10 Times We Couldn't Believe Our Eyes During Beyoncé and Jay Z's On the Run Tour
Let's face it, it was all Yoncé.
By Lauren Valenti
Over the weekend, our lives changed forever when we finally feasted our eyes on Beyoncé and Jay Z's On The Run tour. Pror to the show, we were nervous that it had been hyped too much, but as soon as the Carters hit the stage we remembered that it's impossible to overestimate the fierce twosome.
The two hour, 44-track set was as much a trip down memory lane — with early 00's hits like "Crazy in Love," "Naughty Girl," and "Public Service Announcement" — as it was a medley of the pair's latest slew of hits from Beyoncé's self-titled album and Jay Z's Magna Carter Holy Grail. Whether performing solo or together, each oozed guesto and sex appeal. As for those pesky cheating rumors, the concert put all of our worries to rest. This, despite Bey showing off her vengeful side with ballads like "Ring the Alarm" and "Resentment." They certainly like to keep us guessing.
Naturally, we've been going through Bey and Jay withdrawl ever since they closed the show with "Lift Off," and have to to relive some of our favorite moments. Let's face it, they all belong to Yoncé.
1. The couple opened with "03 Bonnie & Clyde," then stared out at the crowd like this:
2. Oh, and Beyoncé turned around and proved to us that she may be a mom, but she still looks fierce.
3. Trouble in paradise? We think not. Yoncé threw up her hubby's hova hand sign in head-to-toe Versace.
4. Bey repped her home state Texas in studded leather and denim cut-offs.
5. Blue Ivy's parents showed off some major PDA.
6. Queen Bey commanded the crowd with fiery rendition of "Ring the Alarm."
7. She debuted an all-black-look designed by New York City's own Alexander Wang.
8. Mrs. Carter sang "Resentment,'" with those cryptic, rumor-fueling lyrics live.
9. The couple performed Jay's hit "Forever Young."
