Beyonce, Jay-Z fans gather at U.S. Bank Stadium to celebrate 'The Carters'
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KMSP) - Thousands of fans filed into U.S. Bank Stadium to see Beyonce and Jay-Z together on stage as “The Carters.”
The fans weren’t just there for some vicarious couple’s therapy. They’re also here to honor what “The Carters“ represent. The nickname stems from Jay-Z's birth name Shawn Carter.
Fans were dressed to the nines, like Justina Brouse Grassrope, who said, “We all got to look flawless, I mean, It’s B.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z fans travel from far and wide, too, with Jana Leigh Brouse traveling about six hours.
Many were excited to see The Carters at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
“This is the first time I’m seeing her live so I’m super excited,” said Fouad El Hamdouni.
The power couple even earned a nod from Gov. Mark Dayton, who proclaimed Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018 as Beyonce and Jay-Z day in Minnesota.
The stop marks one of the Carters’ 36 shows on their “On The Run Part 2” world tour.
Fouad El Hamdouni said, “I’m glowing before coming in. So, I don’t know how I’m going to come out.”
The excitement also fueled by the Carters’ surprise June release of their joint album “Everything is Love.”
Since their marriage in 2008, it’s through their music the two opened up about finding true love, raising a family and surviving infidelity.
“I am totally expecting those two just to be in love on the stage and show everybody that you know what, there’s hard times in every relationship, it don’t matter, celebrity or not,” said Jana Leigh Brouse. “Things happen. You’re only human.”
“They all did my hair last night up until 2:30 a.m. in the middle of the night,” said Leigh Brouse. “We got it done. I’m Gucci!”
For Jana Leigh Brouse, the concert is a celebration of sorts, saying, “We’re celebrating me being single.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s tunes are highlights, in the soundtrack of her life.
“I ain’t sorry,” said Jana Leigh Brouse. “Hell no. “Chucking up the deuces!”
