Jay-Z & Kanye West Announce European Tour Dates
Their album, Watch the Throne, was released on August 8, 2011 and became a platinum-seller, automatically debuting at the top of the charts. Both Kanye and Jay won “Best Rap Performance” for their hit “Otis” at the 2012 Grammy Awards.
The tour is known for its huge collaboration between the two biggest names in hip-hop. The stages are set up uniquely in every town they hit, with two rising pillars and animal effects on the big screens. “The Throne” started in October 2011 where the two hyped the crowd with their remixes and classics, while ending the show with their smash hit “Paris.” That song holds the record for eleven times played during the last show of their North American Tour. They must really love Paris… so much so that they will be performing there, twice!
Tickets start going on sale February 24.
