You have a little bit more time to save up for your show outfit: The local date for the Jay-Z/Kanye West 'Watch the Throne' tour has been pushed back by about a month. The hip-hop stars were originally scheduled to hit the Verizon Center on September 29; the new date for the show, which is promoting the rappers' joint Watch the Throne album, is November 3.
The public ticket sale begins this Monday, August 8, at 10 a.m., through Ticketmaster.
Original post: Lil Wayne and Rick Ross gave a joint show in D.C. earlier this month, and now the other two biggest names in hip-hop are coming to town for a joint performance as well: Jay-Z and Kanye West will give a show at the Verizon Center on September 29.
The date is part of their Watch the Throne tour, which will promote their long-awaited joint album of the same name. Watch the Throne is set to drop on August 12. Two tracks from the project have been leaked/released so far, "H.A.M" and "Otis." Both have received mixed reviews.
