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
