The couple dedicated a performance in last night’s London tour to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire, which took place almost a year ago to the day.

Beyoncé and Jay Z sang “Forever Young” in memory of those who perished as part of a stadium show on their “On The Run II” tour, according to the New York Post.

The fire at the London social-housing building took place on June 14, 2017 and killed 72 people. A tenant’s group had been warning the landlord about fire safety concerns such as blocked exits and malfunctioning fire extinguishers since 2013.

The fire prompted an investigation into the use of flammable aluminum cladding in buildings in the U.K., however the replacement of the material has been slow and fraught. [NYP]Erin Hudson
