Bey-hive members, the time is almost here! Beyoncé is about to embark on her sixth solo world tour and fans are excited.
On TikTok, fans are getting ready by showing off their potential outfits for the concert. There is a divide on the app about what stylistic theme to follow for the show. Some people feel the performance will showcase futuristic cowgirl imagery. Others feel Beyoncé has hinted that the vibe is high fashion. It’s a practical assumption. The singer recently announced her co-designed collection of pieces with Balmain. Each piece of the line is based on the songs from the “Renaissance” album.
On another side of TikTok, fans have been getting ready for the tour by practicing her songs and testing other users on the correct lyrics and dance moves. More specifically, they’ve been campaigning that all concertgoers bring folding fans to the show and use them in unison during the performance of the song “Heated.” Meanwhile, the song “Alien Superstar” is being used to motivate users on the app to get in shape. The idea is that if Beyoncé is training, then all her fans should be as well.
The “Cuff It” singer will kick off her tour at Friends Arena in Stockholm on May 10. Ahead of what is sure to be the start of a legendary tour, 21Ninety has rounded up some of Beyoncé’s top performance moments to prepare you for her Renaissance tour.
Top Beyoncé Performance Moments
Atlantis The Royal Resort
The singer’s most recent performance in Duabi was Beyoncé’s first concert performance in four years. She was offered 24 million dollars to perform at the grand opening of Dubai’s newest luxury hotel, Atlantis The Royal Resort. There she performed hits like “Naughty Girl,” “Crazy in Love,” and “Beautiful Liar.” She even performed some newer hits like “Spirit,” “Be Alive,” and was joined on stage by her daughter, Blue Ivy, for “Brown Skin Girl.” The night was one to remember but the moment that solidified the performance was her “Drunk In Love” finale. She rose up high above the audience while fireworks and aqua pyro technics stunned the crowd. She sang the beginning riff of the song in a fashion, no one has ever heard before. Thus leading to a social media challenge to see who could recreate that riff the best.
Beyoncé Headlining Coachella a.k.a. Bey-Chella
Who could forget Bey-Chella. The singer tore down the Coachella stage in 2018 when she took HBCU culture and put it on display. Not only did Beyoncé perform for thousands of people in California at the festival itself, but she turned it into a Netflix documentary for the entire world to see. The performance was the most-watched live performance on YouTube of all time. Additionally, the Netflix film went on to earn an Emmy nomination in 2019.
2017 Grammy Awards
Beyoncé’s Grammy performance in 2017 had everyone on edge but it was worth every minute. This was the singer’s first performance while pregnant with twins, Sir and Rumi. She just announced the pregnancy only a few weeks before the awards show. She performed beautiful renditions of “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” while using holograms, digital screens, and headpieces to showcase religious symbolism from a Hindu goddess to the Virgin Mary.
2011 MTV Video Music Awards
Lastly, speaking of pregnancy, we can’t forget the time Queen Bey gave us the best pregnancy reveal of all time. At the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, the singer gave us an outstanding performance of her hit single “Love On Top.” She began the performance by saying “I want you to feel the love that has been growing inside me,” little did we know that she meant that literally. After belting the high notes at the end of the song, Beyoncé dropped the mic (literally) and opened her blazer to reveal that she was pregnant with her first child, Blue Ivy! To this day, that may have been one of the best pregnancy reveals in pop culture history.
