The wait is over! Beyonce confirmed that she’s planning a 2023 world tour in an Instagram post on Wednesday, February 1. The “Break My Soul” singer, 41, shared a photo of a tour poster in the same style as her 2022 record Renaissance on Instagram, captioning it with the exciting announcement. “RENAISSANCE. WORLD TOUR 2023,” she wrote along with the photo.

Bey will hit the road beginning in May, and the tour will take her across Europe and North America. She listed the dates on her website. She’ll kick off the run in Stockholm, Sweden on May 10. The singer will end the European run on June 27 in Warsaw, Poland, but will only take a short break before the next leg begins in Toronto, Canada on July 8. The run will conclude on September 27 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Here are all the details you need about the upcoming tour.

When was Beyonce’s last tour?

The Renaissance tour will mark the singer’s first outing since her 2018 “On The Run II” tour alongside her husband Jay-Z. The co-headlining run came for the pair to promote their 2018 collaborative record Everything Is Love, which they released under the name The Carters. The 48-show tour saw the two superstars bring their show to Europe and North America, beginning in Cardiff, Wales, and ending in Seattle, Washington.

The tour will also mark her first solo run since her epic 2018 headlining performance at Coachella, which was released as a live album and concert film Homecoming. Prior to the music festival performance, Bey’s last solo tour was the “Formation” world tour in 2016.

Ahead of the tour announcement, Beyonce did perform a special one-off concert at the luxury hotel Atlantis The Royal in Dubai in January. The 17-song private event was divided into three acts and had songs spanning her career and perhaps was a preview of what fans could expect on the tour.
