Queen Bey is finally here! The long wait is almost over, and in just a few short days, Beyoncé will be performing at MetLife Stadium, so here’s everything you can expect from the RENAISSANCE world tour.
Beyoncé will be performing on July 29th and 30th. The parking lots will open at 3:00 p.m. and the gates will open at 5:30 p.m. The show’s start time will vary but can be expected to fall around approximately 8 p.m. with no opener, so be sure to arrive on time!
Concert-goers can bring clear bags that measure 12 inches by 6 inches or smaller, or handbags that measure 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches or smaller. Food of any type should be stored in a clear plastic bag, and factory-sealed bottles of water or soft drinks that are 20 ounces or smaller can be brought. Reusable water bottles are permitted but must be empty upon entry. Portable phone chargers, jackets, and cameras are also allowed.
Alcohol, glass containers, battery-operated items such as clothing, animals other than service animals and non-clear bags larger than 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches are not permitted. Read more about MetLife Stadium’s bag policy here.
Parking lots will open at 3:00 p.m., and day-of-event parking will cost $40 per car and $160 per Bus/RV. Also, expect to pay tolls on roadways such as the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway. Find directions for accessing the lots from different locations here. There will also be a dedicated rideshare zone in Lot E outside of the Verizon Gate. See here for more information.
We highly recommend considering public transportation, such as the NJ TRANSIT train or Coach USA bus service. NJ TRANSIT will operate the Meadowlands Rail Service for events with anticipated attendance above 50,000 and will deliver concert-goers directly to MetLife Stadium. Coach USA will run the 351 Meadowlands Express bus service from Port Authority to MetLife Stadium. More information on both services can be found here.
Tailgating will be allowed in the MetLife parking lots, though drones, kites and other flying objects are not allowed on the complex. Read more about MetLife Stadium’s tailgating policy here.
While the exact setlist for each show is closely guarded by Queen Bey’s team, Mrs. Carter has been playing songs from across her impressive discography throughout the tour. You can expect hits including “I’m That Girl,” “Alien Superstar,” “Formation,” “Run the World (Girls),” “Partition,” “Love on Top,” “Crazy in Love” and more.
So far, a huge number of A-listers have attended the RENAISSANCE world tour, including Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa, Frank Ocean, Priyanka Chopra-Jonas, Lizzo, Selena Gomez, Megan Thee Stallion, Pharrell Williams and more. It’s likely that more celebs will be in attendance at the MetLife shows. After all, it's New York, anything can happen!
