Kanye West and Jay-Z to play Birmingham this summer
Date Posted: 21/02/12
A joint UK tour between American hip-hop heavyweights, Kayne West and Jay-Z, entitled the Watch the Throne Tour is set to come to the UK this summer.
The first date has been announced for Birmingham's LG Arena on Wednesday, June 13th, leaving just a few months for fans to book Birmingham hotels if they want to catch the show.
Dates in Manchester and London and expected to be added to the tour soon.
Watch the Throne was only released last year, but the pair are expected to add the next part of their saga later in 2012. The first record went platinum this month after selling over one million copies in the US.
They toured around the US and Canada on the Watch the Throne Tour at the end of 2011, receiving rave reviews across 26 dates.
It was the highest grossing hip-hop tour of 2011 and eighth highest grossing tour overall as it amassed $48.3 million (£30.5 million).
