Beyonce fans break tour photo ban

Beyonce's management distributed this approved, flattering photo from her show in London

Beyonce's photo ban on her Mrs Carter Show tour has backfired as fans flooded Twitter with their own snaps.

The Halo singer put strict restrictions on any unapproved photographers sending out photos from the show, but didn't count on her fans tweeting their images of the gig.

She has her own photographer on the tour with her and sends out three to five carefully chosen photos after each show - however, the plan went out the window after her first night at London's O2.

Fans of the 31-year-old star took to Twitter to share their snaps, creating an amateur's eye full round up of the concert.

Included in their photos were some of Beyonce wearing a sparkly blue catsuit, something the audience said was a highlight of the show but which wasn't part of the official pictures.

Those the Single Ladies singer chose to hand out to the media all show her face on to the camera at flattering angles.

In February Beyonce's publicist asked news agencies and websites to remove "unflattering" photos of the star taken during her Super Bowl performance.

One website was even asked to change their article, with the publicist saying: "I am certain you will be able to find some better photos."

Beyonce, who is married to rapper Jay-Z, is on a 65-date world tour which began in Serbia on April 15 and makes its way over to the US in June.

Her show costumes are mainly designed by Julien Macdonald, with a few items by Dsquared2.
