Her four-continent and 132-show trek across the globe proved to be a very monumental journey for the singer, and she let her emotions run over at her last pit stop in Lisbon, Portugal.
“If y’all didn’t know, tonight makes 132 shows,” the overwhelmed singer said to a cheering crowd. “Tonight is the last show of the Mrs. Carter Show.”
Her tour that began April of last year in Serbia proved to be an odyssey for all the Carters as Jay Z and Blue Ivy was by her side through most of her touring. Thanks to her Tumblr and YouTube videos that accounted the megastar’s trek, we got to see her snatchin’ wigs and learn about her (rumored) million dollar one-of-a-kind weave.
The singer gave thanks to her band. “We started a year ago. I want to say this has been such a journey—the Super Bowl, shooting the videos, all of these shows.”
And to her Beyhive: “Thank you for allowing me to have a career. When I fall, you lift me up, when I’m hungry, you feed me, and I just want to give you my light,”
She closed out the show by dedicating ‘XO’ to the stadium.
Press play to watch Bey’s tearful farewell.
