Buying a ticket to see Beyoncé in concert is one of the most vital things you can do for yourself if you love live music, talent and entertainment. As one of the most top-selling tour performers, any ticket holder would be impressed with the show Beyoncé puts on at the Formation World Tour.
I attended the first of her Atlanta dates of the Formation World Tour (the next one is scheduled for September 26, 2016). The timely Beyoncé set the stage around 9:00 PM on the dot, only to bring about waterworks (literally), fireworks, and an energetic and enthusiastic performance like no other.
Preceding her arrival to the stage, DJ Khaled brought out all the hottest celebrities in town including TI, Ludacris, Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, The-Dream, August Alsina, and more to his opening set. DJ Khaled got the city hype for about half an hour and then a dramatic wait time for the Queen Bey.
Beyoncé entered the stage to her lead single of the Lemonade album, Formation. Amidst the smoky entrance came that big black hat and a host of female dancers stating, “Welcome to the Formation Tour. How y’all feeling tonight? If you’re ready to have a good time tonight, say, ‘I slay!’ If you slay every day, say ‘I slay!’ If you know who you are, say, ‘I slay!’”
As the pandemonium set in, there continued to be footage from the Lemonade album, her new clothing line Ivy Park, and never before seen personal videos of Blue Ivy and husband (yes, still HUSBAND) Jay-Z. Not only did Beyoncé do material from her week-old album, in which Fans still sang WORD FOR WORD, she also pulled out some classic hits like Survivor, Me, Myself and I, Crazy in Love and much more.
I feel that this concert was truly for the fans, as she didn’t stick to just her hit singles (No, Single Ladies for Atlanta performance), she also did many of the songs that were on her albums but not usually performed live.
As the theme of female empowerment and loving yourself rang on, all you could do was SLAY with Beyoncé. She showcased her all female dancers and band throughout the show that truly brought to life the Female anthem Run the World (Girls).
My favorite part was the barefooted dancers and Beyoncé approaching a pool of water ON STAGE, (dangerous, yet brilliant) to perform with water at their feet, the sounds of the powerful Freedom (featuring Kendrick Lamar on the album).
Overall, the show was full of energy and excitement and the only question is now, do I go AGAIN?
If you have seen the show, what has been your favorite part of the tour???
