Beyoncé Gifted Renaissance Tour Tickets

Beyoncé‘s Renaissance tour was one of the most in-demand live shows of 2023, bringing in millions of attendees including more than a few star-studded guests. In August, Vice President Kamala Harris attended the singer’s first of two nights in Maryland, and according to annual financial disclosure report, her tickets were on the house — not the White House, but Beyoncé’s House of Renaissance.

Harris brought her husband Doug Emhoff along as her plus one to the show, for which their tickets were valued at $1,655.92. “Thanks for a fun date night, @Beyonce,” the VP wrote on Instagram and X (formerly Twitter) the next day.

According to NBC News, Harris and Emhoff reported income of $117,000 in royalties and returns on cash and retirement accounts. They also have have financial holdings of at least $2.89 million. Like President Joe Biden, the Vice President didn’t report any conflicts of interest in the annual financial report.

And the Renaissance tour wasn’t even the most high-value entertainment outing gifted to Harris last year. The report also revealed that she attended Florida A&M’s game against her alma mater Howard University during the HBCU Celebration Bowl. Her tickets for the football game were valued at $1,890.

Howard University ultimately lost the game — which Beyoncé could never relate to. Other guests at the Renaissance tour included Lizzo, Katy Perry, Chris Rock, Winnie Harlow, Natalia Bryant, Zendaya, Tom Holland, Toshe Phillips, Keke Palmer, Kerry Washington, Meghan Markle, and more. During the run, Beyoncé was joined on stage by special guests Kendrick Lamar, Megan Thee Stallion, and Diana Ross.

The tour setlist had its highlights, but Harris’ standout was “Break My Soul.” A few months after the show, she told People: “I just love that song. I play it all the time. I think it’s one of the anthems for women . . . when [Beyoncé says] ‘you,’ you could be life, you could be a person, you could be a situation. You will not break my soul. I can endure.”
