Kanye West, Jay-Z Add Dates To Watch The Throne Tour

Megastars Jay-Z and Kanye West kick off their North American tour on October 28 in support of their joint album Watch The Throne amid much fanfare, with Atlanta getting first dibs on the roughly two month trek for the pair. However, soaring ticket demands from fans who wish to see the twin titans of hip-hop in action has inspired Yeezy and Hov to add additional shows to the tour – bumping up the tour stops to 33 dates.

New York and Chicago, the hometowns of the two, both get upgraded to two night stands along with Los Angeles. Atlanta, New Jersey, Toronto and Vancouver – already part of the original tour schedule –all share the doubled up dates as well.

The Madison Square Garden shows to be held in Jay-z’s backyard on November 7 and 8 will begin ticket sales October 21 at 10 a.m. The November 30 United Center show in Chicago tickets go on sale the same day. An additional December 13 date added for Los Angeles will have tickets going on sale that day as well.

Citi bank card members as part of the Citi Private Pass program can purchase tickets for the added four shows before the general public sales on October 19 at 10 a.m. An added incentive for show goers is that for all ticket sales, individuals will receive a digital copy of the Watch The Throne album.
