Beyoncé Makes Nod to The Verve at London's O2 Arena

Beyonce brought her Mrs Carter tour to London’s O2 Arena in spectacular fashion last night (April 29), making a surprising reference to The Verve during her set. 

The nod came during her ballad 'If I Were A Boy', which featured the string motif from The Verve’s 1997 single 'Bitter Sweet Symphony', itself taken from an orchestral version of The Rolling Stones' 'The Last Time'.

Beyonce also covered her former band Destiny's Child's 'Survivor' and sang part of Dolly Parton's 'I Will Always Love You' before closing with ‘Halo' and a brief medley of 'Green Light' and 'Suga Mama'.
