How to buy Beyoncé tickets

Prices range from £56 for a seated ticket to £2,400 for a VIP "on-stage" front row experience.
Three extra London dates have been added this morning due to huge demand.
Beyoncé last performed in the UK in 2018, as part of a joint tour with husband Jay-Z, and hasn't played a solo show here since the 2016 Formation World Tour.
The former Destiny's Child singer returned to the spotlight last summer with her latest album Renaissance, which topped charts worldwide.
The sprawling 16-track album features a spread of genres including driving disco, Afrobeats and house influences.
On Monday she made history by becoming the most decorated Grammy artist of all time, with 32 trophies.
"I'm trying not to be too emotional, I'm trying to just receive this night," she said after taking to the stage.
She thanked 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 album, which drew on the history of LGBTQ culture, she added: "I'd like to thank the queer community – you invented the genre."
Last month, the 41-year-old made her live comeback by performing at the launch of a luxury hotel in Dubai.
She performed hits including Crazy in Love, Naughty Girl, Halo and XO but did not debut any tracks from Renaissance.
She was joined by her 11-year-old daughter Blue Ivy for a duet of Brown Skin Girl, from 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift.
Beyoncé previously described the release as the first part of a "three-act project" recorded during the pandemic.
In a statement, she said: "Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world.
"It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving... It was a beautiful journey of exploration."
