If you’re a Beyoncé fan, you’ll know that getting tickets to her upcoming Renaissance World Tour is no easy feat.
Even some of her closest collaborators have had to pull strings to get in.
One such collaborator is Megan Thee Stallion, who recently admitted that she had to reach out to Beyoncé herself for tickets.
During a red carpet interview with Entertainment Tonight on her way into the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty, Stallion revealed that she managed to snag tickets…but she did so with a connection most fans don’t have. “I got ’em!” the superstar admitted, adding, “You know I called up them directly, ‘Beyoncé! Lemme get a ticket!'”
The pair worked together on the remix of Stallion’s hit single “Savage,” which shot straight to the top of the Hot 100 after Beyoncé lent her fame and talent to the tune.
The smash single went on to earn them both two rap Grammys, and they were also up for Record of the Year for the collaboration.
Later in the chat, Stallion shared that after Vanity Fair, she was headed to Bey and Jay-Z’s Oscar afterparty, and even referred to Beyoncé as her “auntie.”
But it’s not just Stallion who’s had trouble getting tickets to Beyoncé’s tour. The demand for tickets has been so high that many fans have been left disappointed.
Beyoncé teased the Renaissance World Tour back in October 2022, and it was formally announced in February 2023. The trek is set to begin in May and run through September, but with so many fans clamoring for tickets, many have been left out in the cold.
Stallion’s appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty marked her first red carpet appearance since the conclusion of the trial of musician Tory Lanez, who was accused of shooting her. That wrapped in December, and Lanez was convicted of several crimes.
When asked about new music during the interview, Stallion teased that she has a new album in the works before making a quick exit with a dismissive “F**k yall ho*s bye.”
Despite the challenges of getting tickets to Beyoncé’s tour and the ongoing pandemic, fans are eager to see her live. Her recent album, Renaissance, won several Grammy awards and has been highly praised by critics and fans alike.
