Superstar Beyonce is currently over here on our side of the pond on the UK leg of her ‘I Am…’ tour. During last night’s final show here, at London’s 02 (until November), she was joined onstage by none other than George Michael (random, ey?), with the two performing a duet version of ‘If I Were A Boy’ (even more random LOL). Pretty enjoyable I must say, despite uncle George messing up the words.
Now, as some of you may know, That Grape Juice was in the house on Beyonce’s 2nd London date (May 26th). I had plans to do an in-depth review, however only remembered at the end of the show LOL. The show was that good, that captivating, that….ahhh!!! Ms. Knowles-Carter really showed why she is the best performer around today. Period.
Without turning this too much into a personal post, the day itself read like movie-script. From me racing down from one side of London with a friend to the other to make it in time – in a £60 taxi (BPT is ok sometimes, but it’s a recession people!) – and missing the opening act Shontelle (who apparently sucked LOL), to having my sisters, who are big Bey stans (shout-out to Beyonce World, where Miss Junior Grape Juice lives daily!) screaming down my phone about how ‘serious’ our seats were – first row of the 2nd stage (they were at the arena already), to Bey giving my sister her towel, to seeing Jay-Z. As you can probably tell from my awful grammar above (lol), we had amazing time – even better than The Beyonce Experience.
Check out some of the pics I took from the show below – That Grape Juice exclusives:
The winner of our Beyonce ‘I Am…’ tour after party ticket give-away, which was hosted by Beyonce herself and saw performances from Solange, was 21 year old Omar from London. Peep his email after attending the show:
Just want to say thank you again for the tickets. We had a really good time and we managed to be front row!!! Beyonce was hot and Solange killed it. We saw Tina (Knowles) and Jay-Z along with Bey in the upper level and it was a great nite!
If ur going to the concert tonite has fun. I’ll b going on the 8th June! If u meet beyonce, tell her to call me, lol
Good stuff. Be sure to keep it locked on That Grape Juice for more competitions. UK’ers are gonna like what’s coming tomorrow (shhh…don’t tell anyone!)
