Beyonce is an unmatched talent! The 34 year old super music sensation made her 2nd stop in her home state- Texas at Jerry’s World! Filling the stadium with over 80,000 #Beyhive fans highly anticipating the Queen’s arrival.
The experience of walking into Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium is indescribable, add Yonce as the feature and you have a mind- blowing encounter as you brave the crowd dressed in Bey paraphernalia and costumes. *More on my look below
Gazing at the stage housing a 360 degree pixel mapped rotating LED cube shaped video wall yielding at least a $500,000 ticket (based on info from Velyncia Mallory, owner of VC Designs- an audio/visual production company) we were not quite sure what to expect but we knew we’d be able to catch it on a screen larger than Jerrys!
DJ Khaled brought us to our feet with his classic “All I do Is Win” before the legendary Bun B of UGK hit us with chart topper “Big Pimpin”. Newcomer, O.T. Genasis hit the stage performing his new single “Cut It” thats burning airwaves right now was the icing on the cake for the pre show! To conclude the opening acts Beyonce’s artist from her Parkwood Entertainment management company INGRID hit the stage dropping bars and putting me in the mind of a young Foxy Brown.
Then it began, Bey hit the stage marching to her first single from LEMONADE... Formation. After her stellar opening act she belts "I am Beyonce, I am from Texas and no matter where I go I represent Texas!!” to a roaring crowd.

Erykah Badu, Andre 3000 and of course Jerry Jones were just a few celebs in tow to witness the songstress perform over 20 of her hits with at least 5 captivating wardrobe changes. The star worked the stage for over 2 hours singing, dancing and head swinging with a slew of backup dancers (I was one myself, of course. In my mind HA HA), her live band, aerialists, confetti *said using Bey's voice* and pyro techs exploding from the video wall.
"All you have to do is Dream and you will make it a reality for yourself!” - Beyonce
Highlights from the night was the artists expressive ode to Prince by singing “The Beautiful Ones’ as purple covered the expansive wall behind her. Let’s not forget the Queen turning her stage into a pool of water during her “Freedom” performance. Lastly, ending the Formation Tour with an emotional thank you waving the Texas Flag given to her by a fan.
Honestly, I’d never had such a great time at a concert in my life! From the production set to the costumes and choreography this tour is one well thought out LIVE video set! Find more vids from the concert here on my IG!
