Minnesotans react to spectacular Beyoncé, Jay-Z show at U.S. Bank Stadium

The megastar – and her husband – wowed with their On the Run II Tour.
Publish date:

In case you didn't know, Wednesday was "Beyoncé and Jay-Z Day" in Minnesota – by governor's proclamation.

The musical power couple played before a massive crowd at U.S. Bank Stadium, the latest stop on their On the Run II Tour.

And those in attendance certainly got their money's worth, with the Carters performing a sprawling setlist of more than 40 songs that featured a variety of their own individual hits as well as some of their collaborative efforts.

This included stops at Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love" and Jay-Z's "99 Problems" on a spectacular stage featuring a giant, NFL field-wide screen, a huge band and a cabal of dancers.

The Pioneer Press' Ross Raihala described the show as "dazzling," albeit marred slightly once again by U.S. Bank Stadium's acoustical limitations.

Go Radio's Chaz Kangas meanwhile described it as the "absolutely perfect show."

Some of the tens of thousands in attendance meanwhile have been sharing their experiences on social media – after they got over the devastating news that one of the opening acts, DJ Khaled, wasn't able to make it.
