My Intimate Night With Beyonce

On this past Friday, my sisters and I traveled to NYC to celebrate our sister Ashley's birthday. About a week into planning her birthday getaway to NYC we heard the Beyonce would be performing at the Roseland Ballroom to a standing room only audience. No questions asked this was immediate added to the agenda! Getting tickets were EXTREMELY hard! Her first show sold out in 22 seconds! But of course I had to still get tickets NO MATTER WHAT! I ended up getting tickets thru a re-seller paying a WHOLE lot more than face value but I knew I had to make this happen for my sister.

We arrived in NYC Friday around 11 am, initially the plan was to check into the hotel get dressed and go get in line. But after feeling the New York air we decided against it, wherever we were going to be in line was ok. The first stop after checking into the Wonderful W Times Square was MAC so the birthday girl could get the face beat down!! I must add I love the MAC in Times Square! They really make you feel and look like a celebrity!

 After her makeup we headed back to get dressed and head out to see KING B! We got in line around 4pm a line that was 4 blocks long (how ironic 4pm 4 blocks 4 is her album LOL) But anyway surprisingly most the people in line were dressed like they were going to a cook out or maybe even a walk in the park. NO LOOKERS at all!  Here's the birthday girls fit:

The Birthday Shoe


After getting dressed we headed to the Roseland Ballroom to get in line.

In line we met all types of cool people. Even Beyonce's lead guitar player Bibi McGill! She is really cool!

Around 7:15 I don't know what happened but the line was bum rushed people were yelling running and everyone was soaking wet!! But I guess that all paid off because we ended up in the front and like 7 rows from the stage! Go us! Whoop Whoop! Beyonces performance was amazing! She laughed, cried, told stories, chatted, told jokes and even took shots at Daddy Knowles! The cutest moment is when she noticed hubby was there, you know she showed off from that point on! But she promised us anyway this was the 4th night and it was being recorded so she would do the very BEST! And she did that plus! This girl is PERFECT!!! She performed 4 in its entirety with the exception of the bonus tracks. Bey made up for that because she performed Irreplaceable, Bootylicious, NoNoNo, Survivor and a few more tracks form her Destinys' Child days.  I give the show an A- , minus only because of the disorganization of the venue, but I would def do it again. I actually now prefer an intimate show over a huge venue! Enjoy the pics and video below!
