Stage times, support acts and more: Here’s what you need to know for Beyonce & Jay-Z’s London shows

Get in the know for OTR II....

Beyonce and Jay-Z will finally descend upon London this weekend, for two shows at the London Stadium.

After triumphant performances in Cardiff, Glasgow and Manchester, the OTR II tour arrives in the capital on Friday and Saturday night.

But while London fans can expect a similarly spectacular showing, it’s worth keeping an eye on the key details of the night – including stadium opening times, stage times and support act details.


Here’s what you need to know.

Where are Jay Z and Beyonce playing?

The ‘OTR II’ hits the London Stadium tonight and tomorrow.

For the uninitiated, that’s the former Olympic stadium located in Stratford.

The closest tube stations include Stratford, Stratford International and Pudding Mill Lane on the Docklands Light Railway.

What time does the London Stadium open?

The London Stadium bridges open at 3PM, giving fans the chance to buy a variety of food and drink options.


There’s also a wide selection of merchandise on offer too.

The actual stadium opens at 5PM, so you’ll be able to take your seats or secure a good standing spot at this point.

What time do Beyonce and Jay-Z arrive on stage, and is there a support act?

At present, it isn’t entirely clear what time Beyonce and Jay-Z will arrive on stage, with all the information so far promising a 7PM start and a 10.30PM end.

If the rest of the UK shows are anything to go by, it’s likely that they’ll arrive on stage at roughly 8PM , although it’s worth seeking confirmation of this when you arrive at the venue.

So far, the tour hasn’t had any support acts – with a DJ instead spinning a variety of tunes from 7PM onwards.

Are there any tickets left?

Although sold out for tonight’s show, tickets are still available for tomorrow, beginning at £50.

You can grab them from NME Tickets.
