Jay-Z announces massive North American tour

Jay-Z has unveiled the dates for a huge North American tour kicking off in October and wrapping just before the holidays on December 21.

The 47-year-old rapper will start off the run of dates on October 27 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California and will conclude with a show at The Forum in Los Angeles on December 21.

Live Nation are promoting the tour after the ‘Holy Grail’ hitmaker inked a 10-year, $200 million touring deal with them in May.

TIDAL members will be available to access a special presale from 10am EST. General tickets go on sale on Friday (14.07.17).

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that the hip-hop star’s five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy – whom he has with wife Beyonce – raps on a bonus track on ‘4.44’.

The ’99 Problems’ hitmaker’s LP was made available to stream on TIDAL last week, but now it has been released more broadly, it has been revealed a bonus track on the record called ‘Blue’s Freestyle/ We Family’ features rhymes from their little girl.

Though some of the tot’s lyrics are hard to understand, they include “boom shakalaka” and “never seen a ceiling in my whole life”.

While the track marks the first time Blue Ivy has shown off her rap skills, she has featured on a record before.

In 2012, Jay – whose real name is Shawn Carter – sampled her crying on a track called ‘Glory’, and she also featured on her mother Beyonce’s single ‘Blue’.

Jay’s tour announcement comes a month after the birth of his and Beyonce’s twins Rumi and Sir Carter.
