Beyoncé could be set to perform an incredible 40 song setlist in Cardiff
Beyoncé is performing in the UK on a world tour for the first time since 2016
Beyoncé kicks off the UK leg of her world tour tonight (17 May), meaning - as well as a wave of excitement to see Queen B - a number of road closures and travel disruptions are expected to take place in and around Cardiff.
The Renaissance world tour is Beyoncé’s first solo tour in seven years and fans are expected to travel to the Welsh capital city from a variety of different locations including the United States, Lebanon and Australia. The American singer is one of the most successful performers of her generation and she has released a number of big hits in her illustrious career including Crazy In Love, Halo and Break My Soul.
Beyoncé has attracted a sell-out crowd of over 60,000 fans at the Principality Stadium. But who is her support act on the world tour and what song is she likely to perform? Here's the lowdown on everything you need to know ahead of Beyonce’s tour including set list and road closure details.
Beyoncé returns to Cardiff on Wednesday 17 May and she is performing at the Principality Stadium. It is the singer's second appearance in the Welsh capital and she previously joined husband Jay-Z on the On the Run II tour in 2018. The concert follows appearances in major European cities including the Swedish capital Stockholm and Belgium's capital Brussels.
Beyoncé’s Cardiff concert gets underway at 7pm (UK time) and it runs until 10.30pm. The Run The World singer has chosen to not have a support act - meaning fans will be treated to a three hour setlist of Beyoncé’s greatest hits.
Cardiff city bosses have advised concert-goers and commuters to plan their journey in advance and to arrive early at the venue. There will be a full Cardiff city centre road closure in place from 4pm until midnight on Wednesday, May 17 to ensure concert goers can get to and from the venue safely.
