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.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z to Go “On the Run”

Remember that Jay-Z and Beyoncé tour rumor we were on the fence about a few months ago? Well, maybe we should have listened for once because the tour has now been confirmed to be real. Looks like fans of the power couple will need to cancel their upcoming Summer plans because the Carters are taking over.

A few weeks ago, rumors began about this massive tour, but the only thing confirmed was plans to have Jay-Z’s “Made in America” Festival have a version of it take place in Los Angeles. Now, the power duo will be taking the act on the road. The “On the Run” joint tour is fitting named after, we hope, their “Bonnie and Clyde ’03” track.

The 16-date tour will begin in Miami at Sun Life Stadium on June 25 and hit up cities such as Philadelphia,  Chicago, Atlanta,  San Francisco and several more.

Good news for Beyoncé’s fan club, The Beyhive; they get first dibs on tickets beginning their pre-sales at 8 a.m. tomorrow.
