On the Run with Beyonce and Jay Z

10300011_10203547956811003_5017813927179174946_nWorking the On the Run Tour was entertaining. Jay Z’s singing sounds like he’s just talking, and Beyonce does her usual cardio zumba workout on stage. Oh and Beyonce gets shot by a gun in a movie on screen, wearing a wedding dress, walking down the aisle.

SpyGame Studios was hired to provide event security for Beyonce’s “Mrs Carter” World Tour at the Staples Center, in Downtown LA.

The sold out, 2 hour show, involved 10 outfit changes, fire/pyro effects, huge video screens and amazing dance choreography.  Beyonce outshined her professional dancers with a nonstop display of bootie shaking moves that would put most aerobics instructors to shame.

SpyGame Studios was at Forrest Lawn Cemetery today to lead a march of hundreds of Michael Jackson fans behind MJ lookalike, Carlo Riley, to honor the Death Anniversary of The King of Pop.

Unlike previous anniversary celebrations, MJ’s fans showed their support for the singer as they all posed for a group photo.

Next year will most likely be even bigger as it marks the 5th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s untimely death.
