Even if you couldn’t get tickets for Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour, you surely have seen many of the highlights online. The tour started back in May overseas, and the multi-hyphenate performer has not skipped a beat since.
The Renaissance tour is in support of her Grammy-winning album of the same name. Renaissance scored Beyoncé her seventh No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 when it was released last year. At the 2023 Grammy Awards, the singer became the most-awarded artist in Grammy history. Hungarian-British orchestral and operatic conductor Georg Solti previously held the title with 31 Grammy wins. She took the lead with her acceptance of Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for Renaissance, her 32nd.

“I want to thank God for protecting me. Thank you, God. I’d like to thank my Uncle Johnny, who’s not here, but he’s here in spirit,” Beyoncé began when she took the stage. “I’d like to thank my parents, my father, my mother for loving me and pushing me. I’d like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three children who are at home watching. 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. Thank you.”
That night she also won Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Plastic Off The Sofa,” Best R&B Song for “Cuff It,” and Best Dance/Electronic Recording for “Break My Soul.”
Her Grammy acceptance came four days after the announcement of her Renaissance World Tour. She has been able to see fans all over the world; her dates have included Paris, Stockholm, New Jersey, Boston, Los Angeles, her home city of Houston, and more before ending the tour on Oct. 1 in Kansas City.
The Renaissance World Tour marks Beyoncé’s first tour in five years. Her last tour was in 2018 for On The Run II alongside husband Jay-Z.
