Beyonce kicked off her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour last April in Serbia, and last night she wrapped up the tour with a final stop at Lisbon’s MEO Arena in Portugal. She broke down onstage when she talked to her fans about her time on the road.
“I want a [spotlight]. I want them to see me. If you all don’t know, tonight makes 132 shows,” she told the crowd. “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 year since she hit the road for her tour she celebrated her fifth anniversary with her hubby Jay Z, and she also released her surprise self-titled album. Her tour took her to four continents, and she sold out shows in major cities across the globe. Beyonce talked about some of the things that have happened in the last year on Thursday night.
“In the past year year, we’ve been through so much together — The Super Bowl, shooting the videos, all of these shows,” she said. “When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking yet.”
She then started tearing up. “I just want you to know that I am so lucky. I’m giving y’all an ugly cry. 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 guys.”
Here’s a video of her from last night:
