Beyonce & Jay-Z to Headline Global Citizen Festival

July 10, 2018


Beyonce, Jay-Z and Ed Sheeran will headline a special Global Citizen Festival in honor of Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Dec. 2. The concert, which will be held at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of the anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner, organizers announced early Monday. Mandela died in 2013.

Others performing at the festival include Usher, Eddie Vedder, a joint set from Pharrell Williams and Coldplay’s Chris Martin, and African artists including Wizkid, Cassper Nyovest and Femi Kuti.

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.

Beyoncé's Choreographers Talk Coachella

May 3, 2018

Since November, Chris Grant and JaQuel Knight have been up to their elbows in marching bands, musicians and dancers — dozens of men and women from an array of traditions.

Beyoncé may have been front and center at her spectacular Coachella performances last month. But two of her secret weapons were Mr. Grant and Mr. Knight, the show’s main choreographers.

From the start Beyoncé was clear about what she wanted. “She said, ‘Let’s do a homecoming,’” Mr. Knight said. “Boom. A nice, clear concept that we were all able to snap into and execute.”

In the nearly two-hour performance, references to homecoming at historically black colleges and universities (H.B.C.U.s) — complete with a marching band and a glittering majorette solo — lived alongside dance styles ranging from flexing, a form born on the streets of Brooklyn, to stepping, a percussive form popular in fraternities and sororities.

Beginning in December, Mr. Grant and Mr. Knight worked with Beyoncé’s music team and started their preliminary dance preparations. By January, they started skeleton-crew rehearsals. “We worked with 12 dancers for a month just to start to further develop the ideas that we laid down in December,” Mr. Knight said. “We started to build choreography.”

Michelle Williams Talks Beyonce's Coachella Performance

April 29, 2018

Michelle Williams knows how to keep a secret. “We’re the secret queens,” the singer tells Billboard in the wake of performing two consecutive weekends at Coachella with headliner Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. The trio, who rose to commercial acclaim in the late ‘90s and early aughts as Destiny’s Child, had been keeping the surprise under wraps since February, when Bey reached out to her former band members and asked them to join her for a medley of their mega-hits including “Say My Name,” “Lose My Breath” and “Soldier.”

“It’s just like old girlfriends coming together,” explains the 37-year-old, who last reunited as Destiny’s Child at the 2015 Stellar Awards where they performed her upbeat gospel single “Say Yes.” “It’s something that when the three of us come together, we all know we feel safe within each other. Like I got your back. We’re good. I really love that about us.”

Since Destiny’s Child went on hiatus in the wake of their last album, 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled, Williams hasn’t slowed. She’s put out four solo full-lengths including her final release, 2014’s Journey to Freedom (which won’t be her last); starred on stage as leads in Chicago and Aida; launched her own furniture and candle line Believe by Michelle; and, more recently, got engaged to pastor Chad Johnson just prior to her Coachella performance. Still teeming with excitement from the pair of shows, Williams explains how it all came together.

There were rumors before Coachella that a Destiny’s Child reunion might happen. How did the conversations begin for this? Did Beyoncé call you and just say, “It’s time?”

Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival - Weekend 2

April 22, 2018

Beyoncé returned to Coachella last night for the second weekend—and her second performance as headliner. The performance wasn't streamed this time, and despite an initial announcement, SiriusXM radio's live stream didn't include her set.

Visually the show was refreshed, with Beyoncé and her 100 dancers and band members washed in shades of magenta and virtually every ensemble the singer wore was swapped out for a new look.

The set-list, however, remained untouched and she was again joined by husband Jay-Z, former Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as well as her sister Solange Knowles. There was an extra surprise, as the singer was also joined by J. Balvin for a quick run of "Mi Gente."

Beyoncé's Coachella merchandise collection was expanded with two new items, which are now available on the Coachella Pop-Up Store website.

Beyonce's Second Coachella Weekend Performance Won't Be Streamed

April 19, 2018

Confirmed: Beychella’s second weekend won’t feature the exact same iconic set we saw before. Backup dancer Jo’Artis Mijo Ratti told Variety that the team is “switching up a couple things, so there could still be a wow factor.” The bad news: Beyoncé’s second Coachella set this weekend won’t stream on YouTube, nor are there plans to re-air it. However, members of the Beyhive can live-stream the audio for Weekend 2 on SiriusXM’s Coachella Radio.

