Beyonce said that she was still on a "high" after her Glastonbury performance at a low-key London show last night (June 27).

The singer played London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on the release day of her album '4' to a select audience which included Jay-Z, Adele and Jessie J, reports Digital Spy.

She told the crowd: "I'm still high from yesterday at Glastonbury," before adding: "Today is a special day because my new album is out."

Beyonce also played her controversial cover of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' during the show. She told the crowd: "You know what? There was a song I was supposed to do, but didn't have time. It's called 'Bohemian Rhapsody'."

She also played 'Listen' and 'Work It Out', both of which she omitted from her Glastonbury set. To watch footage from the show, scroll down below.

In other news, the singer admitted that she was afraid of women who don't have friends.

According to Showbiz Spy she said: "When women don’t have friends, I’m afraid of them. I grew up around women, I believe that we can teach each other so much.

"I'm always thinking about how unselfish we are and the things we need to hear and how much pressure there is being a woman. I try to write songs that will bring out the best in all of us and keep us close together."

The setlist for Beyonce's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire show was:

'Run The World (Girls)'
'Best Thing I Never Had'
'End Of Time'
'Bohemian Rhapsody'
'The Beautiful Ones'
'Sex On Fire'
'Work It Out'
'Single Ladies'
