It takes a village to bring Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour home to New Orleans

It takes a village to bring Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour home to New Orleans

The superstar has drawn much inspiration from the city’s bounce music and has spent lots of time in the Superdome

To understand what is required to stage a production as immense as Beyoncé’s 2023 Renaissance World Tour,

go to her website’s home page. Click on the “tour” tab, then click “credits.”

At the top of the page, Beyoncé receives top billing as “director, executive producer and creative direction.” She is, without question, the guiding creative force behind the whole operation.

But she can’t do it alone.

Hundreds of people are credited with working on the tour itself or for Beyoncé’s management/production company, Parkwood Entertainment.

Local fans will get to see and hear their handiwork when the Renaissance World Tour arrives at the Caesars Superdome on Wednesday, Sept. 27, following Beyoncé’s two hometown concerts at Houston’s NRG Stadium this weekend.

Her Superdome stop was initially slated to be the 2023 tour’s finale, after 56 performances across Europe and North America. That made sense, given her long association with both New Orleans and the Dome.

But a show at Kansas City’s GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium that was originally set for Sept. 18 was rescheduled to Oct. 1. So New Orleans is now the second-to-last date.

Whatever the seating capacity is for Wednesday’s show — probably just north of 50,000 — the Dome will be full. At press time, only resale tickets were available on Ticketmaster, starting at around $270 plus fees.

The Renaissance World Tour 2023 has posted eye-popping numbers at every stop, often grossing $10 million or more per night. But a show as extravagant as this is also extremely expensive to design, build and transport.
