This weekend Beyoncé will return to the stage after nearly a year, performing four concerts in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The “Countdown” singer, most recently dubbed the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” by People, will perform during the official opening weekend of Revel Resort and Casino.
The first three nights of her concerts sold out in less than sixty seconds after going on sale, thus prompting Beyoncé to take to the stage for a fourth night. Tonight’s concert will be the first time she has performed live since the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, as well as her first performance in Atlantic City since her concert in 2007 at the Trump Taj Mahal.
Beyoncé just released a behind-the-scenes video, Making of Revel Part 1, which gives fans a sneak peak into her 8 weeks of preparation for her concerts.
“It is exciting. I feel a little nervous. I’m enjoying being a mother, it’s like going back to my old job. It’s a little strange,” she said. “But it’s important that you don’t lose yourself and you still have your own passions. I’m back to work. I’m back to business.”
The 16-time Grammy winner also revealed that she hopes these concerts bring her closer to her fans.
“What I’m trying to say with this show is, ‘Yes I had a baby and it just made me even more grounded and even more like you.”
