The On the Run Tour is the ongoing co-headlining stadium tour by American R&B recording artist Beyoncé and rapper Jay-Z. The joint tour came shortly after Beyoncé and Jay-Z had finished their own solo tours; The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour (2013-2014) and the Magna Carter World Tour (2013-2014).
The tour name spins off from the 2013 song "Part II (On the Run)", found in Jay-Z's album Magna Carta Holy Grail, in which Beyoncé features. An official poster for the tour was released along with the announcement of the venture, showing Beyoncé and Jay-Z embracing whilst dressed in black ski masks, following the criminal 'on the lam' narrative found in the couples' 2002 first single together, "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" and "Part II (On the Run)".
To promote the tour, a faux movie trailer video was premiered in May 2014 entitled "Run" (stylized as "RUN"). The video, filled with multiple celebrity cameos, features the couple in a variety of Bonnie and Clyde style, action and gun packed situations. The tour itself was noted to follow this same theme throughout, with similar video interludes incorporated into the production of the show. Critics generally lauded the tour, praising the extravagant set list, dynamic and detailed theme and story of the show and both artists performance abilities, however some felt the on stage chemistry between the couple was not what it could have been. Due to the large demand and tickets selling out in minutes in multiple locations, extra tour dates were added to the itinerary. The tour is set to broadcast in its entirety on September 20, 2014, airing on the US television network HBO, following the scheduled taping of the two concerts in Paris, France, where the tour will conclude.
