Four continents, 132 shows, and nearly one year later, Beyoncé wrapped her “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” in Lisbon, Portgual on Thursday.
The singer was overcome with emotion as she addressed fans during her last show at MEO Arena.
“If ya’ll didn’t know, tonight makes 132 shows,” said Bey as the crowd cheered. “Tonight is the last show of the Mrs. Carter Show.”
She also acknowledged her band and crew. “We started a year ago. I wanna say this has been such a journey. In the past year, we’ve been through so much together, the Super Bowl, shooting the videos, all of these shows.”
“When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking. I just want you to know that I am so lucky,” she said before breaking down in tears.
“I’m giving ya’ll the ugly cry,” joked Bey.
She also expressed her gratitude to her BeyHive. “Thank you for allowing me to have a career, and when I fall, you lift me up. And when I’m hungry, you feed me. And I just want to give you my light. I dedicate this song to you guys,” she said before performing “XO.”
During the final concert, Jay Z also joined his wife on stage to perform “Drunk in Love.”
“The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” kicked off in Serbia in April 2013 and traveled throughout Europe, North America, South America, and Australia, grossing around $200 million.
