Beyoncé fan uses ‘The Last of Us’ to scope out concert seat views

Yes, The Last of Us is known for being a critically acclaimed video game franchise and successful HBO series starring everyone’s daddy crush Pedro Pascal. But its newest contribution to society is offering Seattle-based Beyoncé fans the option to scope out concert views.

Beyoncé is set to go on her Renaissance World Tour, which includes 40 performances around the globe — with one taking place at Lumen Field in Seattle. The stadium happens to be the inspiration for a major location in The Last of Us Part II video game, called in the game the WLF Stadium Base.

A Reddit user in 2020 even compared a screenshot of the WLF Stadium Base and a photo of Lumen Field to show off how similar the two structures are.

Ultimately, in the game, the location is abandoned and desolate but, as Collider wrote in 2021, “you can still see the bones of the stadium.”

Apparently there’s an overlap in fanbase between Beyoncé and The Last of Us — jokingly categorized by one TikTok user as “Beyhive gamer TikTok” — because one TikToker showed off their brilliant idea to use the character Abby Anderson in The Last of Us Part II to “scope out my seats for the renaissance tour.”

Commenters loved the dedication, and within three days of posting, the video has since racked up hundreds of thousands of views.

“Renaissance was the cure it’s true the fireflies told me,” one commenter joked, referencing the video game’s plot.

“Screaming,” someone replied. “We thought Ellie was the cure but it was Blue.”

“THIS is why I love tik tok,” another said.
