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.
