Beyonce and Jay Z's 'On the Run' tour coming to HBO

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s multi-platform pop-culture domination continues — it has just been announced that their first joint tour, On the Run, will debut in September and air exclusively on HBO. The duo will perform more than 40 songs in the special.

The taping will take place on September 12 and 13 at the Stade de France in Paris, On the Run’s sole international stop. The tour began in Miami’s Sun Life Stadium on June 25 and ends with the two-night stand Paris on September 13.

The two are no strangers to HBO: Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter World Tour is currently being broadcast as a 10-episode series of concert performances, BEYONCÉ:X10, and in February 2013 she was seen in the feature-length documentary, Life Is But a Dream. Additionally, Jay Z’s Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film premiered in August 2013.

Destiny's Child reunites (again) (sort of) -- VIDEO

michelle-williams-video.jpg

Destiny’s Child announced its breakup all the way back in 2005, but the group has made a pretty regular habit of periodically reuniting. Usually that happens when Beyoncé, Kelly, and Michelle are releasing yet another greatest hits compilation, but as we pointed out recently, the trio’s best-known lineup recently got together to record a track for Michelle Williams’ new gospel-oriented album Journey to Freedom. Michelle may not be the Child with the most successful solo career, but “Say Yes,” with its dancehall drums and light dusting of squiggly EDM synths, is worthy of summer jam status.

Williams just dropped the video for “Say Yes.” She not only got her former bandmates to appear in it, but also got Beyoncé to rock her DC-era braids again. Solange, who contributed backup vocals, doesn’t appear, though she’s still getting a lot of traction from her last video role.

Michelle Williams debuts gospel track featuring Beyonce, Solange, and Kelly Rowland -- LISTEN

Journey

Get ready to lose your breath: It’s a Destiny’s Child reunion (plus Solange tagged along!).

For Michelle Williams’ upcoming gospel album, Journey to Freedom, she brought together her favorite independent women to give her an assist on lead single “Say My Name Yes,” based on the popular Nigerian hymn. Backed by Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Solange, the upbeat track takes the inspirational lyrics and throws them over a reggae beat. Williams has performed the track for the past several months by herself, but this is the first time fans have heard it with the other voices.

In addition to the album, Williams will next be seen in the upcoming Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour, where she’ll play the role of Mary Magdalene.

This is the only Beyoncé- and Solange-related news of the last couple of weeks, so this song should be the only thing you are possibly thinking about regarding the Knowles family. Everything’s great — just two sisters who love each other hanging out with Michelle Williams + Kelly Rowland. Listen to “Say Yes” below: READ FULL STORY

Bon Jovi has year's top-grossing global tour

Bon Jovi not only has the year’s top tour, but the rock band has achieved a career high.

The New Jersey-based act’s worldwide tour grossed $259.5 million this year, topping Pollstar’s annual top 20 list and setting a record for the band itself.

Beyoncé is second with $188.6 million. She ended her tour last week in Brooklyn. Pink, Justin Bieber, and Bruce Springsteen round out the top five.

The global concert business scored a record year with the top 20 tours, earning $2.43 billion in primary ticket sales. It generated $1.96 billion last year.

The top 20 list also included Taylor Swift, Elton John, Rihanna, Depeche Mode and One Direction. The Rolling Stones’ comeback tour ranked twelfth, a notch under Paul McCartney.

Beyonce explains how she got 'Drunk on Love' for new album -- VIDEO

beyonce-self-titled-part-3.jpg

There’s no need to let post-holiday blues get you down — not when Beyoncé has given us all yet another visual present. (Technically, the clip was released Dec. 25 — but you spent that day spending time with friends and family instead of trolling the Internet for new Beyoncé videos, right? Riiight?)

This latest clip is the third installment in Bey’s introspective “mini art feature” “Self-Titled,” which goes behind the scenes of the diva’s record-breaking surprise album — er, “details Beyoncé’s mind-set and artistic vision throughout the making of the entire project.”

Part 3, “Run ‘N Gun,” focuses on a trio of tracks: “Drunk on Love,” the one about how great it is to share a marital bed with Jay-Z; “No Angel,” which boasts a gritty video shot in Houston’s Third and Fourth Wards; and “Yoncé,” the one about Queen B’s fiercer-than-Sasha-Fierce new alter ego. Beyoncé also uses it to explain her whole album’s general aura and strategy: “It’s been interesting the last few videos — we’ve been like, deciding what we’re going to do as we’re there,” she says. “And there’s something about that freedom that is different for me, ’cause I usually plan things. I’m trying to rebel against perfection.”

See the rebellion — plus Beyoncé stalking across a beach at night wearing a bathing suit and carrying a trophy, as you do — below.

Beyonce gets down with grills and girls in new 'Yonce' video -- WATCH

Still haven’t gone to the trouble of downloading Beyoncé, the star’s self-titled surprise visual album? (Who could blame you — all that clicking!) If so, you’re in luck — because its super sexy “Yoncé” video is now available for free online.

Who, exactly, is Yoncé? Just consider her a fiercer Sasha Fierce — tricked out with grills, a belly ring, and outfits like a bondage-inspired orange bathing suit. She’s also pals with supermodels Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, and Chanel Iman.

“I wanted to do something sexy and provocative, but not so overt,” video director Ricky Saiz told New York Magazine shortly after Beyoncé’s release. “I feel like the Mileys and the Rihannas have that covered and this was more sophisticated. There are a lot of references to nineties eroticism and Madonna videos. We shot it against one wall for the most part, so I was looking a lot of Carlo Molino photos. I feel like they are some of the sexiest photographs ever taken of women. They are so simple and voyeuristic and raw.”
