I’m a Texas native,” the music legend gently reminded her fans during her performance at AT&T Stadium as part of her Renaissance World Tour.
She’s truly one of a kind — the ultimate number one!
On Thursday, Beyoncé made a triumphant return to her native Texas for the Arlington leg of her Renaissance World Tour.
“It feels incredibly wonderful to be back home,” the 42-year-old Grammy winner shared with the audience in the Dallas area at AT&T Stadium. The crowd erupted into thunderous applause as she kicked off the show with her 2003 hit “Dangerously in Love,” punctuating her sentiment with, “I’m a proud Texas girl.”
Shortly after, she enthusiastically declared, “Tonight is going to be an exceptional night.”
Indeed, it was an unforgettable night for this editor, who had the privilege of watching the show from the renowned AT&T suite at AT&T Stadium.
Throughout the evening, Queen Bey masterfully transformed the venue into a vibrant nightclub (complete with a mirrorball!) as she navigated an extensive setlist primarily focused on her adored 2022 dance album, Renaissance. While she dazzled the audience with most of the album’s tracks, blending elements of disco, house, and ballroom beats, Beyoncé also treated her fans to a remarkable selection of hits from her illustrious career, including “Formation,” “Run the World (Girls),” “Crazy in Love,” and “Naughty Girl.”
In a heartwarming moment, Beyoncé continued her tradition of inviting special guests to share the stage with her in Arlington, and this time, it was her 11-year-old daughter, whom she proudly introduced as “the legendary Blue Ivy Carter.” Blue joined Bey’s dancers on stage, dancing along to tunes like “My Power,” “Black Parade,” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright,” all while her dad, JAY-Z, watched from the audience.
Before concluding the show with “Summer Renaissance” — the euphoric album finale that samples Donna Summer’s legendary disco anthem “I Feel Love” — Beyoncé expressed her gratitude to the AT&T Stadium audience for their “heartwarming Southern hospitality.”
But Bey’s homecoming festivities are far from over. This weekend, she will make her way back to her hometown of Houston to perform two consecutive shows at NRG Stadium.
Since kicking off the Renaissance World Tour in May, Beyoncé has left an indelible mark, setting numerous records, including achieving the highest one-month gross in the history of Billboard Boxscore, with an astonishing $127.6 million earned in July.
