Jay Z announces North American Magna Carter World Tour dates

Talk about oneupmanship. The dust hadn’t even settled following Kanye West’s announcement of his Yeezus Tour when Jay Z decided to announce the North American tour dates for his Magna Carter World Tour. The rivalry/friendship between the Watch the Throne members is such an interesting dynamic to watch, especially when it results in music for fans. Still, Jay could have given Kanye this one and not stolen his thunder so early in the morning. As if the timing of his announcement wasn’t bad enough, tickets for the tour are going on sale on September 12, one day before Kanye’s Yeezus Tour tickets are available. This begs the question: If you’re strapped for cash, who are you going to go out to see, Kanye or Jay Z?

Nevertheless, North American tour dates for Jay Z’s Magna Carter World Tour are below. In the meantime, let’s all replay the “Holy Grail” video over and over until Jay hits our towns.
