Beyoncé is bringing the Renaissance Tour to metro Phoenix. Here's how to get tickets
Beyoncé is bringing the Renaissance Tour to State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Thursday, Aug. 24.
This is the superstar's first Valley concert since 2018, when her On the Run II Tour with Jay-Z played at State Farm Stadium.
How to get tickets to Beyonce's Renaissance World Tour
You can register now through Verified Fan at ticketmaster.com and beyonce.livenation.com for one of three presales — one for Citi card members, one for BeyHive members and a general Verified Fan presale.
Beyoncé's tour is rolling out on-sale dates in three stages in an effort to prevent the sort of ticketing meltdown that plagued the rollout of the latest Taylor Swift tour.
Phoenix is in registration group C, which is open through 9:59 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 16.

When do Beyonce tickets go on sale?
You’ll receive an email on Friday, Feb. 24, confirming the next steps. If you are verified and receive a unique access code, the Verified Fan Onsale will begin on Saturday, Feb. 25.
How the Verified Fan presale works for Beyonce tickets
Verified Fan requires registration for all presales to help filter out buyers looking to resell tickets, so more tickets get to fans who are going to hold on to tickets and attend the show.
Registration does not guarantee tickets. There will be more demand than there are tickets available. A lottery-style process will determine which registered Verified Fans receive a unique access code and which ones are put on the waitlist.
