Beyoncé, Blue Ivy, and Jay Z

On Saturday, HBO aired Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “On the Run Tour” special. The concerts took place on September 12 and 13 at Paris’ Stade de France, where the superstar couple performed to a sold-out crowd of 160,000.

Jonas Åkerlund (“Haunted,” “Superpower”) directed the nearly three-hour spectacular, which featured music’s king and queen at their finest plus an appearance from Nicki Minaj, who performed “Flawless (Remix)” with Bey.

They capped off the show with a medley of “Young Forever” and “Halo.” As they watched from a platform in the center of the stadium, the video screens showed home movies of the couple from their wedding, family vacations, and adorable footage of daughter Blue Ivy (check out Jay and Blue doing push-ups together at the 5:40 mark).

“We did it!” said Jay as Bey clicked her heels.

Video: Beyoncé and Jay Z – ‘Bang Bang: Part One’

Beyoncé and Jay Z

Just days after wrapping their “On the Run Tour” with two sold-out shows in Paris, Beyoncé and Jay Z relive the magic in Part 1 of “Bang Bang.”

Directed by filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch and soundtracked by an Ennio Morricone classic, “Bang Bang” is a trilogy of short films starring the couple that was shown during their two-and-a-half-month long tour.

In the black-and-white clip, the Carters play a modern day Bonnie and Clyde as they drive through the desert.

“In my first conversation on the telephone with Jay Z he explained his concept of On the Run,” Rimmasch told Nowness. “He said: ‘We’re not trying to do this literally, it’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliché. On the run from doing the same thing again.”

“Bang Bang” is also being used in the trailer for their “On the Run” HBO special, which airs Saturday.

Jay Z and Beyoncé

In celebration of Beyoncé’s 33rd birthday last week, the Carters escaped to Italy for a romantic and relaxing vacation. Jay Z put his arm around his wife as they strolled through the seaside town of Portofino before boarding a boat to their yacht. Bey looked casual, yet chic in a floral-print bikini and sarong, while Jay kept cool in shorts.

Once on board their private yacht, Blue Ivy had some fun, playing with water balloons, while her mother snapped photos.

The couple will return to the stage for the final two shows on their “On the Run Tour” in Paris on September 12-13. The concerts will be taped for an HBO special airing September 20.

Beyoncé Goes Behind the Scenes of VMA Performance

Beyoncé, Blue Ivy, and Jay Z

It takes a village. A day after celebrating her 33rd birthday, Beyoncé shares some behind-the-scenes footage from her epic MTV Video Music Awards performance. From the choreography to the stage design, we get a first-hand look at all the hard work and team effort that went into putting together the 15-minute medley.

During rehearsals, Bey expresses her frustration about not getting to run through the performance enough times and demands that her dancers paint their bodies white. Shortly before hitting the stage, we see her holding hands with her crew and leading them in a prayer circle.

“God, we imagined being little kids dreaming of this night and we are here,” she says.

After killing her performance and accepting the Video Vanguard Award, she goes backstage and toasts with Jay Z and her team, but it’s Blue Ivy who gives her the best feedback. “Everybody say good job,” says her two-year-old daughter.
