The one and only Beyonce thread

Yes I know, this forum doesn't exactly fit the demographic of Beyonce's audience. There were some really old topics about her, but it didn't fit this news. But, she is still pretty popular and this news is worth sharing.



So she's following the same path as Taylor and releasing a concert film from her recent tour. I have a ticket for Taylor's upcoming concert movie release on the 13th. But, not sure I would be that interested in Beyonce.

I have all of Destiny's Child albums when she was much younger, but haven't really followed her solo career that much. I respect what she's accomplished over 20+ years.

My thoughts on the RENAISSANCE Tour last month :

Pretty cool show and packed, but not nearly as cool as Taylor Swift's show. Lots of costume changes, each with an extended pause. She is very beautiful, with an amazing voice and in unbelievable shape. Some cool spectacles, but man, she doesn't believe in playing the hits. No "Halo." No "Drunk In Love". No "Irreplaceable". No "If I Were a Boy". No "Single Ladies"! When they said it was the RENAISSANCE Tour, they weren't kidding!
I thought it was fine, pretty good actually. But nothing remarkable like the Eras Tour. Can't imagine it would have nearly as many tickets sold for a concert film, but it certainly could make some money if it came to theaters.

If you haven't seen it yet, Homecoming on Netflix, chronicling her Coachella shows, is seriously one of the greatest concert films since Stop Making Sense. Easily the best of the 21st Century. Will worth watching, even if you are only a casual fan.

Re: The one and only Beyonce thread

I just checked on Fandango and the Beyonce tickets are definitely not moving as fast as Taylor Swift on the 1st day of sales. There are still lots of seats left. I don't anticipate very high demand and judging by the trailer it's formatted more like a documentary than a concert.

On the other hand, my IMAX 6pm showing on the 13th at AMC for Taylor is completely sold out except maybe 5 handicap seats. It was sold out weeks ago.

Yeah, like I said, not nearly the same demand level.
The two films are almost exactly the same length but Beyoncé concert was about 45 minutes less (with much longer pauses between sets). So probably a lot of backstage stuff.

Her final show of the tour was here in KC a few nights ago. The traffic jam was so bad she delayed the show 2 hours.

Re: The one and only Beyonce thread

Beyoncé’s movie opens this week and ticket sales definitely appear really soft. I checked Fandango and a few local theaters near me have only a handful of night shows that have more than 60% of the seats sold. Mostly premium screens. Lots of seats available on other showings. One theater near me that is in a dead mall has 0 seats sold for the first 7pm show on Thursday. Sucks that this is eating up premium screens that could have gone to Godzilla minus one.

Taylor Swift returned the favor and showed up at the London premiere of Renaissance

Very, very, very cool indeed!


Here's the song, which is a banger.

That song is a crime agains music and humanity. Adding two terrible things together doesn't make them better. Beyonce and country music are both awful. That song makes those recent Guns N Roses songs seem like Blowing In The Wind or What's Going On.

I'm not sold on the Hold Em track at all, but I am psyched that Rhiannon Giddens -- who is AWESOME -- contributed the banjo to the song opening.

Re: The one and only Beyonce thread

The country album COWBOY CARTER is out. Working through it now.
Her cover of the Beatles "Blackbird" is gorgeous.
And I'm obsessed with her duet with Miley Cyrus, "II MOST WANTED". What a cool duet, with the two artists singing on top of each other for most of the song.

Those were both good, better than the single IMO.

Re: The one and only Beyonce thread

I'm still obsessed with that duet, it's the pinnacle of the album, but it does feel awfully similar to Landslide, especially the Dixie Chick's cover version. I hope there's not a lawsuit coming.
Edit : According to Wikipedia the song interpolates Landslide by Fleetwood Mac, so I assume it's been cleared legally. Cool because I love this single.
