*HBO president Michael Lombardo just announced that the cable network will air the final stop of Jay Z and Beyonce’s “On the Run” tour.
Cameras will capture the Sept. 12 and 13 shows at Stade de France in Paris – the lone international stops on the tour – for a concert special to air later in the month, Lombardo told the Television Critics Association in Beverly Hills Thursday.
News of the “On the Run” broadcast comes as Beyoncé currently appears on HBO in “Beyoncé: X10,” a ten-episode series of concert performances from her “Mrs. Carter” tour that debut Sunday nights before “True Blood.”
She also aired her intimate feature-length documentary “Life Is But a Dream” on HBO in Feb. 2013. Also, Jay Z’s chose HBO to premiere his video, “Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film” in Aug. 2013.
“On the Run” covers 19 stadiums in the U.S. and two stadium shows in Paris. HBO will capture the couple performing more than 40 songs on their first ever joint tour.
“This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO,” noted Lombardo. “It’s going to be a night to remember.”
