Beyonce-Jay Z concert stage invaded by fan; security team and backup dancers tackle him
On the Tour II seems to have a lot of surprises in store for Queen Bey as she struggles to keep herself falling off the stairs to tackling a fan who invaded her concert.
Beyonce and Jay Z's 'On the Tour II' concert in Atlanta was disrupted on Saturday night when a fan chased after the two singers as they wrapped up their performance for the night and walked out of the stage. The fan appeared to run after them but was soon stopped by a group of backstage guards and some of the backup dancers.
In the video footage shared by concertgoers, a man can be seen running after Beyonce and Jay Z while the backup dancers continued with their performance. Although they initially did not realize what was going on, at least 10 backup dancers soon spotted the man and tried to stop the invader from getting close to the singers. They were accompanied by a security team that can be seen pinning down the invader, as the audience can be heard gasping in shock. On one of the Twitter posts, a concertgoer applauded the backup dancers for their swift action.

Fans were shocked at the incident and took to Twitter to express their concerns. While some fans were simply taken aback by the man casually walking up the stage, others expressed their annoyance at the situation. One fan wrote: "Atlanta really let a BALDING WHITE MAN RUN UP ON BEYONCÉ AND JAY Z AT THEIR OWN CONCERT?!!?!?!? I'M READY TO FIGHT Y'ALL GOT ME FUCKED UP." Another fan wrote: "Omfg that video from Beyoncé and Jay z concert in Atlanta got me scared af. I really I hope they ok. Just know all the dancers about that life #OTR2."
On the other hand, some people were concerned if such an incident would show Atlanta in bad light. A concerned fan posted, "I hope this incident doesn’t cast a negative light on Atlanta. We love Jay Z and Beyonce here and in all my years of going to concerts I’ve never seen any shit like this before."

While some fans were concerned if the duo was alright, others were disgusted by the lack of security which probably led to the invader stepping up on stage. However, Beyonce's bodyguard who was present at the concert along with friends and family posted a picture on his Instagram story claiming that things were pretty much under control, and the guard should not be blamed for the invasion as the man was already present backstage.
