Ever since Jay-Z was announced as an Austin City Limits Music Festival headliner, it was widely speculated that his better half, superstar Beyoncé (maybe you’ve heard of her) would be joining him.
We even speculated ourselves: “There’s been rampant speculation about whether or not Beyoncé would make an appearance at ACL Fest. Queen Bey has not played Austin since the early aughts, when Destiny’s Child played the Star of Texas Rodeo (then called Rodeo Austin). We at Team 360 have been conservative on the ‘Yoncé/ACL odds…Beyoncé is no ordinary human being, but she’s a rigorous perfectionist who wouldn’t hit a stage unless she felt 300% ready.”
Sadly, Queen Bey did not perform during her husband’s set Friday night on the American Express stage at Zilker Park. But that didn’t stop her fans on social media from wondering where she was.
Better luck next time, y’all. Hov is on next weekend’s lineup, but a Beyoncé appearance isn’t likely next Friday either. But there’s always a chance.
