Beyonce I am Concert Ends in Trinidad

Mega star Beyonce Knowles is in Trinidad. She arrived by private jet yesterday but failed to greet fans who had gathered at the Piarco International Airport for hours awaiting her arrival.

From her private jet which landed at 1 p.m. she was whisked off to a yacht, Velista, anchored off the Hyatt Regency hotel on Wrightson Road, Port of Spain, where will be staying.

Knowles is scheduled to perform at the Beyonce I Am… concert today (February 18) at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain.

Beyonce was accompanied by her 80-plus team members. After being processed by Immigration at the Southern Terminal, she was escorted into a Range Rover. That vehicle, along with two other Range Rovers and a panel van, was escorted by police to the Hyatt. They were followed by two PTSC buses, carrying Beyonce’s team.

Graeme Suite, manager of media relations at Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT), confirmed Beyonce and her team’s arrival.

The gates will be opened at 4 p.m. to a pan welcome by 2010 Panorama champs PCS Silver Stars and DJ music. At 5.40 p.m., Silver Stars will play the National Anthem. Soca star Machel Montano will open the show at 6 p.m. and perform for one hour.

Beyonce will then take the stage for 90 minutes-from 8 p.m. to 9.30 p.m.

’The excitement of the concert is eminent,’ Suite said.

’People are still going to bmobile outlets and the temporary caravan which was set up at the venue to purchase tickets. I suspect the interest will continue throughout the day.”

He said all ticket outlets and the caravan will be open for sales all day.

To mark the last of the South American leg of the tour, Beyonce will be donating 300 tickets to lucky fans in Trinidad and Tobago.

According to a release from TSTT, the recipients will be chosen by The United Way of Trinidad and Tobago and the tickets will be distributed this morning.

The show, which is the last leg in the singer’s extended world tour to South America, will be her last live performance for 2010.

The two-week run took the entertainer from Brazil to Argentina, Chile and Peru. She played to her biggest live concert audience ever in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where a crowd of 60,000 fans gathered.

Earlier this month, Beyonce took home six Grammy Awards, including the Song of the Year award for ’Single Ladies’. She made history on Grammy night, becoming the female artiste with the most wins in one Grammy year.
