The overseas trek will kick off in O2 Arena in London on May 20 and end in Birmingham’s LG Arena on June 13.

This news comes after The Throne hit 46 shows across the United States and in Canada, making over $48,000,000 at the box office.

Watch The Throne sold 436,000 copies in its first week after its Aug. 8, 2011 release. To date, Watch The Throne has gone on to sell over 1,300,000 records, having spawned singles such as “H.A.M.,” “Otis,” “Lift Off,” “Niggas in Paris,” “Why I Love You” and “Gotta Have It.”
