Beyonce Makes History At UK Glastonbury Festival [VIDEOS & PHOTOS]
Beyonce headlined the UK’s Glastonbury festival this past weekend. Considered England’s premiere music event, Beyonce made history as the first woman to ever headline the show; her hubby Jay-Z did so just three years ago.
Giving her 100,000 fan’s their money’s worth, she performed everything from Destiny’s Child’s gems to her first “Dangerously In Love” solo hits, from honorary covers of Prince & Etta James to soon-to-be classics from “4.”
Her medley of “Independent Women,” “Bootylicious,” and “Bug A Boo” segued into her collabo with Lady Gaga, “Telephone.”
She not only paid tribute to Etta James with “At Last,” but to Prince with “Beautiful Ones,” Kings Of Leon with “Sex On Fire,” and Alanis Morrisette with “You Oughta Know.”
“Crazy In Love,” “Baby Boy” and “Naughty Girl” recalled her first solo effort, while “Single Ladies,” “If I Were A Boy,” “Halo,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Why Don’t You Love Me” reignited her Sasha Fierce alter-ego.
With her new album dropping tomorrow, she made sure to remind the audience with “Run The World (Girls),” “Best Thing I Never Had” and “End Of Time.”
Of course, clips of her performances are being snatched down from the internet as we type these words, so enjoy the few while you still have the chance – and look out for Jay and Beyonce’s bestie Gwyneth watching from the audience!
Side note: Not one “B’Day” performance??
