As the two were leaving the stage, an “intoxicated” concert-goer seemingly just walked up a set of steps onto the stage. The tour issued a statement that no one was hurt and that they were able to diffuse the situation, but in the moment, there was quite a lot of drama and confusion.
Fan footage shows the pair’s dancers quickly attempting to stop the stage invader before security is forced to step in.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z released a joint statement following the stage invasion, confirming that no-one was hurt during the incident and that the two stars are not pressing charges against the “intoxicated” individual.
However, police in Atlanta are pursuing charges against 26-year-old Anthony Charles Thomas Maxwell following the incident.