Beyonce's Coachella Performance Broke YouTube Viewing Record

April 18, 2018

As arguably one of the best live shows of recent times, Beyoncé's Coachella performance broke a major viewing record on YouTube during its live stream on Saturday, April 14. According to a press release, this year's Coachella was reportedly the festival's biggest to date, bringing over 41 million live views from fans in 232 countries over the weekend. Beyoncé's Saturday stage show alone garnered 458K simultaneous viewers around the world, making her awe-inspiring presentation the most viewed Coachella performance of all time, as well as the most viewed live music festival ever on YouTube.

Amidst the performance, Beyoncé became the first black woman to ever headline Coachella in its nearly 20-year history, and she absolutely made it a point to use the platform to showcase all of the beauty of her roots throughout the entire history-making night. Making mention of the monumental moment, Beyoncé spoke to the audience, saying, “Thank you Coachella for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline."

Beyonce's Mom 'Stands Corrected' After Questioning Bey's Coachella Vision

April 17, 2018

Beyoncé's mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, knew her daughter would perform a headlining set for the ages at Coachella, but she was unsure as to how the performance would be received.

Now, she's admitting that she "stands corrected," as a revealing conversation with the pop star showed her how important it was for her to stick to her vision.

Lawson shared part of an intimate conversation between her and Beyoncé about the historic Coachella set, which drew inspiration from the marching bands, step teams and dance crews of HBCU, or Historically Black Colleges and Universities. "I told Beyoncé that i was afraid that the predominately white audience at Coachella would be confused by all of the black culture and Black college culture because it was something that they might not get," she writes.

"Her brave response to me made me feel a bit selfish and ashamed. She said 'I have worked very hard to get to the point where I have a true voice and at this point in my life and my career I have a responsibility to do whats best for the world and not what is most popular.'"

She went on to point out that Bey's mission was to unite the audience at Coachella and encourage understanding, even if they weren't familiar with HBCU: "She said that her hope is that after the show young people would research this culture and see how cool it is, and young people black and white would listen to 'LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING' and see how amazing the words are for us all and bridge the gap."

"She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our amazing Historically Black Colleges and Universities," Lawson continued. "I stand corrected ❤️"

Olivier Rousteing on Dressing Beyoncé in Balmain for Coachella 2018

April 15, 2018

It all started when stylist Marni Senofonte approached Olivier Rousteing after his Fall 2018 runway show for Balmain and explained to him that she was trying to find the right designer to create custom looks for Beyoncé’s upcoming Coachella performances. “Marni told me that the shows were all about survivors and that B was looking for something in a military style,” Rousteing says. “Our silhouettes and our sort of Mad Max, futuristic take on military looks for Fall were a perfect fit.” But, of course, Queen Bey was not about to wear something that was going to be mass-produced, so Rousting went to work with Senofonte and the rest of Beyoncé’s team to create two custom Balmain stage wardrobes, one for each of her performances tonight and next Saturday night. Rousteing also dressed the 200-some dancers on stage, as well as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, who reunited with Beyoncé for a Destiny’s Child throwback moment. Rousteing only had a few weeks to pull it all together, spending sleepless nights and long days creating the Egyptian-inspired gold-and-black cape with intricate embellishments; as well as a hologram-fabric black jacket and bodysuit; a collegiate-style embellished yellow hoodie with “BAE” written on the front; a camouflage and mesh minidress; and a top decorated with a 2018 Beyoncé crest that shows a bee, a raised fist, a panther, and an Egyptian goddess. “By the end it felt like Marni and I were in a relationship,” the designer said with a laugh. “We went to bed texting and emailing one another and woke up doing the same.”

Beyoncé to reunite with Destiny's Child at Coachella?

April 14, 2018

Buzz that Beyoncé will reunite with Destiny’s Child at Coachella has come and gone — but a music insider tells Page Six, “It’s on!”

