Jay Z and Beyonce are officially On the Run. The duo kicked off their joint tour in Miami on Wednesday, introducing a colossal 42-song setlist that spans the performers' entire careers (except, sadly, the Destiny's Child years). Foremost, we must give the Carters ups for opening with "'03 Bonnie and Clyde," a throwback to the innocent "Are they dating or not?" days. Otherwise, the tour is as expected: grand, full of costume changes and lined with fog machines that envelop Queen Bey and her partner in crime in a sultry cloud of smoke.

"Early on, it becomes apparent that this is a totally integrated performance," Erica K. Landau wrote for USA Today. "Sure, it gives Beyonce time for her phenomenal costume changes, but the coordination is not just remarkable, it's the absolute best way that two of the world's best performers can deliver a show that proves why they're on top together."

On the Run is on track to become one of the most lucrative concerts in history. Here's a peek at the tour's inaugural night, including video clips and the setlist:
