Here’s My Dream Setlist For Beyonce’s “Mrs. Carter World” Tour
See that video up there? Click that little arrow. Watch Beyonce Giselle Knowles, master of the graceful recovery and mother of America’s baby Blue Ivy, as she slays my favorite new song, “Grown Woman.” I have spent a fair amount of time watching this performance, imagining the stages leading up to my inevitable rapture if I were witnessing this live. Fancy my surprise when Amelia scored us tickets to the sold-out-forever show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn in a few weeks. Happy is too gentle a word for my emotional state. There was screaming. Disbelief. In anticipation of this momentous occasion, I have put together my dream setlist for this show, featuring a run-through of her solo hits, some deep cuts, and an extended section of Destiny’s Child/Jay-Z collabs, as an attempt to placate my persistent hope that she brings out an entire army of guest stars including but not limited to Jay-Z, Nori West and this kid from the YouTubes.
