Jay-Z and Kanye West Announce Watch the Throne Tour

The supergroup will kick off a nationwide tour in September.

Published July 25, 2011

Watch the Throne's release is just around the corner, but the highly anticipated album isn't the only thing Jay-Z and Kanye West have in store. The hip hop heroes have announced that they'll be joining forces for a nationwide tour beginning in September.

LiveNation is sponsoring the outing, which will bring Hov and Ye to an arena near you starting with The Palace in Detroit on September 22. Fans can get access to pre-sale tickets by RSVPing to the concert in their hometown at the tour's website. Pre-sale tickets will be available July 28, while the general sale begins on August 8.

Watch the Throne is now set to get a digital release on the same date, although previous rumors had the album dropping a week sooner. The Otis Redding-sampling lead track "Otis" was released last week to much fanfare.
