Update May 21, 2024: Could this *finally* be the moment all Aussie Beyoncé fans have been waiting for? Ever since our queen and saviour dropped her country album, Cowboy Carter, on March 29, there's been a renewed interest in her tour plans. And now, rumours are swirling that suggest Queen B could bring her concert experience to the MCG – which would see her join the ranks of Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift who have both recently played sold-out shows at the iconic stadium. With the AFL Grand Final taking place on the last Saturday in September and the cricket season firing up in early November, it leaves October wide open for a potential gig (excuse us while we go clear our schedules). For now, it's all part of the whisper network, but you know we'll bring you the latest info as it comes to light. 

Please, Bey, don’t break our souls. 

What are the next dates on Beyoncé's World Tour?

The superstar wrapped her Renaissance World Tour in Kansas City, Missouri, on October 1, 2023. There don't appear to be any other dates on the Renaissance World Tour site, but the word "World" has always hinted at the fact that she'll be hitting up other continents sooner or later. 

When is Beyoncé touring Australia?

This is everything we know: Beyoncé has not yet announced dates for Australia, however tour promoters have previously hinted there will be Australian dates, with shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, as well as New Zealand. The star has teased at a potential Sydney tour date, with fans on social media capturing a Sydney countdown clock in her staging for 'America Has A Problem'. 

When is Beyoncé announcing Australian tour dates?

In classic Bey-style, her Renaissance World Tour was announced via a single glittering Instagram post (that’s all you need, really, when you’re her), with this world tour being her first in seven years. Queen B does have a long legacy of dropping spontaneous and life-shattering surprises on us all – so it’s very possible that all of us in the Southern Hemisphere shouldn’t give up hope. 

How can I get tickets to Beyoncé in Australia and Melbourne?

As usual, if/when tickets do go on sale, they should be available on Ticketek
