Beyoncé fans, or Beyhives know how to party. Well we can’t blame them, because most of us know how amazing of a performer Beyoncé is.
The University of South Carolina felt the sting of the Beyhives, after hosting the On the Run II concert. The Williams – Brice Stadium will have to replace its football field before the football season opener, because the field was left damaged after the concert.
“We would not have done this if we believed there was a safety issue,” assistant athletic director Clark Cox said, per the Associated Press. “My job and our entire ground staff’s job, our No. 1 priority in everything we do, is safety and welfare of our student-athletes.”
Athletic director Ray Tanner said the school planned on replacing the field when they were picked as a stop on the tour.
Coach Will Muschamp and his players, were among the 40,000 or so, who attended the concert that took about a week to set up, according to ESPN.
Concert promoters paid to replace the turf at the cost of between $150,000 and $200,000, according to the Bleacher Report. A small price to pay to welcome Jay and Bey to your school, maybe. Read the full story on the Bleacher Report here.
