Beyonce & Jay-Z Kick Off The ‘On The Run II’ Tour In Cardiff, Wales: 9 Pics

Music’s power couple are back in action. Last night (June 6), Beyonce and Jay-Z kicked off their On The Run II Tour with a set in Cardiff, Wales. Since announcing the show back in March, it has been one of the most anticipated concerts of the year. It will see them travel across Europe for a string of performances in cities including London, Rome and Paris before heading back to North America for 21 additional shows. This marks the duo’s second joint outing since 2014’s On The Run Tour, and the production has been described as a “celebration of love, family and culture.” All things considered, it looks like they have also delivered a seriously hit-filled setlist.

They got the night started by teaming up for a remix of “Magna Carta Holy Grail” and “Part II (On The Run)” from Jay’s 2013 opus. They also treated fans to a live rendition of the song that started it all: “‘03 Bonnie & Clyde.” After sharing the stage on a handful of other duets and remixes including Bey’s “Drunk In Love,” the pair took turns working through some of their biggest hits. The “99 Problems” rapper touched on defining anthems that spanned his impressive career. Meanwhile, Bey did the same. After stealing the show at Coachella, she showed love to timeless hits including “Naughty Girl” and “Baby Boy” while also revisiting more recent cuts from her blockbuster Lemonade. She capped off the night by belting out her last chart-topper, a remix of Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect,” before she and Jay ended the evening with “Young Forever.”

After wrapping up the European leg, Bey and Jay will touch down in North America. They are scheduled to perform their first show in Cleveland, Ohio on July 25. From there they will be on the road through October, and they will perform the final show in Vancouver on October 2.
