Beyoncé Brings ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’ to L.A.

Beyoncé

Beyoncé kicked off the North American leg of her “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” at the Staples Center in L.A. on Friday as part of the inaugural BET Experience. Following opening act Melanie Fiona, the superstar singer hit the stage shortly before 9 p.m., delivering a tour de force.

The star-studded crowd included Katy Perry, Kobe Bryant, Maria Shriver, Jesse Jackson, and her fellow Destiny’s Child divas Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, who she shouted out during the show.

She opened with her female anthem “Run the World (Girls)” before marching into “End of Time.” She covered Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” and took it back to her DC days with “Survivor.” While her new song “Standing on the Sun” was left out of the set, she did perform “Grown Woman.”

“What an incredible show! #Mrs.CarterRockedthehouse! so proud of MY B!!!!” tweeted Kelly, while Katy Perry raved, “I am BOWing down right now! #stanningforB.”

Check out some footage from the first U.S. show below.

    Her tour did extraordinary things overseas and I see it being no different here in the states. I mean, she had to just add like 30 more dates to keep up with the demand. She is seriously like a machine and always delivers superb performances over and over and over and over and over again.

    Beyoncé is a Queen on her Tours & When ever she put out her album and in her personal life I don’t think that she’s a Queen so stop calling her that Beyhievn. What is Next for her? she will be doing Tour all this year around before she dope her album for next year 2014

    I’m so sick of this overrated no talent heffa using her own money to buy up music and seats messing with the market.

    She needs to get some better music, take all them flashing lights out of her show that makes people have seizures, and all them dancers.
