PICS & VIDEO: Beyonce Kicks Off SOLD-OUT 4-Nights-Only Concerts At Roseland Ballroom

If you couldn't get tix to one of Beyonce's New York concerts at Roseland ballroom, you're not alone.  The "Best Thing You Never Had" singer kicked off her first of 4 nights of fabness last night to a sold out, standing room only crowd.  And if you weren't one of the many there, we've got pics and video inside....

The stormy NYC weather didn't stop the stans last night.  Bey performed her entire 4 album (and a few of her past hits like "Irreplaceable & "Single Ladies") for the lucky ticket buyers.  And even got some pre-concert words of encouragement from her hubby Jay-Z, who was partying down in Miami last night at LIV to promote Watch The Throne.

Jay told Power 99's Lorenzo Thomas yesterday that Beyonce is "the second coming" of Michael Jackson. *hiding from jungle-like e-fight that's about to pop off because of his statement*  He said the hard work and dedication she puts into her shows makes him want to work harder at his craft.  PEEP THE AUDIO HERE where he starts gushing about his wife around the 9:50 mark.

More pics:

 

Beyonce rocked a sparkling gold slight midriff baring mini front-angled dress by Tina Knowles, paired with her fishnets and signature blonde & brown curls.  Fab.

Here's video of her "Best Thing You Never Had" performance:

Beyonce is single handedly

Beyonce is single handedly the best entertainer of our generation. No competition - she has killed others' careers. She is a monopoly. Join her fan club or kill yourself.

I cannot understand why

I cannot understand why beyonce fanatics need to reply to every comment and ask people to defend themselves for their comment. These Beyonce fanatics are dummer than dumb. How do you attack other people over a celebrity. You dont even know beyonce, but you are clearly very uneducated if you believe everything that she throws your way. People have the right to be objective about any star. She is putting bullshit out there so that you will like her more, after all, Beyonce needs the fans more than they need her. I think people can do without hearing that annoying voice. SHe may have range and be good looking but that doesnt mean that people are going to like you. People love whoopi for example. THey love her for her talent. They dont have to lust after her or wish they could be her in order to respect and support her craft.

She's compared to MJ in that

She's compared to MJ in that she's been at the top the game her entire career. She has no competition. She's the complete package. She's in a lane all by herself. Who is her competition? Keep in mind you're comparing a woman to a man. MJ had a lot of women fans. Bey doesn't have as many male fans as MJ had women fans. Bey is not really talking to men in her music, she's only talking to/about one man (JayZ). She's all about girl power and her love life. very few men are interested in that. MJ was single for a long time which allowed his women fans to fantasize about the possibility of actually being with him. He also kept a lot of secrets, weird ideas, and alot of bad publicity with the little boys, his science project children, the monkey, the bubble, the nose, the masks, the peter-pan theory .... He kept a lot people wondering about him. Bey on the other hand is an open book. Dated and married a man in the public eye, a good ole wholesome girl, down to earth.....no nonsense about putting her in a bubble to preserve her life, having sleep overs with other ppl's kids, swinging baby's from balcony's, keep cutting at her face/nose, no hang ups about her being black. When you think about, it's really not a compliment to be compared to MJ. We need to be seeking to be better than that. He had some issues. We all do, but come'on the bubble, the boys, the peter-man and nose obsession, the baby over the balcony, etc. He was not a happy person. Bey is happy on or off stage, no hang ups.

And yeah!, Your wife might inspire you, like MJ inspired you, but there is only one MJ. Sorry, Jay z beyonce doesn't come close to his genius when it comes to performing. But, it nice of you to say so, I understand, she's your wife.

Hate is such an UGLY,UGLY

Hate is such an UGLY,UGLY reflection of what's going on in an individual's life... Leave this woman alone. If she's not you cup of tea, why do u spend your time giving her your energy.. I will never understand why the hate of this woman is filled with anger. I am starting to believe that it stems from jealousy. Jealous because one black woman can take her dreams and turn it into reality. become Globally loved and known., doing what she loves. Who care if her hair hasn't changed,(which it has many times), and her outfits are the same... Beyonce is living her life, doing things that the haters are wishing they could do... Leave this woman alone... I know that its only the black folks that are spewing out so much of it, and its mostly the black female who has no life, no motivation, no goals, no dreams. GET A LIFE!!. All the hate you have will never shake Beyonce, so use that energy and transform your own miserable lives into something worth living... Hate is not an opinion, its a Feeling....So what if Jay Z thinks his wife is like MJ. That's his opinion, who cares... LIVE YOUR OWN LIVES PEOPLE. GET OFF THIS CHICKS NECK... UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!

