A drunken fan was “on the run” after the Carters.
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Saturday night concert in Atlanta ended in chaos when an “intoxicated” man ran on the stage and chased after the music power couple. The duo were wrapping up their “On the Run II” set at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and walking toward the back of the stage when the man jumped on the platform and bolted toward them.
Videos taken by concertgoers showed backup dancers looking confused until the man started running. Some people in the audience were heard yelling, “Oh my god! Oh my god!”
Warning: Videos may contain explicit language.
The man didn’t seem to make it that far and was tackled by the dancers.

The “On The Run II” tour team released a statement saying that an “intoxicated male entered the stage.”
“At this point we had a controlled evacuation of all crew on the stage in order to safely diffuse the situation,” the statement read. “We are happy to confirm that nobody was hurt during the incident, and Mr. & Mrs. Carter are choosing not to press charges against the individual.”
The team thanked tour security and the dancers for how they handled the situation.
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, also confirmed on Instagram the couple were “fine” and looking forward to their Sunday night performance at the same venue.
“Thank you to all the fans for your concern. They are fine and looking forward to the show tomorrow [Sunday],” Noel-Schure said.
