ATLANTA – The A-Scene is on the run as Jay-Z and Beyonce gear up for a two-night engagement at the Benz! So, before you put on your fitted cap and your ‘Singles Ladies’ leotard here’s what you need to know for the big show!
LISTEN UP Beyhive, the countdown is on to get in formation!
We're just hours away from the Queen Bee and her hubby Jay-Z snatching our halos as they run this town this weekend ...with “On the Run: 2”
Before we see the Carters, we'll see DJ Khaled on the ones and twos.
You want another act? Well good because the queen's protege's Atlanta sisters Chloe x Halle, will be sharing songs from their debut album, “The Kids are Alright”.
Joined my partner in crime @frantvhost on the other side of the cam today with @beyonce @parkwoodentertainment recording artists @chloexhalle . I love their music and they are ATL-bred so you know they are southern belles.

Now for the stuff that you need to know to even breath the same air as the power couple:
First off, don’t forget your tickets. Mercedes-Benz is going digital for the concert so make sure you have access to your mobile tickets.
To ensure you won’t have a bad connection at the gate, save your tickets to your Apple or Google Wallet beforehand or even take a screengrab of the tickets on your phone and save them to your photos.
ENTRANCE TO MERCEDES-BENZ STADIUM
You can enter the stadium at any gate for the concert. You will be required to pass through metal detectors and be screened by the Mercedes-Benz security team.
They ask you to give yourself 10 to 15 minutes for entry. Here's a list of times to keep in mind:
- Box Office opens: Noon
- Bag Valet begins: 3 PM
- Gates Open: 5 PM
- Concert begins: 7 PM
TRANSPORTATION TO THE CONCERT
Plan ahead when it comes to your transportation to and from the concert. You have various options when it comes to getting there including rideshares like Uber and Lyft, MARTA (the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena Station), and parking.
If you plan to drive, Mercedes-Benz suggests you purchase your parking beforehand. You can find the various parking locations with ParkMobile HERE.
Parents, if you’re dropping your minors off there is a specific location for you to go. The parent pick up and drop off zones will be at Andrew Young Int’l Blvd (From GWCC Bldg. B toward Marietta St.) and GWCC Bldg. C Bus Lane (Off Northside Dr.).
Just know there is “absolutely no vehicle standing, waiting, or parking permitted” in these locations.
Just like sporting events, the concert is CLEAR BAGS ONLY. If your bag or wallet is larger than your hand it MUST be a clear bag. If it is larger, you can check it for $5 at the closest bag valet tent located at Gate 1, International Plaza (Red brick sidewalk), and the North Suite Entry.
Clear bags that are allowed include: Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12,” one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar)
Small clutch bags include: Bags no larger than 4.5” x 6.5” ( a little larger than a credit card ) with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bag options.
Items not allowed inside the stadium include outside food/drink, noisemakers, laser pointers, selfie sticks, posters, and lights.
You CAN bring in banners, signs, and flags (without poles) but they may not exceed 11” x 17”. Signs must be made of paper or a lightweight material and may not contain offensive material.
You CANNOT bring in cameras with a lens longer than 6” (detachable or non-detachable), laser pointers, noisemakers, tripods, monopods, selfie-sticks, lights, battery packs, and binocular cases.
Large umbrellas are prohibited. An umbrella must be under 33” to be allowed in the building and must remain closed inside.
