UPDATED FEB. 2: A second Soldier Field show has been added to the schedule, on July 23. Tickets for both the July 22 and July 23 shows are not yet on sale. Verified Fan Registration (see below) for the second show closes at 11 am. Feb. 3. at beyonce.livenation.com.

Beyoncé took to Instagram on Wednesday morning to announce the dates for her Renaissance World Tour, which kicks off in Stockholm, Sweden, in May, and includes a stop in Chicago on July 22 at Soldier Field.

The tour is in support of the chart-topping “Renaissance,” her seventh studio album, released in July.

While ticket onsale dates have been announced for the European leg of the tour, current info includes the opportunity to “register” via Verified Fan for all U.S. dates. Registration for “Group A,” which includes Chicago, is open through 10:59 p.m. (Chicago time) Feb. 2. You can check out the seat map at ticketmaster.com. (It all begs the question: How will ticket sales fare in the wake of the recent Taylor Swift debacle via Ticketmaster/LiveNation?)

“Renaissance” is up for album of the year at this year’s Grammy Awards, which will be presented Sunday night. The album garnered nine Grammy nominations, including three nods for “Break My Soul” for record of the year, song of the year and best dance/electronic recording.

The tour announcement comes in the wake of Beyoncé’s recent concert in Dubai last month, which marked her first full live show since 2018. That year marked a joint world tour with Beyoncé and hubby Jay-Z, including two sold-out shows at Soldier Field.
