Make sure you’re in formation ahead of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s On The Run II concert in Columbia

ATTENTION BEYHIVE: Queen Bey and her king will be in Columbia soon, as you may have heard, and we have some details about what you can put in your bag (swag).

And no, you cannot put your things in a box (to the left, ha) – it has to be a clear bag.

USC officials say Williams-Brice Stadium’s clear bag policy will be implemented for the On The Run II Tour on August 21. The policy will be consistent with the current USC Athletics model and will regulate the size and types of bags that may be brought into the stadium.

Bags that will be permitted are:

  • Clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags that do not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″ — A logo no larger than 4.5″ x 3.4″ can be displayed on one side of a permissible clear bag.
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar)
  • Small clutch bags no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″ — approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap
  • Medically necessary items (after proper inspection at specified gates)

Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to:

  • Purses larger than a clutch bag
  • Briefcases
  • Backpacks
  • Fanny packs
  • Cinch/Drawstring bags
  • Luggage of any kind
  • Computer bags
  • Diaper bags
  • Binocular cases
  • Camera bags
  • Non-approved seat cushions, which include large traditional seat cushions that have pockets, zippers, compartments or covers

Beyoncé and her husband announced their joint tour earlier this year. Shortly after announcing the tour, the couple added extra U.S. tour dates and cities which included Columbia.

With one of the biggest hip-hop concerts taking place at Williams-Brice Stadium on Aug. 21, some Richland School District One schools will dismiss students early.

This will be Beyoncé’s first time performing in Columbia. Guess you can say that up until now, Beyoncé was the best thing Columbia never had.

So make sure your clear bags and book bags are in formation.

Advance parking passes are available for the concert by going to Ticketmaster’s site, visiting the box office, or by calling 1-800-745-3000. Stadium gates open at 5:30 p.m. The concert will start at 7:30 p.m.
