The sold-out show was part of the powerhouse duo’s “Legends of Summer” tour.

The hip-hop mogul and pop superstar opened the show together, the stage glowing in red lights.

The concert included mega-hits from both performers.

Organizers tried to ease traffic congestion by hosting a daytime picnic in the park before the main event.

Metro also extended the hours on its rail lines and the Orange and Silver Lines until early Monday following the show.
