The closing of Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter Show World Tour was a bittersweet moment for the international superstar.
After about a year on the Road, Yonce wrapped the successful trek at the MEO Arena in Lisbon, Portugal on Thursday (Mar 27) by giving an emotional speech and thanking all the people who came out to support her.
"I want a spotlight. I want them to see me. If you all don't know, tonight makes 132 shows. Tonight is the last show of the Mrs. Carter Show,” the 32-year-old entertainer said as the crowd cheered. “We started a year ago and I want to say this has been such a journey. In the past year, we've been through so much together. The Super Bowl, shooting the videos, all of these shows. When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking yet. I just want you to know that I am so lucky."
With the tears coming, Bey adds: "I'm giving y'all an ugly cry. Thank y'all again. Thank you for allowing me to have a career. And when I fall, you lift me up. When I'm hungry, you feed me. And I just want to give you my light. I dedicate this song to you."
Following her speech, Beyoncé dedicated her next song, "XO," to her adoring fans (Beyhive).
The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour kicked off last April and played on the continents of North America, Europe, South America and Australia.
