Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour film on first day pre-sale ‘estimated at approximately $6 million – $7 million’
Beyonce’s upcoming Renaissance tour film has already reached between $6 and $7 million in pre-sales. Deadline reported on Tuesday.
It comes after the 42-year-old singer – whose last tour stop was in Kansas City – announced on Sunday that she will release the behind-the-scenes documentary in theaters on December 1.
The monetary estimate was calculated based on the three largest U.S. theaters: AMC, Regal and Cinemark.
The outlet noted that the official number of pre-sale wins could be higher than the average figure.
Deadline’s reporting also noted that Fandango tickets for Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour presale tickets surpassed Beyonce’s 7-to-1 on the first day of sale.
