Beyoncé and Jay-Z pay tribute to Grenfell victims at London show

The pair also wore green hearts in support of the Justice 4 Grenfell campaign

Beyoncé and Jay-Z paid tribute to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire during their London show last night (June 15). Check out footage below.

Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of the West London disaster. 72 people tragically lost their lives in the blaze, with hundreds more left homeless.

Figures from the worlds of entertainment, sport and politics aired tributes – with a vigil taking place overnight. Adele and Stormzy also joined survivors and bereaved family members at a memorial congregation.

During their On The Run II show in London last night, Beyoncé and Jay-Z dedicated the song ‘Young Forever’ to the victims of the tragedy. “I’d like to dedicate this song to the friends and families of the victims of Grenfell,” Beyoncé told the crowd. The couple were also wearing green hearts to show their support for the Justice 4 Grenfell campaign.

 

Following the performance, Justice 4 Grenfell tweeted: “We are grateful that Jay Z and Beyonce dedicated their last song to Grenfell tonight, they said their thoughts were with the families & survivors. We are glad they wore the green heart badges that we sent over! Thank you.”

Meanwhile, Beyoncé and Jay-Z will take to the stage at London Stadium for a second OTR II show this evening. The joint tour has already seen them perform in Cardiff, Glasgow and Manchester.

NME described the concert as “a two-hour masterclass from a pair of icons who are seemingly hell-bent on proving that love conquers all”.
