In addition to announcing a headlining tour and a drop date for their long-teased collaborative album Watch The Throne (August 8), Jay-Z and Kanye West have declared that when they operate as a unit they are to be referred to as The Throne. OK then! The 24-date Watch The Throne tour, which kicks off September 22, will include two stops at New Jersey’s Izod Center on September 27 and 28. (Be sure to wear your Nets jerseys, in memoriam-slash-honor.)
Tickets for the tour also go on sale to the general public August 8; a Facebook RSVP to the date you’re planning on attending, however, grants access to a presale that begins on Thursday (July 28) at 10 a.m. Each ticket purchase will also entitle the buyer to a digital copy of Watch The Throne, which, hey, if you already preordered one, now you have one to give to a friend!
