Jay-Z Reportedly Working on $150 Million Tour Deal With Live Nation For Beyoncé
Becoming new parents isn’t about to slow down Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s hustle.
According to the New York Post, Hov is working on an epic world tour for Beyoncé, having approached Live Nation about a $150 million deal for his wife to tour the world on what would be a blockbuster comeback since giving birth to their baby daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, back on January 7.
“Just weeks after the birth of Blue Ivy, Jay met with Live Nation to discuss a tour for Beyoncé,” a source told the Post. “He wanted a deal worth about $150 million, but they countered with a lower offer.”
Although this alleged proposed tour is still in the works, the worldwide trek won’t mark Beyoncé’s first performance since delivering Blue Ivy into the world. The new mother’s first performances since Blue's birth are scheduled at the Revel Resorts in Atlantic City, New Jersey’s new Ovation Hall for three nights from May 25-27, with tickets going on sale on April 6 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster.
Bringing Beyoncé back to the masses isn’t the only thing that the super couple has been working on as of late. The power pair has been seen lending their support to President Obama’s re-election campaign. On Monday night (March 19), B joined the likes of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and actor Ben Stiller to attend a dinner and Obama fundraiser hosted by Robert De Niro and wife Grace Hightower at the Greenwich Hotel in the Tribeca section of New York City.—Mark Lelinwalla
