— 2Cool2Blog (@2Cool2Blog) November 18, 2023 The New York Post cited sources saying Dolan has been talking with Beyoncé’s team about the record-breaking 32-time Grammy Award-winning artist taking up residency as soon as mid-February 2024.
Fueling the reports are sources stating Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z and mother/manager Tina Knowles have separately toured Dolan’s $2.3bn billion Vegas Strip arena.
Media sources have widely reported a figure of $10m as the price for Beyoncé’s signature, with Smith chiding the New York Knicks and New York Rangers owner that the pop icon was worth double, and to “stop being so damn cheap.”
X all atwitter X is buzzing about the news, compounded by Beyoncé’s schedule being free for 2024 and confirmed by the singer’s official tour website stating: “we don’t know when she will be hitting the road for more shows.”
Beyoncé fans are beside themselves with the news
U2’s “mind-bending” run at the Sphere, which kicked off in October to rave reviews, ends on February 18. X users and Beyoncé fans are beside themselves with the news, with many stating a tongue-in-cheek love for the Nevada desert, and that they are planning to move to Vegas.
SouthSideSuperStar posted “I’m ready to sell my truck,” while Jellz stated: “Beyoncé cannot keep getting away with making spend my money on her like this *looks up flights to Vegas 🙃*.”
X user @TLNTR posted a meme entitled “No Christmas for my family:”
Mrs. Gina C posted about opening a new savings account in the hope of Beyoncé coming to Vegas:
Husband: did you open another savings account?
Husband: For what?
Me: The queen might be coming to Vegas and when she does i’m going to be ready bounce like a NBA basket ball.
Husband: 😳#beyonce pic.twitter.com/4364N0TwF4
— Mrs. Gina C (@MrsGinaC) November 16, 2023 Vegas holds its breath The X account for PerezHilton.com simply posted “Las Vegas needs Beyoncé!!! This needs to happen!”
If Beyoncé comes to Vegas, she could dethrone British pop superstar Adele, who extended her lucrative residency at Caesars Palace with 32 new dates starting January 2024. In April, reports Adele was going to extend her Caesars residency came with the rider that it would make her one of the highest paid performers in Las Vegas history.
It remains to be seen what impact the former Destiny’s Child singer will have on Sin City should she take up Sphere residency. According to the NY Post, Beyoncé’s “spokeswoman did not return calls or e-mails.”
