Who are the support acts for the On The Run 2 UK shows? Are there any special guests?
With frequent collaborator DJ Khaled and Parkwood Entertainment signees Chloe x Halle joining Beyoncé and Jay Z for the North American leg of the tour, it's likely that the duo will pull out all the stops for their UK stint as well.
Before the duo hit the stage in Cardiff on Wednesday 6th June, a local Welsh DJ named Tom Clugston - a.k.a. DJ Killer Tomato - warmed up the crowd before the headliners took over. In Glasgow, a Scottish DJ named Nasty P was on hand to deliver the tunes. While in Manchester, a local DJ called Stylus is set to warm up for The Carters at the Etihad Stadium.
