The Royal Resort in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on January 21, 2023, which included both new and old hits from the singer. See Beyoncé’s full Dubai set list below.
- “At Last”

In a past interview with Marie Claire , Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles, opened up about her daughter’s perfectionism when it comes to live performances. Tina, “She stays up late reviewing tapes, studying them to make it better. It’s hard for me — it’s one of the reasons I go on tour. I’m always the person to make her go to bed. I’m still her mother, so I can walk up and close the computer and tell her to go to bed,” she said.
Tina recalled a time when Beyoncé was 15 years old and she took her and the other members of Destiny’s Child to see Janet Jackson live in concert. “The others were like, ‘That was great,'” Tina remembered “But Beyoncé was already pulling it apart, trying to figure out what made it good. She said, ‘One day I want to have a concert like that.'”
Beyoncé also told Marie Claire about the meaning behind her 2008 hit single “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” “I just try to write songs that people are going to have a dialogue about. Songs that people are going to feel . . . at dinner, at the club. I want people to have some type of emotion,” Beyoncé said before explaining the meaning behind “Single Ladies.” “More than anything, the song celebrates being single. It’s like, if you’ve been doing all you can and it’s not happening for you, go out and have you a good old time. Put on your sexy dress and move on.”
Beyoncé also told Marie Claire about her on-stage alter ego Sasha Fierce and the personality is reflected in her music. “I know I’m stronger in the songs than I really am,” she said. “Sometimes I need to hear it myself. We all need to hear those empowering songs to remind us.”
She also told the magazine about how she and her husband, Jay-Z, keep their relationship strong despite their busy careers. “We try to sync our calendars,” Beyoncé said. “I started working on my tour a year ago just to make sure that I had time at home. But you know, that’s part of it. Any other woman who has to go to work and pick up the kids and make dinner—that’s way harder than what I have to do. At least I can say I’m taking two weeks off and really take two weeks off.” As for how she predicted her life would change after her past tour at the time, Beyoncé told Marie Claire, “My priorities are slowly changing. So after this tour I might be tired and want to take two years off. I’ve worked hard enough to be able to do that. I’m in a very good place.”

Hmm I wonder if the woman who keeps banging on about Brown Skin and being an African Queen will actually go to the African continent with her tour because she never has before, which I always thought was funny considering how much she reveres it. Overrated anyway.

Beyoncé Fans Are the Latest to Be Fleeced by Huge Ticket Fees
By Ethan Millman
As Beyoncé fans anxiously waited online looking to secure tickets to Queen Bey’s upcoming Renaissance tour, the high price of ticket fees is once again a groan-inducing discussion among ticket-buyers as they have no choice but to swallow the hefty added costs if they want to see her show.
Some customers who bought VIP packages for the tour — already among the priciest and highest-quality experiences at the venue — saw service fees as high as $550 (about a 15% service fee) atop the $3,757 the customer already spent on their seat. The most expensive tickets, of course, will also catch the most eye-popping fees. Among the more affordable seats, one customer’s screenshot detailed a $43.90 service fee on a $162 ticket (about a 27 percent fee), plus another $8 for the facility charge.
Ticketing fees aren’t a uniquely Ticketmaster issue, and the fees for some tickets listed on resale platforms like StubHub and VividSeats have come close to 30 percent. But Ticketmaster and its parent company Live Nation Entertainment have faced increased scrutiny from federal regulators over allegations that the company functions as a live music monopoly.
Ticketmaster has repeatedly refuted allegations that it squashes competition. Regarding the fees in particular, Live Nation Entertainment president and CFO Joe Berchtold told regulators during a Senate judiciary hearing on the live music business last month that venues typically set the fees, and that Ticketmaster’s portion of service fees has fallen.

“Fans, artists, competitors, and policymakers sounding the alarm about the Live Nation-Ticketmaster monopoly’s abuses — including charging inexplicable, sky high fees — has warranted attention from the Biden administration,” the coalition said in a statement. “It’s time legislators and regulators bring transparency and accountability to the live events ticketing industry by curbing the use of these junk fees once and for all, and breaking up this monopoly to bring more competition to the live events industry.”

