The Global Citizen Festival trended yesterday evening when the concert live stream was cut off 25 minutes into headliner Beyonce's performance. Global Citizen had announced prior to the event that only those who had earned tickets would be able to view the entire show.
Their statement read: ‘Dear Viewers, Please note that SABC1 will be showing 25 minutes of the Carters’ part of the @GlblCtzn show. Beyonce & Jay-Z’s full show remains exclusive to those who earned their tickets.’

Thank you to all of those around the world who joined us tonight by watching our live stream. We hope you will take action and answer Nelson Mandela's call to #BeTheGeneration to end extreme poverty. #DemandFreedom #DefeatPoverty #GlobalCitizenFestivalSA pic.twitter.com/vOjjU2PbAa— Global Citizen (@GlblCtzn) December 2, 2018
