The much-awaited ‘Renaissance’ world tour has begun, and Beyoncé’s first stop in Sweden is jam-packed with exciting surprises!

Even those who can’t attend her big debut performance at Stockholm’s Friends Arena are buzzing with excitement because it will be Beyoncé’s first tour in 4.5 years. The 41-year-old singer-songwriter and dancer opened the concert with her classic hit Dangerously in Love, so the early reviews are definitely worth all the hype.

The Crazy In Love singer kicked off her first solo tour in seven years on May 10 at Stockholm’s Friends Arena, competing with Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras’ tour.


The Renaissance World Tour is expected to generate an astounding $2.4 billion in revenue, outpacing Swift’s ‘Eras’ tour by about $500 million, according to Forbes.

Beyonce’s Renaissance World Tour Can Beat Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour Record

Unique! That’s undoubtedly the most accurate way to describe the attire worn by Beyoncé during her Renaissance World Tour, which began on Wednesday in Stockholm. 

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, also known as Queen Bey, could make close to $2.1 billion from her Renaissance World Tour. This will be about $500 million more than Taylor Swift’s potential earnings of $1.6 billion from ‘Eras’.

Those staggering estimates are predicated on the most optimistic predictions of the number of fans purchasing concert tickets and on a high average ticket price of about $700. In addition, Forbes assumes that the artists receive a sizable portion of the profits from merchandise sales and that 20% of the revenues will be used to cover tour costs. Thus, leaving them with the remaining 80% of earnings.


By the time it wraps up in September, Renaissance could have earned anywhere from $275 million to $2.4 billion just from ticket sales. On the other hand, Era’s most optimistic box office prediction is $1.9 billion, far behind Beyoncé’s most optimistic estimate of $2.4 billion.

This high revenue potential is due to a variety of factors, including Beyoncé’s protracted tour break.

Well, these optimistic assumptions make sense, given that fans’ long-simmering desire to attend live performances at the end of a more than three-year pandemic.

In addition, costs for VIP tour arrangements range from $3757 to $5000. The estimation also assumes that artists will receive a sizable cut in merchandise sales, leaving them with 80% of tour earnings after expenses.
