Beyonce Joins HBO For New Series/Triple Shooting At Nas & Schoolboy Q Concert – Tha Wire
Last year, Beyonce brought us into her private world with her HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream and now teaming up with the network again for a 10-part concert series centered around her 2013 Mrs. Carter World Tour.
Bey’s new HBO series, Beyonce: X10 will include 10 four-minute concert segments that’ll air every Sunday at 7:55 P.M. CT, exactly five minutes before HBO’s True Blood series. You guest it, the first one will air this Sunday (June 22nd) before the True Blood season premiere.
Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter World Tour was the fourth highest grossing solo female tour in 2013 and one of the longest too. Bey’s tour lasted from April 2013 til March racking in more than $100 million in ticket sales alone.
Finally, last night (June 19th) three people were shot in a parking lot outside of the Feed The Rocks concert in Denver, C.O. staring Nas and Schoolboy Q. The concert was an outside event and took place at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Q had just performed with Nas and Flying Lotus and all proceeds from the event went to the GRASP, which ironically is a gang-rescue and support project sponsored by the Metro Denver Partners.
Jefferson County Sherif's Office spokesman Mark Techmeyer said, "We're trying to figure out what happened." That same night a tweet was sent out from the office further clarifying, "Red Rocks shooting occurred AFTER the concert, in the parking lot, not in the amphitheater. No one in custody. Park is closed. #JCSO"
What is known, following the event, three people were shot after gunshots rang out in the arena’s parking lot. Police later found the injured individuals around 11 p.m. in a white SUV, at 6th Avenue and Kalamath Street. The victims were transported to Denver Health Medical Center and are currently in stable condition. There were reportedly two more people inside the vehicle, but it’s not clear if they had any injuries at this time.
