Beyoncé Invades the Stage at European Concert Kickoff [Video]

Beyoncé

Beyoncé warmed up for her Glastonbury gig with a concert at Palais Nikaïa in Nice, France, in support of her upcoming album 4. Storming the stage in a pink fringe dress to the tune of “Crazy in Love,” the pop crusader and her band delivered a rousing set of material from her catalogue including “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It),” “Irreplaceable,” and “Baby Boy.”

She also performed new material for the first time (“Best Thing I Never Had,” “End of Time”) and thrilled with covers of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones,” and Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire,” throwing in a medley of Destiny’s Child hits and closing with “Halo.”

Check out some of the fan-filmed footage below.

    @Aaliyah, This is A Promo Tour and it sold out…..twitpic.com/5esf1s….
    Brit Brat needs props and all these costume changes while Bey rocked the same pink dress thru out her show…

    Aaliyah Reply:

    @Aaliyah, you said it yourself it’s a promo tour that’s why she didn’t change. But I’m talking about her next tour, Femme Fatale will definitely gross more than bey’s.

    gswagg Reply:

    @Aaliyah,honestly britney will sell more because of her fan base (white ppl) not for nothing but beyonce is a black women who has soared which is very hard for blacks to do so whether brit sells good for her but she never had it hard she was apart of the disney kids..

    maya Reply:

    @Aaliyah, You’re so far up Britney’s ass that you come off delusional. She talentless & lost her “it” factor. Stay mad!

    Aaliyah Reply:

    @maya, Talentless? She can dance, play the piano, write songs, sing (not the best singer but she’s versatile). @gswagg I know Bey worked hard for everything that’s why I support her also.

    Teya Reply:

    @Aaliyah, yes its true the Circus tour grossed more than the I Am Tour. But Beyonce will always be a better performer than Brits. You cannot disagree with that!

  39. Alex!

    everyone is saying this album is going to flop. they must not have heard the songs that leaked. . . this album is autotune and popcandy free.. she’s almost gone back to Dangerously in Love area with a funk twist. I this the critics will love her album…and her mature fans will like it. the kids won’t understand it. . . she’s grown from single ladies.
    I’m still not sure WHY she even recored RTW, it does NOT fairly represent the album!

    Teya Reply:

    @Alex!, i agree. This is her best album to date. The ones that are saying the songs are crap are the younger fans who prefer europop songs about sex and partying. Beyonce has grown as an artist and her vocals are getting better and better.
