Beyonce fans claim she was ‘injured’ on Renaissance tour amid secret surgery rumours

Share This Post


Beyonce fans have claimed the singer looked injured when she performed on the opening night of her Renaissance world tour. 

The 41-year-old superstar kicked off her 40-show tour in Stockholm on Wednesday but attendees were shocked to see she wasn’t performing many of her signature dance moves. 

While famed for her energetic performances, the mother-of-three was decidedly more restrained during her Sweden show, taking more breaks and opening the show with a series of ballads. 

Taking to Twitter fans were quick to speculate that she was recovering from an injury – four months after rumours circulated that she underwent secret foot surgery. 

The whispers started in January after the singer’s performance in Dubai at Atlantis The Royal opening.

Journalist Garrick Kennedy, who had attended the show, raved over her performance but claimed the singer was recovering from surgery. 

A now-deleted tweet read: ‘BEYLANTIS was quite the unexpected show. That voice just gets better and better. Mama was doing her good singing. Mind-blowing to see her and Blue Ivy perform together. Even more in awe to hear she did this after foot surgery.’ 

While the singer has not confirmed if she underwent any surgery, fans were quick to claim this was the reason for her muted performance. 

They tweeted: ‘Beyoncé ain’t moving her foot and leg must still be mash up’; ‘Fantastic opening night. Visually and conceptually her best tour to date. Vocals were moisturized. We gon’ continue praying for your foot, mother @beyonce, but what a great creative spectacle.’

‘beyoncé trying to dance with only half a foot’; ‘Beyoncé can take my foot I don’t need it fr’; ‘Beyoncé performing THIQUE. You can tell her she’s being extra careful with her foot (probably doc orders). With that said, kindly keep your unrealistic ideals/standards to yourself. ❤️’

‘I think Beyoncé foot still not working.. she ain’t dance yet’; ‘beyoncé trying to dance with only half a foot’; ‘I might get into a religion just to pray for Beyoncé and her foot because there’s no way. I can see her trying not to go too hard.’ 

‘how many times are we gonna have to repeat that beyonce had foot surgery and that it takes time to heal’; ‘I think Beyonce foot still not working… she ain’t dance yet’; ‘Yea… there is something  DEFINITELY wrong with Beyonce’s  foot. She isn’t moving or dancing as much as she usually does. She still performing her a** off though.’  

MailOnline has contacted Beyonce’s representatives for comment. 

Despite fans being upset by the lack of dance moves, she still wowed the critics, with The Guardian’s Malcolm Jack giving the show a five star rating, claiming ‘Queen Bey’s first solo headline tour in seven years is a lavish leap forward for live entertainment, dripping with sci-fi disco decadence, sex and Black pride.’ 

The New York Times’ Alex Marshall praised the singer for her LGBT positive performance, noting: ‘Beyoncé played into those connections throughout the show, nodding to the ballroom and vogueing culture that inspired “Renaissance” at the end of the night by giving the stage over to her dancers, who tried to outperform each other to rousing cheers.’

Yet he observed: ‘But for one of pop’s ultimate dancing queens, Beyoncé’s performance was far less physical than on past tours. She often seemed to keep her feet stationary while shaking her upper body, and appeared to favor one leg. She spent much of one song sitting atop a prop.’

The star even showed off her incredible moves as the chair sat on top of a huge vehicle for the number, while her backing dancers remained lower down on stage.

Beyonce’s Renaissance World Tour could out-earn Taylor Swift’s phenomenally successful Eras Tour by a whopping $600million, Forbes has revealed.

The Crazy In Love hitmaker, 41, began her first solo tour in seven years on Wednesday  – with the star set to do battle with 33-year-old Swift’s 52 date concert tour, which broke Ticketmaster records with single day sales of two million.

However, Queen Bey’s 41 date tour, which ends in North America in September, could gross between $275 million and $2.57 billion from tickets alone – which smashes The Eras Tour’s $1.9billion projection.

Therefore, billionaire Beyonce could make nearly $2.2 billion from the tour, $600million more than the $1.6 billion Swift could earn.

The estimates are based on projected high numbers of fans buying tickets and high average ticket prices of around $700, the publication reports. 

