Beyoncé and Jay Z Kick Off ‘On the Run Tour’ in Miami

Jay Z and Beyoncé

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.

Watch the Carters kick off their tour in style.

Beyoncé and Jay Z

In just two days, Beyoncé and Jay Z will kick off their “On the Run Tour” at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. After premiering the star-studded “RUN” movie trailer last month, the superstar couple has shared a series of black-and-white snapshots from their rehearsals for the stadium shows.

Bey keeps it low key in a hoodie while practicing some dance moves in front of the giant LED screen, while Jay looks at the stage through a monitor. Mr. and Mrs. Carter are pictured together in one photo, both sporting black hoodies.

According to Forbes, the tour is on track to sell almost 1 million tickets and gross close to $100 million. That would make it the second most successful tour of all time based on gross revenue per show.

Throughout July and August, “On the Run” will stop at major stadiums across the country including Atlanta’s Georgia Dome, New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, New Orleans’ Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and L.A.’s Rose Bowl before making its way to Paris on September 12 and 13.
