The interpreter of Break My Soul will begin its tour on May 10 in Stockholm (Sweden) and will end its series of event concerts on September 27 in New Orleans (USA).
In the meantime, French fans have reason to rejoice. Beyoncé will be in France for two concerts: May 26 at the Stade de France in Paris, then June 11 at the Vélodrome de Marseille. The ticket office for these event concerts opens on Tuesday, February 7, at 10 a.m. There is no doubt that you will have to be punctual (and patient) to hope to win a precious sesame.
If fans’ expectations are so high, it’s because Beyoncé hasn’t been on tour since 2018 and On the Runwith her husband Jay-Z, who had taken her to North America and Europe, with two exceptional concerts at the Stade de France (remember, the World Cup final…) and in Nice.
Recently, Beyoncé had rather talked about her for a controversial concert organized in a luxury hotel in Dubai. A show that had aroused the anger of the LGBTQI + community, traditionally supported by Queen B, because of the draconian laws of the emirate. “An album specially dedicated to his gay uncle to end up performing in Dubai in one of the most LGBTphobic countries in the world where homosexuality remains theoretically punishable by death”, reacted Sébastien Tüller, LBGTI + manager for Amnesty International. France.

I’ve never seen anything like it,” the star rejoiced on Twitter.
Renaissance therefore has 16 unreleased tracks, dance music atmosphere, carried by the single already released Break My Soul.
