Folks who have “On the Run” tour tickets will get to see a brief glimpse of Beyonce and Jay Z’s wedding for the first time.
During Wednesday’s opening night in Miami, the couple showed a few seconds of their top secret 2008 nuptials. The never-before-seen footage included the couple exchanging rings, and Bey in a traditional-looking white wedding dress and veil.
Also, attendees are seen cheering when they walk down the aisle after the ceremony.
1. The Opening Sequence
The Carters didn’t waste any time before getting to their duets. Instead of saving them for the encore, they came out of the gate with “’03 Bonnie & Clyde,” “Upgrade U” and a “Crazy In Love” vs. “Show Me What You Got” mash-up that set the tone for the evening, the star couple both reinventing their respective catalogs and fusing them together.
2. The Interplay Between the Carters
As opposed to Jay Z’s other split-marquee tours – his jaunts with Justin Timberlake, R. Kelly, and Kanye West – On the Run felt truly collaborative. Beyoncé would perform a couple solo cuts, then Jay would bust out a medley of hits, then they’d share the stage for a “Holy Grail” or “Drunk in Love” before rotating the spotlight again. This interplay resulted in some unforgettable musical moments, like when a punk rock solo rendition of Beyoncé’s “Ring the Alarm” segued seamlessly into Jay’s “On to the Next One” or when a “Naughty Girl” remix morphed into “Big Pimpin’.”
