During the opening number to the Formation World Tour that Beyonce had at the America’s Center on Saturday night, Beyonce repeated that she slays. Truth be told, she indeed slays with her well-prepared concerts and the professionalism she shows every time.
Indeed, the Dome at America’s Center really became a “Beyhive” during the performance that lasted for two hours and that overcame even the most picky expectations. Her outspokenness has been largely criticized, mainly because she now comes with a new message on her music, which adds to all the messages she kept conveying with her most recent album, Lemonade. Lemonade was also highly controversial, since it treats themes such as infidelity, which lead to lots of questions regarding Jay-Z cheating or not on Beyonce.
The show on Saturday night was the first one after a vocal rest Beyonce had to take. Due to this break, she also had to postpone a show she had planned for New Jersey. The show at the Dome was almost sold-out, even though Live Nation, who produces the tour, did not give to the public any attendance figures. People were particularly excited about songs such as “All Night”, “Halo”, “Runnin’ (Lost It All)” and “Love on Top, the latter being performed a capella.
On the show fans could see a Beyonce which was more mature, thing that she herself admitted during the intro to “Dangerously in Love”. She even thanked the audience for letting her evolve and grow up as a singer.
The fans who bought a ticket to the show were also delighted by the dance she and her crew performed on stage. For instance, during the “Freedom” moment, they danced in a wading pool with water. Beyonce remained there for more songs such as “End of Time”, “Survivor” and “Halo”. The surprise of the night was when during “Single Ladies”, she stopped the concert and let John Silver to propose to one of her dancers, Ashley Everett.
