Ticket Alert

Kanye West and Jay-Z to Team Up at Tacoma Dome

Presale for this hip-hop madness starts July 28 (Update: now starts August 2).

Blinded by the bling Jay-Z and Kanye West tour together starting in September.

Believe it: Kanye West and Jay-Z have formed a hip-hop supergroup, the Throne, and plan to take their collective egos—err, new album—on the road this fall with a stopover at Tacoma Dome on October 13. The ticket presale starts Thursday, July 28, at 10am at livenation.com, but the regular sale starts the day the album drops, August 8. (UPDATE 7/28/11. Due to demand, the presale date has been moved to August 2 to accommodate concerts being added to the lineup. Regular sale date is still August 8.)

While the dynamic duo has visited each others’ stages before and produced together, their work on new album Watch the Throne is their first truly collaborative effort. Only 20 or so journalists have actually heard the LP, but it’s still generating plenty of buzz and will feature high-profile contributions from the likes of Odd Fellows’ Future’s Frank Ocean, Beyoncé, and Otis Redding. Given all the talent involved, it’ll be interesting to see if Kanye and Jay-Z can share the "throne" on stage (and a tour bus).

Want to see what the hype is all about? Stream the soulful lead track, "Otis," at watchthethrone.com or watch their previously released single, "H.A.M."
