Waiting for Beyoncé: From Afterparty to Eternity

Houston loves Beyoncé. Monday, July 15th, 2013 will forever be remembered as the night she owned H-Town, performing a monster 24-song set at a sold-out Toyota Center show. Fans lined up from early in the morning for a show that began far after sunset, all in hopes of basking in Her Highness' glow for an hour or two.

Of course, ever the diva, and wanting to avoid the type of unflattering photos that hit the interwebs after her performance at this year's Super Bowl Big Game, the media was prohibited from attending the concert for professional photography. As a concert photographer, this decision broke my heart.

But wait, what's this? An "official" Mrs. Carter Show Afterparty invitation in my e-mail inbox?! Could it be true? Would Queen B, and by extension Jay-Z, possibly, just possibly attend an afterparty... at Warehouse Live?!
