OTR II Tour Architect Reveals New Content Will Be Added To The Show

June 20, 2018

Nobody does a stadium show like Beyoncé. Back in 2016, when she was touring Lemonade, she took with her a 60-foot “monolith” to project mountainous videos at her audience – it was so big that some venues had to reduce the size of the audience in order to fit the stage. This time around, for her second On The Run tour with Jay-Z, the dynamic stage feels lighter – but it provides a number of “oh shit!” moments (not only when the couple end their show by dropping a new album, as they did on Saturday June 16 in London).

The stage is mainly constructed of two catwalks, which Bey and Jay use to perform independently of one another; at the end of the show, a giant bridge connects the two, floating over the audience as it does so. More impressive than this is the backdrop of the stage, which is dominated by two giant video screens (each of which, designer Ric Lipson tells me, is the size of “a London street”). At various points in the show, these screens split open, to reveal a four-storey structure, on which figures dance, play instruments, and sometimes create a silhouetted tableau. It’s reminiscent of the thrum of vibrant energy that Bey brought with her to this year’s Coachella performances, where she chose to perform in front of college-style bleachers packed with 120 dancers and instrumentalists, rather than the screens that usually dominate massive arena pop shows.

The show was brought to life by Stufish, a London-based entertainment architectural firm who also worked on the stage that was used for Beychella (as well as having a storied history producing shows for Lady Gaga, Queen, and U2). Dazed spoke to Stufish architect Ric Lipson about how the stage design reflected Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s narrative of forgiveness and reconciliation, why Beyoncé altered the design to accommodate a huge band, and how the show may change as it keeps travelling.

Beyonce's Hair Colorist Shares Inspiration Behind Her New Blonde Hue

June 11, 2018

She’s known as Queen Bey for a reason! Beyoncé and Jay-Z kicked off their On the Run II tour in Cardiff, Wales, on Wednesday, June 6, and while the show is epic for so many reasons (think: insane musical talent, jamming songs, gorgeous costumes), we couldn’t help but be mesmerized by Beyoncé’s #flawless cascade of curls. So you can imagine our delight from Bey’s longtime hair colorist Rita Hazan (the same woman who crafted the perfect shade of blonde for those history-making 2018 Coachella performances in April) agreed to spill all the details on the summery strands.

“I got a call that Beyoncé wanted her hair color to be super dramatic for this show which is why I jumped on the soonest flight to Paris to meet with her last weekend,” Rita tells Us. When it came to deciding on the perfect shade, the colorist, who first started working with Bey about seven years ago at the recommendation of the diva’s hairstylist Kim Kimble, explained that it was all about minding the details (i.e. lighting, wardrobe, makeup, etc.).

“She was requesting color that was impactful and that would translate well on stage with the bright lights and her fierce wardrobe,” Hazan says. “I ended up making the ends of her hair extremely golden blonde – not ashy – and her roots a few shades darker. It took a few hours to create but overall she is embracing a more natural look and texture.”

While the half-up style and tight ringlets are similar to the waist-grazing urban glam look she sported at Coachella, the On The Run II hue is noticeably warmer than the music festival’s ashier blonde. The new shade is the perfect complement to her sculpted golden goddess makeup look, complete with a neutral lip, shimmering eye and graphic winged liner.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z Launch BeyGOOD/Do Good Campaign

June 4, 2018

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have teamed up with two of the world's most prestigious youth-focused initiatives, The Prince's Trust and Global Citizen, to reward fans for being kind, charitable and doing good for others. Fans who volunteer through these organizations will be given the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the United Kingdom and European dates on the OTR all stadium tour.

The BeyGOOD/DoGood campaign kicks off in the UK on June 6 in Cardiff, Wales, with The Prince's Trust, the youth charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1976, to help change young lives. Beyoncé also partnered with The Prince's Trust in 2014 during her solo Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

Global Citizen continues the campaign in Europe starting on June 19 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. First launched in 2012, Global Citizen is an international advocacy organization working to end extreme poverty by 2030. In addition to performing twice at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, in New York City, Beyoncé has joined forces with Global Citizen through Gucci's CHIME FOR CHANGE with a focus on social issues faced by women and girls globally.

"The united efforts of BeyGOOD/DoGood, along with our amazing partners The Prince's Trust and Global Citizen, are calling upon you to lift your voices, lend your hands and share your creativity as active and positive forces for doing good," states Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy (BeyGOOD) and Corporate Relations for Parkwood Entertainment. "Wherever you are and whatever skills, talents and resources you possess, are of value to others in your community, country and across the globe."

Next month, Beyoncé and JAY-Z will kick off their On The Run II tour in Europe before touching down in the U.S. in July. While no guest openers have been announced for the European leg of the tour, Bey's mentees, Chloe x Halle, and DJ Khaled announced Thursday (May 31) on Twitter that they'll be joining the power couple for the North American jaunt.

