Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour hits B.C. Place stadium on Monday, Sept. 11, and according to a social media post from the ferry company, a Hullo ferry will depart Vancouver at 11:30 p.m. to shuttle concert-goers back to Nanaimo after the show.

It is the first time a special sailing will be offered to accommodate a night-time event in Vancouver.
