Beyoncé is known for her flawless showmanship, but even she can’t avoid the occasional technical hiccup, as evidenced last night (Aug. 24) during her Renaissance tour stop in Glendale, Az. During the ninth song of the show, “Alien Superstar,” the sound at State Farm Stadium briefly cut out and the performance was halted, with Beyoncé temporarily exiting the stage.

After a few minutes, she in a new outfit and launched into a shortened version of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Lift Off.” By the time she performed “Energy,” two songs later, everything was back on track.

Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour continues tomorrow (Aug. 26) in Las Vegas. Watch fan-shot footage of last night’s incident below.
