Jay-Z and Beyonce Attend Grizzly Bear Show in Brooklyn

A love-in between Solange Knowles and Grizzly Bear members Ed Droste and Chris Bear has been developing on Twitter in recent times. And Solange clearly holds some influence over her famous sibling, as she brought Beyonce and Jay-Z to see Grizzly Bear play on the Williamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn yesterday afternoon (Aug 30).


Chaos ensued as the couple turned up at the show, and they outshined the appearance of New York Senator Chuck Schumer, who paraded around the park behind someone holding a sign saying ‘Meet Chuck Schumer.’ With P. Diddy showing up in an Arctic Monkeys mosh pit recently, it can only be a question of time before some serious indie-rap musical collaborations are on the cards


The surreal events were capped by an impressive set from Grizzly Bear, who played to around 6,000 people, with plenty of others unable to gain entrance left outside. Victroia Legrand from opening act Beach House joined Grizzly Bear for one song, although anyone who spied Beyonce or Jay-Z were probably anticipating something else altogether when Droste said: ‘We’d like to welcome a very special guest on stage.”

I like how they're just in the crowd with everyone else.

you tell Dave 1 from Chromeo is there right in front of the camera when he turns around during the last few seconds of this video. awesome


Is this why they shut down the "free" concert at least 2 hours before it was scheduled to end - leaving would-be concert-goers literally on the curb? Celebs and Politicans crashing the party for everyone else . . . again. Joy.




This is directed towards SLINKY. Every poolparties show this summer has been the same, no one gets in after around 6. There are only a certain number of guests that are allowed in, try showing up on time its not a free "the cure" concert its GRIZZLY BEAR


so this is why i didn't get in. screw that.



why arent ppl mauling them for autographs?

Because Grizzly Bear fans usually aren't Jay and Beyonce fans. They also arent starstruck celeb seekers like the majority of the country. Maybe they have respect?

chuck t

yea I was like literally right out of view of that video. I think the reason no one was mauling them was because of the 7 foot tall body guard they had. haha. But yea we barely got into the show. We were outside of the gates and just happened to get in. Great show


Here's a better video:
