Incident took place at French gig last week
A Beyonce fan filmed a fellow gig-goer playing Pokémon Go during the singer’s concert in France last week.
The gig took place at the Stade de France, just north of Paris, last Thursday (July 21) as part of the star’s ‘Formation’ world tour.
Fan Anand Desai-Barochia uploaded a clip to Instagram in which he expresses his shock at a fan playing the hit mobile game while next to the stage at the Beyoncé gig.
“This bitch is finding Pokémon,” he is heard saying in the video. “She’s finding Pokémon when Beyoncé’s singing. Fucking Pokémon! Look at where she is. Look at where she is. She’s next to the stage!”
“She’s lucky Solange never saw her,” he later wrote in the Instagram caption.
Pokémon Go’s astonishing success has been highlighted after it recently became the most successful mobile game in US history.
The success of the game is so widespread that a Pokémon Go dating app has now been launched. Entitled PokéDates, the venture is an offshoot of existing dating service Project Fixup, and aims to set up prospective partners by sending them on Pokémon hunting dates. The first ‘PokéDate’ is free but after that, you must refer friends or pay $20 (£15) for each additional date.
