Beyonce World Tour
Fans have been anticipating the announcement of a tour since the Houston native hinted at possible dates during the fifth annual Wearable Art Gala. According to Vulture, during the annual gala’s raffle, “a UNIQUE experience” to see her on the Renaissance tour was offered up for auction.
The unique experience was valued at $20,000. The package included first-class plane tickets, a three-night hotel stay, two concert tickets, and a guided backstage tour from Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles.
Beyonce recently stepped foot back on the stage during a private performance in Dubai. It was the Grammy winner’s first time on stage in four years. She graced the stage in celebration of the opening of Dubai’s newest luxury resort, Atlantis The Royal.
The performance came with a $24 million payout and a surprise appearance from the artist’s oldest daughter, Blue Ivy.
