Beyoncé’s Renaissance Tour is all about royalty and great art, and now the superstar is giving credit where credit is due.
Beyoncé updated the ‘tour’ section of her official website with the full list of the run’s credits to show her appreciation. The list starts off with her name as the tour’s director, executive producer and creative director; and then moves on to additional creative directors Andrew Makadsi, Ed Burke and Leah Nardos Takele; executive producers Justina Omokhua and Erinn Williams; and music directors Damian Smith, Khirye Tyler and Dammo Farmer. The credit list does not end here but includes everyone from stage designers, choreographers, videographers, costume designers, band members and dancers to glam team, tour management, SFX crew members, caterers, nurses and drivers among others.
The tour kicked off with 37 of Beyoncé’s hits in Stockholm, Sweden. She delivered a three-hour rundown of Beyhive favourites, deep cuts and a much-awaited Destiny’s Child throwback. The tour will be held in London, Barcelona, Brussels, Amsterdam and Toronto among other places. In the U.S., it starts at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field and makes stops in Chicago, East Rutherford, N.J., Atlanta, Houston and more before coming to an end in New Orleans.
