Beyoncé and Jay Z to Broadcast 'On the Run' Tour on HBO
Published Jul 10, 2014Jay Z and Beyoncé, the music world's most powerful husband and wife, are currently taking over the world on their On the Run tour. Fortunately for those who couldn't get tickets, the concert will be turned into a television special.
Billboard reports that HBO will air a special simply called On the Run Tour: Beyoncé and Jay Z. A broadcast date has not yet been set, but the network will film the special on September 12 and 13, when the couple perform at the Stade de France in Paris.
Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming, said, "This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO.... It's going to be a night to remember."
The On the Run tour recently arrived at Toronto's Rogers Centre, and earned a glowing review from Exclaim! in which our reviewer, Sarah Murphy, called the show both "surprisingly poignant" and "insanely fun."
This won't be the first time the Carter-Knowles family has appeared on HBO. Last year, Beyoncé shared her autobiographical Life is But a Dream documentary with the network, while Jay Z shared his extended music video Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film. Beyoncé is currently appearing in Beyoncé: X10, a series of shorts that air before new episodes of True Blood.
