Last week (February 1), Beyoncé announced that she will return to the UK for the first time since her ‘On the Run II’ tour with Jay-Z in 2018, and for the first time as a solo artist since 2016. She will play stadium dates in England, Scotland and Wales in May and June in support of Renaissance, her fourth UK number one album.

The dates come as part of a wider European tour that kicks off in Stockholm on May 10. She will play Brussels, Paris, Lyon, Barcelona, Marseille, Cologne, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Warsaw on the jaunt. On the back of Beyoncé becoming the most successful artist in the history of the Grammy Awards at last night’s (February 5) ceremony, find out all you need to know about her visit to the UK here.

Where in the UK is Beyoncé playing?

The ‘Break My Soul’ star heads first for Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on May 17, for a third appearance there after previous visits in 2016 and 2018. She then heads to Scotland, and Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium, on May 20, for what will be her first ever appearance in the Scottish capital, not counting a performance with Sean Paul at the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2003. Then, she’ll travel south of the border to Sunderland, and the Stadium of Light, on May 23; she played there on the Formation World Tour in 2016. The UK leg will wrap up in North London at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a three-night stand on May 29, 30 and June 2.
