Tina Knowles is sharing behind-the-scenes details from the “Renaissance World Tour!”
She recently appeared on a “Renaissance”-themed Halloween episode of “Sherri” with host Sherri Shepherd, where she spilled details about her daughter’s record-breaking tour.
“She told me that she wanted to have more than one stylist, and I actually hired four people,” Tina shared on “Sherri.” “It would have been impossible [with just one]. We had over 600 costumes to choose from, and so she still has maybe 150 costumes that she hasn’t… But every night, she did at least five, four to five new costumes.”
The Renaissance artist partnered with a number of Black designers for her tour costumes, including Brandon Blackwood, Ibrahim Kamara for Off White, and, of course, Beyoncé’s own Ivy Park brand.
She continued, “I look out in the audience. I’ve been to, I think, probably 40 of the 56 shows, and every night, you know, I see the most amazing costumes, and these costumes cost a fortune. I’m like, I should have hired them!” she said. “The creativity is just off the charts. It’s unbelievable.”
Fans will be able to experience Queen Bey in theaters soon for Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé — a film documenting what is now the highest-grossing tour by a female artist in history. The project will hit U.S. theaters on December 1. Beyoncé released the trailer for the film on October 1 — following the end of her final Renaissance World Tour show in Kansas City.
“When I am performing, I am nothing but free,” Beyoncé says in the trailer over a montage of images from the tour. “My goal for this tour was to create a place where everyone is free, and no one is judged.”
Pre-sales for tickets to the movie version of the concert are already available at various theater chains, including AMC, Regal, and Cinemark.
“Be careful what you ask for, ’cause I just might comply. Tickets on sale now in theaters 12.01” from her song “All Up in Your Mind,” she captioned an Instagram post about the film.
