Blue Ivy joins mom Beyonce in first performance on stage

Blue Ivy joins mom Beyoncé in first performance on stage in five years

Beyoncé’s return to the stage was a family affair.

Blue Ivy joined her mother on stage during her performance at the opening of Atlantis The Royal Hotel in Dubai on Saturday night.

“Blue Ivy came out during ‘Brown Skin Girl,'” a source tells us. “She looked grown up in red, danced along and had a mic but didn’t sing.”

Beyoncé also told the crowd that her husband, Jay-Z, was there with their parents, Tina and Mathew Knowles, and their 5-year-old twins, Rumi and Sir.

During the hour-and-a-half performance, which we’re told started over an hour late, fans had to put their phones in their pockets and were even reprimanded by security staff if they were caught taking photos.

Despite the delay and strict cellphone restrictions, a source told Page Six the 41-year-old “looked like a goddess” and “sounded perfect.”

She started her show with Etta James’ “At Last” and performed hits like “Beautiful Liar”, “Halo” and “Crazy in Love”. However, we are told that she has not performed anything new.

This marks the first time in almost five years that Beyoncé – who wore bespoke Dolce & Gabbana on the event’s red carpet – has headlined a live show, most recently the Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa in December 2018.

The Dubai gig comes after she released her long-awaited seventh album, Renaissance, which features bops like Cuff It and Break My Soul.

Page Six reported exclusively in September 2022 that Beyoncé will be touring with “Renaissance” this summer.

A source told us at the time that the singer was in the process of booking stadiums around the world, à la her 2016 Formation world tour, as well as her 2014 and 2018 joint ‘On the Run’ outings with husband Jay-Z.

Beyoncé hinted that more music is coming when she described “Renaissance” as the first part of a “three-act project” that came to fruition during the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, it is unclear what the second and third acts will be.

“Create [‘Renaissance’] gave me a place to dream and escape at a scary time for the world,” she wrote on Instagram in June 2022.

However, one thing fans can certainly count on is a collaboration with Britney Spears.

Multiple sources exclusively told Page Six earlier this month that Beyoncé had asked Spears to appear in a new music video, but it ultimately fell through.
