Start saving your coins right now, because word on the street is that Beyoncé is set to hit the road for her Renaissance Tour next summer.

Beyoncé is taking her new album, “Renaissance,” on the road, multiple sources confirm to Page Six exclusively.
One insider reveals that the “Cuff It” singer, 41, is booking stadiums around the world for the summer of 2023. A second source teases that an official announcement can be expected in the coming weeks.
Beyoncé’s rep did not respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Since its release in July, “Renaissance” has been dominating streaming services — and nightclubs — but Beyoncé has uncharacteristically let the music speak for itself thus far.
The queen of surprise releases and visual albums has yet to drop a music video for any of the record’s 16 tracks — not even its chart-topping lead single, “Break My Soul.”
However, Beyoncé does have more in store for her latest era; she described “Renaissance” as the first part of a “three-act project” that she worked on throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is unclear whether the second and third acts will be additional albums or the tour and videos.
“Creating [‘Renaissance’] allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” the Grammy-winning superstar wrote on Instagram in June. “It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving.”
Beyoncé last went on tour in the summer and fall of 2018 with her husband, Jay-Z, to promote their joint album, “Everything Is Love.”
She has not hit the road as a solo act since her critically acclaimed “Formation” world tour in 2016.
If I were Beyoncé I would call it The Summer Renaissance Tour. I also hope we get the other two acts of the Renaissance era before the tour so she can incorporate all three acts into the show (the other two acts re rumored to have a rock and country music influence).
Speaking of which, what's going on with the videos? A teaser for the visuals dropped a few months ago, as well as some stills of Beyoncé all glammed up. But we haven't heard anything else since.
I'm hearing rumblings that she wasn't happy with the finished product regarding the videos and she's been doing reshoots. So when the visuals finally drop, I'll be analyzing those shots real close to see what made the final cut, and what didn't.
