Beyonce's Formation World Tour kicks off in Miami

Beyonce kicked off her long-anticipated "Formation" World Tour at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida last night. The 35-year-old boudoir singer opened her spectacular show with her controversial hit song "Formation". A few Miami police officers were seen scattered throughout the venue to support Bey's own private security force.

Her long set featured past hits (Single Ladies", "Ring The Alarm") and songs from her critically acclaimed visual album, Lemonade, including: "Freedom", "Sorry", "6 Inch", "Hold Up", "Don't Hurt Yourself", and my personal favorite: "All Night".

Bey also performed an emotional tribute to singer, Prince, who passed away under mysterious circumstances at age 57 last week.

The marketing genius capitalized off her Super Bowl halftime show controversy by selling "BOYCOTT BEYONCE" t-shirts.

DJ Khaled, Beyonce's tour DJ, brought out his rap pals during his set, including: Yo Gotti, 2 chainz, Lil wayne, Trick daddy, and Ciara's baby daddy, Future.

Beyonce closed out her show by telling her cheating husband she loved him.

Beyonce's rabid fans - the so-called "BeyHive" - flooded social media with cell phone photos and videos from the sold out show. Thanks to celebrity blogger TheJasmineBRAND for compiling the list.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Opulence, that intro is everything. She told y'all 3 months ago, that she was coming to slay!!!!!! Baby when I tell you I can't wait til Sunday night. My inner sissy gone be on 10..... Ok ladies now let's get in formation. She might not be everyone's cup of Tea , but one thing for sure and two things for certain she slays a stage??????

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    I have one more headache, the concert was great but getting home was a btich!!! Even with the heavy presence of City of Miami police officers around the stadium, the traffic was hell. They closed off a lot of streets surrounding the Marlins Park...

  • RICHIE_RICH

    auntie sandy we knew all along you were a Fan.... All Night goes in?

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    She covered "Purple Rain"? ? "Controversy" would have been a more fitting song choice considering recent events.

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    shade thrown: boudoir singer...BOOM. wall slides w/a giggle

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm not surprised. It sounds like the police did that on purpose.

  • mela.reign77

    Sandra why do you hate my boo so much!??? Kmsl.... Little shady self...lmbo! You must admit she's a great performer and can hold her own. Heck how many people do you know that can fall down steps, off a stage, run into walls, fall going up the steps, drop down catch a cramp getting back up and still kill every performances? I don't know not one person outside of Tina Turner. I couldn't do it for sure, heck after that first fall I would still be recovering waiting on my disability. lmbo!!!!!!!

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    They were directing traffic but it was n like packed sardines trying to get up out of there, not to mention the pedestrians and what not.

  • Jay

    Now I do agree she can perform on a stage that will be the only reason why I would want to see her in concert because I know she wont disappoint.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    So according to this Jay Z next, and he lying Paul McCartney did want his masters, he didn't want to pay what Micheal Jackson wanted, because he is the one who owned then at the time.

  • ebonics

    Whoa, that first pic doesnt even look like her. Its time to throw away that wig mama! She needs to reinvent her look that long, light hair has expired and is beyond boring. Yawn.

  • Tammie Reed

    Those granny ma colored fishnet stockings make me cringe everytime she wears them! All that money and she cant find another shade, brand or sumthin? Lawd!

    On another note, I liked the costume designs better on her #OnTheRun tour which seemed like it was just yesterday! I saw her here in concert in Atlanta, she did great!

  • semaj24philly

  • MzFutureLCSW

    I am sure she puts on a GREAT show but I am not into secular music to the point of breaking bread.

  • semaj24philly

    I didn't want to be the one to say that

  • MzFutureLCSW

    She is a vegan now.

  • mela.reign77

    What??? I didn't know that...lmbo omg!

  • KB

    I use to do that routinely when I moved to the A & going out Friday and Saturday lit. I kept the weight off and everything. When I stopped going out well, needless to say I miss dancing mentally and physically.

  • KB

    Nope

  • KB

  • FoxyDiva

    I said it before, in a day in age when folks r "famous" for IG I become more of a fan! Bey puts in work! Cant wait! May 18th baby! In formation hunty :-)

  • FoxyDiva

    I haven't either boo. After Formation tho I couldn't resist. It'll be my first

  • Luvn_it

    I think she just prefers the flesh tones to match her skin, but I myself wish she would wear regular nude/flesh colored panty hose. Instead of those fishnets it would look more natural and steal hide the problem areas she's trying to hide.

  • what?why

    There's Blue - Beyonce is a lot of things but the best is being a great mother to Blue.

  • That’s Interesting

    Lol! You would think somebody would alert her about that condition...

  • Carmen Jones

    Nice outfits!!! Looks like the show was amazing.

  • KIC came to slay!

    Sunday can't come soon enough.

  • KIC came to slay!

    Nope. But I'm going to see her Sunday.

    I remember back in the day when us guys all thought Beyonce had the prototype big booty. Now, with all the silicone, pads, fat transfers, etc around she just looks normal.

    They're dance tights and are hard to find in our color. I think she also wears 2 pairs of tights at a time so that's why they look so thick. (2 pairs of tights is a dancer's trick - keeps down the jiggling LOL)

    She said that is why she wears 2 pair too!

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    Who is he? Feed him info for what? He owns his masters....and like I said Paul wanted his but felt like the price Mike was asking was too high. There is a law that after so many years the masters revert back to the artists.

  • Tammie Reed

    NO, not really, thats her looking a mess lol

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    Some of those are just part instrumental....segues into next performances.

  • Stan4NoOne

    Only a fan could be THIS consumed.

  • Stan4NoOne

    She's still ending with Halo? She should end with All Night Long... I'm sure that will change ?

  • Allihave2say

    My thoughts on Beyonce: 1. Disagree with many things she presents as far as life & religion but respect her work ethics - theft. 2. Ion think she cares about hair too much so i imagine she uses the same weaves for yrs to avoid spending money on something she sweats out. 3. How many of us 30 somethings (i left this arena yrs ago) can move like this?
