Apart from downtown St. Louis streets being shut down near the expansion of the convention center, America’s Center. Meanwhile, Mega-pop star Beyonce, has a shut down of her own, as her fans from all over the country camp out at the infamous The Dome,waiting to stampede into the venue.
A local media team took pictures of the brave fans, as they camped out in the balmy Midwestern heat. One fan from Kansas City said she wasn’t waiting until October 1st, she wanted to see Beyonce in St. Louis tonight.
According to Fox 2 St. Louis:
The ‘queen bee’ brings her ‘Renaissance’ world tour to St. Louis Monday night. Beyonce will be at The Dome at America’s Center Monday at 8:00 p.m.
This is her first solo concert tour since 2016, with more than 50 shows. There’s no opening act.
She’ll be singing songs from her latest album, ‘Renaissance,’ along with many of her other hits. The show runs about two and a half hours.
I am not a big Beyonce’s fan, but I do like most of her songs.
My top 10 favorite songs:
- Me, Myself & I
- Say My Name
- Bills Bills Bills
- Single Women
- Cuff it
- Love on Top
- Drunk in Love
So, there is still time to get down to the fun.

A quick note from Metro-Transit:
Are you ready for the ultimate Beyoncé concert experience? Well, be prepared for traffic jams and expensive parking fees Monday night (August 21) when the Queen Bey brings her Renaissance World Tour to St. Louis. You can avoid both sitting in traffic and finding parking taking MetroLink to the concert. The Convention Center Station is conveniently located steps away from the Dome at America’s Center, which is where you need to be for all the action.
Park your car at one of our free Park-Ride lots located in Missouri and Illinois, buy your MetroLink ticket and hop on a Red or Blue Line train to downtown St. Louis. Once you’re on the train, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Hop off when you arrive at the Convention Center Station.
For your convenience, you can purchase your $5 round trip MetroLink ticket right on your phone by downloading the Transit App.
When the concert is over, head back to the Convention Center MetroLink Station. Keep on an eye on the time because the last eastbound Red Line train that goes all the way to Shiloh-Scott leaves the Convention Center at 11:51 p.m. and the last eastbound Blue Line train to Fairview Heights departs at 12:31 a.m. The last westbound Red Line train to Lambert Airport leaves the Convention Center Station at 12:01 a.m., and the last westbound Blue Line train to Shrewsbury departs at 11:50 p.m.
We’d love to see you snap a selfie to show off your MetroLink ride on the way to the show!