"We will be opening for the North American leg of On the Run II. That's right, the kids are on the run, too," said Chloe, who could barely contain her excitement, in a short video posted to the duo's Twitter. Halle added, "We are so very excited for this family reunion of Parkwood and Roc Nation. We cannot wait to join the North American leg of this tour; we cannot wait to see your beautiful faces and we're so thankful to Beyoncé and to JAY-Z and we just know that this is going to be an epic reunion."

DJ Khaled followed suit and shared the On the Run II promo flyer on Twitter, writing, "Hitting the road with @S_C_ and @Beyonce in North America for the #OTR2 tour!!"

The North American leg of the upcoming tour will begin July 25 in Cleveland, Ohio. From there, Bey, Hov and their guests will make stops in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Buffalo, Miami, Atlanta and more before ending the tour in Vancouver on October 2.

Kelly Rowland Responds to Rumors Destiny's Child Is Joining OTR Tour

May 5, 2018

Destiny’s Child just had an epic reunion at Coachella last month — but according to Kelly Rowland, that doesn’t mean they’ll be joining Beyoncé and JAY-Z on tour this summer.

After rumors spread that Rowland and Michelle Williams would be joining the superstar couple for their upcoming On The Run II tour, Rowland, 37, tells PEOPLE that they aren’t true. In fact, there hasn’t even been any talk about the possibility.

“This is the first time I heard it — this morning,” Rowland told PEOPLE at Schick’s F.A.B. event in N.Y.C. on Thursday. “I was like, ‘Well, that’s news to me!’ There hasn’t been anything we discussed. She and Jay are getting ready to go on tour — I’m sad because I won’t see those babies.”

But according to the singer, the girl group is just as in sync as they were during their Destiny’s Child days. Rowland adds that while they spent days in rehearsals for their most recent reunion at Coachella, hitting the stage with Beyoncé and Williams by her side felt just like old times.

“It was long days but it was so fun. I think the best part was it felt like we were just on stage yesterday. It didn’t feel like it was years that we haven’t been together, and that’s how natural we are together as friends, as sisters.”

Beyoncé and JAY-Z Will 'Confront the Hard Subjects' on Tour

April 10, 2018

Beyoncé and JAY-Z are ready to put their love on top during their upcoming tour, On The Run 2.

The Lemonade singer’s stepfather, Richard Lawson, popped by the PEOPLE Now studio to talk about his new 10-episode legal drama series In Contempt alongside co-stars Erica Ash and Christian Keyes, when he revealed the couple’s plans to display a more vulnerable side on stage after working hard to strengthen their marriage following publicized issues of past infidelity.

“Well, look at what they’ve been through in the last couple of years in terms of the things that they’ve confronted and the way that they’ve put it into art,” Lawson tells PEOPLE. “This is gonna be really a culmination of their growth and their ability to really confront the hard subjects and the hard issues.”

After therapy and hard work, the rap mogul, 48, revealed to David Letterman on Friday’s episode of his Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman that he and the Queen Bee, 36, are “in a better place today,” possibly because of her big heart and openness to forgive.

The singer posted details on her Ring the Alarm outfit on Beyonce.com:

For the performance of “Ring the Alarm” during the On The Run show, Beyoncé takes the stage in a couture Vrettos Vrettakos ‘crystal spirit’ bodysuit designed by Dennis Kolpodinos.

The red look is complete with fringe details on the limbs and is embellished with Swarovski crystals for stage-ready shine.
For the performance of “If I Were A Boy” Beyoncé mixes feminine and masculine in a leather look custom designed by Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy.

The jumpsuit, coined ‘BBB17’ by Tisci and his team for the inscription embroidered on the back of the look, is worn with the front unzipped.

Riccardo elaborates on the inspiration behind the jumpsuit saying, “she wears a bra and panties but she has a masculine boxy leather jumpsuit on top. Everything is so versatile about her. […] So we played with that, we added masculine to feminine. She is all about paradox. She is an entertainer and a mother, she is strong and sweet and we wanted the clothes to feel that way too.”

The singer posted details on her Resentment/Love on Top outfit on Beyonce.com:

During the On The Run Tour, Beyoncé takes the stage to perform ‘Resentment’ and ‘Love on Top’ wearing a bridal-themed look from Lebanese designer Elie Saab.

The Jasmine white long-sleeve lace-embellished jumpsuit features a Chantilly lace construction and formfitting silhouette. The jumper is a piece from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

The next stop on the On the Run Tour was Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia on July 15.


On Friday, the couple performed at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. Before the concert, Beyonce encouraged her fans to participate in a food drive, which qualified them for a chance to win pit tickets to the show. Read more about the action and check out pictures from the donation site at Beyonce.com.

Following Diesel’s colossal return to the runway earlier this year with new creative director Nicola Formichetti at the helm, Diesel’s team was called in to provide a few looks for the On The Run Tour.

Formichetti first worked with Beyoncé in 2010 during the video production of Lady Gaga’s “Telephone,” but this time around the inspiration came from a different place.

“When we embarked upon this exciting project our main aim was to showcase her strength, her sexiness and her power as a female of modern day,” Formichetti says of the designs. “Taking inspiration from her amazing videos combined with the Bonnie a Clyde style show, it was very important for us to create something modern that was true to her and true to Diesel.”

