The kings of rap are going on tour.
The hugely anticipated pairing of Jay-Z and Kanye West – aka The Throne – will first arrive with the Aug. 8 iTunes release of “Watch the Throne,” which fans have been hearing about for months.
On that same date, tickets to their tour, including the opening Oct. 29 stop at Philips Arena, go on sale.
Fans who purchase concert tickets online will receive a digital copy of the album.
Pre-orders for the album, “Watch the Throne,” start today. If you order the deluxe version of the album at iTunes, which is set to hit other digital and physical outlets Aug. 12, you can download the track “Otis” immediately. The track hit the web last week, and features a substantial sample from Otis Redding’s classic, “Try a Little Tenderness.”
Beginning Aug. 2, go to Live Nation’s “Watch the Throne” page to get in on the ticket pre-sale for the fall tour.
