"When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking yet," she told the audience in Portugal on Thursday night.
Beyonce said goodbye to her world tour on Thursday, as she broke down into tears while onstage during her last Mrs. Carter Show in Lisbon, Portugal.
"This has been an incredible tour," she told the audience, asking for a spotlight because "I want them to see me."
Before singing "XO" off her recently-released self-titled album, she said, "If you all don’t know, tonight makes 132 shows. Tonight is the last show of the Mrs. Carter Show. We started a year ago and I want to say this has been such a journey.
"In the past year, we’ve been through so much together -- the Super Bowl, shooting the videos, all of these shows," she said of the tour, which began in April 2013 and was the highest grossing female tour of the year. "When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking yet," she said of Blue Ivy.
"I just want you to know that I am so lucky," she continued, pausing to shed some tears. "I’m giving y’all an ugly cry! Thank y’all again. Thank you for allowing me to have a career. And when I fall, you lift me up. When I’m hungry, you feed me. And I just want to give you my light. I dedicate this song to you guys."
