Beyoncé Set to Perform at City of Hope Gala

September 17, 2018

It was announced today that global icon Beyoncé will perform at the City of Hope gala on October 11 in Los Angeles. This will mark her first solo performance following the successful run of the biggest tour of the summer, with JAY-Z. OTRII stadium tour started in Cardiff, UK in June and is scheduled to wrap on October 4 in Seattle, Washington.

City of Hope, a world-renowned independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases, is honoring Jon Platt, Chairman and CEO of Warner/Chappell Music, with its prestigious Spirit of Life® award. Platt has worked with Beyoncé since 2005.

Inspired by the guiding humanitarian principles of City of Hope and motivated by the institution's commitment to innovative medical research and compassionate patient care, a group of key industry executives founded the charity’s Music, Film and Entertainment Industry Group in 1973. In its 45-year history, the group has raised more than $118 million for City of Hope and has honored some of the most important figures in the music and entertainment industry.

The evening’s host will be producer/entertainer Pharrell Williams and JAY-Z, multi-Grammy winner/entrepreneur, will present the award to Platt.

“Beyoncé agreed to perform without a moment’s hesitation, and that wasn’t just for me,” said Jon Platt. “She wanted to be part of our celebration for the patients, doctors, scientists, and nurses who make City of Hope a place where miracles can happen. That’s what makes her a cultural icon. She’s not only a genius, in a class of her own, but she has phenomenal heart and soul, and she knows how to use them. This event is going to be one for the ages.”

Beyoncé And JAY-Z Announce A New Scholarship Program

August 26, 2018

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and Shawn "JAY-Z" Carter announce a new scholarship program that will award one exceptional senior high school student, with financial needs, 100K to put toward their enrollment in a college or university for the academic year 2018-2019. The award will serve as a dedicated university-based fund for each selected student throughout the duration of the student's enrollment.

This back to school season, students in OTRll Tour markets, who are preparing for college, will be chosen by Boys and Girls Club of America. Qualified students must demonstrate academic excellence and show financial needs that would make it hard for them to enter a college or university for the academic year 2018-2019.

The markets will include Atlanta, where the OTRll Tour plays at Mercedes Benz Stadium Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26, Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara and Seattle.

The Carters have had a long history of helping students with The Shawn Carter Foundation spearheading college tours to HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) and providing scholarships to college bound students nationwide

Beyoncé, through her BeyGOOD initiative, created the Formation Scholars Award, a merit program, in 2017 to help female students start or further their college education, and this year announced the Homecoming Scholars Award, a second merit program, opened to qualified students, regardless of gender, to enter or continue their studies at one of eight HBCUs.

OTR II show descends into chaos as dancers tackle stage invader

August 26, 2018

A Beyonce and Jay-Z concert ended in chaos on Saturday night after a stage invader managed to make to get within feet of the super stars as they walked off stage.

Video of the performance in Atlanta showed the invader casually make his way on to the stage from the audience, before rushing after the power couple; when the dancers realised what happened they rushed to the back of the stage moments to stop his tracks, before security guards also rushed the stage.

Many of the session musicians also on stage seem unaware of what is taking place below them, as they continue to perform.

In videos, shared by concertgoers at the venue, it appears that the invader is held down by security guards, however fans took to Twitter to ask where security was in the first place.

Beyoncé’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure confirmed via Instagram that the pair are fine.

‘Beyonce and JAY-Z on stage tonight in Atlanta. Thank you to all the fans for your concern,’ she wrote on Instagram, ‘they are fine and looking forward to the show tomorrow.’

Beyoncé & JAY-Z's On the Run II Tour Surpasses $150 Million Earned

August 25, 2018

Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s On the Run II Tour tops the Hot Tours list dated Aug. 25, thanks to the latest batch of earnings reported to Billboard Boxscore for the couple's successful trek. Their placement is fueled by recent engagements in Minneapolis, Detroit, and two sold-out shows for 86,000 fans at Chicago’s Soldier Field, which totaled $21.2 million in grosses.

With the addition of these four dates, Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s co-headline trek exceeds $150 million grossed, rising to a total of $150.7 million. Across 29 shows in Europe and the U.S., total attendance has reached 1.4 million. There are 19 dates left to report to Boxscore before the tour closes on Oct. 4 at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.

With another month and a half of dates still ahead for Beyoncé and JAY-Z, their tour is trending toward the $250 million mark. As implied by the tour’s name, it is the sequel to their original 2014 On the Run stint. The 2018 installment has already blown past its predecessor, which brought in $109.6 million.

The couple’s massive summer tour caps off a particularly fertile few years of their storied careers. They released a pair of complimentary albums, Beyoncé’s Lemonade in 2016 and JAY-Z’s 4:44 the following year. Combined, these two efforts yielded 21 entries on the Hot 100 and earned 3.5 million equivalent album units according to Nielsen Music. Together, they completed the trilogy with 2018’s Everything is Love, billed to The Carters. The joint album, released in the middle of their European leg, topped five Billboard charts dated June 30, 2018, including Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums, Top Rap Albums, and Digital Albums.

Minnesota Governor Announces Statewide 'Beyoncé and Jay-Z Day'

August 15, 2018

Minnesota Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton declared August 8th as a statewide “Beyoncé and Jay-Z Day” in anticipation of the megastar couple’s concert in Minneapolis. “Beyoncé and Jay-Z have taken home numerous awards from platforms such as the Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, BET Awards, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and NAACP Image Awards, among others and have sold millions of records worldwide,” Dayton wrote in an official proclamation.

“Through their lives and music, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have inspired Minnesotans, and music fans around the world,” he continued.

The proclamation was signed shortly before the couple gave a joint concert at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Dayton’s announcement comes over two years after he declared May 23rd as statewide ‘Beyoncé Day’ before the 36-year-old singer gave a concert in Minneapolis in 2016. Neither one of the pair were born or raised in Minnesota, with Beyoncé from Texas while Jay-Z is from New York.

Tyler Mitchell Addresses Rumors About Beyoncé's Vogue Cover

August 15, 2018

Tyler Mitchell took to Twitter on Monday to support the claim made by Anna Wintour that her and Raul Martinez, Condé Nast’s Corporate Creative Director, were the ones responsible for hiring him for Beyoncé’s Vogue September cover.

"An article from @BoF explaining the leaks and rumors around our shoot. The truth is Raul Martinez and Anna Wintour proposed and hired me for the Vogue shoot and Beyoncé quickly agreed. https://t.co/KOQx7SgebS"

Wintour shot down reports that Bey was the only one involved with picking Mitchell, marking the first time that Vogue hired a black photographer to shoot a cover for the publication in its 126-year history. Instead, she stated the credit belongs to Martinez. "The concept and the photographer was entirely Vogue’s, specifically Raul’s," she told BoF.

Martinez says he first became aware of Mitchell after seeing his work in March’s Teen Vogue digital cover where he photographed gun control activists. When Beyoncé was presented with a list of photographers to work with for her shoot, she “immediately approved” Mitchell because of the historical implications that came with his hiring. He was also well known within Beyoncé’s inner circle after previously photographing her sister Solange.

Wintour also responded to the report that Beyoncé was given full editorial control, saying that like other big stars who grace the cover, it was more of a collaboration. As for those rumors of her departure as editor-in-chief, Wintour fired back, "I’m not going to address it, I’m not going to address it."

On The Run II Tour European Leg Grosses $87.6M

July 31, 2018

With the combined star power of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, it comes as no surprise that the first leg of the couple’s “OTR II Tour” was a wild success. Pollstar’s Boxoffice has received reports for the entire 18-night European excursion – and every single show sold out.

Presented by Live Nation Global Touring in association with Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, the stadium outing kicked off June 6 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. That gig sold 39,731 tickets and grossed nearly $4.2 million (£3.1 million).

The European run racked up a total of 871,012 tickets sold and grossed more than $87.6 million. The average show sold 58,067 tickets and grossed more than $5.8 million, with tickets ranging in price from as low as €10 ($11.69) in Rome and Milan, Italy, to as high as €175 ($204.44) in Barcelona. The average ticket price was $100.57, which would seem a bargain to catch two of the biggest artists around.

The biggest stop of the European leg was the two-night stand at London Stadium, which sold a total of 126,443 tickets and grossed nearly $11.2 million. The London show also happened to be the location for the couple announcing the surprise release of their collaborative Everything Is Love album. The other cities that were treated to two nights of The Carters were Paris and Amsterdam.

Beyoncé Given Unprecedented Control Over Vogue's September Cover

July 31, 2018

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour gave Beyoncé unprecedented control over the cover of the upcoming September issue, sources say, and the music icon hired the first black photographer to shoot a cover in the publication’s 126-year history.

The publication is contractually obligated to give Beyoncé full control over the cover, the photos of her inside the magazine and the captions, which she has written herself and are in long-form, according to two sources who are familiar with the agreement between Vogue and Beyoncé but aren’t authorized to speak to the press.

Wintour has always exerted complete control over the fashion bible, including selecting the outfits worn by cover models. Cover subjects are usually given little to no say in their photos and are sent the cover in the week ahead of publication, a source familiar with the editorial process at the publication told HuffPost.

Beyoncé chose Tyler Mitchell, 23, to be her photographer.

“I depict black people and people of color in a really real and pure way,” Mitchell, who has already made a splash by shooting campaigns for Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, told The New York Times in December. “There is an honest gaze to my photos.”

Like just about everyone else, CeeLo Green is in love with Beyonce. And he's making it known this Valentine's Day.

In a new music video released Tuesday (Feb. 14) under Green's new Gnarly Davidson moniker, the Goodie Mob emcee gives Rick Springfield's classic 1980s rocker "Jessie's Girl" an update to profess his admiration of pop culture's biggest crush with "Jay Z's Girl."

The John Colombo-directed clip stars Little Fun as CeeLo's stand in, first confessing he's probably Jay Z's biggest fan before admitting his love for Hova's wife, The Queen Bey.