LOL Y'all are hilarious. Why are y'all getting so worked up over her if you don't like her?? & who the hell cares what she's wearing or if she has the same "look"? She's a musician/performer...what matters is that she delivered on every single song. smh.

WOW... Sometimes I feel sorry

WOW... Sometimes I feel sorry for entertainers! Black ones especailly... Britney Spears has had that same old blond hair from the time she started... no one complains about that, yet she still sells out and considered Queen of Pop. Beyonce is cursed and damn because she doesn't switch up her hair look. lololol Beyonce main focus is her career which is clear to everyone. She wants you to love her for her kraft and not her interviews. Her being compared to MJ is correct. She is not a gimmick that changes up hair color for attention. Her body of work stands on its own. What happens when you run out of gimmicks? At least BEE, if she did give a gimmick she can bounce off that and still have her Major talent to back her.

Jay-Z needs to stop. I'll

Jay-Z needs to stop. I'll give her Tina Turner with a splash of Janet (maybe). But to call her MJ is just the most ignorant and disrespectful thing. NO ONE will EVER duplicate MJ's status ever. Check the credits and the footage.

Yes I paid my money to see

Yes I paid my money to see her and I am a HUGE fan but I was so dissappointed. I felt like I was seeing something I saw 100 times before. I love Beyonce but I really thought she was going to change her look a little for the show. Her personality pops when she on stage, it's like she can act like us and say things to seem real or down but it's kinda FAKE. I never thought I would say that about my girl. She has an amazing voice but to compare her or that show to MJ, no I don't think he believes that himself. I guess what she's doing is working, we buy the tickets, we buy the albums and DVD's so the score is 20m - 0. Go Beyonce!!!
Still hanging on!'s picture

I really don't believe you

I really don't believe you went to Beyonce show. If you were such a fan, and know Beyonce as her fans does, then you would have known what you were getting and loved,,, UGGGGGGGGH. This sounds like a fake blog to me

THIS SOUNDS LIKE ONE OF THOSE OTHER ENTERTAINERS OR EITHER SOME FAT PERSON NEEDING A TWINKIE CAUSE THEY WISH THEY WERE BEYONCE. I THINK ITS WONDERFUL WHEN AFRICAN AMERICANS CAN BECOME SUCCESSFUL BY HARD WORK AND DEDICATION. WE AS AFRICAN AMERICANS HAVE HAD TO ENDURE SO MUCH IN THE PAST AND FOR THEM TO SUCEED IS WONDERFUL. MICHEAL JACKSON IS NOT JESUS HE CAME AND HE WENT. THERE WERE GREAT PERFORMERS BEFORE HIM AND WILL BE GREAT PERFORMERS AFTER HIM, RECORDS ARE MEANT TO BE BROKEN NOTHING LAST FOREVER LETS MOVE ON.

"The second coming of Michael

"The second coming of Michael Jackson"???!! I think that's a bit of a strectch. I beg to differ but i went along with the hoopla, followed the "trend" and got myself one of her "4" album. After a few hours into the album, i started regretting why i'm making her rich in the first place. Out of the entire album, only one song is good enough to listen to in my opinion. Therefore that MJ comment is quite irrelevant.

