Beyonce Ruled New York in ‘4’ Concert Debut Performance
R&B queen Beyonce kicked off the first of four nights in her sold-out concert series, '4 Intimate Nights with Beyoncé,' on Sunday (Aug. 14) and wowed New York City audiences with a spectacular stage show.
Backed by a 20-piece all-female band and orchestra, Bey-Bey enthralled the crowd with a medley of hits from her chart-busting new LP '4.' "I just want to have a good time with y'all," Beyonce said before launching into her 90-minute show with a cover of Michael Jackson's 'I Wanna Be Where You Are.'
Among the songs Beyoncé performed from '4' include '1+1,' 'Best Thing I Never Had,' 'Countdown,' 'I Care,' 'Party' and the ubiquitous hit single, 'Run the World (Girls).' The R&B songbird also ran through some oldies but goodies, including 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It),' 'Irreplaceable' and 'Crazy in Love.'
