Making sure that no one follows her and Jay-Z at the end of the show, the pop superstar abruptly looks back while walking off stage.
Beyonce Knowles made sure that nobody would rush the stage at her concert anymore. During the second night of her and Jay-Z‘s “On the Run II Tour” Atlanta stop, the pop superstar jokingly warned concertgoers not to follow them off the stage. The epic moment was captured by one attendee who posted the clip on social media.
In the clip, Bey was seen expressing her gratitude to the crowd towards the end of the show, which took place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. “Give it up for yourselves for being a beautiful audience. God bless you guys. Drive home safe,” she said, before walking off stage while holding hands with her rapper husband.
Making sure that no one followed them this time, the “Halo” singer abruptly looked back at the audience and gave them a cheeky smile. She then jokingly kicked the air in order to fend off any concertgoers who planned to crash the stage. Watching his wife’s goofy act, Jay couldn’t help but laugh beside her.
It’s not surprising that Bey did such a thing considering that one fan rushed the stage on the first night of the couple’s Atlanta stop. Bey and Jay were performing their final song “Apes**t” when 26-year-old Anthony Charles Thomas Maxwell ran onto the stage and attempted to follow the couple as they walked off. Backup dancers and security quickly sprung into action before things got worse.
Anthony was initially cited for disorderly conduct and released. However, officers were able to gather evidence and discovered that the man made contact with Jay. Thus, police later secured warrants to add additional charges of simple battery.
Bey and Jay are scheduled to continue their tour in Orlando on August 28 before heading to Miami for a show on August 31. “On the Run II Tour” will conclude in Seattle on October 4.
