Beyoncé appears to have confirmed she’ll hit the road in 2023 for a new world tour in support of new album Renaissance.

Apparent confirmation of the dates emerged this weekend at the fifth annual Wearable Art Gala, when “two concert tickets to Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ 2023 tour” were put under the hammer along with a backstage tour from Beyoncé’s mum, Miss Tina.

An auction listing stated: “Celebrating her seventh studio album, Beyoncé has announced that she will be taking ‘Renaissance’ on tour and we are offering an exclusive 2 tickets to see her live from anywhere around the world, courtesy of United Airlines and their Polaris package.”

While the ticket package was valued at a rather eye-watering $20,000 (£17,670), the winner was given the chance to see Beyoncé “on tour, starting Summer 2023” as well as being provided with first class flights and accommodation.

Specific tour dates are yet to emerge, but the listing promises a selection of “national and international destinations.” It’s believed that the winning bid was $150,000 (£132,000).

Beyoncé’s last tour came in 2018’s On The Run II, which saw her hit the stage with husband Jay-Z.

The Wearable Art Gala was founded by Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson and her husband, actor Richard Lawson, to fund the Where Art Can Occur arts and youth mentorship programmes. Both Beyoncé and Jay-Z were present at Saturday’s event (October 22).

In a review of Beyoncé’s Renaissance, Rolling Stone UK wrote: “This is not necessarily Beyoncé at her cleverest, or most innovative, but it is Beyoncé at her most unguarded: revelling in her body and the imperfections caused by truly living in it, loving on her man, partying with misfits, squeezing every moment out of life and urging the rest of us to do the same. It’s a call we must heed.”
