BEYONCÉ JAY Z ON THE RUN features the music megastars in their first collaborative tour and premiere concert event produced for HBO debuting exclusively on Foxtel in September.

Although 17-time Grammy winner BEYONCÉ and 19-time Grammy winner JAY Z have recorded numerous hit songs together and have been special guests in each other’s concerts, BEYONCÉ JAY Z ON THE RUN marks the first time the married couple has toured together on the same bill.

The stadium shows began on June 25 in Miami, Florida and have covered 19 concerts in the US plus two shows in Paris during September which will be taped from Paris’ Stade de France to create this special television event. The feature will showcase the superstars performing more than 40 songs made up of both Beyoncé’s and Jay Z’s individual hits as well as their joint tracks including “Crazy in Love” and “Drunk in Love”, plus bespoke original performances created especially for the BEYONCÉ JAY Z ON THE RUN tour.

USA Today said of the tour, “The co-ordination is not just remarkable, it’s the absolute best way that two of the world’s best performers can deliver a show that proves why they are on top together,” while the New York Times hailed it as “a show that acknowledged their two very different sorts of success without diminishing either one.”

The special concert event will premiere on FOX8 Tuesday September 23 at 7.30pm and will be the only way Australian audiences can experience the music and visual spectacle from these two musical powerhouses. Foxtel’s broadcast of BEYONCÉ JAY Z ON THE RUN follows Beyoncé’s feature-length HBO documentary Life is but a Dream, which debuted on Foxtel’s Channel [V] earlier this month.
