'America Has A Problem,' but Valley concert-goers don't: What to know before Beyoncé's concert at State Farm Stadium

The Grammy-award winning artist is visiting the Valley on her Renaissance World Tour, her first solo tour in over six years.


Beyoncé is bringing ‘Summer Renaissance’ to Glendale.  

The artist has the most Grammy nominations in history and the most Grammy wins of all time for any singer. And she'll be in the Valley on Thursday night. Here’s everything you need to know:  

Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance World Tour’ 

  • When: 8 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 24 
  • Where: State Farm Stadium, 1 Cardinals Drive, Glendale
  • Parking: Lot opens at 4:30 p.m. and costs $25 per vehicle when purchased online at SeatGeek.com or $30 per vehicle at the lot
  • Doors open: 5:30 p.m.
  • Tickets 

Get there early

We're expecting heavy traffic in the area as fans swarm the stadium. Drivers should give themselves extra time to make the trip, and try to get there early. The stadium parking lot opens at 4:30 p.m., and the doors open at 5:30 p.m.

After the concert, be prepared for heavier freeway traffic near the Loop 101 and I-10 in the West Valley as fans leave the stadium.
