Music moguls JAY-Z and Beyoncé might never get off tour after they realize how much they’re bringing in. New reports claim the Carters are making a ridiculous amount of millions off their On The Run II international run.
According to reports, the couple’s tour has grossed over $150 million in less than 50 stops.
Their placement is fueled by recent engagements in Minneapolis, Detroit, and two sold-out shows for 86,000 fans at Chicago’s Soldier Field, which totaled $21.2 million in grosses. With the addition of these four dates, Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s co-headline trek exceeds $150 million grossed, rising to a total of $150.7 million. Across 29 shows in Europe and the U.S., total attendance has reached 1.4 million. There are 19 dates left to report to Boxscore before the tour closes on Oct. 4 at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.

Earlier this month, JAY and Bey paid their respects to late soul icon Aretha Franklin at their Detroit show.
Queen B made the sweet tribute after performing the opening number at Ford Field. “This show is dedicated to Aretha Franklin,” she said, per the concert venue. According to the Detroit Free Press she then added, “We love you” and thanked the legendary singer for the “beautiful music.” The news outlet also reported the couple’s opener, DJ Khaled, played Franklin’s hit “Respect,” generating roars of applause from the audience. The concert location was a special one as the “Natural Woman” singer grew up in Detroit and lives in Michigan. (E! Online)

Recently, Bey’s mom Tina Knowles captured the couple crooning during a dinner outing.
Knowles Lawson panned the camera around the table to show off everyone sitting at the dinner table. Joyfully singing along to the Van Morrison tune “Brown-Eyed Girl” with the in-house traveling band was Bono, sitting beside Jay-Z, who was banging out the rhythm of the song on the table as the group performed an acoustic version of the rock classic . Next to Jay, of course, was his wife Beyoncé, shaking her blonde head of hair and smiling, before covering her face and hiding from the camera. (Billboard)