While the denim’s presence was played up with the shorts in the look, the leather Texas jacket took on a life of its own.

“We were inspired by the biker gangs that developed in the United States after World War II. The bikers would personalize their jackets with tokens of their travels and memorabilia to remind them of home. Beyoncé’s jacket proudly displays her home state of TEXAS on the back as a reminder of her roots. There are hints of blue paint hidden on the jacket as an ode to her daughter Blue Ivy. We loved the idea that no matter where Beyoncé travels to she will always have a piece of home.”

Putting Texas on the back of Beyoncé’s jacket took 4-5 hours. Read more...

P.S. Today I'm going on vacation so the website won't be updated for a week. As always, all the missing news and pictures will be added as soon as I get back!
During the latest On The Run Tour stop in Baltimore, Beyoncé revealed a new look to the show’s wardrobe lineup, pulling in her third piece from Project Runway alum Michael Costello.

Worn during the performance of ‘Single Ladies,’ Beyoncé revisited a leotard for the song in a delicate black and gold lace bodysuit by the designer. Costello elaborated on his inspiration for look saying, “I wanted Beyoncé to feel beautiful, strong, super sexy and ventilated. I thought, ‘If I was Beyoncé how would I want to look and feel.’ I didn’t want her to feel overheated like she was in armor or too hot on stage during her performance. I wanted to create something very free and easy to dance in all while being sexy.

How she feels in my clothes is important to me. I was inspired by the ‘Single Ladies’ video and how she looked on there.”

While the look is undoubtedly a stunner, it is one that came together rather quickly. “I had to create a look fast and Ty encouraged me, he said he didn’t want me to miss out on this opportunity. I made the look in two hours. I had that fabric for a long time and I wanted to use it specifically for Beyoncé. I did a cut out lace and created exactly what I envisioned. The back has a beautiful detail with a black and gold zipper,” Said Costello.

While the inspiration for each look of Costello’s Beyoncé wears may differ, the end goal is always the same to the designer, “I just always want Beyoncé to feel confident, free and beautiful in my clothes.”
ON THE RUN TOUR: BEYONCÉ AND JAY Z, featuring the superstars in their first collaborative tour – and their first HBO concert event – will debut in September, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Taping September 12 and 13 at Stade de France in Paris on the only international leg of their current tour, the special will feature the superstars performing more than 40 songs.

“This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO,” noted Lombardo. “It’s going to be a night to remember.”

Although 17-time Grammy winner Beyoncé and 19-time Grammy winner JAY Z have recorded numerous hit songs together, including “Crazy in Love” and “Drunk in Love,” and have been special guests on each other’s tours, ON THE RUN TOUR: BEYONCÉ AND JAY Z marks the first time the married couple has toured together on the same bill. The tour covers 19 stadiums in the U.S. and two stadium shows in Paris.

USA Today said of the tour, which began June 26 in Miami, “The coordination is not just remarkable, it’s the absolute best way that two of the world’s best performers can deliver a show that proves why they are on top together,” while the New York Times hailed it as “a show that acknowledged their two very different sorts of success without diminishing either one.”

Beyoncé is currently appearing on HBO in “BEYONCÉ: X10,” a ten-episode series of concert performances debuting Sunday nights before “True Blood”; she was previously seen on the network in the intimate feature-length documentary “Life Is But a Dream,” which debuted in Feb. 2013. JAY Z’s “Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film” had its world premiere on HBO in Aug. 2013.
During the second half of the On The Run show, Beyoncé’s wardrobe makes a switch from the mesh masks and bodysutits of designers like Versace and Michael Costello in favor of an all black look from New York City-based designer Alexander Wang.

The Alexander Wang look is a riff off of an urban bomber hoodie jacket that was cropped to expose a bondage bodysuit underneath that has graphic cutouts. When worn up, the oversized hood covers the face, adding an incognito element reminiscent of the On The Run theme.

According to the brand, the materials used for the pieces include a 3-D sport mesh, compact bondage leather and an exotic snake—all in shades of black to create a slick urban feel.

Both the bomber jacket and the bodysuit required intensive handwork. The bomber sleeves have exotic snake skin seamed into the aero foam mesh strip-by-strip, and the bodysuit has a custom-made nylon ladder embroidery which gives the visual illusion of sheer cutouts and is seamed in piece-by-piece to the leather.
After opening the On The Run Tour alongside Jay Z in a black netted bodysuit by Versace, Beyoncé enlisted the designer for a second look featuring their iconic logo on a fully embellished long-sleeve bodysuit.

Versace spoke of the inspiration behind the custom wardrobe piece saying, “we looked to the street for color and vitality. We came back with iconic Versace prints embellished with crystals and see-through tracksuits with Swarovski stripes, for a baseball vibe.”

As for Versace’s ultimate goal, aside from making a tour piece that could withstand the movement of performance, a rep from the brand says, “We wanted to capture the energy and coolness that is Beyoncé.”
