Fifa World Cup 2014: Beyoncé to Highlight Opening Ceremony With Paul McCartney?

Categories: News, Worldwide

Speaking of banner years, Beyoncé definitely had a great 2013, and it looks like her 2014 will be just as busy and prosperous.
Hot on the heels of the platinum success of her latest album, the rumors have begun swirling that Mrs. Carter will be performing at the 2014 World Cup with legendary Beatle Paul McCartney!

The rumors first began swirling back in September, when a reputable Brazilian reporter broke the news. His word was taken seriously because he was the first, and the only, Brazilian reporter to correctly report about Beyoncé’s tour of the country at the time. According to The Examiner, Ancelmo Gois of O Globo, a major newspaper based in Brazil, said McCartney and Beyoncé would both be playing Brazil next year in concerts to coincide with the World Cup there in 2014. The show has not yet been officially announced by Paul McCartney.

“Beyoncé e Paul McCartney vão voltar ao Brasil em 2014. Eles farão o megashow da Copa do Mundo na Praia de Copacabana,” he wrote. A rough translation from Google: “Beyonce and Paul McCartney will return to Brazil in 2014. They will make the World Cup mega concert on Copacabana Beach.” He said FIFA and Control Room are organizing the shows.

What’s not clear, though, is whether the two will perform together or where the two will have separate performances for the same event. A video put out by Brazilian newswire Globo suggests that they will, indeed, perform together, but definitely not for a duet. The same site reports that the two superstars’ performances are part and parcel of “great cultural attractions.”

How do you think this is all going to go down — duet, or separate performances? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! And, from everyone here at The Latin Post, we wish you all a safe and prosperous new year!
