There are several presale ticket options for Beyoncé fans. Verified fan registration for North American dates are available on beyonce.livenation.com  and Ticketmaster . Citi cardmembers will have access to a presale via citientertainment.com . Verizon Up members can buy presale tickets at  verizon.com/featured/verizon-up .

Visit the various websites for more on presale tickets as times vary by city.

You can also find "Register" buttons next to each date on her tour website .

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 Announces Renaissance World Tour. Here Are the California Show Dates

Beyoncé's renaissance tour is taking place in north america and europe from may to september., by maria celeste alfaro • published february 2, 2023 • updated on february 3, 2023 at 9:14 am.

Beyoncé welcomed February with big news.

Queen Bey surprised her fans on Wednesday with an Instagram post announcing her world tour for 2023. 

Beyoncé has not been on tour for a hot minute and fans are excited to see her perform.

The Renaissance Tour will take place in North America and Europe. Her first concert is set to take place at Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on May 10 and her last stop will be at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Get Southern California news, weather forecasts and entertainment stories to your inbox. Sign up for NBC LA newsletters.

Queen Bey’s tour is in support of her seventh album, Renaissance, which has been nominated for album of the year. Her song “Break My Soul” has also been nominated for record of the year and song of the year. A full list of her nominations can be found on the Grammys website . 

While fans are excited for Beyoncé’s tour, some have expressed their concerns on TikTok and hope that it will not be a “Deja Vu.” Many have concerns that it will be similar, if not a repeat, of Taylor Swift's "The Eras Tour.”

Last year in November, many "swifties" were not able to purchase tickets during the presale on Ticketmaster because of the website crashing.

Get Los Angeles's latest local news on crime, entertainment, weather, schools, COVID, cost of living and more. Here's your go-to source for today's LA news.

Ticketmaster ended up canceling public sale tweeting that because of “extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand” they could no longer sell any more tickets. 

Due to extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand, tomorrow's public on-sale for Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour has been cancelled. — Ticketmaster (@Ticketmaster) November 17, 2022

Once again, Ticketmaster anticipates that there will be a high demand for Renaissance tickets. 

This time Ticketmaster has laid out a new plan in hopes that it will be a much more successful and efficient process for everyone.

As usual, fans who want to purchase presale tickets will need to register for Verified Fan. This helps filter out any bots and potential resellers, giving fans a higher chance of purchasing tickets.   

However, rather than releasing all the presale tickets at once they have come up with three different dates to purchase presale tickets.

There are three registration groups: A, B and C. Each group has a set of different states. To view in which group each state is, be sure to check on their website . 

Fans are allowed to register on all three groups. They have a choice to register through three different registrations: BeyHive Verified Fan Registration, Citi Verified Fan Registration, or Verified Fan Onsale Registration.

All the registrations are currently open, but they do have their own deadline.

Group A is set to close on Friday, February 3 at 12 p.m. Eastern time.

Group B will close on Thursday, February 9 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.

Lastly, Group C will close on Thursday, February 16 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.

Keep in mind these registration dates can change at any time, so it’s best to check for any updates on their website .

When is Beyoncé Set to Perform in California? 

According to her tour website she is set to perform three times in California: 

  • August 30th at Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco, CA.
  • September 2nd at Sofi Stadium in Inglewood, CA.
  • September 3rd at Sofi Stadium in Inglewood, CA.

She's also going to be performing in Las Vegas on August 26th at Allegiant Stadium.

Be sure to sign up for one of the Verified Fan sales in order to have access to presale tickets. For more information check out her tour website . 

For many fans, seeing her perform is a sweet dream that they hope doesn’t break their soul when the presale opens.

Beyoncé's 'Renaissance Tour' is bringing out Hollywood's hottest stars. Here’s who was at the LA concerts

Beyoncé brought her "Renaissance World Tour" to Los Angeles for three nights and plenty of celebrities flocked to SoFi Stadium to see the superstar live.

The “Crazy In Love” singer had concert-goers donning head-to-toe chrome ensembles per the performer’s request on her official website , which asked fans to wear their “most fabulous silver fashions” from Aug. 23 through Sept. 22 as her birthday wish and to mark Virgo season.

Among the array of celebrities in attendance was Pedro Pascal, who was spotted having a great time in Club Renaissance and caught on camera clapping along to the music by Sarah Paulson in an Instagram video.

