Jay-Z to Join U2 on Tour in Australia, New Zealand

After recently being named hip-hop’s top earner for the year by Forbes, Jay-Z is ready to embark on a tour sure to continue to build his wealth. This fall, Jigga is hopping on tour with U2 and hitting five cities in Australia and New Zealand.

Starting November 25, the two monster acts will team up to take over the “land down under,” beginning at Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium. They will then take their combined 32 Grammys to Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth’s Subiaco Oval.

As previously reported, this isn’t the first time the two acts have joined forces. Following the devastating earthquake earlier this year, Hov and the Irish rockers recorded a song to benefit Haiti, titled “Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour).”

Tickets for the shows will go on sale September 3, starting at $39.90.—Adam Fleischer

    lol…it’s always the broke niggas always crying sellout

  • Sha

    Yeah… Jay-Z is a sell-out. He be selling out stadiums, arenas, and any other venue he plays in.

    Niggas can’t front on Jay. He didn’t hit the lotto or make money off of someone else’s fame. He built his empire off of his mind, sweat, and risks. Can’t hate on that. If he worked to get what he has, he deserves to get paid. Get money!

    1000 Kuric turd shitting ass Bono? and Jay Z?strange combination. Guess who’s not going? No hate here but where’s the US dates? Maybe Haiti itself? DR maybe? Ireland? It would be cool if they went to each other’s homelands.

  • sb

    no other rapper has come close to what he’s done in touring…Yankee Stadium??? Madison Square Garden-several times.. Now he’s doing spot dates with u2. Of coure they are both under live nation so its great for them.. However it’s a great look for a rapper who’s been around for almost 20 years..

  • Smeagol

    Will be at the New Zealand show. A shame he’s performing with shitty U2 though. Bono is just a giant piece of shit!
