HBO’s Beyonce-Jay Z ‘On the Run Tour’ Documentary Slayed Fans: The Best Tweets

The superstar couple ruled Twitter on Saturday during the airing of their French concerts on the premium cable channel

Twitter was on fire Saturday night while HBO aired Beyonce and husband Jay Z’s two-hour concert documentary of their “On the Run Tour.”

Featuring the superstars in their first collaborative tour – and their first HBO concert event – the special was taped on Sept. 12 and 13 at Stade de France in Paris during the only international leg of their recent tour.

Taking turns on stage, Beyonce made several makeup and costume changes throughout the concert, each outfit inspiring their own lot of Twitter reactions.

Then, there was the music. The special included performances of more than 40 songs, including “Crazy In Love,” “Drunk in Love,” “Girls,” a performance of “Flawless” with rapper Nicki Minaj and, of course, a performance of the duo’s “03 Bonnie and Clyde.” Beyonce also did a cover of Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor,” which became a highlight of the night.

The couple have been alluding to the 1930s bank-robbing couple, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, for years now — at least since Beyonce lent her vocals to 2002 Jay Z single bearing the robbers’ names when the couple had been dating for about a year already. It is an “us against the world” imagery that surely makes a point as divorce reports swirl around them.