Beyoncé tour sales are off to a smoother start. What does that mean for Ticketmaster?

An illustration of the Ticketmaster website from 2022. The ticketing giant has come under renewed scrutiny from music fans and lawmakers in recent months.
All eyes are on Ticketmaster as the first tickets for the North American leg of Beyoncé's Renaissance tour go on sale. And the ticketing giant appears to be feeling the heat — and making some changes — after its widely panned Taylor Swift presale in November.
Ticketmaster announced last week that it would be dividing cities into three groups, each with its own staggered registration deadlines and presale dates, in addition to using its Verified Fan system to try to minimize bots. (It ended up closing registration for the last two groups on Sunday, citing outsize demand.)
There was much buzz within and beyond the BeyHive ahead of the first round of presale on Monday. Fans flooded Twitter with prayers and memes, while the Senate Judiciary Committee — which held a hearing into competition in the ticketing industry last month — tweeted a warning : "We're watching."
Beyoncé's Renaissance tour is Ticketmaster's next big test. Fans are already stressed
Ticketmaster itself sought to temper fans' expectations , explaining in advance how the ticketing process would work and warning that many would likely end up empty-handed because demand exceeded the number of available tickets by more than 800% for Group A cities alone.
"It is expected that many interested fans may not be able to get tickets because demand drastically exceeds supply," it cautioned on Friday.
And the company kept communication going as the first round of tickets for Group A — with cities including Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Toronto and Washington, D.C. — went on sale on Monday.
It tweeted out schedule reminders , status updates and waitlist announcements throughout the afternoon, periodically reassuring fans that "queues remain secure." It also responded to some users' questions ("Verified Fan does not measure how big a fan you are") and retweeted several triumphant posts of fans who had managed to snag tickets.
Ticketmaster faces a big test: Beyoncé's Renaissance tour
Ticketmaster also published a blog post detailing steps it is taking in the "arms race against abusive ticket scalping." Among them, it said, it had "already built new defenses that are working against past tactics" and would have engineers "standing by in real time to monitor attempted attacks and build new defenses if needed."
Monday's sales appeared to go relatively smoothly, or at least without reports of any major crashes. Still, it remains to be seen how the sales planned for the rest of the month will turn out, or whether these changes are enough to appease critics who accuse Ticketmaster of acting as a monopoly and want to see it broken up.
Carolyn Sloane, a labor economist at the University of California, Riverside — whose "Rockonomics" class is currently studying the Ticketmaster drama — says while Ticketmaster's approach to the Renaissance tour is a step in the right direction, these changes alone won't solve the problems we're seeing.
The Senate's Ticketmaster hearing featured plenty of Taylor Swift puns and protesters
Sloane tells NPR that external pressures like political oversight and the threat of enforcement are mirroring the kind of pressure that Ticketmaster (which controls more than 70% of the market for ticketing and live events) would face in a more competitive landscape, and that's forcing it to invest more in things like communication with customers.
But she says it's not realistic to think that there will be much change in the market without some sort of structural remedy (in the form of something like forced divestment or an updated consent decree from the U.S. Justice Department).
"Absent enforcement activity, you're probably just going to see some kind of status quo with how the ticketing market looks right now," Sloane says — adding that in a perfect world there would be less consolidation in all parts of the music industry, including streaming.

