It’s possible that Beyonce fans in Africa won’t completely miss out on the Renaissance world tour because it’s been reported that she’s in negotiations to bring the eagerly anticipated show to Ghana.
The Break My Soul singer’s confirmation that she will finally perform her Renaissance album live this summer, with dates set for both Europe and North America, has the music industry in a frenzy.
It comes after Beyonce, 41, gave a private performance in Dubai more than a week ago, but she didn’t play any brand-new songs from the album’s dance-inspired collection, leaving fans waiting.
So far, cities on the Renaissance tour include London, Cardiff, Stockholm, Toronto, Las Vegas, Miami, and Houston.
What about Africa, though?
Beyonce’s fans across the continent have long complained that she rarely tours there, with her tour legs typically consisting of the Americas, Europe, and Oceania.
With the 2019 release of the The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack, which drew inspiration from Africa and featured a number of Afrobeats and dancehall artists, there was new hope that the Brown Skin Girl singer would visit the motherland.
However, it should be noted that she did perform in South Africa in 2018 at the Global Citizen Festival, where she shared the stage with her husband Jay Z.
It may finally be Africa’s time, according to a source who told Metro.co.uk that Beyonce is considering bringing Renaissance to the continent, specifically Ghana.
The insider explained that, given some of the lyrics on the Renaissance album, the shows in Europe and North America will contain “mildly explicit” material and that there are currently discussions to see if a more family-friendly version of her show can be brought to Ghana.
‘Live Nation is eager for all of its acts to perform in new markets and would like Bey to spearhead it if they can find the right venue and on-the-ground partners,’ they added. She is collaborating with Ay Hollywood on choreography and has spent the last year producing the show’s live arrangements.’
Ay Hollywood has previously worked on choreography with Beyonce, as well as Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Megan Thee Stallion, and Ciara, so expect the tour to be nothing short of epic.
According to the source, she is expected to earn in excess of $500 million (£406 million), which makes Live Nation particularly happy.
