After months of build-up, Beyonce finally kicked off her Renaissance World Tour and it’s safe to say fans were left speechless.
Before the Drunk In Love hitmaker, 41, even sang a note, Forbes tipped the upcoming shows to earn the singer a cool two billion dollars (£1.6bn).
And judging by the first show in Stockholm, Sweden, the outlandish claim doesn’t seem that far-fetched.
Mrs. Carter brought the fire at Stockholm’s Friends Arena and opened the show with Dangerously In Love. Little was known about who will be joining her on tour as she has kept her cards extremely close to her chest, but the triple threat rocked her three-hour special on her own.
She also performed songs from her Renaissance album and included several nods to the LGBTQ+ community, with a huge rainbow flag used as her backdrop.
The superstar beamed from ear to ear as she made her way onto the stage and grabbed the microphone and made her glorious return to the stage.
Several fans treated the rest of us for what we can expect in her upcoming shows and we can speak for everyone when we say, you’re not ready.
‘Beyoncé dressed up as the QUEEN BEE asking “where is my beehive?” ICONIC!’ one person enthused.
‘Beyonce starting the Renaissance World Tour with a literal vocal showcase since y’all forgot what that throat can do,’ another added.
A third fan declared: ‘Beyonce mixed Alien Superstar with Sweetdreams. Added some head voice notes to the end and gave us a 3 second NASTY vogue catwalk. When she shows up for work, she shows the f**k up!’
After tonight, the Dreamgirls actress will continue making stops throughout Europe in cities such as Cardiff, Edinburgh, Sunderland, Paris, London, Marseille, Amsterdam and Warsaw, to name but a few.
Beyonce will be making her mark with BeyGOOD – the initiative she formed in 2013 – once again. In various cities throughout the tour, the organization will be supporting entrepreneurs through Black Parade Route luncheons and celebrating small business owners.
As well as this, 1,000 small businesses will be supported with a commitment pledged of $1million.
BeyGOOD will also support students through scholarship funds that will be given to colleges and universities in 10 different cities along the tour, with each school given $100,000 for the recipients – totaling $1million.
Beyonce dropped Renaissance last year to rave reviews, garnering countless award nominations and rumors of tours, performances and more.