Lucky fans say tickets were worth the stress
The opening day of ticket sales seemed to go more smoothly for Renaissance than Swift's The Eras Tour, though it wasn't without complaints.
Some Twitter users accused Ticketmaster of using dynamic pricing (though the company tweeted that prices hadn't fluctuated during the sale and were instead showing up as ranges for available tickets), and there were reports of fans having issues getting companion tickets for accessibility purposes.
Still, there didn't appear to be tech issues or traffic peaks big enough to force Ticketmaster to pause or postpone sales, as was the case in November.
Fans who were able to get tickets on Monday told NPR that the experience was stressful but not as harrowing as they had feared.
Dozens of Taylor Swift fans sue Ticketmaster in the wake of its ticket sale fiasco
Jared Moses, a 28-year-old based in Memphis, prepared by reading Ticketmaster's instructions and tips from Beyoncé fan pages on social media.
He wasn't actually too worried before his presale opened, because he saw posts from lots of people who had been waitlisted and figured he was one of a relatively manageable number of people with access — plus he hoped that Ticketmaster had learned from its past mistakes.
"A lot of the Beyoncé fans ... were joking, like, 'Yeah let's just let the Swifties figure this out, so it'll be better by the time Beyoncé tickets come out,' " he said, referring to the Eras tour debacle.
Beyoncé sets a new Grammy record, while Harry Styles wins album of the year
James Barringer, a college senior, said he set the mood by listening to what he described Beyoncé's most iconic live performances, like those at the Super Bowl and the Video Music Awards. He entered the virtual waiting room at 2 p.m. around number 1,600 in line, and was able to get his tickets (for a New York show in July) by 2:20 p.m.
"So it only took 20 minutes, which was pretty amazing," he said. "But I had logged on quite early and was just sort of waiting around all afternoon, anxious to get tickets."
Barringer was cognizant of the pressure on Ticketmaster to deliver, calling Monday a big day both for Beyoncé fans and the company. And he hopes "the good times keep rolling for Ticketmaster," for everyone's sake.
Taylor Swift says her team was assured ticket demands would be met for her Eras tour
"The BeyHive will rip the site down, like the BeyHive will get Congress to finally take action if action needs to be taken," he added.
Destinie Brooks, who is based in Chicago, says she's been researching social media threads by people who have managed to get high-demand concert tickets in the past, but she's also keeping her expectations low ahead of her presale date this weekend.
That said, she acknowledges that presale is a lottery — with no regard for how much Beyoncé merch or music she's bought in the past — and there's only so much she can do.
"So at this point I'm just remembering the tips, I'm mentally preparing to be in a certain headspace on Saturday like an hour before the tickets drop, and it's just nothing but prayers," she said. "Just prayers."

The case for why non-Bey fans should care
Sloane, the economics professor, says it's worth looking at the music industry through an economic lens even though it's relatively small in terms of its revenue and political influence. She cites two main reasons:
"One, kind of for the emotional presence that it has in our lives, it makes sense to explore it," she says. "But beyond that, a lot of what we see happening in the music industry does reflect what is happening in the economy writ large and also kind of leads the trends of what we're seeing in the greater economy."
Understanding the state of antitrust enforcement in the United States
Sloane says Ticketmaster has done good things for the industry, like creating the modern infrastructure for computerized ticketing and being the connector between fans and venues. But, like many, she says it lacks competitive incentives that would push it to improve things like technology and communications.
Now — after botched sales, public pushback, reputational challenges and the threat of antitrust enforcement — she sees Ticketmaster taking action in real time, whether that's through staggering its presales or sending an executive to testify in front of Congress. Still, she says that's no substitute for competitive pressure.
"In the absence of that competitive pressure, you know, we might see some other unsavory activity in the future or not kind of fully efficient activity in the future," she says. "And so that's always going to kind of be a question. But this is not just hanging over Ticketmaster. And it's not just hanging over the live event space of the music industry. It's over every part of the music industry."

Ticket scalpers: the real ticket masters.
Sloane says every part of the music industry is "extremely consolidated," with the exception of music publishing, and she thinks that will continue to be an issue regardless of what happens with Ticketmaster.
Plus there's only so much Ticketmaster can do to meet the outrageous demand for certain concerts, which she says can be explained in part by years of demand pent up during the pandemic and the fact that younger consumers are increasingly experience-driven.
But even if getting tickets for big-name performances continues to be high stakes and high stress, Sloane says there's reason for hope.
"People should get out there and see shows that are not just stadium shows," she says. "There's a lot of great theater shows and local venue shows that you can get tickets for and have that experience of going to a great show and maybe discovering some new music. So in that sense, there's always going to be stuff to go to. It might just be more expensive to go to the top 1% of performer shows."

