Jay-Z and Beyoncé play Safeco Field Wednesday

Mr. Carter and Mrs. Carter — better known as the pop-music royal couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé — have been celebrating life and love together with erotic abandon on their “On the Run” tour, which opened in Miami on June 25, despite sizzling rumors that their marriage is on the rocks.

Whether they are still “Drunk in Love” or not, from all reports, the show’s a dazzler, including lickety-split choreography, multiple costume changes, a parade of solo and duo hits (“99 Problems,” “Crazy in Love,” “Holy Grail”) and a thematic black-and-white film about being on the lam to set up the opener, “’03 Bonnie and Clyde.”

Jay-Z and Beyoncé

8 p.m. Wednesday, July 30, Safeco Field, 1250 First Ave., Seattle; $44-$254 (ticketmaster.com).
