Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s floating stage broke down in Poland

And Bey had to escape on a ladder

July 02, 2018

Beyoncé and JAY-Z's On The Run II tour hit a minor hitch over the weekend when the moving stage malfunctioned, leaving the pair stuck in the middle of its runway. The moment, which came during a June 30 show in Warsaw, Poland, was captured by fans and can be seen above.


The floating stage is a major part of the Carter's current stage show and involves the couple performing high above the crowd from above a runway that juts out from the main stage. The fan-shot footage shows how the hitch interrupted a cover of Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" and led to the show ending early. Beyoncé was forced to clamber down a ladder in order to make her exit.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z began their joint tour in June and dropped new album Everything Is Love after a show in London last month. The tour arrives in North America later this year.
