The Carters Hit The Stage...And Put That Club Owner On Blast

Beyonce Sasha Fierce has just kicked off the U.S. leg of her "I Am" tour.  And this weekend she performed at Madison Square Garden...with a "surprise" appearance from her hubby Jay-Z:

Cute.  And Pappy Knowles has also blasted back at that M2 Ultra Lounge club owner who was threatening to sue Beyonce for not wanting to perform there this weekend as allegedly contracted.  The actual contract has made its way to the media, and it looks like the Knowles clan weren't the liars after all.  The club owner was.  Check out the contract here. It specifically states under the Terms that "artist shall not render performances of any kind (musical or otherwise) at the event."  Womp womp Mr. club owner.

ummm...really 200 grand for an 1 hour? that is fooolishness. in this economy? who the eff is beyonce helping with her music and I do like her music, so i'm not a hater, and my non hating now dumb ass actually paid to see her in concert. i'm STILL mad about that decision, even though she was a great performer, she should be shelling out free concerts if she's getting paid like that. rant over (from the post anyway) =)

I need for E!online to do better about posting their images. They didn't even bother to black out the banking information. I'm sure all the scammers have tried their best to get at some funds to no avail. LOL

JoJo: That’s a lot for the 400 section. Those were the tickets that were at the original $20 price. 400 section is the nose bleeds That's not true. The tickest only had two prices. I purchased my ticket in pre-sales and I was in section 95 for $175.00. There were no tickets in madiscon square going for twenty dollars. I know people want her to fail but she is too talented to let it go to waste. Thank you Bey, I loved your performance. Bey is for the grown and sexy.

love the stans: This is why I love the “stans”. Just went to Ticket Master tickets are available for Beyonces show today and pretty good sets. Its time to stop making excuses for this girl. Numbers don’t lie she can’t sell. Are you serious. I went to a sold out concert last night with screaming fans who stood up the entire show at MSG. I am sorry for all those who hate this girl but she is talented. She song with and without music. The entire performace was beautiful. The entire time I kept stating she is a bad bitch. She is talented more talented than those other girls to me. Bey you were absolutely phenomenal!!! I would have paid five hundred a ticket for that show. Thank You, I needed a performance like that in my life

I'm not a lawyer, but I DO

I'm not a lawyer, but I DO watch A LOT of Judge Judy!!...lol... I'm just curious to see a contract signed by BOTH PARTIES (i.e. the promoters AND Beyonce's team)... Matthew Knowles only released a "contract" signed by his team... In order for there to be a legally-binding contract, BOTH PARTIES HAVE TO SIGN IT!!! However, in the "contract" discussing Beyonce's terms, the promoters did NOT sign it!! Maybe Matthew is telling the truth this time, who knows?!! At the end of the day, if Beyonce did not show up at the club, she should give the money back!

I don't like the padding either it's drag queenish and she totally already has hips so it looks like a diaper from certain angles. I'm seeing my show tonight 7:30 @ Madison Square Garden and it's 12 of us in one row. We're excited to get our moneys worth. I hope Jay-z comes back tonight

sorry....still think the

sorry....still think the whole thing is a bunch of BS. If the event was called "I am Sasha Fierce kick off", why would Solange appear and perform...that isnt her tour. and then to pay Solange 50K to actually perform, but Bey gets 200K to appear....someones getting cheated. Poor Solange, she will never get a chance to shine if her own family gets her deals like that.

ITs only a tour, many will tour before and after Beyonce and outsale an Arena....its not that serious. Beyonce is doing nothing different from Britney Spears, Alicia Keys and others. Beyonce is a great performer but some sound like grade schoolers when they say "nah nah nah" sticking their tongues out taunting people.

Marquies: This is why I love the haters, last nights show was sold-out 20,000 seats, and tonight’s show is as well, beyonce’s tour manager already explained once a show is sold-out (like the 2nd show is) the day the concert is they release the last set of tickets that they keep until the actual concert and there usualluy great seats, and they charge more for them. but best believe by 8 tonight those tickets will be gone as well. STFU and sit down Yep! If I can't get good seats for a concert the day tix go on sale I usually wait till the day of the concert (works for most artists but only big venues)

Of course in the end the

Of course in the end the truth comes out. And people are still mad! ha. The show at MSG last night was beyond AMAZING! Beyonce's vocals were on point and the place was filled from the Diva zone seats all the way up to section 400 in MSG. It was crazy. The Crazy in Love segment was hot, because she did a mix of the song with Jays music, and then he came out. From the start of the show until the end she did not let up at all. I mean it would be hard to argue that Beyonce isn't the most talented, or "baddest in the game" whatever you want to call her, based off of the strength of that show alone. And the reviews show it. So ppl should def go out to see her show when she comes to your town. Especially those who are always lying on her talent, even you won't be disappointed. This lady is talented beyond words!! Also why would she push out babies at 27 when she's at the peak of her career and continuing to rise?? She can take a break when she wants, which I'm sure she will. But after being at the Garden last night, there was definitely no rush for her.

