Sunderland is gearing up to play host to one of the most famous musicians of all time as Beyoncé is set to perform at the Stadium of Light as part of her much-anticipated ‘Renaissance’ tour.

Beyoncé described her critically-acclaimed Renaissance album, which was released last July as "a place to dream and to find escape" during the pandemic. Exclaim magazine has labelled the album as "the sound of a once-in-a-generation superstar performing at her peak".
