The Renaissance era is upon us, and Queen B is in full command. Yes, you read that right! Beyoncé announced her upcoming 2023 Renaissance world tour on Instagram, and all fan speculations about it being a summer tour were correct. The tour is scheduled to begin in the middle of May in Europe and conclude at the end of September in the U.S. However, dates are constantly being updated and added as we speak! With Ticketmaster facing a Senate hearing over the Taylor Swift Eras tour debacle, all I can hope for is that the situation does not repeat itself with Beyoncé, as I desperately need those tickets.
Renaissance, which music draws inspiration from the ’90s vocal house sound and disco-club-inspired pop tracks, is perfect for the long and bright summer season. While I’m sure you’re already looking for the perfect summer wardrobe to complete the concert look, let’s talk about what we know so far about the world tour and presale that has already been circulating on the internet.
When do tickets for Beyoncé’s tour go on sale?
According to Ticketmaster’s official Twitter, the Verified Fan Registration period is now open and will end on Feb. 2 at 11:59 p.m. E.T. for certain regions. You must sign in or create a Ticketmaster account and register your email address. Ticketmaster will then use a lottery-style process to determine which registered Verified Fans will be given a unique access code and added to the waitlist. If you are chosen, you will be given a unique code for the ticket sale. On Feb. 6, the presale for tickets will begin, starting with the BeyHive Presale.
How to join the presale for the Renaissance World Tour
Registration is divided into three groups. Registration Groups A, B, and C are available depending on the city you’re planning to attend. To find which registration group you belong to, you can find more information through the Live Nation website.
Registration for Group A will close on Feb. 2 at 11:59 p.m. E.T, Registration Group B is open until Feb. 9 at 11:59 p.m. E.T, and Registration Group C is open until Feb. 16 at 11:59 p.m. E.T. BeyHive members can sign up for the BeyHive Presale via Verified Fans for the presale on Feb. 6, while Citi Cardmembers can sign up for the Citi Presale via Verified Fans on these various dates:
Registration Group A: Presale begins on Feb. 7 at 10 a.m. local time and ends on Feb. 8 at 6 p.m. local time.
Registration Group B; Presale begins on Feb. 14 at 10:00 a.m. local time and ends on Feb. 15 at 6:00 p.m.
Registration Group C: Presale begins on Feb. 21 at 10:00 a.m. local time and ends on Feb. 22 at 6:00 p.m.
According to sleuths on Reddit, it looks like you can no longer sign up for the BeyHive on Beyoncé’s website, meaning the page might’ve been shut down in anticipation of the tour announcement. But you can still become a Citi Cardmember, if you aren’t already a BeyHive member, so you’re not totally out of luck.

The tour is set to begin on May 10 in Stockholm, Sweden, and will continue in the UK until her North American leg begins on July 7 in Toronto, Canada.
