Beyoncé treats crew to £17k party

10 May 2013, 07:36

Los Angeles - Beyoncé treated her crew to a £17 000 party to thank them for their hard work during her London concerts.

The 31-year-old singer splashed out on alcohol aplenty for her backing dancers at the Champagne bar at the Andaz Hotel in Liverpool Street, east London, on Sunday night, following the conclusion of her sixth show at The O2.

A source said: "Beyoncé wanted to say thanks to all of the backing dancers, crew and everyone else involved with putting on the six shows."

'Pressure was on'

"Between the lot of them they managed to drink their way through more than £17 000-worth of booze in just a few hours.

"They got stuck in as they knew they had a few days off afterwards. They were still in there at closing time at 04:00."

Despite the big night out, Beyoncé still has gigs to play on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour including the last of three dates in Manchester, North West England, on Thursday and another show in London on 1 June, but she was keen to let her crew indulge after the "pressure" of preparing for her London concerts.

The source added to The Sun newspaper: "They are only part-way through her Mrs. Carter tour, but the pressure was on in London and she was chuffed they all helped her put on a good show."
