Welcome to Beyoncé Week on Soundcheck!
Welcome to Beyonce Week on Soundcheck!
Oh, who are we kidding. Here in Tampa, we’re in Beyonce MONTH. The singer has been rehearsing for her Formation World Tour at Raymond James Stadium since earlier this month, mostly in secrecy. But that hasn’t stopped us from paying attention.
A behind-the-scenes look of tour rehearsals? We’re there!
Are Beyonce and Jay Z renting on Davis Islands? Sure seems like it!
Her surprise new album Lemonade drops over the weekend? Stop the presses!
Queen B just has that effect on people. Ever since the Super Bowl, when Beyonce stole the show with her fire new single Formation and tour announcement, we’ve been on this, scoping out the ticket situation, keeping tabs on potential police protests and waiting for her new Ivy Park fashion line to drop. Her concert Friday at RayJay is the biggest musical event of the year in Tampa Bay, probably the biggest since Taylor Swift’s 1989 Tour at Raymond James Stadium last fall.
So as we did back then, we’re going all out with Bey this week. Our own BeyHive is coming at you hard this week with looks back at her previous visits to Tampa Bay, breakdowns of her fashion hits and societal controversies, guides to tailgating and dressing for the concert and, of course, an even deeper look at Lemonade.
Keep checking back for tons of great, exclusive content about Beyonce’s tour stop in Tampa. Bring hot sauce!
