Atlanta, Aug 27 (IANS) A drunken fan created chaos in the midst of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s concert here as he ran onstage and chased after the power couple.

The duo were wrapping up their “On the Run II” set at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and walking toward the back of the stage when the man jumped on the platform and bolted toward them, reports foxnews.com.

Videos taken by concert goers showed backup dancers looking confused until the man started running. Some people in the audience were heard yelling, “Oh My God! Oh my God!”

The unidentified man could not make it too far as the dancers tackled him.

The tour’s team issued a statement saying an “intoxicated male entered the stage.”

“At this point we had a controlled evacuation of all crew on the stage in order to safely diffuse the situation. We are happy to confirm that nobody was hurt during the incident, and Mr. & Mrs. Carter (Beyonce and Jay-Z) are choosing not to press charges against the individual.”
