Music’s power couple kicked off their summer “On the Run” North American tour on Wednesday night. Taking the stage at SunLife Stadium in Miami, Florida, Beyoncé and Jay Z gave a electrifying first show, spanning two-and-a-half-hours in the sweltering heat. The pair opened the night with their “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” collaboration as fans sang and rapped each lyric out loud.

With stars such as mother-to-be Kelly Rowland, and Jamie Foxx in attendance, the pop diva and Brooklyn MC went back and forth through a long catalogue of hits, anthems, and album cuts in front of the sold-out crowd. Jay rapped an unreleased verse over his wife’s “Partition,” while Bey covered Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor” during one point. The couple also shared personal moments, as hospital footage of Bey and Jay as their daughter Blue Ivy Carter flashed on the main screen. Later, closing with The Blueprint 3 single “Young Forever,” a video of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s wedding in 2008 flashed on the main screen, the first-time any footage from their private ceremony was shown. Their co-headlining stadium tour runs through July, ending on August 5th at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
