Beyonce’s 2023 tour is coming to the Bay Area
Beyonce announced her long-awaited Renaissance World Tour on Wednesday morning, and the members of Bay Area Beyhive can rejoice. Northern California fans will get a chance to see Queen B in person when she stops at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara on August 30.
“Renaissance” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in August 2022. It was Beyonce’s seventh album to reach the top spot – a record for female artists. An accompanying world tour has been expected since the release of the album. Fans have also grown eager for a visual album, which has been rumored for months.
The performance in August will mark Beyonce’s first show in the Bay Area since performing Levi’s in 2018 with husband Jay-Z on the On the Run II Tour. Levi’s Stadium was also the location of the famous (and in some circles controversial) Super Bowl 50 halftime show where Beyonce debuted her hit “Formation,” the lead single from her iconic 2016 visual album ” Lemonade”.

The Renaissance tour will also stop in Los Angeles with a show at SoFi Stadium on September 2, the only other date scheduled in California. Other West Coast stops include Glendale, Arizona (August 24), Las Vegas (August 26), Vancouver, British Columbia (September 11) and Seattle (September 13).
With Beyonce’s announcement, 2023 is shaping up to be a landmark year for Bay Area stadium shows. Taylor Swift will play two shows at Levi’s Stadium in late July, Ed Sheeran is scheduled to retire in September, Blink-182’s reunion tour will take place in San Jose and Sacramento in May, and Madonna has two shows at Chase Center in October.
Although tickets for Beyonce’s shows are not yet available, fans are encouraged to pre-register in advance. Citi is sponsoring the tour, so fans with Citibank credit cards will likely have easier access to tickets. Registration for the Santa Clara show is live and will remain open through Thursday, February 9.
Ticketmaster is hosting the ticketing process despite its recent debacle with Swift’s tour. The site’s handling of The Eras Tour tickets, which included skyrocketing prices and failures to process sales, was so horrendous that the ticketing platform is currently under investigation by Congress. .
