What to know about Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour

The Renaissance Tour was launched May 10 in Stockholm, Sweden, with a concert the Guardian hailed as "a lavish leap forward for live entertainment, dripping with sci-fi disco decadence, sex and Black pride" and "a monster blockbuster concert experience on a different plane."

This is the pop icon's first solo outing since the Formation World Tour in 2016.

The concert is divided into six acts with Beyoncé performing the songs from "Renaissance" in order, interspersed with highlights spanning her career. She's even been setting the stage with a Destiny's Child song.

The show received critical acclaim, with particular praise for the production value and Beyoncé's vocal performance.

The Scotsman raved "Given the sheer volume of spectacle fizzing around this titanically ambitious event, it’s not hyperbole to say it’s surely the most essential stadium concert tour of the 21st century so far, delivered by its single most defining pop megastar."

The Telegraph also awarded the tour launch a five-star review, writing, "We've seen plenty of multimedia rock extravaganzas and state of the art pop spectaculars, but this was something else: a sci-fi stadium-scale superclub, the greatest disco in the known universe."
