The reigning queen of pop (sorry, Madonna) makes a royal visit to London.
The one and only Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter – quite possibly the most famous pop star on the planet – is coming back to town. By the time she hits the stage at Wembley this summer, it will have been two-and-a-half years since she last released an album. Let’s hope there are some newies (including her latest banger ‘Formation’) on the setlist alongside Bey’s gamut of world-beating pop and R&B hits. Whatever she has planned, this mega-gig should be another hurricane of full-throttle tuneage and stuff-strutting moves to leave the audience breathless.
Beyoncé nothing short of mesmerising, she captivated the entire audience with ease, which must have been 60,000 people strong and then some!
The Formation World Tour has everything you’d expect from the Queen herself; from start to finish she slayed in a way only she knows how, delivering high energy choreography, stunned with her effortless vocals which were simply out of this world performing a mixture of old and new, anthems and ballads which portray the balance in per personality of sexy and fierce empowered woman to vulnerable and loving wife and mother. I particularly enjoyed some of the more endearing emotional moments, at times it felt as though she was on the edge of being reduced to tears when expressing her gratitude.
I was also delighted that she’s redeemed herself from the controversial V Festival performance from 2013, getting off on the wrong foot with a 30 minute delay to proceedings plus far more costume changes than necessary which both saw her being booed by a less than impressed, rain drenched crowd.
**Spoiler alert** My personal highlights were Love
On Top, Survivor (yes she sang this Destiny’s Child hit) and Crazy in Love. If
you’re not able to make the tour, I urge you to try to find the performances on
YouTube! During Love On Top there was
quite a moving atmosphere, with audience participation making it an acapella singalong and shining phone lights to resemble stars – there is something
truly special about so many people coming together as a collective in such a
way, Beyonce and Wembley go hand in hand to create these magical moments.
