Jay-Z and Kayne West Revise ‘Watch the Throne’ Tour Dates
Hov and Yeezy (aka the Throne) have re-hauled their entire itinerary, pushing back nearly 20 concert dates and deleting a few cities altogether. Originally, the trek was set to kick off in Detroit on Sept. 22 but that has changed now.
According to the Live Nation website, the 'Watch the Throne' tour will now kick off on Oct. 29 in Atlanta and stretch to the East coast with dates in Philadelphia (Nov. 2), Washington, D.C. (Nov. 3) and then a two-night stint in East Rutherford, N.J. (Nov. 5 and 6). Other cities on the itinerary include Boston, Toronto (Canada), Detroit, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas and Los Angeles with more cities added in the future. Pre-sale tickets are available Aug. 2 through Aug. 8, after which they will go on sale to the public.
Meanwhile, Jay-Z has denied rumors that he is feuding with Kanye over specifics of the 'Watch the Throne' tour. "Yes, we get on each other's nerves, but that’s part of pushing each other," he said on Angie Martinez’s radio show. "We push each other to be greater… I would never disrespect that man, I have so much respect for him." In addition, Hov and Yeezy have shot a video for 'Otis' with famed director Spike Jones. No word on when the clip will premiere on MTV or BET.
