Key Takeaways

  • Since Beyoncé announced her Renaissance Tour, searches for cities on the tour more than doubled.

It’s the moment fans have been waiting over six years for. Beyoncé has announced her latest tour across almost 50 dates touring North America and Europe this summer, and those lucky enough to get tickets are swarming to Airbnb to secure their accommodation for what is expected to be one of the most hotly anticipated music events of 2023. 

The stadium tour sees Beyoncé visit 40 cities including London, Sunderland and Cardiff in the UK, Barcelona, Marseille and Frankfurt in Europe, and Nashville, Vancouver and Kansas City across North America. In the first week of announcing her tour on February 1, searches for cities the tour is visiting jumped by approximately 120 percent1 compared to the previous week. The top 10 trending cities with the highest jump in searches, ranging from five times to over 10 times more searches than the previous week, include:

  1. Warsaw, Poland 
  2. Cardiff, Wales 
  3. Sunderland, United Kingdom 
  4. Houston, TX, United States 
  5. Marseille, France 
  6. Stockholm, Sweden 
  7. Inglewood, CA, United States 
  8. Edinburgh, Scotland 
  9. Tampa, FL, United States
  10. Frankfurt, Germany

Since its founding, Airbnb has helped cities use existing space to scale accommodations and absorb the influx of visitors around big events, all while creating important economic opportunities for Hosts and local small businesses. This includes extending those opportunities to neighborhoods outside of city centers that have not traditionally benefited from the tourism economy.
