Watch Beyonce, Jay Z go ‘Bang Bang’ in trailer for HBO special

The Carters must really love the Sinatras.

Encouraged perhaps by her husband Jay Z’s openly Frank-style swagger, Beyoncé channels a serious Nancy vibe in a trailer for the couple’s upcoming HBO concert special, singing “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” over a tremolo guitar line similar to the one featured in the younger Sinatra’s 1966 version of the tune.

Set to premiere Sept. 20, HBO’s “On the Run” will be taped next month in Paris, where Jay Z and Beyoncé are to bring their shared summer tour for two concerts Sept. 12 and 13 at the Stade de France.

Earlier this month the lavish road show stopped at the Rose Bowl before concluding a U.S. run at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.
