Beyonce and Jay Z kicked off their On The Run tour on Wednesday night and it was nothing short of a good time, not that we expected anything less.
Just months after Beyonce wrapped up her Mrs. Carter World Tour, the singer joined forces with her rapper husband for the second biggest tour of all time. Last night, the duo hit the stage at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium for the start of their 16-city summer trek. .According to reports, the evening’s rainy weather didn’t stop fans from rooting on the power couple.
Around 9:30 p.m, the show started. “I need some gangster sh*t,” Beyonce whispered over a black and white video displayed on massive screen. That’s when the couple went into their 2003 hit, “03 Bonnie and Clyde.” Beyonce stunned in a fishnet mask while Jay Z sported a pair of sunglasses and gold chain.
During the Carter’s performance of “Forever Young” and “Halo,” the couple shared with fans never before seen video from their secret, April 4, 2008 nuptials and clips of the two getting their matching #4 wedding finger tattoos, which symbolizes their marriage and birthday dates. The couple also revealed home videos of their 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
“There were videos of Blue in the pool with her mom, walking holding hands with her parents, Jay Z kissing Blue,” an audience member told Us Weekly. “It was a sweet moment — Jay Z and Beyoncé were both facing the screen watching the Blue videos while they sang ‘Halo.’ It was like they were singing the song to their baby girl. The two of them were beaming, smiling watching their little girl on the screen.”
The couple performed some of their top hits, including “Drunk in Love,” “Crazy In Love,” “Part II (On the Run)” and Jay Z’s “N*ggas in Paris” and “Tom Ford.” From incredible costume changes to a dynamic chemistry on stage, it sounds like the couple proved why they are a force to be reckoned with.