How much will you pay for Beyoncé's Louisville show? Resale prices in other cities are high
Prices to attend live shows featuring some of the biggest names in music have skyrocketed in recent years, and the cost of the first wave of tickets for Beyoncé's "Renaissance" tour have been no exception.
Presale prices for her highly anticipated Louisville show, set for mid-July at the newly-named L&N Federal Credit Union Stadium, have not been released yet. But based on tickets on the resale market, don't expect them to come cheap – the cost of tickets for shows in other cities that are being offered on SeatGeek, an online service that offers tickets being resold after their initial purchase , could give us a clue at what you may pay.

How much are Beyoncé resale tickets outside Louisville?
Some tickets are available on the resale market at three-digit prices. Others, though, break the bank.
The most expensive resale tickets for Queen Bey's July 8 show in Toronto, for example, were sitting at just over $11,000 as of Tuesday morning, according to seatgeek.com . Some other tickets are set around $2,000 and about $7,000. Tickets on the other end of the price range had crept toward $400 at the lowest.
It's a similar story in Chicago: the number of tickets priced in the thousands was up to double digits, with one seat nearing $12,000. One ticket in Chicago was listed at $5,379 and tagged as a ticket with a "moderate price." A "VIP package" with unlisted seats was about $5,000 for each ticket. The $400 tickets were a "good deal" according to seatgeek.com.
Tickets for her show in Las Vegas started at over $400 and were listed as high as $13,000 ($12,948 to be exact).

The surge in ticket prices is due in large part to an algorithm called "dynamic pricing," which analyzes real-time market supply and demand. Plane tickets and ride-sharing apps like Uber operate on a similar system. Dynamic pricing caused some Bruce Springsteen tickets to go for $4,000 last year , and it's a key reason why some Taylor Swift tickets never hit the public market on her last tour.
How much would you pay?
Fans have mixed opinions about getting tickets for Queen Bey's concerts, though, whether they're on the presale or secondary market. One Twitter user, @jasdoit, said that the process looked like "a nightmare," but they're happy for folks who did get a chance at seats.
That sentiment was echoed by @tiinaadee, who expressed confusion about rising ticket prices in their tweet, "I dont understand how ticket prices for Beyonce keep going up.... original tickets.. not resale..."
Some users, like @thedividenddog, joked that Americans would rather spend the money to see Beyoncé than make their car payments.
For those fans who were lucky enough to get tickets, though, there was no shortage of excitement (or Beyoncé memes).

Beyoncé's "Renaissance" tour will have at least 41 stops across North America and Europe. She will play at the L&N Federal Credit Union Stadium in Louisville on July 17.

Ticketmaster's registration period for presale tickets ended for Louisville on Feb. 5, but presale tickets are supposed to go live the following dates .

- Citi Verified Fan Presale : Feb. 21 at 10 a.m. to Feb. 22 at 6 p.m.