For night two, Issa Rae, who was also in the audience the night before, returned with her crew and uploaded videos of her belting along to Beyoncé's biggest hits from the Club Renaissance section.

Night three on Sept. 4 brought out Diana Ross, who sang happy birthday to Beyoncé, and Tabitha Brown, who danced the night away in videos uploaded online.

The former lead singer for “The Supremes" lead the crowd of 60,000 in singing “Happy Birthday” to Beyoncé, a video posted to X shows.

“Thank you so much,” the “Renaissance” singer beamed. “You are amazing. This is the legendary Diana Ross.”

The crowd roared.

Where can you get tickets?

Tickets for the North American leg of the tour will be available through Ticketmaster's Verified Fan program. Tickets will go on sale Monday, Feb 6, with an exclusive presale to BeyHive members, according to a Live Nation press release.

Verified Fan registration is now open. Once you register, you'll be placed in a lottery system that determines which fans get invited to purchase tickets. Registration alone doesn't guarantee tickets. If you're selected, you'll get an access code the day before tickets go on sale. Everyone else will be placed on a waitlist. According to Live Nation, this process is intended to help Ticketmaster weed out the resellers and verify your account so that actual fans get priority to buy tickets.

Citi cardmembers will have a special Citi Presale after the Verified Fan process. Get more details here . Verizon will also offer an exclusive presale through their customer loyalty program Verizon Up .

Will Beyoncé be using Ticketmaster like Taylor Swift to sell tickets?

Yes, but given what happened with Taylor Swift's Eras tour (and the fact it led to Congressional hearings about Ticketmaster ’s practices), it seems very likely both Beyoncé and Ticketmaster would want to avoid repeating that mess. That most likely explains the usage of the Verified Fan system.

Where will Beyoncé be playing?

The Renaissance World Tour will hit 40 cities in North America and across Europe. Stops include Paris, London, Amsterdam, Toronto, Chicago, East Rutherford, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Houston, and many more.

What has Beyoncé said about the Renaissance World Tour?

She just announced it was happening with a post on February 1. Her website didn't immediately contain any more details. But during the Wearable Art Gala in October 2022, she appeared to confirm it would start this summer, as a backstage tour with her mother Tina Lawson was up for auction at the event.

Will Beyoncé be performing at the Grammys (on February 5) and sharing more tour details there?

Not clear yet, but she is the most nominated artist at the ceremony . On January 21, Variety reported that “ talks with show producers are ongoing for a possible onstage appearance ” by Beyoncé.

What can we expect from the tour on stage?

Beyoncé hasn't shared that yet either, but given the artistry she put into her recent Dubai show , it's fair to say we can expect no less than excellence, elaborate costumes, and an incredible experience.

This post will be updated the moment more detail is released.

Renaissance World Tour 2023 North America Dates

Wondering if Beyoncé is playing a show in your area? Below are the remaining cities the Grammy winner will visit for the 2023 North American leg of the Renaissance tour . Beyoncé previously also added an additional three shows to the tour, including Atlanta (8/14/23), Las Vegas, (8/27/23), and Inglewood, CA (9/4/23).

Not surprisingly, Ticketmaster said it saw a massive demand for the Renaissance tour in a blog on its website. “Fan demand already exceeds the number of tickets available by more than 800% based on the registration numbers in the Group A cities. It is expected that many interested fans may not be able to get tickets because demand drastically exceeds supply.”

While we won’t give too much away about the Renaissance tour set list (though you’ve likely seen much of it on TikTok), you can hear more about the show in Rolling Stone Music Now ‘s podcast episode . It’s a deep-dive into what fans can expect during the concert. In short, you can likely plan to hear everything from deep cuts like opener “Dangerously in Love,” along with Renaissance tracks like “Alien Superstar,” “Cuff It,” and closer “Summer Renaissance.” Plus: “Love on Top,” “Crazy in Love,” “1+1,” and more.

When Are Beyoncé Renaissance World Tour Tickets On Sale?

According to Ticketmaster at the time, “Beyoncé is distributing tickets in three different Verified Fan sales: BeyHive Presale powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan; Citi Presale powered by Verified Fan and the General Verified Fan Onsale. Additionally, there will be a Verizon Up Presale. Registration windows vary by city, so check the schedule below and be sure to note when the window closes for the show you’re interested in attending.”

