Rihanna,Kayne West and Beyonce surprise Hackney bash

Musical royalty make gig memorable

Superstar Rihanna made a surprise appearance ahead of her own bill-topping performance tonight (Sunday) at the Radio 1 mega music festival on Hackney Marshes when she duetted on stage with last night’s headline act, Jay-Z.

And that wasn’t the only surprise for the 50,000 lucky enough to get a ticket because also joing Jay-Z unnanounced on stage to perform was Kanye West.

And although not performing, Jay-Z’s missus, Beyonce, turned up dancing in the mosh pit with Kayne’s respective squeeze, Kim Kardshian.

“This is musical royalty and you could’nt expect to see a line-up like this anywhere else in the world and they’re all here in Hackney,” said one excited fan.
