[Updated]  Beyonce and Jay-Z shook the Rose Bowl along with most of West Pasadena on Saturday night for the first of two weekend “On The Run 2″ tour performances.

The hours-long show drew rave reviews from fans who called it “amazing” and “incredible.”

Other celebrities including Gwen Stefani and Oprah Winfrey were seen in the audience, according to social media.

At least one neighbor complained the bass from the concert literally shook his house and he reportedly called police.

An earlier Rose Bowl advisory had cautioned the event’s noise level would be high and that residents should anticipate hearing sound from the concerts, and sound checks (today from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.).

The Saturday performance drew an official attendance of 56,056, according to a city official. Tickets remain available for Sunday’s set, which starts today at 7:30 p.m.

The parking lots at the Rose Bowl will open at 3:30 p.m. The Rose Bowl Happy Hour is from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m.

This morning the Recreational Loop around the Rose Bowl will be closed from 10:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. although the Equestrian Loop will remain open at all times.

Rose Bowl officials said stadium lights will remain on for most of the evening into the early morning hours through Tuesday for safety and security purposes during load-in, preparation, and load-out.

Shuttle service from the Parsons parking area begins at 4:30 p.m. and the stadium gates open at 6 p.m.

Residents should anticipate the heaviest traffic impact on Sunday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. and again from 10:30 p.m. to past midnight.

Residents with any questions or concerns on the event days are advised to contact the Rose Bowl Event Day Resident Hotline, (626) 397-4141, between 9 a.m. and 12 midnight.
