“On The Run” first started in 2014, when Jay Z and Beyoncé decided to break all sort of records by traveling and singing throughout Europe and the US as the most iconic pop couple ever. Now, with “On The Run 2,” Jay -Z and Beyoncé are back for the sequel and fans are excited, to keep things lightly. Kicking things off in Cardiff, the tour is scheduled to make over 40 stops in Europe and the US.
This tour follows the release of Lemonade, Beyoncé’s fuck you to Jay-Z, and 4:44, Jay-Z’s I’m sorry to Beyoncé. “On The Run 2” is less a concert and more like an exercise in modern art. Or a soap opera. And while the concert gets pretty emotional at times, cheesily proclaiming “This. Is. Real. Life” on the stadium screens, Rolling Stone claims that it’s a great time, fun and upbeat, emphasizing on the fairytale aspect of the couple’s relationship.
Forbes reports that tickets for the show are much more expensive than all other tours where famous individual artists perform. On average, these tickets are worth 342.67 dollars, much more expensive than Beyoncé’s and Jay-Z’s previous individual concerts. While the price seems a tad excessive, you’re paying to see a couple that’s managed to sell over 200 million records and win over 36 Grammys. They also have a net worth of $850 million. So we don’t even know why they’re touring. Check out some of the best videos and images that people captured in Cardiff:
