According to Variety, there is speculation she may even perform at the ceremony, possibly alongside her husband and fellow superstar Jay-Z, who the entertainment magazine reports will take the stage with rapper and producer DJ Khaled.
The “Renaissance World Tour” will kick off in Stockholm on May 10, travelling across the continent until the end of June. It will then resume in Toronto in July before wrapping in New Orleans in September.
Beyonce released the chart-topping and critically-acclaimed “Renaissance”, her seventh studio album, at the end of July. The record, inspired by Black and queer dance music culture and pioneers, is in the running for the coveted album of the year prize at this year’s Grammy Awards, which take place on Sunday.
Beyonce’s last studio tour was in 2016 in support of her album “Lemonade”.

The release of pulsating club track collection “Renaissance,” the 41-year-old’s seventh solo album, was considered by many the biggest music industry event of 2022, further solidifying Beyonce’s spot as the uncontested queen of the dance floor.
According to the announcement, the artist’s charitable organization BeyGood will support small businesses, scholarship funds and local community initiatives in cities throughout the tour.
