Man Tries To Rush Stage At Jay-Z And Beyoncé Concert

A man in a white jersey jumped on stage and made a beeline toward the couple.
For a nanosecond, the dancers looked at one another. Then, they sprinted into action, as did the security guys.
You can see it unfold from this fan-shot angle:
Here’s another:
And another:
var id = ‘//’.replace(/s+/g, ”);!!document.getElementById(id) || (function makeEmbedScript(d, id) {var js,fjs;js = d.createElement(‘script’); = id;js.charset = ‘utf-8’;js.setAttribute(‘async’, ”);fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0];fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);js.src = ‘//’;}(document, id));

CNN reached out to Beyoncé’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure for details, and is waiting to hear back. However, Noel-Schire said in an Instagram post: “Thank you to all the fans for your concern. They are fine and looking forward to the show tomorrow.”
Sunday is night two of the spectacle in Atlanta. And what a spectacle it is.
It started with “This. Is. Real. Life” emblazoned on gigantic screens as Jay-Z and Beyoncé took the stage and turned the private turmoils of their marriage into public art. The set list lifted heavily from the paroxysm of Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” and the penance of Jay-Z’s “4:44.” It was carefully curated and exquisitely choreographed.
Moving catwalks? Check.
Floating stage? Check.
Pyrotechnics? Check.
It ended with the pair locking lips as the words “This. Is. Real. Love” flashed on the screen. They walked off hand-in-hand, catharsis complete.
And then of course, someone had to run up and spoil it.
