Beyoncé Kicks Off Her “Renaissance” Tour: Watch

Beyoncé is one of the biggest artists on the planet. Her fanbase, known as the Beyhive, is particularly passionate and protective of her, readily defending her against negative comments on social media. They go to bat for her to the point that Beyoncé rarely has to defend herself at all. Regardless, she is one of the most critically lauded artists in the music industry. When an artist reaches the heights that she has, there is little hate to be seen because even haters can respect your talent and drive.

Today, the iconic artist began her "Renaissance" tour in Stockholm, Sweeden. It is a significant moment for Beyoncé as she hasn't toured since her joint tour with her husband Jay-Z in 2018. Rabid Beyhive members were waiting with bated breath for the setlist. Luckily for them, they got an early look at it due to a video of the tour book being uploaded. In the book, amongst various promo photos, there is a scan of what looked to be an early setlist. Some songs are circled, some have stars next to them, and some are crossed out. This led fans to believe it wasn't the final setlist, but that it was real. It looks like the wait is finally over, however, as footage from the first night of the tour just emerged on Instagram.

Beyoncé Heats Up The Stage In New Footage

In the new footage uploaded to The Shade Room Instagram account above, Beyoncé heats up the stage for the first night of her tour. The singer looks trim, young, and energetic. As with every performance, she owns the stage every second that she's on it. Queen B rocks several different fits in the clips uploaded to social media. In one video, she has a sparkling skin-toned dress on with long, silky black opera gloves. In another, she wears a silver one-piece, reminiscent of her "Single Ladies" days. The stage production looks huge, as well, showing just how much effort was put into this tour.

Since the first night of the tour has now concluded, the Beyhive can rest easy knowing that Beyoncé performed all of her biggest hits. The setlist is incredibly long, coming in at 36 songs. It includes classics like "Dangerously In Love," "Diva," and "Run The World (Girls)." It also includes newer hits from Beyoncé's most recent albums, like "Alien Superstar" and "Formation."
