Fan storms stage at Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Atlanta show
A chaotic finale.
The Carters had just performed their recent single ‘Apeshit’ at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium when the fan – identified as 26-year-old Anthony Charles Thomas Maxwell – ran up to the couple and tried to follow them backstage.
Footage posted on social media shows Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s back-up dancers running to help, while security guards tackled Maxwell to the ground. He was reportedly detained by police and given a citation for disorderly conduct.
Earlier this morning, Beyoncé’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure wrote on Instagram that the couple “are fine” and looking forward to their second show at the Mercedes Benz Stadium tonight. [via Billboard]
