Jay Z and Beyoncé and returning to HBO this fall. Music’s hottest couple are bringing their collaborative “On the Run” tour to the cable network. Called ON THE RUN TOUR: BEYONCÉ AND JAY Z, the television concert will feature a taping of shows on Sept 12 and 13 at the Stade de France in Paris. The special will feature the two superstars performing over 40 songs from their solo catalogues, along with a handful of collaborations including their latest hit “Drunk In Love.”
“This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO,” says HBO’s President of Programming Michael Lombardo. “It’s going to be a night to remember.” The couple’s relationship with HBO runs strong as Jay Z debuted Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film back in August 2013, while Beyoncé premiered her Life is But a Dream documentary last February, and appears in BEYONCÉ: X10, a ten-episode series of concert performances that debuts every Sunday night before True Blood.
A press release does not indicate when in September the concert special will air. UPDATE: Check out the official trailer below. UPDATE: HBO announces the special will air on September 20 at 9pm EST.
