Military Bey Hive.

Beyoncé offered troops stationed in Kuwait and Afghanistan some semblance of normality on NYE when she surprised them with a screening of her highly acclaimed HBO On The Run Tour special.

Troops were surprised when, just after midnight, Beyoncé appeared on a big screen in the room. The pop star explained, amongst the chaos of troops ringing in the New Year, that she was thankful and happy to be able to share the footage with the soldiers and military personnel abroad.

Many of the troops will, of course, not have been able to attend the On The Run Tour Dates or have access to the HBO broadcast so the chance to see it would likely have been quite special for them. 

Soldiers pictured in the video can be heard and seen cheering as well as dancing to certain parts of the show.