In other words, if you tried to register for Verified Fan presale, you needed to see which group your city was a part of ahead of time. Group A registration was open until Feb. 2, with Group B registration previously scheduled until Feb. 9, and Group C until Feb. 16.

European dates started in May, and Beyoncé embarked on the North American leg of the Renaissance tour over the summer, including stops in Toronto (read our Renaissance tour review ), Los Angeles, Houston, and New Orleans. Though Beyoncé headlined a show in Dubai — her first concert in four years at the time — she didn’t play any songs from Renaissance , Rolling Stone ‘s No. 1 album of 2022 (“the musical highlight of the year”) and a frontrunner at the 65th Grammys .

When Beyoncé dropped Renaissance last summer, Rolling Stone ‘s Mankaprr Conteh wrote that “Beyoncé flung open the doors to a nightclub of her own making, a place where anyone can be the hottest person in the galaxy … the album traverses eras of dance music to conjure the superhuman confidence and deeply human connection of a night out. The thematic triumph of the auteur’s seventh album is this union of the extraordinary and the earthly across it, a duality that lives on the dancefloors Renaissance was inspired by — and in all of us.”

How to Get Beyoncé Tickets With BeyHive Verified Fan Registration

BeyHive Verified Fan Presale started Feb. 6 for those who registered in Group A, followed by Groups B and C.

The first round of the BeyHive presale arrived just one day after Beyoncé made Grammys history on Feb. 5. With 32 wins under her belt, Beyoncé broke the record for the most Grammy Awards in music history, winning the Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album for Renaissance .

“I’d like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three children who are at home watching,” Queen Bey said during her acceptance speech. “I’d like to thank the queer community, for your love, and for inventing this genre. God bless you. Thank you so much to the Grammys.”

While Renaissance didn’t win a trophy for Album of the Year , Beyoncé still took home a slew of other awards, including Best R&B Song for “Cuff It,” Best Dance/Electronic Record for “Break My Soul,” and Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa.”

“You changed my life,” Lizzo told Beyoncé during her Grammys acceptance speech for her Record of the Year win. “You sang that gospel medley, and the way you made me feel, I was like, ‘I want to make people feel this way with my music.’ So thank you so much. You clearly are the artist of our lives.”

The stars aligned in celebration of Beyoncé !

Numerous celebrities came out to support the singer, 42, during the Los Angeles premiere of her new concert film, Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé , on Saturday evening.

Kelly Rowland , Lori Harvey and Gabrielle Union were among some of the big names showcasing major looks on the silver carpet at the event.

Rowland, 42, sparkled at the premiere in a silver sequined cone bra dress from Jean Paul Gaultier's Fall 2023 Couture collection. She sported a curly asymmetric bob and accessorized her look with silver embellished bracelets and rings, as she wore silver peep-toe pumps to match. 

Amy Sussman/WireImage

Harvey, 26, rocked an edgy look in a vintage Mugler black vinyl mini dress with spiked edges and matching sleeves. The SKN founder added a pair of black strappy sandals to her look and wore her hair in a sleek updo, with a pair of large crystal earrings.

Union, 51, meanwhile, opted for sleek elegance in a black plunging dress with a faux fur skirt by Cong Tri, which she paired with a pair of black heeled sandals. The Perfect Find actress wore her hair in a chic updo with a sweeping fringe as she sported a silver embellished choker and bracelet.

Other names in attendance at the premiere were Janelle Monáe , Lizzo , Vanessa Bryant , Winnie Harlow , Tia Mowry , Tyler Perry , Lupita Nyong’o , Chlöe and Halle Bailey , Victoria Monét , Kris Jenner , Issa Rae , Laverne Cox , Coco Jones and Niecey Nash-Betts .

Beyoncé's parents, Tina and Matthew Knowles , were also in attendance to support their daughter's latest project.

Monáe, 37, stood out in a quirky black and white polka dot dress with a matching cap and gloves by Annakiki . She paired the look with black and white heeled boots as she sported her signature red lipstick. 

Nyong’o, 40, also made a striking appearance in a silver sequinned blazer dress as she wore black lipstick. 

Harlow, 29, meanwhile, opted for a demure look in a black velvet bustier with billowing sleeves and matching leggings as she showed off her new cropped hairdo. 

It was Destiny's Child reunion at the premiere as well, as former members Michelle Williams , LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett also made an appearance to support their former girl group member.

