After Taylor Swift’s tour list skipped St. Louis in favor of Chicago and Kansas City, local fans can rejoice that Beyoncé’s tour won’t require a three- to five-hour drive.

“Queen B” herself will perform at the Dome at America’s Center Monday, Aug. 21. The Downtown St. Louis venue has hosted a variety of major events, including the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for gymnastics in 2021 and a 1999 Mass celebrated by Pope John Paul II, which was “the largest indoor gathering ever held in the U.S.”

The Renaissance World Tour will also travel to Stockholm, Paris, London and more European locations, as well as Chicago, Kansas City, Nashville, Louisville and other U.S. cities.

The Chicago concert will take place July 22 and Kansas City’s is Sept. 18.

Official pricing information is not available at this time, but presale registration instructions have been released.

USA Today reported Verizon will also have a presale.

Fans who complete BeyHive Verified Fan Registration will get an email Feb. 19 with next steps, and those who receive a code can join the BeyHive presale Feb. 20.

Those who sign up for the Verified Fan Onsale Registration will receive an email Feb. 24 with next steps, Live Nation’s website says, and people who are verified and receive a unique access code can participate in the Verified Fan Onsale Feb. 25.

Not everyone who registers for a code will receive one, and some will be put on a waitlist.

Note: As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, Beyoncé’s email list page was not functioning.

Receiving a presale code does not guarantee tickets, and if the Taylor Swift presale is any indication, fans may struggle to snag them.

Beyoncé fans took to Twitter Wednesday morning to hope for the best and state their intent to do whatever it takes to get a spot at the concert.
