If you missed out on Lil Nas X’s “Long Live Montero” tour, you still have a chance to experience it, this time with behind-the-scenes access.
A documentary chronicling the out music star’s 2022-23 tour will arrive on HBO Jan. 27. The documentary, called “Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero,” will take viewers on a two-month stretch of the tour as it follows Lil Nas X’s own journey of discovery and growth, all while he performs in front of large crowds on a nightly basis.
The film also shows the hit music star navigating tricky family relationships, his queer identity, and other areas of his life at a time when he was in the center of the spotlight.
The release of the documentary, which first debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last September, comes at a time when Lil Nas X is on the verge of releasing new music. On Jan. 3, he posted on X to announce plans to release a new song “next week,” though details remain scarce.
Lil Nas X’s world-shaking video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” earned three MTV music awards, one for Best Direction, given to Nas alongside video co-director Tanu Muino, one for Visual Effects awarded to Mathematic, and the Video of the Year Award, the ceremony’s top honors.
Lil Nas X is not only a great music and artist, he was awarded by The Trevor Project for showing a strong commitment to ending suicide among LGBT young people, and he was also awarded as person of the year by attitude.
