Lil Nas X fans now have the chance to relive his Long Live Montero tour. The trek’s accompanying documentary, Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero, is heading to HBO and Max, the network announced Thursday (Jan. 4). The Hollywood Reporter was first to report the news.
The concert documentary, a diaristic look at the rapper’s life over 60 days in 2022-2023 amid his most recent global tour, will make its debut on HBO on Jan. 27 at 8 p.m. ET; the film is also set to stream on Max. Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero first made its debut last year at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Sept. 9, with two public screenings that later followed at TIFF on Sept. 14 and Sept. 16.
In an August press release regarding the documentary’s premiere at TIFF, Cameron Bailey, CEO, TIFF described Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero as “a triumphant ode to the extraordinary power of self-expression, music, and identity.” She continued, “In this groundbreaking documentary, we witness Lil Nas X challenging boundaries and reshaping the artistic landscape. The film’s captivating journey underscores the profound impact of Lil Nas X, who fearlessly brings audiences together through the universal language of music.”
The HBO and Max debut of Lil Nas’ documentary will arrive on the heels of his new era, which is set to kick off next week with a new song. He has not yet revealed the title for the upcoming track — or its respective album — but the rapper told fans on Jan. 3 that he’s gearing up to have “the greatest comeback of all time.”
