Beyoncé left stunned after asking UK audience to sing Love On Top
| Last updated
Queen of Pop Beyoncé was completely shocked by the way the crowd in Cardiff sang along to her hit song 'Love On Top'.
On Wednesday night (17 May), thousands of fans attended the Principality Stadium to witness Queen B take the stage.
It was the first UK date of her Renaissance World Tour and fans were certainly more than up for it.
The show itself included video projections and animations, as well as robotic devices, silver moon rovers and pyrotechnics, plus multiple outfit changes.
While performing her latest tracks from last year’s Renaissance album - such as 'Break My Soul' and 'Cuff It' - she also played the classics, including 2011's 'Love On Top'.
And it's fair to say that the tour has been a hit with fans so far.
Nicola Stacey Jones, 54, from Risca in Wales, told PA that Beyoncé’s voice was 'like velvet'.
“The atmosphere is electrifying, the music is vibrating around the stadium so your heart bounces. Beyonce is pitch perfect with moves to match,” she said.
“It’s one of those tick box… mind-blowing, memorable moments – I was there sort of thing.”
Sian Blackham, 44, added: “I’m a huge Beyoncé fan and have loved her since her career took off with Destiny’s Child.
“I’m with my best friend, goddaughter and her auntie. This is our fourth time seeing Beyoncé together, the first since the pandemic.
“We feel so lucky to be at her first show in the UK and I’m super grateful to my best friend and goddaughter who secured the tickets – no easy feat.”
I mean, the surprise here is not that fans enjoyed the concert - but rather that Beyoncé herself was just as surprised at how engaged the crowd was.
As the audience sang along to 'Love On Top', the 41-year-old looked absolutely 'shook' at the response.
Her reaction could quite possibly be meme of the year, so far.
"That look says 'finally they're awake'," one TikTok viewer commented, while another added: "So many memes are gonna come from the tour lmaooo."
"The competition has finally started," a third wrote.
The Renaissance World Tour, which was announced back in February, is Beyoncé’s first in seven years, with her last tour, The Formation World Tour, taking place in 2016.
She is due to perform at other UK venues including London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Murrayfield in Edinburgh and Sunderland’s Stadium of Light.
After kicking off the tour in Stockholm, Sweden, she welcomed fans 'to the Renaissance'.
Forbes had previously estimated that the tour could earn the 'Crazy in Love' singer more than £1.6 billion.