I paid $2,300 for 2 floor seats at Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour but I was still disappointed by my view
- I am a founding member of the Beyhive. In fact, I've never missed a Beyoncé concert tour or residency.
- Bey's Renaissance World Tour was utterly amazing; a silver-speckled, immersive homage to ballroom culture.
- Still, my floor seats at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey were disappointing and had low visibility.
Beyoncé is the greatest live performer alive — and she proved as much when she kicked off her Renaissance World Tour earlier this summer.
The 56-date tour, which began in May overseas in Stockholm, Sweden , is an immersive homage to ballroom culture. Based on Bey's seventh solo album, 2022's "Renaissance," the mother of the house herself brought her club music-enthused tracks to life with a giant-sized silver bedazzled horse, duck walking, a variety of thigh-high boots, and a couple of robotic arms.
I wrestled through Ticketmaster's complicated Verified Fan sales, annnnnd the Beyhive presale, only to walk away waitlisted for both.
So when my friend suggested I try a random presale code she saw on Twitter, I was delighted to find that it not only worked but there were plenty of "good" seats left at the July tour date I wanted: MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Feeling pressured by Ticketmaster's countdown clock, I purchased two tickets for around $1,150 each.
Even though I literally bumped into Blue Ivy and Jay Z while leaving the stadium (OMG; I'm still pinching myself!), here's why I regret my floor seats and will likely consider sitting in a different section for her next concert tour — if she blesses us again.
Floor seats do come with perks, but it doesn't guarantee visibility
When we arrived at MetLife around 7:30 p.m., it was exciting to check in and get our orange wristbands. Those bands allowed us access to the stadium floor and its facilities.
Once secured, we walked our way out into the stadium and found our spot — Section 3, Row 16.
It felt very close to the main stage and the now-iconic circular-shaped runway, designed by entertainment architects Stufish and stage designer Es Devlin, who's also worked with Adele, U2, and The Weeknd.
Being on the floor also meant seeing many of the VIPs who came out to support Beyoncé while on this tour stop. There's been social-media footage of celebrities from Madonna and Megan Thee Stallion to Oscar-nominated actor Taraji P. Henson and "Game of Thrones" actor Emilia Clarke at Bey's tour.
During Beyoncé's second night in New Jersey, my husband and I saw Oprah Winfrey, Gayle King, and even rapper Fat Joe.
And as I humble-bragged before, while making our way to our cars during Bey's last song of the night, "Summer Renaissance," security forcefully stopped us before we ran right into Blue Ivy , accompanied a few paces back by her billionaire dad, Jay Z . Talk about a highlight of my life!
Still, as an entertainment reporter for more than 15 years, celebrity sightings weren't enough to make up for my low visibility during the actual concert.
The circular stage's risers prevented me from seeing the best parts of the show off-screen
As a live concert enthusiast — I've probably been to more than 500 shows in my lifetime — I prefer to sit on the floor so I can see an artist in their element with my own two eyes.
While I appreciate how jumbo screens allow me to see extra details that just aren't possible with the naked eye in a stadium, my preference is always to try and see the experience for myself.
When Beyoncé opened her set with three of her iconic ballads, "Dangerously In Love," "Flaws and All" (which I was surprised to see her sing without getting emotional. True fans know she always tears up just a little bit while singing that one), and "1+1," she utilized the main stage.
While Bey was on the larger stage, I had high visibility, able to go expertly back and forth between the screens and my own eyes with ease. And although some fans were sitting on what's called the "Pure/Honey On Stage Risers," or literal risers onstage, they were off to the side enough so they didn't block our view.
I also really loved that Bey took a page from her Coachella set and used risers to be even higher onstage, making visibility great while she sang her Platinum-hit single, "Cuff It," one of my favorite performances of the night.

But as the show progressed, my naked-eye visibility worsened due to how the circular runway was built. On either side of it, there's a raised portion of the platform, five steps higher than the rest of the runway.
This allowed Bey, and her dancers, to walk up and down, but it also blocked my view when Bey was on the interior runway that cuts into the circle, which was a lot during the later part of the concert.
I didn't even see Blue Ivy come out onstage and instead relied on the jumbo screens to see our niece do her ones and twos.
We also thought Beyoncé would come around to our part of the circle more, but even when she did, she turned inward toward the Club Renaissance pit section, so it was a bit of a letdown.
Despite visibility issues, I still had a life-changing, inspiring time during the Renaissance World Tour. One of the reasons why I've never missed a solo concert tour or residency is that seeing Beyoncé perform the music that inspires all of us, reminds me to tap into my greatest potential as an artist.
She reminds me that as a creative, as a woman, as a mother of multiples, as a wife, I can do anything — and do it gloriously.
If Beyoncé decides to go on tour again, I'll be right there, ticket in hand. I just may pay for a seat in the 100 section instead of on the floor.
