What exactly Club Renaissance entail is unclear, although the fine print says Beyonce’s company, Parkwood, “invites you to experience ‘Renaissance’ in spatial audio,” so it seems at the very least it’s a high-fidelity listening session. The event is being presented by Amazon Music and Parkwood.
Tickets to Club Renaissance were made available to fans for free on Thursday, December 15. Tickets were limited to one per person with a 21+ age limit.
On Friday, fans received alerts for a website called Club Renaissance, but tickets were sold out within minutes. The event is taking place Saturday and Sunday nights starting at 9 pm. The location of the venue will be disclosed to guests before the first event on Saturday, December 17.
The website contains “consent and disclosure” information about tickets and a long disclaimer about the possibility of contracting Covid-19 during the event.
Renaissance, Beyonce’s seventh album to date, was released in July this year. In August, Beyonce held a private Club Renaissance event at the Times Square Edition hotel in New York City after the release of Renaissance. The VIP guest list included Kendrick Lamar, Donald Glover, and Chloe Bailey. Hours before the release of the album, Beyonce and country-specific branches of Sony Music also announced Club Renaissance in their respective regions.
Beyonce attended a Parisian edition of the event, which welcomed guests like Tyler the Creator, Halsey, and Doja Cat. Access to those parties was secured through a competition by respective countries’ social media accounts.
The singer is reportedly starting a supporting tour in 2023, but an announcement is yet to be made.
