Superstar couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z have pushed divorce and infidelity rumours behind them to put on an incredible first tour together.

Their On The Run Tour was launched in Miami on Wednesday, and the chemistry between husband and wife was tangible on the night.

The couple put on a show of solidarity by ending the concert with a video montage covering the past 11 years of their relationship. The montage included a video of their wedding that has not been released before. It showed Beyoncé in a white, strapless bustier gown as she meets a beaming Jay-Z in the aisle.

The montage also included pictures of their daughter, Blue Ivy. Fans were treated to shots of her learning to walk and running in the garden, as well as of the family relaxing on a yacht.

Divorce rumours began swirling when a video emerged in May of Beyoncé’s younger sister, Solange Knowles, kicking and punching her brother-in-law in a lift at the Met Gala awards. Jay-Z’s bodyguard had to step in to separate the two.

Reports that the fight was about Jay-Z’s attendance at pop princess and Beyoncé rival Rihanna’s afterparty sparked further rumours. It was also reported that Jay-Z was cheating on his wife with R&B star Mya.

Gossip websites also reported a pregnant Beyoncé was on the verge of divorcing him.

But if Wednesday night’s concert is anything to go by, there is no truth to the rumours.

The couple undertook solo tours last year. Beyoncé embarked on a 100-date Mrs Carter Show world tour, while Jay-Z had his hands full with the Magna Carter World Tour and the Legends of the Summer Stadium tour with pop star Justin Timberlake.

The joint tour – involving 22 stops in the US – was finally confirmed in May. They have since added dates for Paris in September, but none for South Africa – yet.
