Beyhive, let's get in formation. Beyoncé is coming home.

Driving the news: Queen Bey announced her Renaissance World Tour on Wednesday with a stop at NRG Stadium on Sept. 23.

  • This will be Beyoncé's first solo tour since the 2016 Formation World Tour.

What we know: Tickets are not on sale yet. The tour's website currently tells fans to register for specific shows through Ticketmaster (similar to the process Taylor Swift fans know all too well).

  • On Ticketmaster's website, fans can register as "Verified Fans" based on their city of choice. Cities are broken up into three groups.
  • Ticketmaster said that after fans register, it will confirm the verification request "belongs to an individual — not a bot — and that it hasn't been tied to irregular behaviors" like buying a ticket to simply resell it.
  • If demand is too high, the ticketing company will use a "lottery-style process" to determine which fans will receive an access code to potentially buy seats and which will be put on a waitlist.
  • More details about the verification process are available on Ticketmaster's website.

The bottom line: Let's hope Ticketmaster doesn't break our soul.
