After 132 super-successful shows, the “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” came to an end in Lisbon, Portugal tonight and no one was more sad to say goodbye than the Queen Bey herself. Beyonce shed happy tears as she thanked her fans and crew for the exciting ride, which grossed more than $200 million.
“I want a spot[light]. I want them to see me,” the “Flawless” singer said on stage. “If you all don’t know, tonight makes 132 shows. Tonight is the last show of the Mrs. Carter Show. We started a year ago and I want to say this has been such a journey. In the past year, we’ve been through so much together,” she added. “The Super Bowl, shooting the videos, all of these shows. When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking yet. I just want you to know that I am so lucky.”
“I’m giving y’all an ugly cry,” she added as tears stared to flow. “Thank y’all again. Thank you for allowing me to have a career. And when I fall, you lift me up. When I’m hungry, you feed me. And I just want to give you my light. I dedicate this song to you.”
