Beyoncé's long-awaited RENAISSANCE World Tour began with a bang last night – all thanks to excellent overseeing done by her eldest daughter, Blue Ivy. It seems the "Halo" songstress brought the family along with her for opening night in Stockholm, Sweden, where she had the stadium crowd going crazy while performing titles from her latest LP. All eyes were on Bey as her vocals rang out and she performed incredible choreography in beautiful designer outfits. The show's most noteworthy moments found her reminding the crowd that "a Queen moves at her own pace, bitch" and performing Lil Uzi Vert's "Just Wanna Rock" dance, much to the internet's pleasure.
While her mother reminded the BeyHive exactly why she's their favourite performer, Blue Ivy faithfully watched on from in the pit with her father, Jay-Z. They did their best to blend in with the crowd, wearing subtle black and white garments so as not to upstage the Houston native on her big day. As the crowd cheers and screams behind them, the Roc Nation head nods along, looking around him in approval at the massive number of fans cheering his partner on.
Jay-Z and Blue Ivy Show Out in Stockholm
As DailyMail notes, Beyoncé's performance wasn't quite as energetic as past tours have seen her, though some speculate this is due to her recovery from surgery. Her first concert began with a series of ballads, and she didn't hesitate to take breaks as needed throughout her set. Regardless, the Hive is more excited than ever to see the 41-year-old back on the road for the first time since 2018, when she and Jay-Z brought their collaborative THE CARTERS effort on tour.
Speaking of Hov, he's got plenty celebrating of his own to do this week. On Thursday (May 11), an open letter from his Roc Nation label went public, declaring why they're the strongest contender for New York's casino license. The east coast icon is hoping to open in the top eight floors of a Theatre District skyscraper, and eventually bring plenty of positivity and money into the lives of local residents and business owners.
