Beyonce closed the first leg of her Formation World Tour not by declaring triumph for filling stadiums around North America during the past seven weeks but by paying her respects for last weekend's murder victims in Florida.

Introducing the closing number, "Halo," as "a song about love" on Tuesday night at Detroit's Ford Field, Beyonce dedicated it "to all of the family members who lost family members in Florida" -- indicating she may have meant the victims from Sunday morning's Pulse nightclub shootings in Orlando and former The Voice contestant Christina Grimmie, who was fatally shot after a concert Friday night, also in Orlando, by Kevin James Loibl, who then killed himself.
