Beyoncé and Jay Z's Best Onstage Moments
There's no doubt that Beyoncé and Jay Z are one of music’s most powerful couples and that's why we love it when they perform together. Last night the talented pair kicked off their joint On The Run Tour in spectacular style at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
The show opened with an energetic performance of their hit collaboration "’03 Bonnie and Clyde," with Beyoncé dressed in custom long-sleeved Atelier Versace black bodysuit covered with sequined netting, a matching net headpiece by the label, and high-heeled combat boots (above). Jay Z kept it simple by sporting a black blazer over a shirt emblazoned with the American flag, a bevy of gold chain necklaces, and a black beanie.
The rest of the totally integrated night included hits from both stars, including Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love" and "Run the World (Girls)," and Jay Z's "Tom Ford" and "Show Me What You Got." Beyoncé changed looks several times throughout the concert—a military-inspired custom Diesel denim bodysuit (above, left) and a second Atelier Versace custom printed bodysuit were among her fierce ensembles (above, right).
During the show, which includes an incredible 43-song set list, the couple shared a never-before-seen video from their 2008 wedding along with footage of their 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. As one of the most anticipated concert tours of the summer, we can't wait to see what else the duo has in store!
