Please do not be alarmed, remain calm, do not attempt to leave the dance floor Beyoncé’s 2023 Renaissance World Tour has commenced. On May 10, members of the Beyhive traveled to Stockholm, Sweden, to witness the opening night of her first tour in five years. This marks the first time the 32-time Grammy winner has performed songs from her seventh studio album Renaissance, which have not received any music videos or live performances until now.

Since her last tour in 2018, Beyoncé released the critically acclaimed Renaissance album, her first solo effort in seven years, but that’s not the only new music she’s given fans. In 2019, she put out The Lion King: The Gift, a soundtrack inspired by Disney’s live-action film in which she plays Nala, before releasing a companion film Black Is King a year later. With so many new songs to fit alongside her older hits, creating the Renaissance Tour setlist was always going to be a challenge, but Beyoncé came through with a 35-song spectacle that lasted almost three hours.

Beyoncé played the entirety of Renaissance in order, including Grammy-winning hits “Break My Soul” and “Cuff It,” and mixed in classics from all of her previous six albums throughout. But the show didn’t start that way. Instead, Bey opened the tour with a run of surprising ballads, starting with her 2003 deep cut “Dangerously In Love 2” and ending with two tracks from her 2011 album 4. If this rough setlist draft from the tour book is any indication, she may be rotating the songs in the opening act every night.

After months of creating dream setlists and imagining the camp visuals she could create, fans finally know what Beyoncé is performing on her long-awaited world tour.

Here is Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour setlist.
