Capital XTRA In The Morning With Jez Welham 6am - 10am
The possibility of Jay Z and Beyoncé bringing their rumoured collaborative tour to the UK is looking more and more likely. If it happens, there's no doubt it will be huge. But what can we actually expect from the show?
Jay Z's been known to take the tube when he's in London, and the two arrived to a party on New Years Eve on motorbike. Whatever they choose, it'll be something that gets everyones attention.
Including 'Upgrade U,' 'Deja Vu,' 'Crazy In Love,' 'Bonnie And Clyde,' 'Drunk In Love' and 'Part II (On The Run)'. It is a collaborative tour after all. But no doubt the two will also make time for their most-loved solo tracks.
Bey recently joined her sister on stage at Coachella for an amazing dance routine. A lot has happened since then, so could this be the Carter-Knowles family moment to prove that all is cushty at home?
Of course the superstars will sing their biggest hits, but what would be really incredible is if they mashed-up their biggest solo songs. Partition vs Tom Ford? Single Ladies vs Dirt Off Your Shoulder?
It's like a joint birthday birthday! Everyones friends are invited.
Both take time to make speeches and have often got emotional on their solo tours, so a joint-tour will no doubt bring up tons of emotionals that results in hugs and soppy speeches. We can't wait. Picture: Tumblr/I.am,Beyonce
It will be interesting to see how the stage show pans out as both usually give such different performances. Jay owns the stage but keeps it casual, while Bey is always highly choreographed. Remember their performance of 'Drunk In Love' at this year's Grammy awards? We think it'll go something like that.
Ok, matching outfits might be stretching it. But of course the couple, especially Jay, are close with the high end designer and are always spotted out wearing his gear. There's little doubt Mr Ford will be on hand to help out with the wardrobe.
The husband and wife have been together for years and almost always have a camera following them around. It would be a nice touch if they dug out some old and unseen footage and photographs to feature in the show's production.
Beyoncé and Jay Z like to party, so you can bet this tour will not be a 'sit down and wave your hands' kind of event.
We know they've said it won't be coming to the UK, but don't book any holidays or commit yourselves to any plans, just in case. Picture: Tumblr/I.am,Beyonce
Beyoncé has personal photographers following her everywhere, capturing her every move. After she released 'Beyoncé' a mini-documentary series followed showcasing the making-of. After 'The Mrs Carter World Tour' a short video followed. Need we say more?
It's more usual than unusual for artists to premiere a new song at a live concert before it explodes online. Surely after living and working together for so long the hip-hop power couple have something new to shock the stadium with?
