Beyonce proves she's 'irreplaceable' as she dazzles O2
The entire country is 'Crazy in Love' with pop superstar Beyonce, who kicked off her four-night stint in Ireland at the weekend.
The Queen of Pop rolled into town with her entourage on Saturday evening, just hours before her sold-out performance in Dublin's O2 arena, part of the 'Mrs Carter World Tour'.
The singer was accompanied by her rapper husband Jay Z and two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. She went from the airport directly to the O2 where she took to the stage shortly before 9pm, thrilling audiences with a set packed with dancing, special effects and a selection of her hit tracks.
Fan Marguerite Higgins said Beyonce was "just amazing. She looked unbelievable. Her costumes are class. Her performances were amazing," she said. Beyonce is to take a well-deserved break tonight before returning to the Dublin stage tomorrow and Wednesday.
The former Destiny's Child star is staying in the Fitzwilliam Hotel while here, and has requested €100 Jo Malone candles and two bars of Irish Spring soap for her dressing room. She also wanted the rooms "baby-proofed" as well as having the temperatures set at 72F or 22C.
