Beyoncé is giving music fans a run for their money as she announces a Renaissance World Tour and the tour dates.
The tour will kick off on May 10 with a European leg. Meanwhile, the North American leg of the Renaissance World Tour will then kick off July 8 in Toronto, Canada.
Beyoncé’s last toured on her own during the The Formation World Tour in 2016. She also co-headlined the On the Run II Tour alongside her husband Jay-Z.
As many fans know, Renaissance is the first of three projects to make up her trilogy of albums. Unsurprisingly, the record debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart in July. Renaissance came out six years after Queen B's last solo album, Lemonade.
The album features a slew of Black and queer artists like Big Freedia, Honey Dijon, Ts Madison, and Syd. Even more, Beyoncé shared that the album is dedicated to her family, including her late gay uncle.
"A big thank you to my Uncle Jonny. He was my godmother and the first person to expose me to a lot of the music and culture that serve as inspiration for this album," she wrote. "Thank you to all of the pioneers who originate culture, to all of the fallen angels whose contributions have gone unrecognized for far too long. This is a celebration for you."
She’s also paid tribute to Jonny during her 2019 GLAAD Media Awards acceptance speech where she accepted the year's Vanguard Award.
"He was brave and unapologetic during a time when this country wasn't as accepting," she said at the queer-centric event, where she received the group's Vanguard Award. "Witnessing his battle with HIV was one of the most painful experiences I've ever lived. I'm hopeful that his struggles serve to open pathways for other young people to live more freely. LGBTQI rights are human rights."Drag Society today.
