Jay Z and Beyoncé’s On the Run Tour heading to HBO
It seems as if HBO has found a way to alleviate the ever growing bitterness that’s growing from those that haven’t been able to attend what is arguably the biggest tour of the summer.
Jay-Z and Beyonce’s “On The Run Tour” began last month and continues to plow through the major baseball and football fields throughout North America. Two international dates are set for September 12 and 13 at the Stade de France in Paris, where HBO intends to tape and produce the concert into a full-length film.
Throughout the tour, the couple has been performing 42+ songs to the raised hands of thousands during sets lasting more than two hours.
“This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO,” said Michael Lombardo, programming president for the television network in a press statement. “It’s going to be a night to remember.”
The 25-second trailer released promoting the tour shows footage from the previous shows.
This won’t be the first time the couple have teamed up with HBO to produce some highly anticipated TV specials. In 2013, Beyonce’s full-length documentary Life is but a Dream premiered on HBO, as well as the 10-episode series BEYONCÉ: X10, which featured performances by the Queen B herself. Hov’s Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film was also produced by HBO in August.
There is no official release date for the made for TV film as of yet.
