The On The Run II tour has not canceled Sunday's show. In a statement from the Carters' camp, they have assured fans that both pop icons are safe and the crew was evacuated to safety.
"At the end of last night's show, we had an intoxicated male enter the stage. At this point, we had a controlled evacuation of all crew on the stage in order to safely defuse the situation. We are happy to confirm that nobody was hurt during the incident, and Mr. & Mrs. Carter are choosing not to press charges against the individual," the statement read.
"We would like to thank the hard work of our tour security who effectively restrained the individual and all of our dancers and team who handled the situation so professionally. Mr. & Mrs. Carter look forward to seeing you all tomorrow in Atlanta."
