Beyoncé will make her official return to the stage, post twins, for a hurricane relief benefit concert at Barclays Center.
The concert will be held at Barclays Center on Tuesday, October 17, US Weekly reports. Several Roc Nation artists are expected to perform, including Jay-Z. The show is said to have been put together to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
This will be Beyoncé’s first live performance since the 2017 Grammys in February and ahead of her scheduled headlining of Coachella 2018.
Though it’s unclear if the husband and wife duo will perform together or separately, it’ll also be the first time the couple have shared a stage since Jay further aired out their marital issues on his latest album, 4:44, following Lemonade. They last co-headlined during a campaign concert for presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton last November.
Hurricane Harvey specifically hit Bey’s hometown of Houston, TX, and she, along with her Bey Good Foundation, have been seen actively giving back to those affected. During Bun B’s Hand in Hand telethon on Sept. 12, the singer gave an emotional speech:
“During a time where it’s impossible to watch the news without seeing violence or racism in this country, just when you think it couldn’t possibly get worse, natural disasters take precious life, do massive damage and forever change lives, leaving behind contaminated water, flooded hospitals, schools and nursing homes,” said Beyoncé during the telethon, which earned an estimated $55 million. “Natural disasters don’t discriminate. They don’t see if you’re an immigrant, black or white, Hispanic or Asian, Jewish or Muslim, wealthy or poor. It doesn’t matter if you’re from [Houston neighborhoods] Third Ward or River Oaks, we’re all in this together.”
