BEYONCE and Jay Z’s show at Hampden Park next month has been given the go ahead by Glasgow council officials.

The star couple were scheduled to perform at Hampden Park on 9 June pending on approval from the local authority’s Licensing and Regulatory Committee.

Today it was confirmed that the committee had approved the concert application, despite local concerns.

Some residents in the Mount Florida area had raised concerns about the impact such large scale events have on the community.

However, Hampden’s owners have reassured the council that they will foot the cleaning bill for the show, which is expected to attract around 48,000 spectators.

Beyonce and Jay Z last toured together in 2014 for the first On The Run tour, which saw them net profits of $95 million.

The Glasgow show is the second night of their current European tour which will see them visit 15 cities in a little over a month.
