Superstars Beyonce and Jay-Z, contemporary music’s power couple, began their joint tour on Wednesday night. The married couple kicked off their summer tour entitled “On the Run” in Miami, according to People Magazine on Wednesday. The venture is expected to be a huge success for Beyonce, Jay-Z, everyone involved with the show, and fans.
The schedule states that the pair will be performing together for about three months, through September. The opening show included more than 40 songs from the couple’s individual catalogues of songs. The performers graced their first audience of the tour at Sun Life Stadium in the Sunshine State.
Previously, it was reported that the power couple of song have been working non-stop in preparation for their three-month tour which will hit many cities throughout the globe. Photos during the preparation of the show in recent days have made their way to social media. Beyonce has made images of her and her husband preparing for the concert in rehearsals available to the public. Beyonce called a group of candid pictures of them working together to put on the show “My Work.”
According to MSVN-TV News in Miami, fans arrived for the first show from near and far. The excited crowd was graced with the couple on stage at 9:30 p.m. The attendees that were interviewed by the television station gave extremely positive comments.
The performance was entrenched with hip-hop and pop, as one would expect from their past musical releases. USA Today described the concert as a tantalizing spectacle with triumphant vocals, palpable sensuality and booty-shaking anthems. The tour embraces a black and white color scheme which is described as classy. Reportedly, fans were subjected to heavy rains as they waited for hours for the doors to open to the venue. Inside the stadium, fans found wet seats and aisles, though the rain had stopped for the most part an hour-and-a-half before the show began. Fans did not seem to let the weather destroy the mood.
Beyonce, who has had a lengthy career in music, is still promoting her latest recording. Her self-titled album collection was released at the end of last year as a surprise recording release via social media and the Internet. Jay-Z had released a project last year entitled “Magna Carta Holy Grail.” The album received critical acclaim and sold very well. Last year, Jay-Z toured with Justin Timberlake.
