Beyonce and Jay Z‘s first-ever joint tour is coming to HBO in September - meaning, the hysteria will be televised. HBO’s On the Run Tour: Beyonce and Jay Z special will tape Sept. 12 and 13 at the Stade de France in Paris, the only international leg of the tour, the network announced July 10.
With On the Run, the hip-hop royal couple has fully established its landmark relationship with HBO. Early last year, the network aired Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream, which marked the TV debut of Blue Ivy Carter. Later, it debuted Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film - Jay Z’s extended "Picasso Baby" video filmed inside Chelsea’s Pace Gallery, as further proof of his still-growing crossover appeal.

HBO’s ties with Beyonce and Jay Z are particularly interesting, because while the former is a notoriously private person, the latter can be cagey in interviews. Life Is But A Dream nad Picasso Baby were immaculately curated. Neither of them were particularly revealing, but that barely matters given the couple’s enormous influence. By now, fans would do anything to get a closer look.
