PARIS (AP) – An emotional Beyonce was in tears as she and husband Jay Z wrapped up their “On the Run” stadium tour Saturday night in Paris, where the duo said they got engaged years ago.
The performers told the audience at Stade de France that Paris was also where their 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, was conceived.
“We love Paris. It’s special to us because we got engaged here and this is where baby Blue was conceived,” the rap star said.
Beyonce and Jay Z were married in 2008.
Nicki Minaj joined Beyonce onstage for their collaboration, “Flawless”, which excited the crowd of nearly 80,000. Beyonce and Jay Z off kicked the three-hour show with “’03 Bonnie & Clyde.” They also performed the hits “Crazy In Love,” “Single Ladies”, “Big Pimpin”, “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” and “Drunk In Love”.
“I’m your biggest fan. I love you,” a teary eyed Beyonce, 33, said looking to Jay Z, 44. He replied: “Greatest entertainer in the world. I love her. She’s my wife.”
The Saturday night concert mirrored the sentiments from last month’s MTV Video Music Awards, where a teary Beyonce was joined onstage by Jay Z and Blue Ivy, amid the numerous rumours surrounding their marriage.
The Paris show was being filmed for an HBO special to air in September. The duo also performed Friday in Paris.
Beyonce and Jay Z kicked off the “On the Run” tour in June.
