Jay Z, Beyoncé and DJ Tiesto were paid more than $2 million to perform at a pre-Super Bowl party on Saturday night (01.02.14) in Manhattan.
The couple performed for 6,000 guests at Pier 40 on Manhattan's West Side, while DJ Tiesto took to the decks, and the trio banked huge pay cheques for their night's work, according to the New York Post newspaper.
Hollywood stars including Leonardo Dicaprio and Jamie Foxx were joined by music legend Sir Paul McCartney to watch Beyoncé and her husband perform her single 'Drunk in Love' at the DirecTV Super Saturday party.
The show took place in a specially-constructed 88,000 sq ft stadium - while guests drank in a heated stadium tent which took weeks to build.
Jay, 44, headlined and performed a greatest hits set including his ode to New York City 'Empire State of Mind', before being joined by his wife Beyoncé, 32, to perform their latest collaboration.
The notoriously private pair, who also put on a steamy performance at the Grammy Awards last month, kissed on stage and Jay Z urged the crowd to ''all hail Queen B.''
The event was sponsored by Mark Cuban's Axs TV and Bank of America.
Later on in the evening the couple attended the Roc Nation Sports and Airbnb party at Jay Z's own 40/40 Club.