Roberson and Luckett, both 42, matched with Williams in black gowns as they accessorized with silver jewelry for the event. 

Beyoncé stole the show, however, as she unveiled ice-blonde hair on the red carpet at the premiere.

The "Cuff It" singer wore a silver chainmail custom gown by Versace and matching silver opera gloves with silver-heeled sandals.

The star-studded premiere for Beyoncé's upcoming concert film comes days ahead of another that will take place in London on Nov. 30.

Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé will premiere in theaters on Dec. 1.

Beyoncé Comes To LA: A Definitive Guide To Navigating Her Concert At SoFi Stadium

Beyoncé performs on stage in a silver outfit on a silver prop horse during the "Renaissance" tour. She is surrounded by dancers and part of the crowd is visible.

Getting there

Food and drink.

I t’s Virgo season and the Queen has spoken.

Beyoncé had clear instructions for fans headed to Inglewood’s SoFi stadium this weekend. The Grammy winner wants to see the Beyhive decked out in their “most fabulous silver fashions” in celebration of her Sept. 4 birthday.

"We’ll surround ourselves in a shimmering human disco ball each night," she wrote in an Instagram story. "Everybody mirroring each other’s joy. Virgo season together in the House of Chrome."

And while you decide whether to bedazzle like Reneigh — what fans call the mirrorball horse from the Renaissance album cover that Beyoncé brought to life during the tour — or don a tinsel hat complete with a floor-length cape like Bey did during a Las Vegas show, we have you covered on other concert essentials.

Citing a lack of resources and this event’s stage configuration, L.A. Metro said in a statement they will not offer the same shuttle service they did when Taylor Swift took over SoFi for twice as many dates.

“We’re using the knowledge we gained from the Taylor Swift pilot service to develop a plan to help us secure the resources we need to serve more major events at SoFi Stadium and other local venues while ensuring we can run our everyday service,” Metro said.

The agency added that the resources they need to offer the special shuttle service include access to a parking lot to stage buses, extra security and traffic control, as well as additional people power.

“The availability of these resources is determined by crowd size — and because of a different stage setup, SoFi stadium will not accommodate as many fans as it did for the Swift shows,” Metro said.

Instead, they're directing riders to Rally , where they can find rideshare options from Metro stations to the stadium once they've taken the Metro to the Hawthorne/Lennox Station off the C Line or the Downtown Inglewood station on the K Line.

Also, keep in mind that Beyoncé usually comes on at 8 p.m., so give yourself plenty of time to navigate public transit, especially if it's your first time. Take advantage of Metro’s Trip Planner — given the run times, you might have to leave the concert early.

If you choose to drive to the stadium, buy a parking pass for stadium parking beforehand. Attendants will turn you away to offsite lots if you don’t have one.

Swifties recommended the ParkWhiz app on TikTok: It lists all the lots in the area including those onsite, how much they cost, whether they are manned and how far they are from the stadium.

If you’re getting dropped off, Kareem Court has been designated for pick-ups and drop-offs.

Also, take note: SoFi has a strict bag policy. Either carry an up to 4-by 6-inch clutch, or bring a clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bag that should not be bigger than 12-by-6-by-12 inches. The stadium also encourages fans to have tickets saved on their mobile wallet app ahead of time.

Outside food and drink — except a factory-sealed, 20 ounces-or-less bottle of water — is not allowed inside SoFi. Bring credit or debit cards as vendors in the stadium do not accept cash.

Another pro tip? In-n-Out, Chipotle and Wendy’s are all a short walk from the stadium’s parking lot. Once you’ve secured a coveted spot, close to the stadium and the exit, walk to one of the restaurants in the area and fuel up before the concert.

When Beyoncé sings “Everybody on mute” during “Energy,” make sure you stay silent. That means no singing along, no clapping, no cheering, not a hum. Imagine around 70,000 people staying silent at a concert.

With no videos for the Renaissance album, the concert is set to be a visual treat for fans, so be prepared for around three hours of elaborate, futuristic set designs complete with Reneigh the horse, a set of mechanical arms and a giant disco ball.

On the tour, Mrs. Knowles-Carter has also paid homage to the LGBTQIA+ community with a ballroom scene featuring Honey Balenciaga and Carlos Basquiat. Will they make an appearance in Los Angeles? We just have to wait and watch.

Another surprise guest? Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé and Jay Z’s daughter, was a backup dancer at some shows. Is the 11-year-old back to school, or is she on an extended summer break? Keep an eye out for her, especially during “My Power.”

