Beyoncé had to be rescued after a floating stage malfunctioned in the middle of a concert as part of the On The Run II Tour.
At the Warsaw stop of the Carters' massive joint trek this weekend, Queen Bey found herself stuck mid-air when a setpiece did not sink back into stage-level. According to videos posted by fans who were present at the concert, the mishap happened during the closing song when the 36-year-old and her husband, Jay-Z, were performing "Young Forever."

However, while the raised platform stopped working, the ever so professional singer just kept on performing. The mom of three thanked the fans for coming, her backup dancers for the great show, and the crew for the amazing set pieces.
On the background, home videos play on the giant screen that embellished the stage.
The video below shows the exact moment that the stage malfunctioned and how Beyoncé and Jay-Z reacted to the mishap. Another video shows the crew bringing in a step-ladder to bring the Grammy-winning singer back to the ground.
In a video posted by a fan page, several men assist the world-renowned diva who was wearing stiletto boots as she struggled to climb down the ladder.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z kicked off the On The Run II joint tour back last month in Wales. They have been performing in several venues in Europe, but this is the first time that a set has malfunctioned.
Beyoncé Being A Pro During Concert Mishaps
After more than a decade in the music industry, the Lemonade singer is pretty much a pro when it comes to dealing with concert mishaps. Although she works hard to make sure that all aspects of her concerts are perfect and choreograph, things do not always go as planned.
Take, for example, that incredibly hyped and critically acclaimed headlining performance at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April. During the second weekend, while going through the choreography, Beyoncé attempted to lift her sister Solange onstage, and failed. Both singers fell, but they laughed it off and continued the performance.
At a concert in Montreal, while singing "Halo," the former member of Destiny's Child got her beautiful lioness mane caught in a fan. However, as they say, the show must go on. Queen Bey kept singing while a crew tried to get her hair out of the fan.
There was also that one time she sneezed in front of 40,000 people during her Formation tour in 2016.