Beyonce is indeed

Beyonce is indeed PREGNANT. And we all know she is good at hiding things from the public trying to be secretive and all. Jay mentioning this statement about MJ is only to throw folks off and distracting people from noticing bey's growing belly. I guess she decided to have her little camels after all…congrats bey

minerva's picture

Agreed. Let's get one thing

Agreed. Let's get one thing straight (and I'm talkin' to the 20-somethings and younger now) I can understand how those of you that worship this chick can fix your mouths comparing her to MJ - because she is all you know and for this generation she is "IT"! For my generation it was and always will be MJ --I believe Jay was only trying to hype his wife up as he should, but it came across dead ass wrong and conceited - This chick catches major shade on a daily basis and her album hasn't done as well as they both had hoped so he was doing what is to be expected - excentuating the positive - but he should have known better than going the "MJ" route. But he believes in his own hype so it is what it is with them two...however I digress... For each generation, there will always be that icon that rises above all others. For my grandparents it was Frank Sinatra, for my parents it was Elvis Presley, for me it was MJ, and for my children it will be Beyonce. Please, for the love of God, stop comparing these folks to each other cuz each is on its own plateau that can not be rivaled. Each is incomparable in their own right. It's like comparing apples and oranges. Although I have my "side-eye" issues with Beyonce, you cannot deny her God given talent on the stage (now acting, eh, not so much). She may not live her life in a way that is agreeable to most, but she is living her dreams in a very public forum while still trying to contain some type of normalcy and I applaud her for that.

No Janet's not the best vocalist by any means, but she puts on the best show (behind Michael) that you will ever see. Quite frankly, Bey's voice is good but not great either. She and Alicia Keys are both overrated singers.

Her dancing... will I don't

Her dancing... will I don't think she's that good at that either. When I see her dance it looks as if it's so difficult for her to pull off. She has rhythmn, but a dancer... NO! For example when Mike,Janet, and Usher dances its smooth and nice, it looks effortless! Know why? Because they're dancers. Acting?... NEVER! She doesn't even have a personality... so acting is never going to work for her. She's so boring in interviews."So are you dating Jay Z?" I don't want to talk about that! My God we have ten million pics of yall together hugged up, out together, kissing, and all types of thimgs. Get over this "I'm going to keep our relationship secret" thing.... you can't, HELLO your're in HOLLYWOOD, she is so difficult when it comes to that ridiculous relationship between her and Jay!shes so stupid She has no life, she always looks so overwhelmed as if she knows she doesn't belong. The interviewer would be like OMG BEYONCE I LOVED YOUR ALBUM, she'll be like.. oh thank you thank you in that corney low timid voice. She has no spunk, unless she is perfoming. And even then, It seems like it is manufactured just like a machine...ONE DAY HER BATTERIES ARE GONNA FALL OUT, don't be surprised!

PREGNANT DOES NOT FIT HER

PREGNANT DOES NOT FIT HER GOALS SO PLEASE LET THE GIRL FULFILL HER DREAMS AND NOT YOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "Beyonce told Self Magazine that she keeps motivated during strenuous workouts by staring at a painting of an Academy Award and dreaming of the day she takes home the statuette. The Bootylicious" singer informed Self Magazine that "the thought of snatching that trophy motivated everything down to her fitness." She told the magazine that she kept a painting of the Oscar above her treadmill as motivation, 'I look at it, and I'm like "Ok, I have to stay in shape,'" she admitted.

What does a academy award has

What does a academy award has to do with her might be pregnant? That won't stop her getting a awards if she is indeed pregnant. In fact it might help her to recieve that award. In faact other acatress that were preagnant wasn't stop by it and in facat recieve their award. Your performance as a acatress and how you percieve to be that person is what gets you that award not the fact you are pregnant

Beyonce is far from being

Beyonce is far from being anywhere near Michael Jackson, but she is extremely talented and dedicated to her craft. I can't be mad at Jay Z for his comment because that's what a spouse is supposed to do....ride for their spouse with unlimited support. On another note, I like Beyonce with darker hair. That cave mutant blonde hair is lifeless. Go Beyonce!

I'm so glad that for the most

I'm so glad that for the most part the REAL Beyonce fans are ignoring these simple chicks on here being vicious and nasty towards a woman who aint did nothing to them personally (I guess). Lets stay on the high road and let these chickens squawk. Cause like King Bey says…”What goes around comes aroud BABY” especially all the contemptible, vicious and mean-spirited comments aka HATE.....it only speak to your character. From a man’s/womans heart, he/she speaks. --- the feelings/emotions thats in your heart comes out in your words, weather you are aware of it or not. Love and Light to all.
