Beyoncé paid $100,000 to keep trains running for fans after concert was delayed due to bad weather

Pop icon Beyoncé paid last night (August 6) for her fans to be able to get home after bad weather caused delays to her performance.

During her stop in Washington D.C., the 41 year old was delayed from going on stage at the FedExField for two hours as there was a shelter in place order given due to the weather.

However, she came to the rescue for fans who would be travelling home via trains as she paid a whopping $100,000 for the services to continue running for an extra hour.

Due to her funds, almost 100 train stations stayed open, though they were all exit-only with Morgan Boulevard being the only one allowing entrances.

Beyoncé was over in the UK for a stint of shows recently, with her six nights being attended by stars like Alison Hammond and Kris Jenner.

While on the European leg, she also paid tribute to Tina Turner who passed away at the age of 83 in May this year.

She told the crowd: “I just want to take a second and honour Tina Turner.”

She continued by saying: “If you’re a fan of mine, you’re a fan of Tina Turner because I wouldn’t be on this stage without Tina Turner, so I want you guys to just scream, so she can feel your love.

“I feel so blessed that I was allowed to witness her brilliance.”

It was recently revealed that the Crazy in Love hitmaker has quite a strange request on her rider as she travels around the globe on her current Renaissance world tour.

According to The Sun, she travels with her own personal toilet seat which sits in a container labelled simply ‘Beyoncé… toilet seats.’

A source told the publication: “Beyoncé is such an elite performer she can literally request anything.

“Her team makes great effort to ensure she has her own comforts and a personal toilet seat happens to be one.

“Her tour roadies have seen everything so it’s not a great deal for them, but it does raise a smile from people who happen to catch a glimpse of the branded container.”

This is not the only demand that Queen Bey repeatedly makes.

She is said to travel with a buggy that she can use to get around stadiums discreetly before shows.

In 2013, she is said to have demanded that her tour crew wear 100% cotton.
