Beyoncé and Jay Z reveal intimate wedding footage at On The Run Tour opening performance

The R&B couple normally keep their private life under wraps

Music powerhouse couple Beyoncé and Jay Z had a special surprise for fans on the opening night of their On The Run Tour.

The “Crazy in Love” couple showed previously unseen footage of their private 2008 wedding.

And if that wasn’t enough to drive the audience wild, the pair went on to play an intimate film depicting the birth of their now two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

Beyoncé, 32, and Jay Z, 44, took to the stage at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida, on Wednesday night.

The couple are well-known for remaining tight-lipped on their personal life and, although the footage projected onto a large screen behind the stage lasted only a few seconds, it was a departure from their usual conduct.

During a rendition of "Young Forever", the pair were seen saying their vows and exchanging rings, before making their way down the aisle.

And in other scenes shown during "Halo", the proud parents were shown cradling Blue Ivy, who was also seen crawling and taking her first steps.

However, despite the candid scenes, the couple are yet to reveal what really happened in last month's infamous elevator incident, when video footage obtained by TMZ apparently showed Jay Z being furiously assaulted by Beyoncé’s sister, Solange Knowles.

The trio were believed to have been attending an afterparty for the 2014 Met Gala Ball.

Following the leak, they broke their silence only to say that they were "united". In a statement to the Associated Press they said "families have problems and we're no different".

Beyoncé and Jay Z are touring across the US until 6 August, before travelling to Paris to play at the Stade de France on 12 and 13 September.
