Beyoncé begins Renaissance World Tour in Sweden

Beyoncé kicked off her The Renaissance World Tour at the Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, on Wednesday, marking her first solo concert outing in seven years.

Beyoncé performed 36 tracks for nearly three hours, including various songs from her seventh studio album Renaissance, such as “Alien Superstar,” “Cuff It,” “Pure/Honey” and “Plastic Off the Sofa,” during the sold-out show.

The concert’s set list also featured numerous hits that showcased Beyoncé’s decades-long career, including “Crazy in Love,” “Partition” and “Love on Top.”

Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy, 11, were also in attendance to show their support during the concert, which is produced by Parkwood Entertainment and promoted by Live Nation.

The Stockholm show is the first of 56 shows for the Renaissance World Tour and is part of the European leg that will make stops in Belgium, England, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland, before the North American leg of the tour kicks off on July 8 in Toronto, later ending in New Orleans on Sept. 27.
