Beyoncé continues to find new ways to show love and appreciation to her fans, aka the BeyHive. Following the D.C. stop of her Renaissance World Tour, the megastar ensure that her fans made it home safely following severe weather. In order to prevent anyone from being stranded after the concert, Beyoncé paid $100,000 to D.C.’s transportation department so that train stations could continue running for an extra hour.
“Due to inclement weather that may delay the start of tonight’s Renaissance World Tour at FedExField, Metro will extend the last train by an extra hour beyond the extended closing previously announced. The extended time means the #BeyHive can stay for the ‘Party’ and still get home on Metro,” the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority said in a statement. “The additional hour will be funded by the Tour to cover the $100,000 cost to run more trains, keep all 98 stations open for customers to exit, and other operational expenses.”
FedEx Field advised fans to find shelter after heavy rain started coming down about an hour prior to the concert.
“Due to lightning in the area, we are currently under a shelter in place order,” officials tweeted. “Fans outside of gates and in the parking lots are asked to return to their cars. All fans inside of the stadium are asked to shelter in place under covered concourse areas and ramps until further notice.”
Videos posted across social media showed people taking shelter in hallways and ramps at FedEX Field. After the delay, Beyoncé took the stage in front of her adoring fans and proceeded to display her mesmerizing talent as usual.
The 41-year-old artist has been traveling the world since May as she keeps dazzling fans with her Renaissance World Tour, which is set to conclude in New Orleans on Sept. 27.