A home is decorated with white and red lights for the holidays. Two trees in front of the homes are also decorated with lights as are the bushes on the sidewalk.

Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ World Tour Proves Her Power

Los Angeles Welcomes the Global Music Icon with Open Arms

I didn’t quite realize how culturally significant Beyoncé was until I went to the Renaissance World Tour .

As I tried my best to navigate the crowd entering SoFi Stadium for her Los Angeles show, all I could focus on were the swarms of silver and chrome. The creativity was delightful, as I passed rhinestone crop tops, tights, every style of skirt, an army of light-up cowboy hats, and a simple sparkly dress walking next to a getup made of almost exclusively chains.

DJ Khaled kicked off the night, bringing out a variety of notable special guests. Wiz Khalifa sang “See You Again,” and Offset from Migos performed “ Bad and Boujee .” More popped out from behind the stage in what felt like a lucky dip of surprise performers, including 2 Chainz, Coi Leray, Roddy Ricch, and Lil Wayne. The opening act lineup was the craziest I’d ever seen, but if it were going to happen anywhere, it would be here. It’s L.A., and, more importantly, it’s Beyoncé.

beyonce world tour la

Before she went on, and every time she wasn’t on stage, audience members would dance and sing with one another, often crossing rows and joining strangers in celebration (quickly scolded by security). I’ve never seen pre-show energy like it.  

Then Beyoncé took the stage and wasted no time showing off her acrobatic pipes, hitting every note in every run with ease. She stood still, held the microphone gently, and sang “Dangerously in Love,” an ode to her Destiny’s Child days. After a few more vocal gymnastics, most notably shown off by “1+1,” she disappeared behind the stage for the next part of the show.

Changing up the energy entirely, Beyoncé boldly boasted “Alien Superstar,” “Cuff It,” and “Break My Soul,” recent cuts that have been popular on the airwaves, with the former expertly incorporating elements of her throwback hit “Sweet Dreams,” adding even more danceability to the groove-laden track. And, of course, the audience cleared the mute challenge during “Energy,” a staple of each show.

When the beginning notes of “Formation” started, I was immediately taken back to when the music video first dropped — it was all my friends and I could talk about. Beyoncé remarked how she’s been doing this for more than 20 years, and how each and every night, she “doesn’t take it for granted.” As she really took her time to look up into each and every section of the stadium, you could tell she really meant it. Her eyes were filled with gratitude and joy, and she placed a hand on her chest. 

beyonce world tour la

Beyoncé’s career has soundtracked the last few decades with a thick permanent marker, intrepidly piercing culture. It is so wide-reaching that it seemed like each audience member had a song like that for them. Whether it was punching fists in the air to the beat to “Crazy in Love,” singing every word to her verse in “Savage,” or collectively screaming, “Hey, Miss Carter!” when “Partition” started, the joy on every person’s face was the special kind, the kind that music like Beyoncé’s can instantly take you to.

Her daughter Blue Ivy made a surprise appearance, joining in to dance to “Black Parade” and “My Power.” The showmanship was charismatic and proper (she learned from the best) as she motioned to her sparkly “Los Angeles” shirt she donned. Beyoncé beamed at her with glowing pride, and it was both a precious way to celebrate family and a shocking reminder of how impressive it is that Beyoncé is a mother and reaching middle age, and I was not clocking it at all as she outdanced her dancers, or more accurately, continued to outperform the world.

One of the moments that truly captured the radiating energy of the night included the rapturous “Love on Top” sing-along, where Beyoncé stopped singing halfway through the famous end-of-song key change, and the audience sang a whopping five stanzas on their own. “Okay now,” she playfully teased, holding in a laugh, finally calming the arena down.

She concluded the show flying, beaming over the crowd on a chrome horse (à la her Renaissance cover), the tail of her silver dress flying behind her. Beyoncé’s outfits perfectly billow away from her even as she dances, and this is no exception.

Destiny's Child Reunited at Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour: See the Photo

Reunited and it feels so good! Since they debuted in 1997, Destiny's Child has become one of the most successful, beloved and acclaimed girl groups in music history. The group formally disbanded in 2006 - although they've since reunited at Beyoncé ‘s 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show and 2018 Coachella headlining performance - but fans have been aching for a public reunion of all of the key original members. Thanks to a pic posted by OG group member LeToya Luckett on Wednesday (Jan. 3), fans finally got their wish.

