We love the legend that is Beyoncé for many reasons, but one of the main things that we love about her is that she delivers an epic show. From On The Run to Formation — the Dangerously In Love songstress gives us vocals, stellar choreography, and stunning fashion at each and every concert.
During her most recent world tour, On The Run II — the legend shared the stage with her rapper hubby JAY-Z in support of their joint album, Everything Is Love. However, back in 2016 with the release of her iconic and vulnerable Lemonde, Queen B had us all in formation.
With a treadmill runway, pools of water, and a 60 foot tall rotating LED cuboid on stage, Formation was one of the most stellar concerts of the decade. But when will we be able to stream the show from the comfort of our homes?
Inside Beyoncé’s work process
As we saw from her Netflix documentary concert — Homecoming, Beyoncé is involved in every single level of her creative process. From the dancers to the musicians, and even the fabric on the costuming – Beyoncé’s vision is paramount. “With new projects, I get my team together for a prayer,” the “Halo” singer explained to Elle. “I make sure we are all clear on the intention and what the deeper meaning is. I do my best, and I try to push everyone around me to do the same. I eventually give everything I have. When it’s released to the world, I let it go because it is no longer mine.”
Representation and inclusion are essential to Beyoncé’s work
From her Lemonade visual album to her concerts — all shapes and sizes of women are present. Representation and inclusion is paramount to The Gift songstress.
“For me, it is about amplifying the beauty in all of us,” Beyoncé said. “I rarely felt represented in film, fashion, and other media. After having a child, I made it my mission to use my art to show the style, elegance, and attraction in men and women of color. We are living in a beautiful time of real progression towards acceptance. I’m so proud of the progress being made in and around the LGBTQIA community. Masculinity is being redefined. Women are not competing with women. They no longer strive to be the best female anything. They strive to be the best. Diversity and inclusion go beyond race.”
Can you stream Beyoncé’s ‘Formation World Tour’?
Since the Formation World Tour is one of the best examples of Beyoncé’s worth ethic and process, we wanted to know when it would be available to stream. After all, the queen has put certain concerts on HBO and Netflix in the past. Unfortunately, you’ll never be able to stream Formation.
“Years ago, I asked Prince to record my rehearsal with him for our Grammy performance,” Bey revealed. “He said, ‘You don’t need to record that. You own that in your mind.’ Haaaaaaa! Prince always knew best! So, you can always watch the Formation World Tour in your mind; you own that! 🤪”
At least we’ll always have Homecoming.
