Kevin Mazur/WireImage via ABC(NICE, France) -- As a warmup for her headlining spot this weekend at England's famous Glastonbury festival, Beyonce took the stage in Nice, France, Monday night for her first concert in well over a year.  In addition to her own hits, Beyonce performed quite a unique medley for fans at the concert.  She started with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," moved onto Prince's "The Beautiful Ones" -- a track she performed during her 2009 tour -- and finished with, of all things, Kings Of Leon's "Sex on Fire."  The video of the medley was available online for a brief time, but was then pulled by Beyonce's people.

Beyonce and her all-female band will continue their brief tour of France Wednesday in the city of Lille and then Thursday in the city of Amneville.  Then it's on to Glastonbury, where B will share the stage on Sunday with the likes of rock legend Paul Simon.
