Beyoncé in costume for herI AM... concert.
Riding the wave of international music and film stardom, R&B, pop and acting sensation Beyoncé is performing her highlyacclaimed I AM… spectacular in Beijing Friday night, one of the few truly international stars to do so at the peak of their career.
"I am so excited to be playing my first concert in Beijing," Beyoncé exclaimed to the Global Times. "Ihave heard so much about the beauty of the city and I cannot wait to see all the fans."
As one stop on her I AM… world tour, the Beijing performance is part of the multi-award-winning artist's first full-length concert tour since 2007's sold-out The Beyoncé Experience, which included a show in Shanghai.
"The I AM... tour is di. Erent from the Experience tour in that it is more of a spectacle," she explained. Instead of the usual stage design, Beyoncé said that she would take full advantage of Wukesong's largescale stadium and use a multitude of performance platforms. "I have already seen the blueprints of the Wukesong Arena and I believe I will enjoy performing in the middle of it very much."
