Meet The Guy Who Couldn't Stop Reading At Beyoncé's World Tour

The Internet's gone crazy over this mystery bookworm

There's at least one person in the world who hasn't been slayed by Beyoncé's awesomeness: This dude reading a book at the Formation World Tour in Raleigh.

Bey fan Michelle Gardner first spotted the mystery bookworm, who immediately captivated the Internet for his ability to straight-up ignore Beyoncé.

So what was he doing there?

Well, the mystery reader is a mystery no more. Meet George Papageorgiou, 66. He and his wife, Helen, had been working concessions for their church at the concert venue. When their shift was over, the couple found a nice place to sit and catch up on their reading. Papageorgiou's book? The Greek version of Danube Pilot by Jules Verne (Papageorgiou is from Greece).

"I find Beyoncé a great show woman, very attractive," Papageorgiou told ABC11, Raleigh's local news station. "Her music? Eh, fine, but not my style. I listen to '50s, '60s, '70s, and a lot of Greek music."

And, because you're probably wondering: No, the couple didn't buy crazy expensive tickets to get into the show. They were working. Sorry, Bey.
