One man took the title of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s tour – On The Run II – a little too literally when he drunkenly stormed the stage and bolted backstage towards the star couple. After two-and-a-half hours of tag-teaming through their joint spectacle of juggernaut hits, moving catwalks, floating stages and pyrotechnics, The Carters had just performed Apesh*t and were walking backstage after at Atlanta Mericedes-Benz Stadium. A fool in a white jersey jumped onto the stage and makes beeline for Beyoncé and Jay-Z before their back-up dancers swing into ninja action and take down the man. Chaos ensued, so much so that the tour issued a statement citing The Carters have decided not to press charges.

“At the end of last night’s show, we had an intoxicated male enter the stage,” the statement read. “At this point, we had a controlled evacuation of all crew on the stage in order to safely defuse the situation. We are happy to confirm that nobody was hurt during the incident, and Mr. & Mrs. Carter are choosing not to press charges against the individual.
We would like to thank the hard work of our tour security who effectively restrained the individual and all of our dancers and team who handled the situation so professionally.
Mr. & Mrs. Carter look forward to seeing you all tomorrow in Atlanta.”