CHERYL: Beyonce Brings

CHERYL: Beyonce Brings Hits, Jay-Z to “I Am …” Tour Opener in New York Of all the one-name-required pop divas who launched big arena tours within the last three years, the most unknowable star is Beyoncé. There are of tabloid tales about Madonna, Britney, Mariah and Christina, but the onetime Destiny’s Child singer has mysteriously but impeccably carved out her own niche as a triple threat while hiding in broad spotlight. Perhaps that’s why she so strenuously emphasized the many dimensions of her identity at Madison Square Garden Sunday night, kicking off the U.S. leg of her “I Am …” tour in New York. The title could have been followed by a dozen sometimes conflicting terms — dancer, balladeer, street, classy, movie star, rock star, feminist, sex symbol, humble, proud, demure Beyoncé, fearless Sasha Fierce. Ultimately, though, she wanted to be consumed. “I am,” she said as the final notes rang out, “I am … yours.”Two hours earlier Beyoncé emerged alone in a gust of smoke. Giant black curtains parted and a single beam of light illuminated her silhouette, as though the heavens had opened and simply deposited her leggy figure there. Opener “Crazy in Love” had enough pomp and glitter to have been the encore, and as Jay-Z calmly strode onstage to join his wife for his verse, the Garden lit up with camera phones and genuine hysteria. Beyoncé pulled out the stops early and often, swinging her hair around wildly, falling to her knees and dancing hard enough for every move to be seen by fans in the $20 seats. She worked, and worked it relentlessly, never missing a note, a beat of choreography, or a chance to strike a pose, hold it, and be adored.She bent backwards at her guitarist’s feet during “Freakum Dress” and stood windblown atop the set’s biggest piece — a giant lighted — for “Smash Into You” from her recent movie Obsessed. Her white dress was transformed into a stunning during “Ave Maria,” which took a detour into Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel.” “If I Were a Boy” lifted a verse from Alanis Morissette’s biting “You Oughta Know” and heralded the arrival of her more ferocious onstage persona (in case the rocked out tune and red wasn’t a tip-off, a video interlude tracked a robot Beyonce’s interactions with a cheetah as a mechanical voice intoned “Sasha Fierce”). Thierry Mugler’s wardrobe designs put Beyoncé in a variety of gold sparkly , all form-fitting, light-reflecting and leg-baring. She later donned a gown for a torchy two-song display of vocal gymnastics on “At Last” and “Listen,” which could have been dubbed her coulda-shoulda Oscar interlude. But before she was refined, she was straight-up fierce: the fantastic “Radio” juxtaposed images of a five-year-old Beyoncé with the current-day version, which led to a brief speech that introduced “Me, Myself and I.” “I’m all about female empowerment,” Beyoncé simply stated. “We have to support each other, which is why all the musicians onstage are ladies. Give it up for my all-female band!” It wasn’t The Feminine Mystique, but it was more convincing than the girl-power show Gwen Stefani brought to the Garden a few years ago with her Harajuku Girls. After another wardrobe-change break, Beyoncé shot into the air, suspended by wires, and glided over the crowd to a smaller stage while completing some acrobatic flips to “Baby Boy.” Before a Destiny’s Child medley, she paused to speak to specific fans: “I see you in the yellow shirt,” she said, pointing out an audience member, “and I see you with the fringe dress.” She then sang a stripped-down “Irreplaceable,” putting aside the mic as the crowd handled the first verse and chorus without her. Seeing her fans — and making them feel acknowledged (particularly those who paid a pretty penny for front-row VIP packages) — was a major priority that reached its apex with an amusing montage of fan-made “Single Ladies” videos, which featured appearances by Web sensation Shane Mercado, Barack Obama and Justin Timberlake. After Beyoncé and her crew of dancers re-emerged to show everyone how it’s really done, she ended with ballad “Halo,” singing as she descended from the stage and shook hands with nearly every fan in the front rows. She thanked the crowd for a “wonderful first night in America,” then asked if anyone in the house was celebrating a birthday, serenading the arena with “Happy Birthday.” It was an odd way to break the momentum of the carefully plotted show, but it was a genuine moment, and her final gift of the night.ROLLINGSTONE REVIEW. GIRL PLEASE, AIN'T NOBODY GONNA READ YOUR LITERARY CLASSIC. GO ON WITH THAT BULLSHIT.
