Special will tape in Paris and feature more than 40 songs
HBO is getting ready to duet with Beyonce once again — and this time Jay Z is chiming in.
The network will air a special “On The Run Tour: Beyonce and Jay Z,” which will debut in September, the network said at the Television Critics Association gathering on Thursday.
The special will capture the celebrity couple on their first collaborative tour, taping on Sept. 12 and 13 at the Stade de France in Paris.
The pair will perform more than 40 songs in the special.
“This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO,” Michael Lombardo,president, HBO programming, said of the special. “It’s going to be a night to remember.”
Beyonce previously starred in the documentary, “Beyonce: Life Is But a Dream,” for the network, which also began airing live performances of the “Single Ladies” singer under the banner “Beyonce: X 10″ on Sundays beginning June 29.