"[All love.] This was hands down my favorite moment of 2023," Luckett captioned the post. "[The love, the joy, the prayer, the healing.] May we all experience beautiful moments like this in 2024." In the picture, Luckett, Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland , Michelle Williams , and LaTavia Roberson pose backstage at Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour stop in Houston.

Beyoncé, Luckett and Roberson threw up H-Town hand signs to highlight their hometown of Houston, and Rowland and Williams opted for simple peace signs. While Beyoncé was dressed down in a simple black hoodie and sweats - she did just perform a nearly three-hour set, after all! - the four other Destiny's Child members were decked out in glittery silvers and blacks to keep in line with the Renaissance dress code.

Fans got a brief glimpse at the moment behind the reunion picture in Beyoncé's box office-topping Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé documentary concert film. While Beyoncé didn't reveal exactly what the five ladies caught up on, her narration echoed the sentiments of healing that Luckett expressed in her caption. While the picture has delighted fans, it's also sparked some rumors about more concrete reunion plans - but those remains just that, rumors.

Destiny's Child has earned 10 top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 , including the No. 1 hits "Say My Name" (three weeks), "Independent Women, Part I" (11 weeks), "Bills, Bills, Bills" (one week) and "Bootylicious" (two weeks). On the Billboard 200 , the Grammy-winning vocal group has scored four top 10 entries, including the chart-toppers Survivor (two weeks) and #1's (one week).

Check out the Destiny's Child reunion picture and some of the best fan reactions below:

Beyoncé's Mom Apologizes for 'Disrespecting' Janet Jackson

Beyoncé's mom found herself in hot water and needing to apologize to Janet Jackson fans after she seemed to disrespect the music star.

The furor started when Tina Knowles liked an Instagram post by a friend that complained about the ticket prices for Jackson's upcoming tour.

"What a joke....they add $1000 for a 15 second meet & greet again. No front row for fans unless you want to bend over so they can continue to rake in the cash," Instagram user @let68 captioned the post.

tina knowles and janet jackson

They continued by arguing to charge a lot of money for tickets you need to have a Beyoncé level of production, referring to the singer's recent Renaissance world tour.

"You want Beyoncé prices, have real production. Just disgusted. I'm not the only one...oh the DMs I'm getting. Way to thank your fans for years of support," @let68 wrote.

Some people noticed Knowles had liked the post and took it as a sign she was being negative towards Jackson. A number of people also hit out at Beyoncé's fans for joining a social media pile on about Jackson.

"Tina Knowles responds about her shading Janet Jackson. I'm hoping Beyoncé fans can leave Janet alone I love Beyoncé too but Yall doing the most dragging Janet," one person wrote on X, formerly Twitter .

Another added: "there's no way i opened this app to janet jackson slander. the disrespect... get a grip."

"I do not understand what is the weird obsession with disrespecting The Jacksons. To see Tina Knowles like a post that disrespect Janet makes me loose all respect for her," a third said.

Newsweek contacted Knowles and Jackson by email for comment.

  • Donald Trump goes after Taylor Swift
  • Beyoncé was called the "Queen of Rap" and the internet lost it

Knowles later took to her own Instagram to clarify the situation and said she had nothing but love for Jackson.

"I am saddened by this. Janet Jackson is an icon and I would never question another artist. I took Destiny's Child to see Janet when they were 15 years old. They always looked up to her and she opened doors for Beyoncé," she captioned the video.

"Why would I hate on her ? I know now not to be in a rush and to be very careful. (I learned my lesson) ! Especially when I have so much going on.. I just wanted to clarify. . I do know that you can see people's likes so I would be pretty dumb to do that."

In the video, Knowles explained she sometimes likes posts on Instagram without paying direct attention to what they're saying, but vowed to be more careful in the future.

"First of all, being on the other side of that, I know better than anyone what a great production cost and that is expensive. And I would never criticize another artist, let alone Janet Jackson, who is the queen of production," Knowles began.

"And her family [The Jacksons]? I mean they are the First Family of music always have been, and will always will be in our love and I respect them.

"Secondly, I stay away from negativity. If you follow me then you know that I'm not involved in the mess. What I am guilty of is liking post, going through when I'm in a big hurry and I don't have time to really read and liking things because I trust that these are people that I follow, that was a big mistake."

