Beyoncé is the latest celebrity to be named honorary mayor of Santa Clara, California. Taylor Swift was named honorary mayor of Levi’s Stadium on July 28 and 29, as part of her ‘Eras’ tour dates. For those two days, the city was also known as “Swiftie Clara.”
Earlier this year, it was reported that ‘Renaissance’ could be Beyoncé’s highest-grossing concert tour ever, surpassing the total revenue from all of her previous concerts.
Her previous tour, ‘On The Run II,’ was reported to have grossed $254 million (£203 million), whereas her current tour is expected to gross more than $2 billion (£1.6 billion).

Her performance in London earlier this year received a five-star review from NME, who called it “the summer’s glitziest tour.”
“It is refreshing to see the playfulness that pervades the entire show,” it said. “No one can deny that Beyoncé is one of music’s most talented titans, but her performance now has a lightness to it that offers something new.”
Oprah Winfrey also praised the critically acclaimed tour, calling it “the most extraordinary show” she had ever seen.
