The audience attending her show were told to leave their seats inside the open-air venue before the singer started her set, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Knowles was scheduled to take the stage at 08:30 pm, but law enforcement and the staff decided to evacuate the stadium at 08:15 pm because of the approaching lightning. Concertgoers were asked to move to either the TCF Bank Stadium concourse or to Mariucci and Williams Arena.
After a 45-minute delay, fans were told to return to their seats “in a calm and orderly fashion.” “I am so honoured to be here tonight. Thanks for riding with me through the storm,” Knowles said.
