8. Beyonce (2011)
Beyoncé is well known for her sold out amphitheater and stadium performances that pull out all the stops, but in August of 2011 the early pregnant King Bey changed things up a bit with an intimate residency at the Roseland Ballroom. She performed songs from her fourth studio album, 4, and with a 20-piece, all-female band behind her. The concert showcased a side of Beyoncé she wanted the world to see. If you missed the show that sold out in one minute, you can buy a copy of the DVD 4 Intimate Nights with Beyoncé to get a glimpse of the once-in-a-lifetime performance she gave on the Roseland stage to an audience of 3,200 fans.
