Jay Z and Beyoncé have trailed their joint tour with a fake movie trailer, which you can watch above.
The three-and-a-half-minute promo for a fictional film entitled Run sees guest appearances from actors Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones, Emmy Rossum and more, with Jay Z and Beyoncé appearing as a Bonnie and Clyde style criminal couple. At the end of the trailer, the caption ‘Coming Never’ appears on screen. The trailer was directed by music video director Melina Matsoukas.
The trailer is to promote the pair’s joint ‘On The Run’ tour, set to take place in the US this summer. The married couple regularly appear during each other’s live shows, with Jay Z performing with Beyoncé in London earlier this year when the Mrs Carter Tour arrived at the O2 Arena in February.
The tour will take in 16 dates through June, July and August and starts in Miami at the Sun Life Stadium on June 25. The tour will then continue through the USA and Canada, stopping at Beyoncé’s home town of Houston, Texas on July 18. The final date on the tour will come on August 6 at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.
Jay Z, Beyoncé and Solange have released a statement after footage was posted online which appeared to show Solange attacking her sister’s rapper husband in a lift. A statement given to Associated Press, issued on behalf of all of them, said “Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred”. They describe it as an “unfortunate incident”.
It adds: “But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologised to each other and we have moved forward as a united family. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same,” it concludes.
The altercation, between Solange and her brother-in-law Jay Z, took place at the Standard Hotel in New York at an after-party for the annual Met Gala on May 5.
