Beyonce paid huge sum to extend Metro running times so fans could travel home after delayed concert

It appears Taylor Swift isn’t the only one to make a heartfelt gesture recently.

Rumor has it, Beyonce paid a huge sum to help fans get home after her concert in Washington DC was delayed.

The singer’s performance was impacted by a weather warning on the night issued off the back of severe weather in the area.

Concertgoers had to wait nearly two hours for a shelter-in-place to end at FedEx Field before the performance began.

This left fans worried they’d struggle to find transport back home.

But, up stepped Beyonce, who paid for extra hours of service from the city’s Metro so her fans wouldn’t be stranded.

What a legend.

Word on the street is that she forked out a shopping $100,000.

This fee covered the cost to run more trains, keep all correlating 98 stattions open so customers could exit, as well as other necessary expenses to ensure services ran smoothly.

It wasn’t the only gesture the star made, though.

During her performance, Beyonce paid tribute to a dancer who was killed in a homophobic attack while dancing to one of her hits.

O’Shae Sibley was targeted at a gas station in Brooklyn for voguing to the sound of Beyonce.

The late professional dancer and choreographer, who was 28 at the time of his death, was out enjyong a night out with his friends when he was killed.

He had stopped at a gas station and got out to dance to the superstar’s much-loved song ‘Renaissance’ when he was accosted by a group of men.

As well as taking a moment to remember her late fan, Beyonce added a tribute to her website.

In black and white text, she penned, ‘REST IN POWER O’SHAE SIBLEY’.
