Update: Five more dates to come…
Jay-Z apparently wants to reconnect with his fans before he releases the long-awaited The Blueprint 3 later this year. Like on an super intimate, non-University of Arizona, personal kind of level. To accomplish this, the New York based hip-hop mogul will embark on a five-date U.S. tour in July that will take him to some of the country’s more intimate venues, such as The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut.
Live Nation is handling ticket sales, though based on all the pre-sales (eg., the Citi Presale, Premier Parking Presale and the Fan Club Presale), there might not be any available by the time they go on sale to the general public on May 15th. But that doesn’t matter. Remember kids, these dates are intimate!
More dates, along with details pertaining to The Blueprint 3 are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
