Suri Cruise muffs her night out for Beyonce

The Daily Telegrapph - Australia

She is the reigning queen of girl power, but US superstar Beyonce was a bit too much for Suri Cruise when the three-year-old magazine regular found herself at Beyonce's opening concert in Australia on Tuesday night.

After her final day of filming on horror/thriller "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark," Hollywood A-lister Katie Holmes took her tot along to see the superstar's show, Suri's first concert, at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.

The star mum and daughter decided against hiding away in a private box and instead sat in a roped-off area in the general admission part of the arena, and happily posed for pictures with thrilled young fans.

But Confidential's southern spies report that things did not go to plan when the show got under way, with Suri unimpressed by Beyonce's dazzling opening number, "Crazy In Love."

She put her hands over her ears and turned her head into her mum's shoulder to hide from the flashing lights. Holmes and Suri left the arena after the track, but returned later with Suri wearing industrial earmuffs.

The pair are expected to leave Australia after a 2½ month stay and return home to New York this weekend.

It is understood Holmes will spend the rest of the week attending to post-production commitments on the film.

She will soon be reunited with husband Tom Cruise, who attended a NASCAR event in Virginia in the US with his son Connor on the weekend.
