When will Beyoncé tickets go on sale? Here’s the full ticket sales schedule – NBC Chicago
Attention Beyoncé fans: Your first chance to get tickets to see the most decorated artist in Grammys history on her upcoming “Renaissance” world tour begins Monday, as the first pre-sale of the Tour exclusive to members of Beyoncé’s fan club is about to begin.
However, many ticket hopefuls will only walk away with a spot on the waitlist.
“BeyHive Verified Fan” presale ticketing for select shows, including the two tour stops in Chicago, begins late Sunday, Ticketmaster said, as some lucky, verified BeyHive members received a “one-time access code” in their email to redeem once Monday’s presale begins. But most people didn’t get one, the ticket company says.
“If you’re on the waitlist, you’re not alone,” Ticketmaster said. “Because the demand to register was 8 times greater than the ticket inventory, most people are on the waiting list.”
“There won’t be enough tickets for everyone,” the ticketing giant’s message continued. “But you still have a chance. If you have applied for other auctions, you still have a chance of being selected based on the lottery process.”
In November, Ticketmaster’s site crashed during a pre-sale event for Taylor Swift tickets after the company said it was overwhelmed by fans and bot attacks, leaving many people waiting in queues for hours to lose tickets. This time, the ticket giant says, it’s about blowout sales rather than releasing tickets for all dates at once.
However, Ticketmaster continues to point out that “fan demand” for all dates is “far greater than the number of tickets available.
According to Ticketmaster, here is Beyoncé’s next ticket sales schedule:

What is the process for getting Beyoncé tickets?
“Beyoncé uses Verified Fan to help fans secure tickets,” Ticketmaster’s parent company Live Nation said on a site dedicated to Beyoncé’s tour. “Verified Fan requires registration to help screen buyers looking to resell tickets and create a less crowded ticket buying experience for fans.”
According to Live Nation, all hopeful ticket buyers — pre-sale or not — must register with Ticketmaster to become a “verified fan.” However, as Taylor Swift fans hoping to secure ‘The Eras Tour’ tickets may recall, “registration does not guarantee tickets,” Live Nation said, adding that demand is expected to be high. .

“We expect there will be more demand than there are tickets available and a lottery-like process will determine which registered verified fans will receive a one-time access code and which will be put on the fan list. ‘waiting,’ the site says.
Additionally, “verified fan” registration deadlines vary by city. However, these deadlines have all passed.
After signing up to become a “verified fan,” Ticketmaster must “authorize” your account, the company says. Users can then expect to receive an email from Ticketmaster confirming that their registration has been registered.
“This email is to confirm that we have received your registration information,” reads one such email obtained by NBC 5. “You will receive an email on Friday February 10th confirming the next steps.”
However, signing up for the “Verified Fan Onsale” does not guarantee access to the sale, the email states. “Since we expect demand to exceed the number of tickets available, some people who sign up will be put on the waitlist,” the email said.
And, while those with access to the sale may have a better chance of getting tickets, nothing is guaranteed, Ticketmaster points out.
“Being invited to the Verified Fans on-sale does not guarantee tickets,” the email reads. “Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.”
Finally, a day before the sale, “verified fans” can expect to receive an email indicating whether they’ve been invited to the sale or been put on a waitlist, Ticketmaster says.
