Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour will stop at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington this Thursday, and here’s some news that won’t break your soul, but it may break your pocket — tickets are still available!

Her stop in Arlington is one of three Renaissance tour performances in Texas, and fans can still secure their last-minute pass into the big show.

What to wear

Beyoncé has asked all fans to wear silver in honor of Virgo season and her birthday during the final leg of her tour.

We'll surround ourselves in a shimmering human disco ball each night.

TORONTO, ONTARIO - JULY 08: Beyoncé performs onstage during the "RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR" at Rogers Centre on July 08, 2023 in Toronto, Ontario.
Here are the details about the designers involved in creating Beyoncé's iconic tour looks.

What's this "mute challenge"? 

It's a challenge that has gone viral, and fans are taking it seriously.

The DFW Beyhive has had months to practice, and now it's time to claim her home as the ultimate “everybody on mute” challenge winner. The song “Energy” from Renaissance has the key lyrics, “Big wave in the room, the crowd gon’ move / Look around, everybody on mute,” and attendees and fans are expected to be completely silent for a few seconds. At this point in the show, not only does Beyoncé pause, but the music stops, and her background dancers freeze with a finger over their mouths. 

She’s previously crowned cities Atlanta and Washington D.C. as challenge winners. 

Beyhive members are still swarming Arlington just a day before the show, and business owners say they're anticipating large numbers of customers.

“It’s great for our bottom line,” said Bar Louie Arlington’s kitchen manager, James Frazier. “We’ll have live entertainment; we’re expecting a huge crowd to show out.”

The restaurant and bar even created ‘The Diva’ martini cocktail in honor of Queen Bey’s arrival.

“Fit for the queen herself,” said bartender Cassandra Washington.

Fans are traveling to North Texas from near and far, including one fan from Costa Rica.

“You have to come see the Queen when she’s performing,” said Luis Diego Porras.

Porras landed at DFW Airport on Wednesday, ready to take in all three of Beyonce’s Texas shows.

“I’m really excited,” he said. “This is the third time I’m seeing her, but it always feels like the first time. It’s always an amazing experience.”

Porras estimates he’ll shell out about $1,500 during his stay in Arlington.

"We are confident that millions of dollars will pour into the greater Arlington economy with the highly anticipated Beyonce concert tomorrow evening,’ said Great Arlington Chamber of Commerce spokesperson Britton Cunningham Merritt.

"Small businesses are staffing up and planning for the occasion."

The city estimates more than 70,000 people will visit Arlington for the Renaissance World Tour.

The recent Metallica concert also proved to be a success, with hotel occupancy rates in the 80-93 percentile and 161,000 visitors, according to the chamber.

Taylor Swift’s three-day concert run in Arlington boasted more than 370,000 visitors and higher hotel occupancy percentiles.
