Last night the (worst kept) secret gig of the year took place. Beyoncé showcased songs from her forthcoming album, 4, in an hour long set at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire. We were lucky enough to get invited to this intimate gig for fans, press and all her celebrity, A list fans, including husband Jay-Z, BBF Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessie J, Adele, Tinie Tempah, Stella McCartney, Paloma Faith, Tom Ford, Alison Mosshart and several members of the Glee crew!
The crowd was in a frenzy about all the celeb guests, and the A-listers got huge cheers as they took their seats. Adele and Jessie J received huge cheers and chatted away like old friends. Jay-Z rocked up with Gwyneth Paltrow, who sent the crowd into overdrive when she started taking photos of them!
Beyoncé looked amazing in a fringed, flapper style yellow dress, complemented by her equally colourful dancers and her all-girl backing singers and band. She was, of course, 10/10 and still on a high from her huge success at Glastonbury. She had us bopping away (and of course singing) all night.
Beyoncé did several covers, including a brilliant version of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, a Prince classic and Kings of Leon’s Sex on Fire. We also heard tracks from her brand new album, 4, and Beyoncé classics, like Single Ladies, Halo and Irreplaceable (which we even have a little video off!).
If it’s possible, we love Beyonce even more now!
