Today E is for edges. As in Beyoncé snatched every last curly, wannabe baby hair that makes up my edges!
I attended the last leg of the Formation Tour in Philadelphia last night and got my entire life. Beyoncé is such an amazing performer with a strong portfolio of songs that you can only expect nothing but the best.
Of course it was raining cats and dogs but that didn’t put a damper on the show. My friends and I managed to snag great seats for an extremely reasonable price. We were right on the field; close enough to be splashed by water during “Freedom” but not a part of the BeyHive sadly :/
DJ Khaled opened up with a short (and I mean really short) mix of songs that he produced as well as some classics like Tupac and Biggie.
After waiting almost an hour the Queen finally took the stage. She opened with Formation but the show was far more than a mix of Lemonade. She took us back down memory lane with songs like Kitty Kat, Partition, and Bootylicious. She also sung a heartfelt version of Survivor acknowledging all of her fans who have survived anything such as racism, sexism, or diseases.
Everything about the show was perfect. From her all female band to the dancers and outfits to the visuals to an acrobatic dancer twirling in background.
One of the major moments of the show that stuck out to me is when Bey referenced the audience saying,
“Ladies, when you’re born you’re born strong. There’s no such thing as a weak woman.”
Seeing Beyoncé perform was on my bucket list and I’m so glad I got in Formation because the experience was well worth 4 hours in the rain.