"Jay Z is the king," he sings, dancing around a room plastered with Beyonce posters. "And I'm probably his biggest fan/ But there's a feeling inside that I'm sure he'd understand/ I'm in love with Bey and I wanna be her man."

Always one to “cause all this conversation,” Beyoncé had fans and Grammys viewers alike buzzing about her performance Sunday night.

At the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, the expectant diva, 35, took the stage to perform her restrained Lemonade tracks “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles.” Complete with video montages, holograms, and a precariously placed chair, her 10-minute set had the audience rapt — and occasionally scratching their heads!

PEOPLE caught up with JaQuel Knight, Beyoncé’s longtime choreographer (you can thank him for that iconic “Single Ladies” wrist twist!), who opened up about how “mind-blowing” it is to work with Queen Bey, what her goddess-inspired Grammys performance meant — and if she’ll take the stage at Coachella!

How did last night’s performance come together?

We’ve been working five weeks on this, since January, and then we also just started developing the number “Love Drought” right after Tour, so the number’s been in development for a while. Read more...
Adele, Beyoncé and Maren Morris have all seen their sales surge after the Grammys – with some songs rising as much as 6,700%. The digital increase after music’s biggest night was reported by research company Nielsen.

Beyoncé did not win in the main categories despite nine Grammy nominations. She was still rewarded for an epic performance and unreserved praise from Adele.

Beyoncé’s fans responded with strong support on social media and more sales for her Lemonade album, which was up 267% on Sunday over its Friday/ Saturday average. “Formation,” nominated as both Song and Record of the year, grew by 105%. She also sung “Love Drought” (up by 1,249%) and “Sandcastles” (up 1,000%).
DJ Khaled dropped a surprise song right after the 2017 Grammy Awards!

The artist premiered his new song “Shining” on TIDAL featuring Beyonce and Jay Z.

Beyonce sings for the majority of the song while Jay raps a few verses and references having twins with his wife.

You can download the song on iTunes or listen to it on TIDAL below!

GRAMMY Award show producers are staying coy on what exactly will happen when Beyonce hits the stage on Sunday, but here's what we do know.

ET has learned that Beyonce's performance might include the singer dressed in gold and appearing on a giant turntable. The theme might be the diva's journey and evolution from child performer to superstar with actresses playing her at different stages of her life.

"Whenever she comes, she brings it," executive producer Ken Ehrlich told ET's Kevin Frazier. "Let's hope that -- if that happens -- it'll be pretty amazing."

The GRAMMY winner isn't expected to do any high-flying acrobatics or over-the-top stunts, considering that she is pregnant with twins, but Ehrlich said that her growing baby bump adds an extra glow that could make for an extra special performance.

"It's the glory of motherhood. She looks more radiant than ever," Ehrlich said. "She looks so beautiful." Read more...

Congratulations!
Though the Grammys haven’t officially announced Beyoncé as a performer, rumors have been flying all week. And in case you spent that week under a rock, Beyoncé is also pregnant. This morning, TMZ reports the future Carter twins mean Beyoncé will be taking things slower at the Grammys than she usually does at live performances.

According to TMZ’s sources, Beyoncé is in rehearsals for a Grammys performance, but her full routine won’t be locked down until the night before the show. Her producers reportedly have a couple of strategies to fill the stage and keep the audience occupied, including an elaborate digital backdrop and guest cameos.

Beyoncé is also set to headline both weekends of Coachella in April. Yesterday, TMZ reported festival organizers haven’t communicated with Beyoncé since the pregnancy announcement, but they aren’t making alternate plans.
The concert industry’s movers and shakers gathered at The Novo in Los Angeles for the 28th annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards on February 2. Hosted by Justin Willman, the night’s honorees represented everything from major tours, venues and clubs to booking agents, artist managers, staging, video and promotion.

Beyoncé was nominated in two categories: Major Tour of the Year and Most Creative Stage Production. She won in the second category, beating out Adele, Carrie Underwood, Coldplay and Kanye West. Congrats!
Beyoncé‘s surprise pregnancy news has set a new Instagram record.

The singer, who announced she was expecting twins with husband Jay Z on Wednesday, received 6.4 million likes and over 339,000 comments on her baby bump photo, less than eight hours after it was posted.

Within the first hour, it had over 2.4 million likes and 166,000 comments.

Queen Bey’s baby post surpasses previous record holder Selena Gomez‘s photo — of herself drinking Coca-Cola with the lyrics “You’re the Spark” from her hit song “Me & The Rhythm” on the bottle — which collected 6.3 million likes since last June.

Similarly on Twitter, the BeyHive were in a frenzy.

Within 45 minutes of Beyoncé making her pregnancy announcement, there were over half a million tweets about the baby news.

By 1:54 p.m. E.T., or within 15 minutes of the announcement, there were over 17,000 tweets sent per minute about Beyonce’s post, according to the social media platform.

In addition, “twins” was the top trend on Twitter, with “Beyonce,” “Blue” and “Beyhive” also trending.
Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising announced on Twitter that Beyonce will be one of the chairpersons for a gala at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles organized by Tina Knowles-Lawson!
