Beyoncé had £1,000 worth of meat delivered to her entourage before her concert in Manchester last week. The Hold Up hitmaker made the mighty meaty order consisting of 200 gammon steaks, 200 chicken thighs, 140 chicken supremes and 100 boneless chicken fillets with local butchers WH Frost.


And fans who had purchased VIP tickets for the Formation World Tour costing around £200 were given the added bonus of six whole fillet steaks to gnaw among them.

And that’s not all, the singer’s tour rider also demanded 12 ice-cream vans to sit backstage at the Emirates Old Trafford ground in Manchester.

A source said: “Working for Beyoncé is gruelling labour but she makes sure her team is well fed. The butcher’s shop was in a bit of a panic, as the order came in last minute, but they were told it had come personally from Beyonce and had to be met before she took to the stage on Tuesday,” added the source.
