Texans will have several opportunities to catch rapper Jay-Z in concert this fall. After he headlines Austin City Limits music festival in October, the multi-platinum selling artist will embark on a U.S. tour to support his new album, 4:44.
The tour comes to American Airlines Center in Dallas on Nov. 7, followed by Houston's Toyota Center on Nov. 8. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 14 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.com. Tidal subscribers and Citi cardholders can gain access to pre-sale tickets beginning July 10 at 11 a.m. through Tidal.com and CitiPrivatePass.com, respectively.
The tour announcement comes on the heels of Jay-Z's latest album release, which included some highly anticipated tracks in response to Beyonce's beloved Lemonade. Since its release on June 30, 4:44 had been only available for streaming on Tidal; however, the album managed to go platinum, according to the Record Industry Association of America. It did not chart on Billboard recently because Tidal did not report its streaming data to Nielsen Music, according to Pitchfork.
Non-subscribers can now purchase the album on iTunes.
The last time the Jiggaman performed in D-FW was alongside wife Beyonce at AT&T Stadium. The couple recently welcomed their new twins, who are rumored to be named Rumi and Sir Carter.
