Not only is today a national holiday, giving many time off work, but it's also Beyonce's 42nd birthday. The Houston-born performer is a true Virgo, as she's best known for her ethereal energy that's curated through extreme perfectionism. She's spent much of the last few months performing for tens of thousands on her RENAISSANCE World Tour, which has been making major headlines thanks to her Los Angeles concerts. Ahead of her birthday, Bey specifically requested that friends and fans step out in their best silver attire, turning SoFi Stadium and other venues into a giant disco ball to perfectly match the theme of her latest LP.

While most people would want to spend their birthday as far away as possible from work, the Lemonade hitmaker will be performing one final show in the City of Angels tonight (September 4), in true Virgo fashion. Adele has already said that she'll be in attendance, though she's not sure if she'll be able to pull off silver as Beyonce has requested. Recent performances have also seen a star-studded roster of opening acts, including DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne, and Doechii, just to name a few.
