What Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour Is Like
The big night has finally arrived: Beyoncé returned to the stage in Stockholm, Sweden to kick off her Renaissance World tour, with the icon serving as her own opening act, main show, and encore. Photos and videos have surfaced of the show, giving a little glimpse of what those lucky enough to attend got to take in. Here, a look at the stage, to start:
And the program:
Beyoncé opened by performing non-Renaissance songs, a clever way of starting the show and dipping into her beloved discography.
Songs she performed included “Dangerously in Love,” “Flaws and All,” and “1+1.”Beyoncé got emotional while performing “Flaws and All” and told her fans before singing that track, “And I love you, and I’m so filled with gratitude. I thank you.”
“I Care” followed.
From there, the Renaissance portion began with Bey singing, “I’m That Girl,” while wearing a silver Courrèges bodysuit:
