Okay ladies now let’s get in FORMATION…Queen Bee destroyed the Soldier Field stage just a couple of weeks ago and here’s why.
Everyone knows that Beyoncé is currently on her Formation World Tour (unless you live under a rock), and it has pretty much sold out everywhere across the nation (so far). Celebrities like Jay Z, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson and more have been spotted at the songstress’ concert all over the country, on the blogs, and we just couldn’t wait till it was our turn to attend the show in The Windy City.
The “Crazy in Love” artist caused quite a stir when her first video “Formation,” from her newly released visual album “Lemonade,” premiered right before her 2016 Super Bowl 50 performance back in Febuary.
Refer back to our previous post ( SNL Formation Skit ) if you aren’t sure what we’re talking about.
Despite the uproar, Queen B went on to announce another world tour, and has been slaying the stage since April 2016. Needless to say, Intunewithtwo could not miss the chance to see the queen herself in person when she came to Chicago, and not only was she in town for one night, but she gave us two consecutive nights of exciting and fun-filled performances.
Chicago was buzzing, calling the two days the “Bey Weekend,” while radio stations like 107.5 WGCI and WPWX Power 92 got us prepared by playing her most favorable hits for long straight hours. We attended the concert on Saturday, May 28th, with no rain in the forecast and the city was crazy. Only Beyoncé can come to town, and cause major traffic (worse than usual in a city like Chicago) and no one complained about it. Besides, the craziness was worth it for the amazing show that she gave us.
Soldier Field was packed to the core with overzealous fans. As soon as the stars started popping out in the sky and the lights inside the field dimmed, cheers quickly built up and finally, the recognizable intro beat of “Formation” blasted out through the speakers.
It was just a party after that. We heard singles from her new “Lemonade” project and hits from her previous “I Am…Sasha Fierce,” “B’Day” and 2013 “Beyoncé” albums. We shook our bums to “Crazy in Love,” threw our fingers in the air to “Single Ladies” and sang out with pride to “Run the World (girls).”
The highlight was when she performed a tribute to the late great music legend, Prince.
We sang, danced, cried and pretty much stayed on our feet the entire night, soaking in every moment of the show.
Beyoncé isn’t only an artist, oh no! She’s a performer and an entertainer and any beyhive will let you know what a perfectionist (and feminist) that she really is.
Her performance was simply “flawless” from beginning to end and it was definitely an experience of a lifetime.
