Stadium status. Following their sold-out solo tours, Beyoncé and Jay Z joined forces for their co-headlining “On the Run Tour” in Miami on Wednesday night.
Thousands of fans packed Sun Life Stadium to witness the superstar couple perform over 40 songs during the cinematic two-and-a-half-hour show, inspired by their star-studded “RUN” film trailer.
A screen displayed “This is not real life” before the Carters emerged through the smoke. “I need some gangster shit,” said Bey before launching into “’03 Bonnie & Clyde.” She donned a fishnet mask and leotard for the opening number, while Jay played her partner-in-crime in sunglasses and a black blazer.
They transitioned into “Upgrade U” and “Crazy in Love” and dueted on “Holy Grail” and “Young Forever.” Bey was fierce as ever in her many wardrobe changes including a multicolor Atelier Versace bodysuit, cut-out leotard, and Vrettos Vrettakos red crystal catsuit.
They also sprinkled in never-before-seen footage from their wedding (“Young Forever”) and Blue Ivy’s birth (“Halo”). Jay Z spit a new verse on “Partition,” while Bey covered Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor.”
“We celebrate love tonight,” said Jay-Z before kissing his wife in one tender moment.
