Beyoncé’s fans were not happy with the location of her performance for the grand opening of ‘Atlantis The Royal.’ She received a nice payday for her mini concert in Dubai. The critics are not fond of the country’s anti-LGBTQ+ laws and felt it was a bad decision for Bey to perform there.

Matthew Knowles, the father of Queen Bey, is defending his daughter. He looked at this controversy through a different set of lenses. He said his daughter has incredible power to bring individuals together.

Bey’s First Performance Since 2018

The Houston native’s performance in Dubai was the first time she performed since 2018. It was an exclusive event that had stars in attendance such as actress Nia Long and model Kendall Jenner.

Father Defends His Legendary Daughter

Mr. Knowles told TMZ  Queen Bey united a really diverse crowd with her incredible performance overseas, bringing people closer, as she does best. He said people that were not present may not understand. In addition, he stated respect was received both ways from her and Dubai. Her father also stressed that Mrs. Carter would never do anything to hurt someone intentionally.

Ts Madison Defends Beyoncé As Well

American TV personality and LGBTQ+ activist Ts Madison questioned the Bey hive wondering if people would feel the same if Beyoncé performed in states with anti-same-sex laws.

Tour On The Way And More Acts Coming

Her former manager also added that a tour is in the works. The announcement will come when the details are finalized. Fans await the mind-blowing performances the legendary performer will give, but the Dubai setlist was interesting. Bey did not sing a single song from the 2022 disco-house album Renaissance.

Many are fascinated with how it will sound to mix her old tracks with her new sound. We can’t forget that the LP released last year was just Act I… Two other acts are on the way. Will we get a teaser for this upcoming tour?
