Beyoncé’s stunning Mrs. Carter World Tour is coming to Sydney

With ten Grammys under her belt, pop sensation Beyoncé Knowles’ Mrs. Carter World Tour has solidified her status as one of the greatest modern day performers in existence.

Beyoncé has recently landed in Melbourne to begin the Australian leg of her fifth concert tour entitled the Mrs. Carter World Tour. Praised for her fierce performance style and impeccable choreography, the talented artist’s latest international tour is an incredible state of the art show with a no-expenses-spared budget. Beyoncé adds her own personal creative touch to make each of her shows unique and intimate, raising the standards bar amongst her contemporaries with her energy and effortless style of performance.

During her first Aussie show in Melbourne Beyoncé announced to adoring fans “This is not the show for you to sit down and be cool,” before embarking on a no holds barred performance which had everyone up on their feet. The Mrs. Carter World Tour set list is a perfect combo of chart topping hits which include ‘Crazy in Love’, ‘Baby Boy’, ‘Naughty Girl’ and ‘Survivor’ as well as highlights from her latest album 4. Beyoncé dazzled the audience with her intense dancing and vocal mastery as she switches from pop to vulnerable ballads such as her song 1+1.

Adding to the visual feast, Knowles channels royalty with outfits reminiscent of Marie Antoinette, Cleopatra and Elizabeth I. Her couture costumes were meticulously put together by world class fashion designers that include Riccardo Tisci from Givenchy, Gucci and Roberto Cavalli. Her racy outfits have been described by Rosa Silverman of the Telegraph as “mesmerizing” and Jocelyn Vena of MTV News agreed that it was “Eye-catching… dazzling… [and] provocative”.

Catch the superstar in one of the most anticipated concert events of the year, that has earned multitudes of rave reviews from fans to critics. The Times has lauded the performance as “two hours of uplifting escapism” and the New York Times called the show “breathtaking”.

Beyoncé is set to play at Allphones Arena in Sydney on the 2 & 3 November with Australian artist Iggy Azalea as the supporting act.
