Beyoncé’s highly anticipated “Renaissance” world tour was announced earlier this week — and fans have been buzzing about getting their hands on the sought-after tickets.
The megastar, 41, is setting out on her first stadium stretch in five years, since her “On The Run II Tour” with husband Jay-Z, to promote her chart-topping 2022 album “Renaissance.”She’ll hit parts of Europe and the UK first, before beginning the US leg at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field on July 12.
Ticketmaster released a statement this week, claiming that in some cities, pre-sale registration for “Renaissance” tour tickets has exceeded “the number of available tickets by more than 800%.”
Eager fans are already anticipating a jaw-dropping price tag to see Queen Bey live, with some taking extreme measures to obtain quick cash.
One man named Jamaal Anderson has already raised $265 of his $300 goal on GoFundMe.
“This is the only life experience I care about living before I die,” he wrote on the fundraiser page. “I will get those front row tickets either way but this way is safer than selling my kidney on the black market.”
“All jokes aside just being in the building would be the most amazing thing ever,” he added. “So help a brother out if you can. Remember cents turn into dollars. Every little bit helps.”
Ashley St. Hilaire, a fellow fundraiser, is seeking $2,000 — but had only gathered $60 in donations as of Saturday afternoon. In her online plea, she claims the funds will go to tickets, travel expenses and a show-worthy outfit.
Other fundraisers include April Cousar, who has racked up $140 already, and Raheem Solomon, who’s netted $135.
