This week it’s been announced that Beyoncé will perform at the Stadium of Light in May as part of her much-anticipated Renaissance World Tour.
She’s set to be a huge draw to the city when she performs on May 23, 2023.
Beyoncé joins Pink this year, who was the first female to ever headline the stadium back in 2010. Pink will take to the stage again for two nights on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, 2023.
Here’s a look back at some of the household names who’ve performed at the home of the Black Cats over the years.
