Jay-Z surprised his European fans today.
Jay-Z’s latest album Magna Carta Holy Grail has seen unprecedented success in Britain, earning the rapper his first UK number 1 album and after a cracking performance at Wireless Festival in London this weekend, it’s clear that Mr Carter has quite a few fans across the Pond. In light of all this, Jay-Z has announced a full-blown European tour, spanning fifteen dates across the continent. Hova will be on the road throughout October, starting from October 3 in Manchester’s Manchester Arena and finishing the round on October 29, at Amsterdam’s Zigo Dome.
Wireless success prompted Hova to extend his stay in Europe.
As far as the UK shows go, tickets will go on sale from 9AM on July 19, with the London gigs priced at £70, £55, £40 and regional shows going for £65, £50, £37.50 and are available from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk. As for the rest of the European dates, no other prices and availability have not been announced as of yet. The information will be available at the individual venues.
