"BEYONCE'S I AM...WORLD TOUR"
A 90-MINUTE THANKSGIVING NIGHT EVENT ON ABC AIRS AT 9:30 PM/EST
On Thanksgiving night, November 25, the ABC Television Network will air a 90-minute special "BEYONCE'S I AM...WORLD TOUR" at 9:30 PM/EST. Travel the planet with one of the most dynamic forces in music, as Beyonce Knowles takes you on her 32-country, 6-continent tour. Viewers will hear her perform her biggest hits in the world's greatest venues, and will see what it takes to mount an over-the-top mega-production: the backstage moments, choreography, costumes, and life offstage. The special features guest appearances by Kanye West and her superstar husband Jay-Z.
The show weaves together more than ninety of Beyonce's performances from Croatia to Abu Dhabi to Africa, Australia and China: the sheer, backbreaking work of producing one of the most dazzling visual acts in the music world, complicated by a performer who will tolerate nothing less than perfection.
Beyonce, the 16-time Grammy winner, is famous for doing it all: costumes, music, dancing and staging. This time, she also directs: both the special and a full-length theatrical film of her tour. With previously unseen material from thousands of hours of intimate coverage, this shows Beyonce as those she is closest to see her - unfiltered, real, living a life at full throttle, without compromise.
This is Beyonce's second consecutive primetime Thanksgiving night special with ABC. Beyonce Knowles is the executive producer and director for Parkwood Pictures. The special is produced by ABC's Lincoln Square Productions, Rudy Bednar and David Saltz are the executive producers.
