Royal Mrs. Carter Reins in Rio

The Mrs. Carter Tour exemplifies precise choreography, theatricality of a high caliber, couture sequins and leotards which are all fused by Mrs. Carter’s grand vocals accompanied by diverse rhythms and beats offered by her all female band.

The Mrs. Carter Tour made a stop at the Rock in Rio concert, a stop that was hailed by her fans in the audience, other musicians and critics. Beyonce’s performance was electrifying in numerous ways.

To launch the performance that radiated class and sparkle, the spectacle emanates with a digital backdrop video of a royal and regal Queen B who reflects the impeccable swag and class of the Queen of Pop as she approaches her throne .

Beyonce then powerfully prances on stage and chants out Run The World (Girls) which together with its African lively routine sets the tone for the dynamic Mrs. Carter show which spans for 90 minutes. Envision it- 90 minutes of royalty hosted by none either than Mrs Carter herself.

Her songs are strategically infused in a manner which makes the concert a creative unit, this is emulated well by the sleek transitions throughout the show. The set then commences with immense lighting, compelling high definition digital video backdrops and a powerhouse performance by Beyonce as she belts out If I were a boy to an instrumental of The Verve’s Bitter Sweet Symphony which lends a unique new element to the song Beyonce released in 2008 in her album I AM…SASHA FIERCE.

Beyonce transforms into a sassy queen as she greets the crowd as they reiterate “Hey Mrs Carter!” which leads to the popular dance single Get Me Bodied, succeeded by the Jamaican inspired Baby Boy and halting her sassy rein with an assertive, domineering performance of Diva. She then embodies a sexy, seductive queen as she dons a lacy Ralph and Russo leotard enticingly singing a Donna Summer inspired Naughty Girl.

The theatrical, uber-sassy, playful yet powerful nature of Beyonce radiates as she performs a retro inspired Why Don’t You Love me? with the Les Twins in which there is a swift, precise choreography that also has a retro aspect. This song also reflects Beyonce’s vocal range as she interacts with her audience asking them ‘Why don’t you love me?’ in flexible tempos and pitches accompanied by tribal beats with a funky baseline.

Before acknowledging all who contributed to the show she performs an unexpected yet fun dance to the Brazilian hit Ah Leleke Leke utterly pleasing her Brazilian audience.

The live DVD of the Mrs Carter Show is still to be released but be sure to acquire this night of royalty when it does get released, please indulge in her performance at the Rock in Rio concert below.
