HBO will premiere “On the Run Tour: Beyonce and Jay Z” — featuring the stars in their first collaborative tour — in September, the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour.
The special will tape Sept. 12 and 13 at Stade de France in Paris on the only international leg of the married couple’s current tour, with the musicians performing over 40 songs during the lineup.
“This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO,” said HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. “It’s going to be a night to remember.”
Beyonce is featured on HBO’s “Beyonce: X10,” a 10-episode series of concert performances. Jay Z’s “Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film” premiered on HBO in August.
Seventeen-time Grammy winner Beyonce and 19-time Grammy winner Jay Z have collaborated on a number of songs, including “Crazy in Love” and “Drunk in Love,” and have appeared as special guests on each other’s tours, but “On the Run Tour: Beyonce and Jay Z” is their first joint tour. It covers 19 stadiums in the U.S. and two stadium shows in Paris.
