Thousands turned out Wednesday night, as Beyonce and Jay-Z took the stage at Safeco Field.

Crews prepped the stadium by assembling a huge stage in center field and laying down tiles over the grass.

Seattle was one of sixteen stops on the On the Run Tour concert tour. This is the first joint tour for the couple.

I'm very very excited, said fan Greg Perkins, as he danced his way into the stadium. I'm a huge, huge Beyonce fan. I love to dance!

The show was set to start at 8 p.m. but Beyonce and Jay-Z didn't actually start performing until about 9 p.m. There was no opening act.

Fans told KING5 it was well worth the wait. The show wrapped up just before 11:30 p.m.

This is also only the second public concert at the stadium. The first was by Sir Paul McCartney last July.
