Remaining tickets for Beyoncé’s huge Edinburgh concert go on sale to the public on Tuesday morning.
The 41-year-old superstar will perform at Murrayfield Stadium on May 20 as part of a world tour for her critically acclaimed seventh album Renaissance.
Tens of thousands of fans are set to scramble in a last-ditch bid for tickets from Ticketmaster or Live Nation at 10am.
Pre-sale batches for the tour’s UK shows sold out in minutes and O2 was forced to apologise to customers after its site repeatedly crashed.
It’s the Destiny’s Child star’s first solo tour in seven years, although she made an appearance at Hampden with husband Jay Z for their On The Run tour in 2018.
Ticket sales so far?
Thousands of fans frantically joined the O2 pre-sale last Thursday in a bid to secure an early bird ticket – but many missed out due to overwhelming demand.
The next day, Live Nation and venue pre-sales got underway.
Those who are part of Beyoncé’s BeyHive fan group had another pre-sale opportunity on Monday.
Tickets for the much-anticipated event ranged from £58 for reserved seating to an eye-watering £2,392 for front row VIP on the Ticketmaster website.
Edinburgh hotel prices soar
Hotel room prices in Edinburgh have rocketed on the day of the concert – May 20.
A double room with sofa bed at the Holiday Inn on the Royal Mile soared to more than £760 for one night, compared to £211 for the same room on Saturday the week before.
The price of a double room at the hub by Premier Inn at Haymarket on May 20 would set visitors back £277 compared to £192 the previous Saturday.
Beyoncé makes Grammys history
The singer became the most decorated Grammy artist of all time with 32 awards at Sunday night’s ceremony.
This took her one higher than the previous record, held by Hungarian-British conductor Georg Solti, who died in 1997.
“I’m trying not to be too emotional, I’m trying to just receive this night,” Beyonce said after taking to the stage.
She thanked her husband Jay-Z, their children, God and her uncle Jonny, who introduced her to queer dance music, saying he “is not here but he is here in spirit”.
In reference to her latest album, which draws on the history of LGBTQ culture, she added: I’d like to thank the queer community – you invented the genre.”
