Beyoncé is currently on her major “Renaissance” tour. After giving two opening performances in Stockholm (May 10) and Brussels (May 14), Beyoncé took her long-awaited ‘Renaissance’ tour to the UK – starting with a performance in Cardiff last Wednesday (May 17) and at Sunderland’s Stadium Of Lumière on Tuesday May 23, before heading to Paris for a show at the Stade De France.
From there, she will perform back-to-back dates at the Tottenham Hotspurs stadium in London on May 29 and 30, before enlisting on further European dates and eventually heading to North America.
At shows, Beyoncé surprised fans by making on-site bathrooms gender-neutral — despite the tour halting in many states that recently passed laws and policies banning gender-affirming care for children under 18 years old. These states included Arizona, Georgia, Kentucky, Florida, Missouri and Tennessee.
It was also reported earlier this month that Beyoncé could make over $2billion (£1.6billion) from the tour, more than half a billion more than Taylor Swift is expected to win on his “Eras” tour.
