Beyonce made certain to pull out all the stops as her I Am… Sasha Fierce tour opened in Vancouver, Canada last night.
The pop diva took to the air after strapping herself into a harness to fly above the crowd during the first night of her new tour.
But for once the super-confident all-round entertainer looked a little bit ill at ease.

Beyonce, 27, slipped into a harness and was hoisted high into the air, but she appeared a little wobbly as she revealed a whole lot of leg in a short gold costume teamed with high heeled black patent shoes.
The singer, who is married to rapper Jay Z, has expressed a wish to be the first black Wonder Woman.
And likened landing the role to the election of Barack Obama, whose campaign she backed. She recently revealed she has met executives at DC Comics and Warner Brothers, who own the rights to the iconic figure.
Luckily for her Wonder Woman doesn’t actually have the power to fly, instead she has an invisible plane.
The singer who has dominated the music world since her early days as a teenager in group Destiny’s Child has reinvented herself for a gloriously over-the-top tour which is set to arrive in London next month.
One Canadian newspaper said: ‘Beyoncé twisted all the theatrics into her musical performance flawlessly, demonstrating her many talents as an artist.’
She premiered her new show which sees Miss Knowles assume a dual role as Beyonce, and alter-ego Sasha Fierce, complete with designs by Parisian couturier Thierry Mugler.

Beyonce chose Mugler to design her entire tour wardrobe, and it’s certainly not for the shy and retiring type.
She fell in love with Mugler, who closed his couture line in 2003, after viewing his work in the Costume Institute’s ‘Superheroes’ exhibit in May.
Beyonce comes to Britain in May. She will be at Birmingham on May 23, London May 25 and Manchester May 27.

Meanwhile rumours abound that Destiny’s Child are set to reform for a new album.
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton reports that the trio are contractually obliged to produce a new disc for their label.
But it could be at least a year before former bandmates Kelly Rowland, Beyonce and Michelle Williams, get back into the studio.
