Queen Bey gets reflective as the tour enters its final leg
With fewer than 10 dates left on the hip-hop power couple’s co-headlining tour, the ‘Formation’ singer shared a reflective post on Instagram.
Ahead of yesterday evening’s (September 13) show at New Orleans’ Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Beyonce wrote: “Tonight is the first of the last ten shows of OTRII. I’m doing what I love most with whom I love most. I wish it could never end. Feeling thankful for all of the love from our fans around the world. New Orleans, you ready? Let’s go get em!!!”
The ‘On The Run II Tour’ surpassed $150 million (gross) in August.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s massive summer tour caps off a notably prolific era of their careers. They released a pair of complimentary albums, Beyoncé’s Lemonade in 2016 and JAY-Z’s 4:44 the following year. According to Nielsen Music, these two records combined yielded 21 entries on the Hot 100 and earned 3.5 million equivalent album units.
As a duo, they completed the trilogy with 2018’s Everything is Love, released under the name The Carters.
The joint record, which was released in the middle of the European leg of their tour, topped five Billboard charts at the end of June.
The ‘On the Run II Tour’ ends on October 4 at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, the final of 48 shows.
