Beyoncé Kicks Off ‘The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’

Beyoncé

Bow down, Belgrade. Beyoncé pulled out all the stops during the kickoff to “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” in Belgrade, Serbia, on Monday. A sold-out crowd of 20,000 packed into the Kombank Arena to witness the first of 65 dates on her globe-trotting trek. There were plenty of show-stopping moments including costume changes, choreography, pyrotechnics, and hit after hit.

The 31-year-old pop icon stormed the stage in a white beaded dress to her anthem “Run the World (Girls),” marching into “End of Time” with her troop of dancers.

Queen B turned heads in a dazzling wardrobe by designers including Emilio Pucci, Dsquared2, Givenchy, and Ralph & Russo, with shoes by Stuart Weitzman. She strut across the stage in a racy gold sequined bodysuit (complete with nipples) and flew over the audience in a Swarovski-studded blue bodysuit by Vrettos Vrettakos.

She didn’t debut any new material, pulling from her past four solo albums and one Destiny’s Child song (“Survivor”). The unforgettable evening closed with Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” and “Halo.”

“Thank ya’ll for being such a beautiful audience,” said B, who was presented with the Serbian flag. “I’ll never forget my first show. I’ll never forget all of these beautiful faces. I had such a good time tonight.”

The tour will travel throughout Europe in April and May before making its way to North America on June 28.

    @OVODRAKE,

    listen, it’s obvious the reason there is not new material. That damn bey hive is buzzing so loud they can’t hear what’s going on. For anyone who has paid attention to her career, there’s been a gradual decline of her music since her first album. Had it not been for that catchy video, single ladies would have never taken off. Run the world was promoted as this “new sound” for beyonce but she comes out using Major Laser’s track. To put it simple, her songs are tanking. I do believe that I Been On and Bow Down were the singles for her new album and that they tanked, and her team is scrambling to come up with a plan B for Queen B, and until they figure it out, she’s selling you the same show you been getting for the past 8+ years.

    @RealTalk, Lady Gaga was still on her Fame Monster tour as she was beginning to Promote for Born This Way and she changed the setlist as her promotion progressed . It’s just the first night . Niggas thought she would be over after before her “4″ era , but she’s remained on top . She’s doing everything on Beyonce time . Sure the fans are to be considered , but the fans don’t put in the endless amount of time and money to make things happen .

    @RealTalk, I Been On and Bow Down are 2 seperate tracks that arent single and also were released as 2 snippets that merged into one.

    @OVODRAKE,

    Oh and also… a little fly on the wall at one of the meetings for her label regarding her “contract” stated that if this album don’t sell, she’s gonna be doing Vegas shows because the label is gonna say bye bye…. could be her decline… It happens to everyone…

    @RealTalk, Beyonce never went on a worldwide tour for 4! The Mrs Carter Show = The 4 Tour, and it Sold Out within days! Her career is far from over. New material can be expected towards the end of her tour.

    If Bow Down/I Been On were genuine singles a.) They would have been available for purchase and b.) They wouldn’t have been released as two conjoined songs.

    They were meant to create hype, and the have, so Bow Down Bitch!

    I don’t understand what problem she’s having with releasing something new. My friend who is a HUGE fan passed on tour tickets because she want’s new stuff too. We know the show will be great, but Imma need more than Crazy In Love.

    Meme Reply:

    @Jay, something isn’t right. I honestly feel the album was schedule to be out by now with the first single premiering at the Super Bowl. Who goes on a world tour before they release new music. Everything seems so backwards. She had some of the biggest promo ever this quarter, vogue Super Bowl GQ but what exactly is she promoting? They must be nervous about her material.

    @Meme, I think this is 4′s tour. And if you see the tour dates you’ll see there’s a huge gap in June. So I’m guessing a new single should be out in May or June. The album would probably be released in June

    Still reigns! Queen muthaf**kin Bey! I think she will switch the setlist up when she kicks off the US leg starting June 28. By then, the new singles should be popping so she will add some in and take some old ones out.

    She’ll probably perform new music during her tour when her album drops. Rihanna did it to for her loud tour. She played nothing but music from Loud and past albums but when talk that talk dropped, she started performing music from the album.

    Like seriously can they make an annoucment about this album already. Something isn’t right. Was there a delay?

    @Meme, I remember the Dream saying that we were going to get two singles before the superbowl. And billboard said that Grown Woman was supposed to be released last Monday. What the hell is going on?

    [Reply]

    Meme Reply:

    @Portuguese Luv, wow it all make sense now. The dream did say 2 new songs referring to to bow down and been on. Been on is the most epic production ever but the content was lacking. It’s just sad they booked all this promo and wasted it. I’m scared for the ms carter era.

    Why put out new music, when she can make money off her catalog, with a new show. Then make a new album, the tour again. This is the business.

    Give us RUNWAY OR GROWN WOMAN!

    T Reply:

    @lol, you’re not hip. Beyonce aims beyond the R&B charts she’s dabbled with Pop, Funk, Soul, Jazz, & Hip-Hop and her live band and stage show are quite impressive.

    Sit back if all you have is opinions and no ability to reason and think critically.

  19. lol

    Keri hilson is better

  20. P.

    I think she needs to reinvent herself bc she has become boring and predictable. Same wig same songs No growth. She sings the Basic B!tch anthems and is no where near the level of Michael Jackson

  21. omg

    she should perform with her boo, i’m just saying. mrs. carter?..bring out jay and blue ivy..give a real show!

  22. Will

    I figured she probably wouldn’t do newmaterial, it’s smart and sneaky of her! If she knew she could sell out a tour w/o new material, and then release new music next year & then drive all us fans to see her perform new material! But also technically there was never a 4 tour!

    This proves right her that Beyonce’s time is up because if you can’t come up with no new good material after being down for almost 2 years it’s time for you to go. I mean she just a had a child and she’s married what does she have to prove anymore. She was apart of the best selling and iconic DC3 and she’s an icon in her own right. She needs to settle down and work behind the scenes helping other to be great as she was in her prime. Because if she doesn’t bow down gracefully after all she has accomplished she’s gonna tear everything down that she worked her to get. I love Beyonce and everything but when it’s your time to go it’s your time to go.

    [Reply]

    channelPink Reply:

    @Natalie, With the demand for new music like this her time is far from up and she’s a Pop star so people will buy for the hell of it and she’s Beyonce so people will buy off of the name. But like she said in her documentary she could retire if she wants around and she’ll be happy. So I’m not stressing her new music. When the time come for it it’ll come.

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @NickiMinaj101, you need to check your facts, everytime mariah toured it was w/ the release of an album. adele toured for 21 incorporating old music from her previous 2 albums. yes, adele has been doing music for awhile but no one was talking about her before 21. the only person in your statement touring w/ no music is tina turner. but she is 70 & has 30+ years of music in her catalogue. i tell you what, when nicky releases her new album & it sells more than 38,000 then we’ll talk. #gimmicksareforkids