Knowles concluded: "I will never do that again. So I just want you to hear it from my mouth that I would absolutely never do that."

Jackson is currently completing her first tour in four years called Janet Jackson: Together Again. It was meant to mark her 50th anniversary of being in the music industry but was postponed in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Beyoncé’s birthday Renaissance show celebrated the depths of Black womanhood

Beyonce performs onstage during the "Renaissance World Tour" at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Watching Beyoncé at the Renaissance tour is an exercise in ripping open and throwing aside the boxes of ourselves and leaving them strewn among folding fans and silver sequins.

It didn’t dawn on me until my second time seeing Beyoncé perform this week that I have been a fan for all of my life so far.

She pointed it out when she gave a short opening speech during the show on her birthday expressing gratitude to everyone who had supported her since 1997. I didn’t realize I could attach a year to how long I’ve loved her and her music.

I started as a Destiny’s Child fan at about 6 years old. I would perk up from reading my books when seeing this group of beautiful Black women appear on the television screen. I remember hearing the beat of “No, No, No” come on the radio. At age 7 I had no clue what a “Bug A Boo” was, but I knew the words to the song and would bob my head to the beat. I didn’t know about “Bills, Bills, Bills,” but I sang the chorus like I had them, making sure to be just as emphatic as the group was with the “I don’t think you do” and trying to elongate my o’s at “so you and me are through.” Years later I still smile if “Lose my Breath” or “Survivor” or “Bootylicious” starts playing in a happenstance shuffle of my playlists.

When the group parted ways, many of us virtually lined up to support Beyoncé’s solo career. We remember the attempts at doing the Beyoncé bounce from “Crazy in Love” or trying to catch a glimpse of any of her music videos on BET’s 106 and Park or MTV’s TRL. We sent nonexistent and real exes packing when “Irreplaceable” and “Single Ladies” were released and later on dissected images and meanings when rewatching the visuals for her “Lemonade” album. I remember being in awe at 12 years old — with my acne scars, big glasses and lacking a sense of confidence in my looks — when she did her walkway strut toward the screen in her orange dress in the last scenes of the “Crazy in Love” music video. I was listening to her albums as I hustled to and from classes during college, putting together my internship applications and during long drives to move to new cities for new jobs. I was sad to not see her live at Beychella , but I did smile watching the footage of her dancing with her sister Solange to the end of “Get Me Bodied.” Her Renaissance album came out on the six-month mark of my father’s passing . Almost every era of my life can be traced to a Beyoncé song.

Photos: Beyoncé fans arrive in style for the first of three shows at SoFi Stadium

Check out our photo gallery from Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour stop at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. Beyoncé asked the beyhive to don their “most fabulous silver fashions” to celebrate “Virgo season together in the house of chrome,” and her fans delivered.

Sept. 2, 2023

As I watched people make their way to their seats in SoFi Stadium, I smiled seeing the creative outfits. The displays of chests, thighs and cheeks on every body type in sequins or sheer shirts answered the evening’s call to freedom of body, movement and expression. But I also considered what it took for all of us to be sitting at SoFi just to be in the same arena of Queen Bey. I smiled thinking of how many text threads and phone calls last summer revolved around the Renaissance album that was played on repeat for weeks and months to relive the thrill of the song transitions or debate the top songs. There were people who determinedly budgeted for tickets and started a new savings account just to scrape their dollars together for the tour. There were people who prayed for a ticket code and then had to do an Ocean’s 11 style coordination among their friends and family to make it through the TicketMaster trenches to get a coveted seat.

Fans stand in line to purchase merch at Beyonce's Renaissance World Tour on Friday.

Beyoncé’s birthday show transcended the decades of creativity, love and growth that she pours into her work and journey in womanhood. When she opened with “Dangerously in Love,” the song and title of her first solo album, looking serene and regal, hair billowing softly with the stage fans, I was reminded of the courage and faith she had in herself to pursue a solo career. Somewhere amid the emotional lump in my throat as she sang — as if I hadn’t just seen her perform in late July — I could feel the vibrations of the final crescendo of the song in my chest as her notes went higher. Her performance of “Flaws and All” when she smiled into the camera while singing the line “I don’t know why you love me” was a moving reminder of how her pursuit of impeccability still allows her to own and embrace the imperfections she likely tries to work on as a human, daughter, sister, wife, friend and artist. In these opening moments the BeyHive could bask in the memories of longtime love for Beyoncé and what was collectively endured to be there in the darkness of that arena with nothing but the stage screen, lights, sequins and soft glows of cellphones.

