Tickets for Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour in the United States already went on sale, last week. The iconic pop star added shows in Toronto, Washington D.C., Chicago, as well as L.A., and more as shows quickly sold out. In a press statement, Live Nation shared that fan demand exceeded available seats by over 800%. “It is still expected that the majority of interested fans will not be able to get tickets," they said. "Demand drastically exceeds supply.”

Fans on Twitter have been posting about the long queue lines throughout the morning. One wrote: "I’m in the queue for the 6/1 show. Unless 400k people before me turned down tickets… Beyoncé is stressing me OUT. I just wanna see the show." Another added: "Every time I decide I've given up on Beyonce tickets she adds a new date - and then there's still 150k+ people in the queue in front of me!"

The reveal of Beyoncé's U.K. tour dates comes after the "Break My Soul" singer set the record for most Grammy wins of all time.
