Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin presented the key to the city to the superstar couple, who performed Tuesday night at Williams-Brice Stadium as part of their On the Run II Tour.
In a midnight tweet that included a photo of him giving the key to Jay-Z, Benjamin called the show “incredible.”
“It was wonderful to have a chance to recognize the humanitarian & cultural contributions of Mr. & Mrs. Carter,” he wrote. “August 21st was officially “Beyoncé Knowles Carter & Shawn Carter Day” in @ColumbiaSC.”
Up next on the couple’s tour schedule is a stop in Nashville on Thursday, then back-to-back concerts in Atlanta on Saturday and Sunday.
