The premium cabler will air a 10-episode Beyonce concert series, titled “Beyonce: X10,” featuring taped live performances from the star’s Mrs. Carter World Show Tour. The episodes will last four minutes and debut each week before “True Blood,” starting June 29.
Each episode will air at 8:55 p.m. ET/PT, immediately before an episode of the final season of “True Blood” at 9:00 p.m. on Sundays.
HBO previously aired a feature-length documentary about the singer titled “Life Is but a Dream.” The film, which was directed by Beyonce, premiered in February 2013 and was the most-viewed music-oriented special on HBO since 2003.
Included in “Beyonce: X10” will be performances of “Blow/Cherry,” “Drunk in Love,” “Ghost/Haunted,” “Flawless/Yonce,” “Get Me Bodied/Baby Boy/Diva,” “Girls,” “Heaven,” “Partition,” “Why Don’t You Love Me?” and “XO.”
Beyonce recently completed the Mrs. Carter World Show Tour, where the soon-to-be televised concerts were shot live. The sold-out tour started April 13, 2013, in Belgrade, Serbia, and wrapped March 27, 2014, in Lisbon, Portugal. It included 132 concerts in 27 countries and 69 cities.
Beyonce’s most recent album, her self-titled fifth release, was unveiled late last year and has sold more than 2 million units.
