On Saturday night, during WACO Theater‘s Wearable Art Gala 2022 singer Beyoncé apparently confirmed she will be on tour next summer by auctioning an lavish concert ticket package during the charity event.
An attendee shared photos that seem to show the package description which listed the following: “Valued at a total of $20,000, United [Airlines] x WACO offers you a chance to see Beyoncé on her ‘Renaissance’ tour starting in the summer of 2023 at any of United’s national and international destinations around the world. This prize is complete with 2 first-class international United Airlines Polaris tickets to select cities with 3-night hotel accommodations at a Marriott property. And, to one of the most sought-after musical performances of all time, 2 concert tickets to Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ 2023 tour with a guided backstage tour with Miss Tina [Beyoncé’s mother]!”
There is a variation of reports online, however, it was said that the winning bidder paid between $45,000 and $50,000 for the prize.
The Grammy Awards winning singer has not officially announce or commented on the actual tour. Beyoncé’s album “Renaissance” was released in July 2022, however details relating to the project have remained a secret.
Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and their daughter Blue Ivy were in attendance at the inaugural event in Santa Monica, hosted by the singer’s mom and stepfather, who are the founders and co-artistic directors, Tina Knowles-Lawson and Richard Lawson. Also in attendance were various actors and musicians such as honoree Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Rowland, Quinta Brunson and Michelle Williams and the ceremony was sponsored by Amazon Music and Shea Moisture.
The gala was created by the Lawsons in 2017 and served as a fundraiser to support WACO’s artistic and mentorship programs and also highlighting the organization’s shared mission for diversity and inclusion. The event was hosted by Keke Palmer and featured a special performance by Andra Day as well as a musical tribute by Chloe and Halle Bailey.
