Weren’t able to get ticket to the mega tour that is Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s “On the Run” Tour?
Don’t worry, because it looks like HBO has gotten the rights to air the full concert in a special for the cable network.
On the Run Tour: Beyoncé and Jay-Z will feature up to 40 songs recorded during the power couple’s September 12 and 13 shows at Paris’ Stade de France. With the knowledge that we have of the setlists from the previous “On the Run” stops, songs such as “Drunk in Love,” “Holy Grail” (with Beyoncé filling in for Justin Timberlake), a “Partition” remix by HOV, and a tribute to Michael Jackson will, most likely, be included.
“This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO,” said HBO’s President of Programming, Michael Lombard. “It’s going to be a night to remember.”
In the past, HBO has had a good relationship with the Carters and specials concerning them. The network previously debuted Jay-Z’s video for “Picasso Baby” and aired Beyoncé’s Life is But a Dream documentary. The cable network has also scored a 10-episode series which chronicles the pop star’s 2013 “The Mrs. Carter Show” world tour titled, Beyoncé: X10.
The “On the Run” Tour became one of the most anticipated tours for the Summer with only 13 tour dates which kicked off at the end of June at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
Though the special is not scheduled to air until September, it’s something for fans of the power-couple to look forward to if they were not fortunate enough to get tickets to the shows.
