Beyonce – Formation Concert Review (Wembley Stadium)

On the 2nd and 3rd July Beyonce made history, she became the youngest female artist to sell out Wembley Stadium and she packed the 90,000 seater stadium out two days in a row. I managed to get myself a last minute ticket to the show and was certainly not disappointed. Queen Bee absolutely smashed it.

She opened the show with her hit single Formation and gave an explosive start to proceedings. Beyonce then mixed in her current songs from the latest album with some of her throwback records which had the crowd in raptures especially when she performed some of her old school Destiny’s Child songs. Beyonce than played a pre-recorded version of Purple Rain which was a very nice touch and had the whole crowd joining in on the anthem.

The Texan singer however has always prised herself on being a true entertainment and performer, the choreography was delivered to perfection and what impressed me the most was the graphics. I was stunned and wowed by the pre-recorded videos and how they seamlessly fitted into the show, especially the homemade video cut together which introduced Daddys Little Girl, it was definitely the best I’ve seen for a concert.

This was very emotional for the singer, who dreamed of selling out stadiums and gave an impromptu speech in between showing of her vocals during acapella performances. The ending however was amazing, dancing in a very shallow pool of water led to some amazing visuals whilst she was belting out Survivor towards the end and she closed the show with a monstrous version of Halo. Overall there is a reason why Beyonce is referred to as Queen Bee by her fans and is going to be considered as one of the best of our generation. It was an great show and everyone who I’ve spoken to about it had nothing but compliments for the singer and her show.