Seeing Beyoncé perform at any of her shows on this tour was bound to be a soul-restoring experience. But seeing her perform on her birthday and get to celebrate among the BeyHive holds a special significance. We watched her make a speech that left many of us with lumps in our throats or tears rolling down our face as she talked about turning 42 and expressing gratitude that she was still alive and here with us performing, for the healing power of music, the support and love of her family and friends and fans and for the stretch marks and FUPAs that come with aging, body changes and womanhood.

Beyoncé lays claim to the throne at SoFi Stadium

A singular force, Beyoncé honored her musical and spiritual forebearers and proved herself, once again, to be as dynamic a performer as pop music has ever seen.

Sept. 1, 2023

The reality is too many Black women don’t make it to 42 and too many are not celebrated. We’re dying from childbirth. We’re dying from violence . We’re going missing and hardly anyone is looking for us. We’re overlooked and undervalued. In an era when the pleas and battle cries of “support Black women” and “protect Black women” often ring hollow, displays of reverence and joy over Black women’s existence is often fleeting. When Black women attempt to celebrate their achievements and survival when others won’t or to speak their truth about experiences with racism, prejudice, violence and misogynoir, there’s a virtual shushing that tends to happen. Black women are pressured to be the backbone for people, institutions and systems when their backs are already breaking or broken. Being part of the BeyHive often means Beyoncé’s music takes the weight of the world off of our backs whether its a three-minute song or a near three-hour concert. The BeyHive protects Beyoncé because her existence and music have so often offered refuge from the world when loud and proud versions of love, support and positivity can be hard to find. The only time Beyoncé calls for us to mute ourselves is during the song “Energy,” nothing more, nothing less.

But observing and experiencing her performance means bearing witness to a celebration of the depths of our collective multitudes. Black women are often tasked with boxing up their expressiveness and expansiveness to make space for others. For the sake of others’ comforts and perceived social order Black women are asked to pack away our joy, our anger, our sadness, our tiredness, our bodies, our political convictions, our ideas, our creativity, our truths and our achievements. Watching Beyoncé and her team perform at the Renaissance tour is an exercise in ripping open and throwing aside the boxes of ourselves and leaving them strewn behind folding fans and silver sequins. Celebrating getting to see Beyoncé live on her birthday meant getting to celebrate the wide range of being we do not always get to openly sit with like unapologetic displays of self-love, self-worth and self-belief, sexuality and sexual prowess and grief over lost time and lost love. While anything offered for public consumption is open to critique, the Renaissance show was a grandiose dare to anyone who tried to ask us to be less of ourselves.

That meant being nearly out of breath trying to sing the repeated last lines of “Love on Top” while Beyoncé pointed the mic to the crowd because even though she couldn’t see us you wanted to make her proud that we attempted to hit the notes. We got chills watching her and the other performers do the slow nod to the opening beats of “Formation” as Big Freedia’s voiceover made clear we would have a taste of what Queen Bey wanted to offer us and nothing more. We all sounded like proud family members at a graduation as we watched her daughter Blue Ivy dance. We made sure to do her and her Uncle Johnny proud when we sang the last one minute and 19 seconds of “Heated.” We were all in communal disbelief and excitement when Diana Ross appeared on stage and led us in singing happy birthday to Beyoncé, a meeting between two generations on a stage that you may only see live in person once in your lifetime. We nearly fell out when Kendrick Lamar made an appearance to rap his part of the “America Has a Problem” remix while Beyoncé danced. At the end of each show on the tour she is lifted off of a large silver horse amid falling silver confetti.

You don’t want to be the person who says “you just had to be there,” but in some ways you had to be. It’s an echo of the renaissances we read about now — you can’t unsee it and you have to spread the word about it because you can’t keep the newfound experience of inspiration, grandness and creativity to yourself.

At the end of the show, Beyoncé called on the audience to hold onto how they feel in that moment and remember who they were with. The trouble with celebrations is you don’t want them to end because you don’t know if or when you’ll be able to feel that euphoric feeling again. Celebrations are so often scheduled, but it’s not promised everyone will be there. For Black women especially, time is often of the essence to celebrate and uplift them while they can still see it, hear it, feel it and revel in it.
