Harris previously shared a glimpse into what she and husband Doug Emhoff wore for the concert held at FedExField in Landover, Maryland, on social media.

“Thanks for a fun date night, @Beyonce!” Harris wrote on Instagram and Twitter (now known as X).

She also shared in an interview with PEOPLE in October that one of the songs on the Renaissance album, “Break My Soul,” was particularly special to her. 

“I just love that song,” Harris admitted. “I play it all the time. I think it’s one of the anthems for women . . . when [Beyoncé says] ‘you,’ you could be life, you could be a person, you could be a situation. You will not break my soul. I can endure.”

Harris’ financial disclosure reports also revealed that she received tickets to an HBCU Celebration Bowl courtesy of ESPN. The game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta featured her alma mater Howard University as they played against Florida A&M. Those tickets were priced at $1,890.
