Spurs still asking council for permission to host Beyonce gig at Tottenham Stadium despite already selling out concert | The Sun
TOTTENHAM are asking Haringey Council for a special licence to hold an already sold-out Beyonce concert.
Spurs' state of the art stadium hosts a range of big sports events alongside Premier League football.
The £1billion stadium has played host to NFL games and boxing matches.
Tottenham also have a licence to stage six musical events a year.
But according to The Telegraph, a seventh musical event has been penciled in to house an already sold-out Beyonce concert.
Beyonce’s extra date means the American singer will play five dates across May and June at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And the news of a seventh may not have gone down well with members of Haringey Council.
A meeting has been scheduled over obtaining an extra licence.
