SOLDIER FIELD — Beyoncé announced her Renaissance World Tour Wednesday, which kicks off in May and will be making a stop in Chicago on July 22 and 23 at Soldier Field.
The tour is dedicated to her seventh studio album “Renaissance”, which debuted in July and is up for album of the year at this year’s Grammy Awards. The album received nine Grammy nominations overall.
If fans want a chance at securing their ticket, they need to act fast and complete these steps before 10:59 p.m. Thursday for a chance to see Queen B live in Chicago.
First, fans must go to beyonce.livenation.com to register via Verified Fan for all U.S. dates. Fans will register for the group with the location of the show they’d like to see.
The Chicago shows are under “Group A.” Each fan can submit a registration for each group, but not more than once. “Group A” registration is open through 10:59 p.m. Thursday.
Fans must have an account with ticketmaster.com to register. The website claims this will help “filter out buyers looking to resell tickets and create a less crowded ticket shopping experience,” officials said.
Verified Fan, operated by Ticketmaster, will use a lottery system to decide who will get an access code to buy tickets and who will be put on the waitlist.
But doesn’t this sound familiar? Cue the Taylor Swift ticket fiasco from November.
Demand for Swift’s Eras tour overwhelmed the website causing a melt down leaving many fans waiting for extended periods of time and others experiencing glitches when trying to buy tickets. Ticketmaster eventually scrapped general public sales for the tour altogether.
Fans have already taken to Twitter to warn Ticketmaster it better be ready.
“Your site better work and prepared when these Beyoncé tickets drop!” said Twitter user @AshleyKSmalls.
