Help Us Find This Dad Who Read a Book at Beyoncé’s Raleigh Show

While I have been witness to many things at Beyoncé concerts through the years—screaming, fainting, making out, people too tipsy from drink, too tipsy from smoke, too tipsy from the emotional magnitude of seeing their Queen Bey in her natural and unfiltered life form—I can honestly say I have never before seen anyone calmly reading a book, as this gentleman happened to be doing at her performance Wednesday night in Raleigh, North Carolina.

While young sir is not exactly in formation (nor does he appear to have ever heard “Drunk in Love”), he does seem preternaturally relaxed and frankly the definition of unbothered, which is apparently another effect of Bey’s voice upon your brainwaves, as well as one key facet to living your best life. But then, I don’t want to proffer conjecture as fact, which is why we at Jezebel are dying to get this fellow on the line to ask him a few questions about his experience last night. (FOR INSTANCE: “WHAT ARE YOU READING?”)

Are you this man, or do you know him? Can you help us get in touch? If so, please email me at the address below or at

This man is too fucking adorable! It’s probably his grandkids he brought to the concert, tho.
