Beyonce wraps her 56-date Renaissance Tour with an estimated $579 million revenue haul.
Last Sunday, Beyonce’s phenomenally successful Renaissance World Tour officially wrapped up in Kansas City at the GEHA Field At Arrowhead Stadium — the final and 56th performance on a journey across ten countries. Just minutes after the show, Beyonce announced “Renaissance: A Film By Beyonce,” a theatrical experience chronicling her vision and hard work as both creative and producer, and her process to executing the 39-city outing. The film debuts in December.
Produced by Parkwood Entertainment and promoted by Live Nation, Beyonce’s 56-date tour kicked off in May with shows throughout Europe, and proceeded to North America beginning in July. The tour included a 300+ member touring crew, including musicians, dancers, production teams, and more, and raked in over $579 million worldwide according to figures shared with Digital Music News.
Her five sold-out shows at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium marked a historic moment, as no one has played so many shows at the stadium since its opening in 2019. An impressive 238,000 fans were in attendance across all five shows to see one of the most celebrated performers alive.
Along the tour, Beyonce included an impressive list of special guests, including Kendrick Lamar in Los Angeles to perform their remix of “America Has a Problem,” Megan Thee Stallion to perform “Savage Remix” in Houston, and Beyonce’s 11-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, across multiple dates. The legendary Diana Ross surprised the singer during her birthday show on September 4, when the former Supremes lead joined her onstage and led Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium in a Happy Birthday singalong.
Each audience featured fans showing off their concert attire and self-expression, as Beyonce personally requested that fans wear their “most fabulous silver fashions” to the show to cast the illusion of a shimmering human disco ball in the House of Chrome. Fans danced the electric slide to “Cuff It,” sang along and clicked their handheld fans to the outro of “Heated,” and competed against other fans in each city during the mute challenge during “Energy.”
Anything Beyonce does becomes a cultural moment, but as The New York Times declared, the Renaissance World Tour has become “a cultural movement.”
