Are you ready for a Renaissance?
We know that Beyonce fans are most definitely ready, having spent several months in heavy anticipation of Queen Bey bringing her Renaissance World Tour to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara on Aug. 30.
The R&B/pop artist — who, in basically every category imaginable, ranks among the most popular music superstars of all time — is touring in support of her seventh studio album, 2022’s “Renaissance,” which is her first full-length solo outing since 2016’s “Lemonade.”
Judging by recent performances, it looks like Beyonce is devoting a huge portion of the show to this new album. For instance, she reportedly played 14 “Renaissance” songs in her 34-selection setlist during a stop in Atlanta earlier this month. The same setlist shows that Beyonce also drew relatively strongly from 2011’s “4,” but otherwise didn’t play more than two songs off any single album.

This will be the fifth time that Beyonce has played at the Santa Clara stadium. She last performed there with husband Jay-Z with the On the Run II Tour in 2018. She also brought her solo Formation Tour to the venue for two nights in 2016. She made her Levi’s Stadium debut earlier that same year as part of the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show.