VIP packages for the tour range from $3757 to $5000. 

The estimate is also based on artists raking in a huge share of merchandise proceeds, leaving them with 80 per cent of tour revenues, minus expenses

Beyonce released Renaissance, her seventh studio album containing the hit track Break My Soul, in July 2022.

Beyoncé’s last solo tour was the Formation World Tour in 2016 to support her sixth album, Lemonade – in 2018 she went on the On The Run Tour with her husband, Jay-Z.

As with previous tours, Beyoncé will make her mark offstage, too, with BeyGOOD, the initiative she founded in 2013 to support people and programs around the world.

In various cities throughout the tour, BeyGOOD will support entrepreneurs through Black Parade Route luncheons, celebrating small business owners, with grant opportunities being awarded and a foray of services with global partners to promote business sustainability.

One thousand small businesses will be supported with a commitment, while BeyGOOD will also support students through scholarship funds that will be given to colleges and universities in ten different cities along the tour.

Each school will be given one hundred thousand dollars and will select the student recipients.

BeyGOOD’s total scholarship commitment during RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR will be one million dollars.

The world tour comes after Beyoncé returned to the stage with a grand performance in Dubai, marking her first concert in four years.

The musical icon was taking to the stage to celebrate the opening of new luxury hotel Atlantis The Royal, which managed to draw out a bevy of international stars.

Despite the high profile of the event, the hitmaker tried to tamp down on the publicity by banning recording and forcing attendees to lock up their phones ahead of the show.

Still, a few intrepid attendees managed to keep their cameras free and shared videos of Beyoncé belting out her hits, including Halo.

She was reportedly paid $24 million for the performance at the luxury resort for the invitation only concert, according to TMZ.

The Dubai concert is Beyonce’s first live performance since appearing at a Tribute to the late Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, in 2020.

Her rendition of Be Alive from the film King Richard at the 2022 Oscars ceremonies was taped.

Fans had been hoping that the long-awaited release of Renaissance meant a tour would be on the cards.

There’s also potential for some very special guests to join her.

In putting the album together, she enlisted the help of such artists as Drake, Pharrell Williams, The-Dream, Skrillex – and none other than her own husband Jay-Z.

The dance-heavy album features 16 tracks, including the previously released single Break My Soul, which dropped last month.

The other 15 other tracks are: I’m That Girl, Cozy, Alien Superstar, Cuff It, Energy, Church Girl, Plastic Off the Sofa, Virgo’s Groove, Move, Heated, Thique, All Up in Your Mind, America Has a Problem, Pure/Honey and Summer Renaissance.

There could be potential for more shows down the line as Beyonce previously described the album as a ‘three-act project.’

In her note, she re-stated the album’s creative process took three years and detailed working throughout the pandemic, calling it a ‘time to be still, but also a time I found to be the most creative.’

She went on to say: ‘Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world.

‘It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving.

‘My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment, a place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking.

‘A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.’

Renaissance debuted in the top spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart, marking the best-selling week from a female artist this year, and second best-selling of the year.

It sold 332,000 equivalent album units in the week through August 4, Billboard reported, citing stats from Luminate.

The album was the first from a female artist to land atop the Billboard 200 this year, as the last female artist to achieve the feat was Adele with her album 40 last December.

The record went on to top the charts for its first six weeks, from December 4, 2021 thru January 8, 2022.

Renaissance is Beyonce’s first solo studio album since her groundbreaking visual album Lemonade from 2016, in which she famously confronted the questions around her marriage to Jay-Z and his fidelity.

Beyonce and Jay-Z have been married since 2008 and have welcomed three children into the world – Blue Ivy, 10, and twins Sir and Rumi, five.

Beyonce has released four albums since 2016’s Lemonade, although none of them were solo studio efforts.

In 2018, she dropped Everything Is Love, with Jay-Z under the name the Carters.

In April of 2019, she released Homecoming, an album accompanying her 2018 headlining performance at Coachella.

That summer she followed with The Lion King: The Gift, a companion album to the Disney film that featured several new Beyonce songs (a deluxe edition of that album featuring three additional tracks was released a year later).
