Thus far on Beyonce’s RENAISSANCE World Tour, we haven’t seen too many surprise guests take the stage alongside her. Of course, her eldest child, Blue Ivy Carter, has been a regular performance staple alongside Queen B, and her troupe of dancers has been keeping audiences more than entertained. For her first performance in Los Angeles on Friday (September 1) night, however, the Houston native finally felt as though it was time to recruit some of her fellow creatives to share her stage. Late in August, it was confirmed that DJ Khaled would have the honour of opening for Beyonce. He made sure to impress with the friends that he brought along.
Not only did the DJ bring Coi Leray out from the East Coast to sing her smash hit “Players” single, but we also saw Offset pay tribute to Michael Jackson once again. The father of five dressed in a black and silver outfit, similarly styled to the King of Pop before performing a throwback favourite, “Ric Flair Drip” to Beyonce’s audience. A few West Coast icons also made appearances, such as Roddy Ricch (though he appeared to run into technical difficulties during his song), and Wiz Khalifa.
DJ Khaled Had a Blast Opening for Beyonce with His Friends
The latter put everyone in attendance in a feel-good mood with “Young, Wild, and Free” before Lil Wayne turned the energy up with “Encore.” RENAISSANCE tickets were undeniably expensive, but with such a star-studded roster of opening acts, they were worth every penny for music lovers in LA.
Besides the talent joining DJ Khaled and Bey on stage, plenty of famous faces were spotted in the crowd as well. Among them were Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, Kelly Rowland, Kris Jenner, Issa Rae, and dozens more.
