Beyonce concert at Spurs’ stadium is sold out – but still doesn’t have go-ahead

Tottenham are still waiting for approval to host a Beyonce concert at their stadium despite the show already being a sell-out.

The American songstress is due to perform at Spurs' home ground in May and June once the football season has come to an end. Naturally tickets for the event have proved incredibly popular, with fans snapping them up as soon as they went on sale.

But Spurs chiefs are still yet to get the green light from Haringey Council to host an extra date, as they have already reached the quota on their licence for this year. Tottenham's state-of-the-art multi-purpose stadium is permitted to hold up to six music events every calendar year, but the extra Beyonce show will make it seven.

The former Destiny's Child singer is booked in to perform across five nights as part of her Renaissance world tour, while Red Hot Chili Peppers and Wizkid are each set to appear for one night only in July. According to The Telegraph, Tottenham are allowed to host 16 non-football events per year.

The club generates considerable revenue from hosting a range of events, including NFL, Rugby Union and boxing matches. General admission tickets to see Beyonce have all been accounted for, though some premium packages are still available, albeit at the costly sum of over £350 each.

A decision on whether Tottenham will be able to host the extra date will be determined in a scheduled upcoming meeting, with the club seeking a special licence to be granted for the occasion.

Tottenham declined to comment on the matter. Star Sport have also contacted Haringey Council for comment.

Tottenham have only recently announced a 15-year partnership with Formula One, which will include the world’s first in-stadium electric karting facility and London’s longest indoor track installed underneath Tottenham's South Stand.

Spurs co-owner Daniel Levy said of the partnership: "Since building this stadium our ambition has always been to see how far we can push the boundaries in delivering world-class experiences that will attract people from around the world all year round.

"We have been able to bring the biggest names in sport and entertainment to London N17. We are extremely excited about what this long-term partnership with F1 will bring for our global, national and local communities."
