Huge Personal Memory
Do we really need to explain? This is one of those moments you want to tell your kids or grand kids about. These two may never tour again so this is an event you need to soak up in its entirety.
Epic Moment in Music
Jay and Kanye West / Jay and Justin Timberlake were huge tours but this will be bigger! Beyonce and Jay Z are two of the biggest artists in their respective genres (If not the biggest). Having them both on the same bill is an epic moment for music and fans. These two are trailblazers and trendsetters, so it is only right that they come together for their legion of fans.
Chemistry On Stage
With notable duets like "03 Bonnie & Clyde," "Upgrade You," "Déjà Vu," "Crazy In Love," "Drunk In Love," and "Part II (On the Run)," we're sure these two will heat up the stage when they perform as a duo. If you need a reminder, check their Grammy Awards opener from earlier this year. It will be sexy and classy and the same damn time!
