Just under six months after giving birth to baby Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé rocked the stage at the opening of her four-night run at Revel, a casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. And from all accounts, it was like the diva never left the stage.
Before the concert, she was reported to be nervous asking, “Will I be ready?” at one point, and exclaiming, “I’m scared … this is crazy. We usually have 2 months to do what we’re doing in two weeks. But what is new?”
With the love and support of her rap mogul husband Jay-Z and soul songstress Jill Scott, who both tweeted support to the star, she pulled through and came out shining.
The show included material from all four albums and some classic Destiny’s Child songs that had the audience going, understandably, wild.
