Jay-Z will bring his Magna Carta tour to North America. During his Budweiser Made in America Festival, the 43-year-old rapper teamed up with concert promoter Live Nation to announce that he would add North American dates to the tour to promote his latest album, "Magna Carta... Holy Grail". The dates are expected to be announced soon.
Jay-Z is currently gearing up to hit the road for the sold-out European leg of his tour, which is set to kick off on October 3 at Manchester Arena in England. He will visit countries, including France, Switzerland, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and Germany, before wrapping up the 15-date tour in Netherlands on October 29.
It has been a busy year for Jay-Z. He announced his twelfth studio album "MCHG" June and had busy months to promote it. Coming out in July, the album sat at Billboard 200's No. 1 for two weeks in a row. The album was quickly certified Platinum, thanks to Jay-Z's $5 million deal with Samsung.
Just a few days after releasing the chart-topping album, Jay-Z joined Justin Timberlake for their joint tour, "Legends of the Summer". Last month, Jay-Z and Timberlake filmed and dropped the music video for their collaboration, "Holy Grail".
