Following the surprise release of her brand new album last Saturday, Beyoncé kicked off her “Formation World Tour” in Miami, FL on Wednesday night (April 27) at Marlins Park.
With the whole world still caught up in all the gossip surrounding the content of the album, Queen Bey does what she always does best, and put on one hell of a special show for her Florida Bey Hive. The concert went well over 2 hours, and featured one of her longest set lists yet. Following a lively opening set by DJ Khaled, who brought out everyone from Rick Ross and Yo Gotti to Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, the superstar launched the show fittingly with the single, “Formation.”
She gave fans exactly what they wanted performing new songs such as “Sorry” and “Daddy Lessons” for the very first time live, and ran through her massive catalog of hits, spanning 6 albums. At one point Beyoncé told the crowd that “All Night” is her favorite record off the LEMONADE album, and she used her classic single “Baby Boy” to segue into the dancehall styled “Hold Up.” She paid tribute to Prince turning the large projector cube on stage to purple and playing “Purple Rain.” Beyoncé’s Destiny’s Child sister Michelle Williams was spotted in the audience, and JAY Z was seen backstage giving Khaled a pep talk.
While closing out the show with “Halo,” Bey said, “I wanna dedicate this to my beautiful husband. I love you so much.”
