UPDATE (7/22): HBO has revealed via Instagram that Beyonce and Jay Z's "On the Run" tour special will air Saturday, Sept. 20, at 9 p.m. ET. Watch the announcement here.

UPDATE (7/14): Beyonce just posted a sneak peek of On The Run to Instagram. The HBO special is shot in black and white, but make no mistake: everything about the grey area onstage, backstage and in between looks fierce. Watch the clip below.

Original Story: Miley Cyrus just aired an awesome Bangerz tour special on NBC, and Jay Z and Beyoncé are about to follow suit with a concert broadcast of their very own.

HBO is planning an On the Run Tour special to be filmed during the power couple's September 12 and 13 Paris dates. Those are Jay and Bey's only international gigs for this run, and the feature will include the couple performing over forty tracks.

This isn't their first experience working with HBO. In 2013, Jay Z's Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film premiered on the network; Beyoncé's self-directed Life Is But A Dream documentary debuted via HBO as well, and served as daughter Blue Ivy's official introduction. Bey will also appear on Beyoncé: X10, a 10-episode series of her live performances.

It's not TV. It's HBO—aka the unofficial network of choice for the Mr. and Mrs. Carter shows.