Jack White Created an Alternate Version of 'Daddy Lessons'

March 12, 2018

In the most recent Rolling Stone cover story, former White Stripes frontman Jack White revealed the existence of an unreleased version of Beyonce’s “Daddy Lessons.”

White spoke openly of his collaborations with Beyonce, saying the two were supposed to take to Saturday Night Live to perform "Don't Hurt Yourself" -- the searing cut from Lemonade that explicitly referred to Jay-Z’s infidelity, laced with White's cryptic guitar keys -- though the plan never came to fruition.

He also revealed another unreleased collab with Queen Bey, saying the singer had requested an (even more) country-inspired version of “Daddy Lessons,” citing blues musician Seasick Steve as the alternate arrangement’s inspiration. White was impressed by the request, but his version of the song remained unused on Lemonade.

Jay Z's Tidal is ready to make a splash in the live music space.

The streaming service is gearing up for its first-ever concert event, dubbed TIDAL X: 1020, with an all-star lineup of more than 17 artists including Beyonce, Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, Usher, Prince, Lil Wayne, T.I., Fabolous, Damien Marley, Thomas Rhett and more. The event is set for Oct. 20 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Tickets, which will range from $74 to $244, will go on sale for Tidal members on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 12 p.m. ET, and for the general public on Friday, Oct. 2 at 12 p.m. ET. All funds collected from ticket sales will be administered by New World Foundation on behalf of Tidal.

According to the organization's website, New World Foundation builds partnerships with philanthropic allies who "value the essential truth that the people who suffer injustice are crucial to overcoming it."

An insider at the event echoes that all proceeds will "benefit nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing positive community relations and effecting systemic change for the development and sustainability of just societies, this inaugural event's philanthropic focus."

Fans who can't make it to the show in Brooklyn will be able to watch the whole thing streaming live on Tidal, for both members and non-members of the service, free of charge -- though viewers can make donations while watching the livestream.

We got an exclusive tip that Beyonce is going to perform at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival, which will be held on September 26 on the Great Lawn in New York City. The singer will perform alongside Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Pearl Jam. The news is supposed to be announced on Thursday so we'll have to wait until then for the official confirmation. If you want to use this information, please credit BeyonceOnline.org.
Beyoncé and the Weeknd will headline the lineup for Jay Z's fourth annual Budweiser Made in America festival, which will return to Philadelphia the Labor Day weekend of September 5th. Also on board to perform at the fest are J. Cole, De La Soul, Axwell & Ingrosso, Nick Jonas, Bassnectar, Big Sean, Earl Sweatshirt, Meek Mill, Banks, Vic Mensa, Santigold and more. A ticket pre-sale for the festival starts Thursday, June 25th at 10:00 am EDT at www.ticketmaster.com. The general public can purchase their tickets on Monday, June 29th at 12:00 p.m. EDT.

This is the first year that the Made in America fest doesn't have a rock act in a headlining slot. While all genres of music are represented, the 2015 lineup leans heavily on hip-hop and R&B. However, plenty of rockers will still take the stage at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, including Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, Metric, Waxahatchee and Strands of Oak.

The Made in America performance marks Beyoncé's second time headlining her husband's festival; she previously appeared at the 2013 fest. Other acts performing at the 2015 fest are A-Trak, Action Bronson, Fabolous, DJ Mustard, G-Eazy, Flatbush Zombies, Duke Dumont, Halsey and Ryan Hemsworth. Check out the Made in America site for the complete lineup.

After two years in Philadelphia, the Made in America festival went bi-coastal in 2014, adding a Los Angeles event for the same weekend as the annual Philly get-together. However, the fest failed to have a similar impact on the West Coast as it does in the East and plans for a follow-up MIA LA fest were scrapped earlier this month.
In celebration of Stevie Wonder's birthday, a behind the scenes video from Beyoncé's performance at the "Songs In The Key Of Life" Grammy tribute was uploaded to Tidal.


The singer also created a special playlist with her favorite songs by Stevie:

"Stevie’s music resonates like none other. There’s no better way to honor him on his birthday than to share some of my favorite Stevie classics. Happy Birthday Stevie!"
