It's the news that Beyonce fans all over the world have been waiting for - the superstar is taking her latest album 'Renaissance' on the road.

The Beyhive was buzzing with rumours of a big announcement on Wednesday, and sure enough it came in the form of an Instagram post by the Queen herself:

It was followed swiftly by the finer details of the tour, which kicks off in Stockholm on May 10th, followed by a string of mainland European dates before heading to the UK for gigs in Cardiff, Edinburgh, Sunderland and London.

However - like Coldplay in recent years, and Madonna in recent weeks - she is another major touring act who has skipped over Ireland, meaning that Irish fans will have to travel to see their idol perform.

The last time that she played Irish shores was a date at Croke Park in 2016.

A petition on has even been launched in a bid to sway her mind.
