Fresh off two high-powered shows at NRG Stadium over the weekend of September 15 and 16 with husband and rap mogul Jay-Z, Beyoncé posted rare behind-the-scenes footage of the concert on Instagram. The couple is currently on their On the Run II tour.

In the video, Queen Bey shared an intimate moment with the rapper backstage, with Jay-Z asking her, "You ready, B? Let's go get 'em."

Fans might also recognize the question from their duet "'03 Bonnie and Clyde," one of their first hits together. Beyonce also gives a shout out to her hometown of Houston in the video, mentioning the 713.

As expected, Bey and Jay drew some star-power to the show.

Astros ace Justin Verlander and his model wife Kate Upton caught the tour on September 16 after Verlander threw 11 strikeouts in seven innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Teammates Carlos Correa and fiancee Daniella Rodriguez, and Tony Kemp and his wife, Michelle, were also dancing in the crowd.

Backstage, former Houston Texan Andre Johnson cheesed with Jay-Z, while members of Houston rap royalty, including Bun B, Slim Thug, and Paul Wall watched the throne with DJ Khaled, who is also part of the tour.

The show was also full of surprises for at least one fan who won a $100,000 scholarship from Beyonce and Jay-Z during DJ Khaled's set on Sunday, September 16. According to the Boys and Girls Clubs Houston, senior Alezae U. is a student at Galveston Ball High School. She will be the first person in her family to go to college.

Fans who missed the the Houston shows might consider a road trip: Beyoncé and Jay-Z have a few days off before their next show September 19 in Phoenix.
