Are you a die-hard Beyoncé fan? Well, you’re not alone. The BeyHive is buzzing around the crowdfunding website, GoFundMe, with public pleas for money to help them secure tickets for Beyoncé’s upcoming “Renaissance” tour.
The problem is, even if they raise the money, that doesn’t guarantee them a ticket. Just ask Swifties about the presale of Taylor Swift’s “Eras” tour. But that’s not stopping fans from trying. Some of their pleas are pretty funny, like one fan who wrote, “This is the only life experience I care about living before I die. I will get those front row tickets either way but this way is safer than selling my kidney on the black market.”
Some fans have managed to raise a few hundred bucks, while others have raised next to nothing. Pre-sale in the UK has begun and fans say the supply nowhere meets the demand. One fan tweeted, “First the O2 Priority app was down. Now I’ve waited in an O2 Priority queue on @Ticketmaster website behind 200,000 people and it still won’t let me access Beyoncé tickets. Waste of time.”
Tickets go on sale in the U.S. next week and the BeyHive is bracing themselves for the inevitable. Beyoncé fans are certainly dedicated and it’s no surprise that they’ll do whatever it takes to get their hands on a ticket for her tour.
