Tottenham Hotspur are holding talks with Haringey Council over obtaining a special licence to hold the additional sold-out Beyoncé concert for which the club have already cashed in on.

Telegraph Sport understands that Tottenham have a licence to stage six musical events a year at the club’s £1 billion stadium, but the extra date, announced by Beyoncé on Feb 7, means they are due to host seven concerts in 2023.

Beyoncé’s extra date means the American singer will play five dates across May and June at the Tottenham stadium, with general admission tickets sold out and remaining premium packages costing over £350 per person.

Other than Beyoncé, Tottenham are due to host the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Wizkid in July this year. General admission tickets for the Red Hot Chili Peppers are still on sale from £65, while Wizkid tickets can be bought for £60.

Tottenham declined to comment on the subject, while Telegraph Sport also made contact with Haringey Council.

According to documents seen by Telegraph Sport, Spurs are licensed to hold 16 non-football events at the club’s stadium a year, a maximum of six of which can be musical concerts.

The fact Tottenham went ahead with Beyoncé’s extra date and sold expensive tickets for it may not have gone down well with members of the council, with a meeting now believed to be scheduled over obtaining an extra licence.

In 2014, Tottenham’s North London rivals Arsenal lost a High Court challenge over the number of concerts they can hold at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal had applied to double the number of music concerts held at the stadium from three to six, arguing a “clear error” had been made in the decision process, but the case was rejected.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is determined to maximise the earning potential of his club’s stadium and this week announced a 15-year partnership with Formula 1 to house the world’s first in-stadium electric karting facility.
