Beyoncé returns to HBO for BEYONCÉ: X10, a ten-episode series of concert performances starting June 29. A new four-minute segment will debut every Sunday night at 8:55 p.m. (ET/PT), immediately before the debut of a new episode of the final season of “True Blood” at 9:00 p.m. The performances were shot live in various cities during her recently completed “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.”
Beginning April 15, 2013 in Belgrade, Serbia and concluding March 27, 2014 in Lisbon, Portugal, the sold-out “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” included 132 concerts in 27 countries and 69 cities. Drawing 1.8 million fans over the six legs of the global tour, it was the highest-grossing female solo tour of 2013. Performance highlights from the show will be broadcast on HBO featuring a different set of songs each time. The songs featured are “Blow/Cherry,” “Drunk in Love,” “Ghost/Haunted,” “Flawless/Yoncé,” “Get Me Bodied/Baby Boy/Diva,” “Girls,” “Heaven,” “Partition,” “Why Don’t You Love Me?” and “XO.” Get a taste of it right here & now.
Now for this writer this reminds me of the interstitial clips they used to show back in 1980’s. They offered an occasional music video back then right before the hour or just to fill gaps between movies ending at odd times. If you need a dose of Beyonce then these are for you. Beyoncé was previously seen on HBO in the intimate feature-length documentary LIFE IS BUT A DREAM. Looking back at the post and comments they were not too favorable of that effort, maybe the four-minute clips will fare better. And, who knows, this might just lead to a full-length HBO Concert which used to happen with a lot more frequency back in the day.
